Need a new game to play and I remember people recommending that game. I heard people got hundreds of hours of gameplay from that game

It's kind of like Total War, where you play the leader from 3rd person, behind the back. It's one of the only games to do mounted combat well. Directional attacking and blocking make combat more tactical. Some large scale battles can get pretty intense. With an editor, you can raise the active combatants to 300 vs 300 (or higher, if your machine can take it).

It's also extremely addicting. I've got about 1000 hours in it.
... even on Earth Mode.

Tons of mods also.

You start a peasant with nothing, and can become supreme king of the whole world by raising huge armies and having epic battles. I've put in many hundreds of hours in that game over the past while and it's a game I can always go back to if I'm bored.

The multiplayer DLC, Napoleonic Wars is f***ing awesome also, though really only if you enjoy that kind of time period.

Especially sweet when you become king without any other faction's help and still manage to conquer the world.
