The Best Medieval Games for 2019
A Plague Tale: Innocence
Although short, the adventure proposed by a Plague Tale: Innocence is of great richness, served by a high-quality casting. The experience offered by this French game provokes a certain number of emotions that one finds only too rarely in the current videogame industry.
Defending the islands of Brittany against the invaders is not a simple task, but it is very amusing, without a doubt. And quite pleasing to the eye with that: the cel-shading does its work very well.
Ancestors Legacy remains a game that surprised me a lot, as much for its graphic quality, its immersion in the fights as for the quality of the 40 episodes of the campaign and its unbridled multiplayer. A little fresh air (from the North) that does very great good to the RTS genre.
Dead In Vinland
A game combining management, survival, and RPG skillfully and engagingly, this is what you will get with the franco-French game Dead in Vinland. It is also a game a bit austere, which can be tamed gently if you take the time. Don’t be afraid of difficulty.
Total War Saga: Thrones of Britannia
Total War Saga: Thrones Of Britannia is a Total War among others, very beautiful and without major flaws, but which finally fails to renew the series and which is somewhat dispensable.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance
Grandiose and frustrating are the adjectives that come back the most when playing Kingdom Come: Deliverance. It is undoubtedly the best historical role-playing game (it is not difficult at the same time), and one of the best role-playing games at all, which we have been able to play.
Carcassonne – Tiles & Tactics
Carcassonne-Tiles & Tactics offers a very successful adaptation of the basic game. Even though the board version has more fun through direct interactions between players, Asmodee Digital has managed to find the right balance between preserving the basic mechanisms of the game and implementing a multitude of new elements, making the digital version neat and quite enjoyable to handle.
Crusader Kings II: the Jade Dragon
Jade Dragon is, therefore, a correct DLC to recommend to collectors and confirmed players of Crusader Kings II, as its price is not insignificant.
Stronghold 2: Steam edition
Stronghold 2 is 12 years old, and it shows. It wasn’t necessarily a good idea to take him out of the videogame retirement home. The older ones will like to rediscover some sensations by playing Stronghold 2… but for my part, I would have preferred to stay on my old memories.
Kingdoms and Castles
Kingdoms & Castles is a good little game. Small game because graphically the textures are simplistic, the price also: 9,99 € on Steam. The different seasons as well as the problems (attacks, diseases…) are exciting and make the game demanding, especially with the demands of the citizens (coal, water…)…
Stronghold Kingdoms is not bad in its gameplay, but in its finishing and its coating with the seedy free-to-play sauce seeking to spin the license to the end. The principle of the game lends itself well to that of a mobile F2P, but not its appearance or controls.
Ken Follett’s The Pillars of the Earth
In the absence of the sequel, it is difficult to give a definitive opinion on Pillars of the Earth, as the score may vary depending on the impact of our choices, the variation of the settings, the script and your taste for the game.
