Default Is it worth for a TW fan?

I have and played (and still play) every Total War games. Is it Real Warfare: 1242 or it will be like a Medieval II clone?

Hi,

I am a Total War player as well and these games can coexist next to each other well.
Total War has a great campaign mode, thats why I still play it, but Real Warfare has a much deeper battle engine and much more interesting maps. It also feels more balanced.
It has a way steeper learning curve then Total War battles and winning battles is therefor much more rewarding. The battle AI is far supreme than the Total War AI as well. Yet Total War has more diversity in terms of unit types and faction specific units.

Both games got there pro's and cons and to me, both games were well worth the purchase

Thanks. I'm thinking on giving it a try, especially now that Impulse has it on sale...

Hi all,
Im new here, I am Total War fan, and especially Medieval 2.
I purchased XIII Century: Blood for Europe last week, and it is good, different than total war games, more tactical needed and any small mistake can lead to certain defeat, thats why I like it about.

I see this forum is not active much, is there any other forums that more fans of the game keep posting, like tactics & strategy, units discussion & factions guides?

Thanks alot

There are Russian forums, but i'm not aware of another English forum dedicated to the series. Feel free to ask here, i'm sure experienced players will answer your questions.

I am a TW guy too. I just bought VIII Century yesterday because it looked pretty cool.

I think your going to see a lot more TW guys coming over here as time goes by.

I do think that 1C is making a marketing mistake by introducing Bordino and Napolean, they should be doing Rome or ancient if they want to make serious coin.

I hope I can see more guys from TW coming here, to shock CA and then we will have real competition.
I agree with you, Napoleaonic & Amreican Civil War wont be good, since alot of developers are doing RTS based on that era, sticking in medieval era (with different campaigns) will be the best, also 14th to 16th century will be great, no much games touched this era, also as you said Ancient will be good.

Uhm, what we are making? We didn't announce any games about Napoleonic era so far.
