I like the idea of swords and bows over guns but have had a hard time finding similar games. Any to suggest?

Army ones are ok also. Just don't like the idea of a group of swordsman going against guns. Seems stupid.

All I heard was swords & bows so Shogun II is the game for you.

Shogun 2 actually does feature swords vs guns, but it's (mostly) historically legit

unless you can think of western shoguns that existed, then yes, its all asian races

and its a fantastic game, you'd be a fool to pass it up because of something so arbitrary

If you get the Fall of the Samuari expansion, you can eventually hire American, British, and French soldiers to fight in your army.

Just be warned that Shogun 2 has a totally different combat system that requires a lot of strategy and thinking, and has a large learning curve. The gun vs sword battles are actually pretty cool. Shogun 2 doesn't have guns and cannons until near the end of a game, but Fall of the Samurai has guns and steamships from the start.

You might like Rise of Nations. It features all the ages, from the stone age to modern age with stealth bombers, but I believe you can set an age limit so just limit it to medieval or w/e.

Also check out ANNO 1404 if you think you'd like something more economy focused.
