THRONES OF BRITANNIA is a standalone Total War game that challenges you to re-write a critical moment in history, one that will shape the future of the British Isles. With ten playable factions, you must build and defend a kingdom of Anglo-Saxons, Gaelic clans, Welsh tribes or Viking settlers. Forge alliances, manage settlements, raise armies and pursue campaigns of conquest across the most detailed Total War map ever.
The year is 878 AD, the embattled English king Alfred the Great has mounted a heroic defence at the battle of Edington, and blunted the Viking invasion. Chastened – but not yet broken – the Norse warlords have settled across Britain. For the first time in nearly 80 years, the land is in a fragile state of peace.
Throughout this sceptred isle, the kings of England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales sense a time of change approaching; a time of opportunity. There will be treaties. There will be war. There will be turns of fortune that become the stuff of legend, in a saga that charts the ascent of one of history’s greatest nations.

Ratings and Reviews
This game is not your usual Total War game. It feels much more like a Civilization game. There is much more emphasis on diplomacy and building, plus raising armies is meticulous and crushes your food supply, which upsets your citizens resulting in rebellion. And believe me, I have tried every faction 50+ turns in and NO ONE is safe from rebellion and Viking invasions. Your settlements can be taken from you effortlessly because only capitol cities can have garrisoned units. Honestly the most annoying thing about this game is that even with the “Follow AI Players” funciton turned off, the end of each turn can be deflating having to watch 30+ factions go across the screen. This is especially annoying when you have a few consecutive short turns. I just wish I would have done more research into the game before forking over $35 bucks…Hopefully you all will do your homework because this isnt what I personally was (blindly) hoping for: Medieval II w/ better graphics focused particularly on the British Isles.
Great game! Total War Fan
I have been enjoying this game alot. Since I have alot of experinece with Total War games I thought I should be the right person to try it out and leave a review. And I really do enjoy the new gameply and the flow. The changes to the gameplay allow for a more engaged experience while your taking over the land and also groverning your estates at home. Also the graphics are excellent. Overall a very well rounded Total War experience. If you like to binge on a game and have alot of time to kill, this is the one. For those who like strategy games, this is a really polished game in that respect.
Eh…. What a bummer
Even after the updated on Sept 3, the game is still so cumbersome and cluttered and generally counter-intuitive I just don’t dig playing it. It feels like a hassle to play even short times. I wish they’d stuck to the Rome 2 model but I guess everything has to change sometime.
