Couldn't resist the deal, the very idea—realistic medieval warfare!? What could be better! The graphics are rather dated, but pretty enough to still get immersed in the gameplay.

Not I. Still exploring the base game and finding plenty to do there. Will definitely look into the Viking Conquest expansion, though.
