Battlefield 1942 – s a 3D first person shooter game,published by EA and developed by Digital Illusions Creative Entertainment.
Unlike in previous games of this nature,in Battlefield 1942 it’s not only important to kill your enemies but you also have to hold to certain control points around the map.By capturing these control points you are allow to reinforce them by enabling soldiers and vehicles to spawn in a given area and by doing so you also reduce enemy reinforcements.
The default game play mode, Conquest, centers on the capture and control of control points; once a team captures a control point, its members can respawn from it. When a team loses control of all their control points, they cannot respawn. And if no one is alive, the team with no “spawn” points loses.
Games are composed of rounds. A team wins the round when the other team runs out of tickets. A team loses tickets when its members are killed, but also when the other team holds a majority of the capture points on the map (typically when a team holds the majority of the capture points). Therefore, sometimes the winning team must hunt down straggling or hiding enemy forces at the end of a round.

Medieval II Total War – Medieval II Total war is a game of turn based strategic rounds and real time tactically oriented battles released in 2006.

The campaign allows the player to assume control of a faction of the time period, and build a civilization, both economically and militarily in order to conquer other factions. Gameplay consists of controlling the faction’s military, economic, and social systems in large campaign maps. During the player’s turn, armies, fleets, and agents can be moved on the map. When an army engages another army, the player can choose to fight the battle personally in the battle mode, or automatically calculate the outcome.

The goal of the campaign depends on which type of campaign is played. The short campaign requires the player to defeat one or two enemy factions (for example, Holy Roman Empire must defeat its historical enemies Milan and Denmark) and control at least 15 settlements. The long campaign requires the player to control at least 45 territories and one or two significant cities, which are faction specific, such as Jerusalem, Granada, Rome or Constantinople.

Any nation conquered in the Grand Campaign will be unlocked as a playable faction, with the exception of the Papal States, Mongols, Timurids, Aztecs (only encountered in the New World, or in the late period) and Rebels. Completing the Grand Campaign on any difficulty level unlocks all factions as playable.
