    I have played Age of Empires (on budget) which is good this covers the period round 0AD but I think the second one Age of Empires II covers the medieval time period and is I think in a box set with the add on. This is a real time stratergy

    If you like something sort of medieval but not as accurate but in a medieval sort of setting try Thief and Thief II although the first (the best but both top games) has creatures in it and the second steam powered contraptions (both on budget) and are both first person.

    Shogun: Total War is the prequel to Medieval, and IMO, is a better game. Get the Viking Invasion expansion pack for Medieval: Total War as well, as that is great.

    Rome: Total War is out in April, and as seen on "Time Commanders" looks pretty good.

    No other game is really similar to the "Total War" series and no other game comes close!

    The only other turn based strategy game i can recommend is buying yourself the board game "Risk", although it doesn't have the mind-blowing battles.

    I'm really enjoying neverwinter nights at the moment. I know it's more of an rpg but it certainly keeps you on your toes. You have to use different stratagies to overcome different obstacles (much like the Total war series) with the added enjoyment of an excellent story. The characteur leveling up gives you plenty of scope to make you play however you like (evil, good, mage, thief, fighter etc) and gives an excellent depth to gameplay. You can play online with like minded people (I've only just tried that tbh) and I notice play are selling neverwinter night and the expansion pack Shadows of Undrentide (which I'm currently playing) for the bargain price of £18 here:-

    Hordes of the Underdark has just arrived too so if you're into this type of game will keep you busy for months. You can also download free expansion packs of the bioware website since the game includes the tool set to creat your own adventure.:D

    Yes I think Shogun is better than Medieval - I don't what it is - perhaps the atmosphere it creates

    It's not medieval, but Rise of Nations is a great RTS.
