Medieval Kingdom Wars is an extensive strategy game that combines elements of RTS (Real Time Strategy) and Grand Strategy sub-genres. The action of this production takes place in historical realities - it allows us to play the role of a smaller lord who serves his lord in medieval Europe (1336). An independent company Reverie World Studios is responsible for the creation of this title.
The gameplay in Medieval Kingdom Wars brings to mind what we know from the Total War series made by Creative Assembly. The game offers an extensive strategic layer, as well as the ability to manage cities and participate in battles - everything happens in real time. The creators have also included in their title some elements associated with the rogulike genre - the production records our progress on an ongoing basis and we are not able to return to the old state of the game. Every decision is final and every error has its consequences.
We can start the game as one of 50 different heroes. Moving around the map, we occupy areas, acquire raw materials and form alliances - this is responsible for the feudal diplomacy system, which allows us to acquire laymen. With time we can even turn against our lord and lead a rebellion - then we become king and get access to completely new opportunities (e.g. granting land to individual lords). Proper management of our lands is very important - we have to develop cities, assign tasks to peasants or erect buildings. At the same time, we also supervise the kingdom on a macro scale and take care of appropriate technological development (several hundred different inventions known from the real world await to discover).
In the course of the game we often fight our rivals. What is important, during the battle we directly control our troops, and the scale of the clashes is really epic - up to 120 battalions can take part in them, in which we can find dozens of realistically reconstructed types of units and battle machines. Battles also have different targets and mechanics - apart from ordinary battles of troops we can take part in sieges (both as an attacker and a defender).
Medieval Kingdom Wars also offers mod support and a powerful world editor that, along with several other tools, allows you to create your own modifications without any problems.
In Medieval Kingdom Wars we can play alone or with others. The production offers a fabricated tutorial (consisting of 9 missions) and an extensive campaign, which can be played out on our own or in cooperation with our colleagues. Additionally, the title Reverie World Studios allows you to play single battles (so-called skirmishe) in multiplayer mode.
Medieval Kingdom Wars has a very nice, three-dimensional graphic design. The game world looks very impressive, delighting players with beautiful landscapes and spectacular light and weather effects. Nothing can be accused of being well-made, nicely animated models of individuals and residents. The fun is accompanied by a pleasant soundtrack, which was recorded with the use of real instruments and harmonizes well with the atmosphere of this production.
