    It's not easy to port complex strategy games to game consoles, but the gamepad works so well as if Grand Ages: Medieval was made for the Playstation 4 right from the start.

    It’s not as balanced as its counterparts, but it’s still a really fun game.

    It's probably not a game that you're going to spend too long playing online, and the AI is generally too soft for its own good, but Grand Ages: Medieval is the kind of game that, every time I sat down to play it, I'd lose time and end up playing for a half dozen hours or longer.

    With so few games in this genre available on the PS4, it fills the void adequately, providing an engaging experience that'll likely take up much of your time if you can get past the problems.

    An elaborate strategy experience, hurt by mediocre graphics and a disappointing fighting system. It's a shame we can't properly read the letters on the screen either.

    A fine option for those on PS4 craving more strategy. [Issue#167, p.93]

    In an attempt to please all kinds of strategy players by adding city building, trading and wars, Grand Ages: Medieval miserably fails on all accounts.

    The graphics are beautiful and the game is to a very big extend reminds me of Total War series, however a bit more boring to be honest, with lack of Total War battles. However, it fills a big gap of that genre of games on PS4. For me it's a clear 9/10 (at least).

If you want to go to war with another faction you must to have a solid economy and this is a very realistic thing that i love of this game. if this game had a better political/diplomacy system
    it would be a better strategy game but is a very good option if you only have a PS4 for example the perfect mix between complexicity and enjoyable experience!

    A beautiful game. It reminds me of playing The Settlers on Amiga, years ago, one of my most favourite games, so high praise indeed. TheA beautiful game. It reminds me of playing The Settlers on Amiga, years ago, one of my most favourite games, so high praise indeed. The controls on PS4 are very well implemented, which makes it a joy to play. The graphics are tremendous. An update has given the option to increase text sizes, which was much needed. I've played this for about a month now and am really enjoying it. I love the European setting (I'm from the UK), it feels very authentic. The pace is just about right and there is plenty to do. Even my wife has started playing it. I wouldn't be surprised if we're still playing it in a year's time. Expand

    I have been playing this for about one and a half days, since there are no user reviews yet I thought I would put something up. If you likedI have been playing this for about one and a half days, since there are no user reviews yet I thought I would put something up. If you liked Civilization you will love this game. Some of the messages are poorly translated from another language but not the majority. I read somewhere that the text was too small but I have not had that issue on a 42" screen. I have yet to complete the campaign mode which is essentially the training mode. The booklet included with the game is vague at best and the in-game tips menu is hardly better. Trying to find out how to play the game on message boards is also a no go, all information available is about the PC version. My big gripe about the game is that you are not provided with any real instruction on how to play. You will be frustrated, be prepared. There is no system link capability on this game. If you want to play someone in your household you both have to get online, really disappointing.

    That being said, it is worth buying. There is no load time and I haven't noticed any glitches yet. If you like strategy games this one will not disappoint, once you spend way to long figuring it out with no instructions that is.

    By far the best grand strategy game on PS4. A bit tricky to remember all commands on the hand-control, but most of it is very intuitive. ABy far the best grand strategy game on PS4. A bit tricky to remember all commands on the hand-control, but most of it is very intuitive. A con that on the same time is a pro is the sieges of other towns that are both boring and therefor very realistic. I totally love that they have not been tempted to put in any anachronistic elements but rely on the base wich is the economic trade-system which itself would carry this game pretty far! Expand
