I've been playing Total war games since early 2000's. But this one is the most frustrating. It is perhaps because I know Med Tot war and Empire Tot war that I'm having problems. Firstly there's no user guide at all that I can find, a few films that don't cover everything are not my idea of a user guide.
I can't even get Alfred to declare war FFS, even having marched an army to somewhere I want to fight! I cannot find an answer even to that question, the box to declare war is not active so it won't let me. So frustrating!
