Which TW?

CaptainRadishCaptainRadish Posts: 18Registered Users
Hi guys. So I recently bought Rome 2 and am enjoying it a lot. I am interested in this period of history, as I am with most European history to do with empires and wars. I can’t decide what my next purchase should be, as I’d like something more modern. I don’t really know myself what time period I want, something to do with Britain as the equivalent of Rome, plenty of other cool empires, maybe Holy Roman Empire, or Prussia, Austria, perhaps the Byzantine empire in the east and Poland Lithuania looks cool. As you can see I myself don’t really know what’s what, as all European history after the 5th century seems the same to me. What game do you guys think captivates the fun of imperialism?

    For Imperialism? Probably Empire would be best. It covers more of the world than any other TW but it is rather dated now but I still enjoy it.

    As do I. Wrapping up a Swedish, extra long, campaign right now - again.

    Funny you should say that dge1. I've just finished a Russian campaign where the Swedes were consigned, as bogeymen, to the Land of Myth and Legend. :)

    Empire's well worth a look even though 10yrs old this week and a bit clunky. I like seeing the Marathas appearing in Nevada or Iceland.

    Hopefully CA will eventually get around to Empire2.
    And make the Pirates a playable faction this time. Whatever were they thinking?

    Cool cool, is empire better than napoleon then? Also how does medieval 2 compare? It looks quite good also.

    Empire is much bigger than Napoleon. I prefer Empire but do like the Peninsula campaign with Napoleon.

    Medieval2 I haven't played since Rome2 came out. It was fun with the Mongol hordes and discovering new lands and people to annoy, but dozens of ai single stack Byzantine armies getting jammed up trying to get through the Amanus mountains make for a long mid game end turn.

    Napoleon is a nice game but it's more limited in scope. Focus is mostly in Europe and mostly about war. Empire does have more internal build up for me.

    Ok so empire it is, and I know I’ll probably get both medieval 2 and empire eventually, but right now, which one is better? Or more fun? They both seem to have an advantage over Rome 2 in the fact that I’m interested in more factions not just Rome 😂

    Empire is better, medieval 2 is a little outdated now.

    Good idea to install Darthmod for Empire too: http://www.twcenter.net/forums/showthread.php?562420-DOWNLOAD-DarthMod-Empire-v8-0-Platinum

    Empire is better for you.
