Third Age - Total War is a total conversion for 'Medieval II: Total War - Kingdoms Expansion' that brings you into the world of Middle-earth.
-Easy Install, hard to find anything wrong with it.
-Good Support, Work around for Steam steps spelled out to leave no room for error.
-Very immersed in its genre; units look like they belong.
-Images from the movie are a great environmental touch.
-Game has yet to show a lack of depth and character in its consideration. This shows real passion.
- Players that are fans of the genre have great opportunities to play with characters from the storyline, giving players greater satisfaction and yet another boost to the immersion of the story.
- No crashes, very stable mod, no glitches, feels as if it were made by the initial developers.
- Negligible issue: game is a little slower than vanilla between turns and also during loading. I believe this is normal with most mods, and I wouldn't really call it an issue, but on slower computers may have an impact.
- Initial scroll gives you a guilt trip about possibly turning on your allies. Advisors should learn to keep their tongues from waggling lest they lose them.
Rating: 9 (based on keeping to the storyline and genre, installation, support, game play consistency, stability, and goals reached by the objective of the product). Installed using both the Steam Client using a friend's account to check his version and on my computer using a disk version.
