An Imperial tercio, supported by pilgrim camp followers, is torn apart by a French regiment of foot. Here the Imperial general gloriously charges into the block of French pikemen, only to die seconds later.

    1. And I shall specify that this is from Medieval 2 Total War.

    2. I can’t see that well but are the French using Greek Pikes and the Byzantines on armoured horseback?

    3. Rome Total War was one of the best PC games I have ever played.

    4. I like this game. I too played Rome Total War. Badass game. If only they had it for Xbox 360. The new one looks amazing, features tall ships too: Empire: Total War.

      • It certainly looks good, but I haven’t had the chance to play it. What has always disappointed me is the fact that Medieval 2 Total War stops in the early 16th century, and Empire Total War begins in the 18th Century, leaving a lack of 17th Century gaming. I’ve tried to rectify that problem, but certain elements of the 17th Century are hard to add in and incorporate. And usually after the Timurids enter the game, most factions except for Milan tend to die out, and it turns into a Milan/Timurid clusterfuck, with Denmark, the Moors and the Papist factions sitting on the sidelines.

    5. Oh man awesome I gotta play this game.

      17th century wouldn’t do much for me? I think? Lot’s of reloading large riffles. Mid sixteenth century mercenary type stuff would be a laugh and I’ve always wondered why there’s never been a big game about that?

    6. Why would they charge straight into a cluster of pointy sticks? I imagine the horses running towards them and then being like “Oh F@*% This”
