I had torrented it before, but decided to buy it on steam after a while. Got both expansions too. I don't regret it at all. Playing against AI all the time can get boring, since they don't make very good choices (obviously depends on difficulty, but still). With players, you never really know what will happen, which is thrilling!

I like them both; I like how in Total War I can win a battle despite being massively outnumbered or lose a battle that is a sure win based on my acts whereas in Civ you have no control on the battle outcome once it starts. I like in Civ how there is more overall strategy, trading, the different ages, etc.

Have you tried Crusader Kings II, or another Paradox Interactive game? I was previously a huge fan of the Civ series, and I logged countless hours on them - but now I'm hooked on these games, I feel like they're a bit like Civ - but with more attention to detail. Highly recommend them

Civ and Total War gives two different experiences really as well, so I think it's hard to compare them.

They provide different experiences. If you want a game where you need to focus on managing cities, Civ is for you. If you want to be a warlord and test your military strategy knowledge, go for Total War. They both have good and bad sides to them, but I like both series.

You mean like Dawn of War? A squad-based RTS where you are to kill the enemy or perish trying? Already done. Although I'm guessing that you mean something closer to how TW works, where you don't build buildings on the battlefield, but otherwise on the rest of the planet and so. Now THAT would be amazing.

Not sure if you know or not, I guess 'no'. But still.

SEGA - I.e Owners of the 'Creative Assembly' brought up the rights to Dawn of War when THQ went down.

Maybe it will happen. Maybe it will.

And I don't mean dem ****** skyrim mods, with new textures and better graphics and ****. I mean real mods.

You want to play a LOTR total war? Check
You want to play a Warcraft total war? Check
You want more factions to play with in the original game? Check
What? You think the game is historically inaccurate and would like something more faithful? double Check

I know civ has tons of mods as well, but damn son you think you can beat a real time battle with oliphaunts and balrogs? I think not.

No, to be honest i think they are still enjoying the cash flow from rome 2, or making DLC, Either way there is no other game confirmed, I dont know what they could make besides another empire medieval or shogun.

I thought that at first, I could never keep public order high enough to keep away rebellion. But I realized that there's a pattern. If you build all the building at once, (public order, food, and entertainment) everything cancels each other out to where you have a slightly higher food count and public order. It made the game super easy actually.

Holy **** i love the feel of bullets flying across the battlefield while you have yari moving around to flank. Napoleon couldn't execute this correctly seeing as guns were prominent in napoleonic era europe, but seeing as only some of japan has gone to the usage of guns, there is still a wide range of melee.

During the last two sales I've bought Shogun 2 and Empire. I love both of them. Empire just feels the best so far as far as campaign goes. I mean, I can go all over the world, start trade routes, or even play as India and go and conquer North America. Of course, I haven't tried, but it's possible. I've put 100 hours total in between Shogun 2 and Empire, although I think I should play them more.

I've bought several military games the past two sales, one weekend I think I'm going on a gaming spree and playing all of them.

I love these games, they are so good. The only reason I think they're not more popular than they already are, is because it takes time to understand what you're doing. I think I played 4-5 hours of tutorials before I understood CK2... Most people don't have that kind of time.

Don't feel blue my friend, it's not easy, but you must always understand it's not a war game, it's a Dynasty simulator in the feudal age. War is just a part of it... roleplay.. have fun. If you want an extra incentive download the Song of Ice and Fire mod and play with your favorite Game of Thrones Dynasties... be the brilliant Tywin or the elusive Bravosians and the Savage Drakkari.

It's actually really easy to get a grasp of once you understand a bit of the era's background, the history, the interface and your objective.

IMO, get the DLCs for it too, that will enhance the gaming experience. And watch some lets plays on youtube or something, that's how I go passed the complications, that and ******* around in the game.

There is no worse feeling than conquering nearly the whole of both Pommerania and Lithuania as Poland, then looking west to see that Castille inherited France, and every time there is a secession crisis, the HRE grows by at least a duchy. I should have stayed in Poland and swore fealty to the Kaisar.

The British Empire is a more accurate version of an empire, IMO, but maybe not a Roman one. The Third Reich isn't analogous to Rome because the Reich's goal was to assimilate/kill all of the conquered who were not of a desired culture. In Rome, their success in expansion came largely from being tolerant of the cultures which they conquered. And btw I never said Rome wasn't cruel and full of assholes - but it was a cool as **** civilization.
