Real Warfare 1242 reviews and comments

Total War template Break...... And very very very strange. Here There is only battle-missions (you perform as Alexander Nevsky), more or less historical. And all... There is no map with the provinces for gains, there is no clear connection between the battles (I'm talking about the story, there is little history here), there is nothing that makes such games playable and interesting. Tactical fights, of course, well done, but it's just a little of what should give a similar game. Drown the Teutonic People! 6.5 of 10:)

The Game is clearly similar to Medieval 2 Total War, the graphics of course better, but the physics leaves a zhilat of the best. If at that time on those Kompah game Tormazila now on the Ultra at 1920х 1080 p with 8smoothing and filtering textures is 35 fps, this is certainly something from the area Ok OK I understand the units each performs its function understandably. The Game is a kind of course not bad, like the 13th Century Ručis, but 1 C, made a parody of Medieval2 TW. Missions are boring, units look like one whole, no matter it! My Score Game Graphics 6.7 of 10 Physics 4.1 of 10 Interest in the game 4.0 out of 10 the Game got its rating. 1C When will you learn To make games?

So. After Playing in THIS time I came to the conclusion that THIS is nonsense full. Let's start in order. Actually, the game is a totalvarovskie fighting in the days of Alexander Nevsky. The Pictures are beautiful, not I bet. But After playing this game you understand. That not everything is so joyful. Run it so that it worked, I was able to on the ancient computer friend. On my in battle all the textures were lost except for the badges of the detachments and minimap. All BLACK. Plus this parapet was jerking off in the main menu. Having Played a friend I began to yawn. Performance is bad. There's only a couple of tactics you use in battle. And that's it. So we play. Brad, I do not advise. 3/10
