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!
