RE: Rome 2 Total War
Popped my Total War cherry a few weeks ago with Empire, and bringing the Indians all the way to Sweden, overland, was awesome. Any TW games that you consider better than that one?

Besides Rome 2, of course.

Ignorance is bliss. Better than that is actually knowing what the Censored is going on.

Honestly, they're all fucking good.
The least good was probably Napoleon, but even that is awesome.

Rome TW was probably the best in the sense that there are plenty of different units (as opposed to say Shogun 2 where it was very much a triangle system of sword beats spear, spear beats horse, horse beats archer, archer beats sword sort of thing), like for example the Roman factions had unique distinctive Roman units (legions for example), or the Carthaginians had elephants and camels and stuff etc.. Each faction was unique (or at least had unique elements) yet it was all roughly (ish) balanced (if you don't take into account a few OP units...).
It just felt like a great strategy game.
Empire I think has the same downside (if you can call it that) that Shogun 2 has, in that each faction plays roughly the same, the only difference being location (ie: Britain is an island nation v Russia which is.. well.. Russia.. Or in Shogun, Date faction is at the very top of the map compared to say Takeda which are right in the center surrounded by everyone...).
BUT, as I said, all of them are great.

Though...:
Empire > Napoleon
Everything > Medieval II

I don't talk gay, I don't walk gay, it's like people don't even know I'm gay unless I'm blowing them.

Huh. I know what's next on my 'to play' list, then, thanks. What's with the Medieval II hate, though? From what I've heard it's on par with TW.

RE: Rome 2 Total War
Just don't like it as much as the others. If I remember correctly it just felt like one big gunpowder race.
In saying that, it has been a while and it is my least played Total War.
I might reinstall it actually.

Certainly give it a shot if you like, see for yourself.

Will do. It'll be a good month for strategy, with EU IV and all. But that's another thread entirely...

RE: Rome 2 Total War
I started Total War with Medieval+Viking Invasion, and loved it even with its many glitches (ie. a one-man cavalry unit causing one hundred casualties at the end of the battle). I've played MTW, RTW, M2TW, and ETW.

I find Total War campaigns are a good way to force myself into challenges. When you play a campaign, you can't always choose your battles, and you might have a small force of crap units being attacked by a superior AI force. Fighting a seemingly hopeless battle is actually great fun. It is very different from multiplayer or Skirmish, where you get to choose what you use and where you fight.

If something can be destroyed by the truth, it might be worth destroying.

I remember when I first started playing Rome, I just made a giant army of cheap cavalry units and just used steamrolled everyone before they could make any heavy infantry to defend themselves. Now, all I do is just play Greek Citystates and spam armored hoplites from Sparta and pretty much defeat everyone.

If you're playing Rome: Total War without Europa Barbarorum, you're doing it wrong.
