Well I have never played a TW game but I have played and loved the Age of Empire games. However I was told here, on this forum, that TW is nothing like AE games and that if I have not played a TW game before to not start with this one as it is too difficult to get into.
So is that true or not? For someone with only AE experience would the learning curve bore me to death?

Shogun 2 doesn't feel any more complex to me than Empire or Medieval 2 ... but then I've been playing Total War for a long time now. It does feel a little more difficult than the previous games though. If you're looking to get into Total War, you should pick the game set in the time period you like most and then keep in mind that these games a more slower than Age of Empires. Complexity can be kept to a minimum by playing on Easy or Normal, where most of the in depth statistics don't matter so much until you get a handle on the basics.
Also keep in mind, 90% of the text in the Total War games is just history/flavor. So don't be intimidated when you open a unit's/building's stat card and see a wall of words.
