    Re: Explain to me the appeal of Medieval 2

    It might be worse compared to Medieval1 (and also the newer games), but not many players know the oldest TW-Games. It's some sort of generation-question as the series started already 15 years ago;...

    Didn't stop it from conquering Finland during the 12th and 13th century already, and starting early tensions with the Russian principalities. And what exactly do you mean with unified? Many medieval...

  6. Re: Which TW game has the best economy/trading/management/diplomacy system?

    I would say the newer games offer more options and decisions in this regard. From Empire:TW to Shogun2 and now Rome2/Attila you get more and more internal decisions and tasks on the campaign map plus...

    I do not own Shogun2 and Rome2 yet, have mostly played STW1, MTW1, Rome1 and Empire. While the last one is way too easy with all the passive AI-factions I can remember losses in all others:

    Well I second the OP.

    The name 'Total War: Attila' is really a bad choice. When making a remake why not naming it as such (BI 2). Another option would be 'Fall of Rome' or something like that, as...
