    Icon5 M2TW or TATW

    What do you consider better, M2TW or TATW? Simple as that.

    Personally, I think TATW is better than the game it's based on. M2TW has boring units that are the same in many factions, cavalry charges are ineffective, portraits suck, tutorial videos are almost the same, there are many factions you can't play, and... well that was it. I just played M2TW because it's told to be easier than TATW, and I hated it. Trololol!
    (yeah, yeah, I'm fin player of TATW 3.2...

    You answered your own question. There really is no contest.

    They are both good; I enjoy the historical aspect of M2TW (I always play with SS though, if I'm playing the real-world map), although sometimes it's just fun to play with monsters and elves in Tolkien's rich setting.

    Overall I play much more TATW than SS.

    What do you mean I answered my own question? I told that I liked TATW more, and now I ask your opinion.

    Hardly a fair comparison.

    You mean the deafult Medieval II game? If so then there is not a question. TATW can not even be compared with it. It is in an entirely different level. M2TW is completely out of TATW`s league.

    To be honest, Third Age is by far the better game.
    King Kong and the whole Team set it to a whole new level... amazing, if you consider that the engine has been released 6 years ago and is based on RTW.

    "The Lord of the Rings" is a licensed trademark. I am quite certain that this Mod would have made it into a Standalone version otherwise (take DayZ for example).
    This part of the forum (Hosted Modifications -> Third Age) is still one of the most visited sites on this board.

    I normally play games for 10-20 hours and than they are living a lonely live in my cupboard. My computer changed 2 times since 2009 and Third Age is still on my hard drive.
    Its the combined magic of Lord of the Rings + the Modding-Work of the Team which makes this game my all time favorite and the best Lord of the Rings game created to date.

    Since all mods are supposed to add and enhance the total war experience, all mods could be considered better than the original. Of course, imcomplete total modifications and betas can provide a worse experience.

    Which one is best, Nehrim or Oblivion...

    Not a great idea to ask on a Nehrim submod forum eh? (Though Nehrim IS best)


    Back on topic: TATW >>> M2TW for me.

    But I also enjoyed playing M2TW, which can't be said for many un-modded games.

    First of all ,u compare the vanilla game with a great mod that has his bases on the vanilla? pfff...
    Second the most accurate poll would be Medieval 2 vs The Kingdoms Expansion,this time the answer would be Kingdoms
    just for the answer i voted Third Age Total War

    in relation with ur poll ,i ask all of you...Third Age or Stainless Steel ? thats the real question...

    I went the neutral option as TATW vs vanilla M2TW really is not comparitive.

    Thats a better question. I find both are great to play and generally I like having either one om my computer as I have the option to stop slaying orcss and go and re-create history instead. Mind you the last 4 months has been nothing but TATW.

    personally I can't compare.
    both games are nice to play and it depends on what I want atm.
    another example: if I'm hungry for apples, I'll eat apples - if I'm hungry for pears, Ill eat pears.

    That's not a fair question, TATW is way out of M2TW's league. TATW or SS would be a better question. I'd still go with TATW though.

    It's improved vanilla game. I don't think it quite reaches TATW epicness but one could argue that it actually has better gameplay.

    Why are you even comparing a mod to vanilla ?

    It's not a total conversion like TATW since there are still a lot of vanilla units and some of the factions have near-identical rosters, but it's a great Medieval mod. It's the only way I'll ever play in that theater.
