I'll try to make this simple. Medieval 2 Def edition was my first total war purchase. I'm late to the game. Bought it 6 months ago. Decided to buy it first due to the classic reviews and How well it had seemed to age. One thing to note. I'm a sucker for custom or multiplayer battles.
Medieval 2 has so much variety in each faction that its amazing. Seriously. The aged graphics make the game more enjoyable actually. Its simple yet beautiful during battles. But if that's not enough here are some reasons to get it.
1. Third Age/Divide and Conquer Mod Want a Lord of the rings complete Total war experience with brand new units and factions from the lore not to mention divide and conquers polished State with nice blooms and glimmers of the suns rays off of shiny armor. You can't play any of those If you don't have medieval 2 definitive edition. And The LOTR Mods are free
2. The elder scrolls TW Mod Another free conversion mod. Putting you in the elder scrolls universe. All I need to say. You need medieval 2 def edition to download this.
3. (a under rated mod putting you in the first English civil war and the only mod to do so) For King or Country. A smaller Conversion Mod. But great for those who love The Gunpowder battles and Not only that but each unit Is named and based after real Units named under the commanders that they fought with.
I could go on but the LOTR mods and Elder Scrolls Mod are too amazing not to list. Seriously if you don't know about them and love medieval II then download them asap
