yeah so tomorrow i'm gonna get either rome total war or medieval 2 total war and i need some opinions. which game do you think is better? (i know that there are gonna be biased answers so i made the a thread asking the same thing on the rome total war forum and i wanna see which forum likes the other game better)
The graphics and campaign map are majorly improved in Medieval 2 but I find the battles incredibly boring. It feels like there's less of a selection of units to use besides different cavalry units all which feel nerfed compared to Rome and the infantry all act like they're one step above peasants and worth nothing more than to be a free upkeep garrison.
I like the gunpowder units but it takes so many turns to unlock them that I've usually already beat the grand campaign by the time I've unlocked them.
I got tired of playing Medieval 2 a lot sooner than I did Rome even with the kingdoms expansion.
I also had to upgrade my computer to play Medieval 2.
I've played them both so much by now that I'm really just dying to get my hands on the new Empire Total War.
In terms of gameplay, I would have to say that Medieval 2 outclasses Rome on a lot of levels. In replay value, it's the other way around. Medieval 2 really didn't have anything that kept me from replaying the game. Mods are a different story for both games as Rome has a lot more and of better quality. --- What's so special about The Boss? She beat Jesus in an arm wrestle, that's what! -WallyFeliz
