    I'm still playing and it is still kicking! Best TW title of the series even after trying almost all of them from Shogun 1 and onwards.

    I would like to at some point. For some reason I have recently got back into TW, and was amazed to discover that my new (non-gaming) laptop can actually play MTW 2. So I played it for a bit, and I also enjoyed it too.

    However I soon reached a point where, playing as Sicily, that I was essentially "made", i.e. my kingdom was large enough such that I could easily produce enough troops to fend off and destroy other nations, and I could easily absorb any initial loss of provinces and quickly retake them. I haven't returned to it since as it's inevitable that I will soon end up at war with my new neighbours, which will require me to produce more stacks, and I'll steam roll them. In the initial stages there was quite a strong chance than things wouldn't go my way, e.g. the Moors would successfully defend North Africa or another Italian faction would give me serious trouble on the peninsula, but now I'm big and I'm safe.

    With the original MTW there was always a sense that a civil war could rip your empire in half at any time. You constantly had to worry about your general's loyalties.

    The chessboard style campaign map was also much easier for the AI to handle, and also resulted in more decisive battles. In MTW 2 I always end up in a situation where I have many stacks and so does the next largest empire. We clash and after a lot of battles containing full stacks, it's a siege-fest and eventually I win. It's very easy to pick off the AI armies one by one, but the chessboard style map doesn't allow that as all opposing armies in a province either fight or retreat. Hence battles are more decisive, and the BAI was also generally better then too.

    There are some things better about the new TW games. For example, the enhanced diplomacy, an area I think that MTW lacks compared to modern titles, but then at least it has an AI which can effectively use it. Graphics too.

    Overall I would love an amalgamation of the two styles. A chessboard style campaign map, but with the enhanced diplomacy available in modern titles.

    Completely agree with you bro.


    Though I'm psyched about the release of a new title in the Total War Series, nothing beats these games. Truly wonderful classics that still have a place on my shelf. The game mechanics in itself is, in my opinion, the best in the series. There's virtue in simplicity. I always devote 2 hours worth of gameplay at least (My French campaign is still going strong even after all these years) before moving on to my other saves in RTW, M2TW, and so on.

    I'm new to Medieval 1 and it's pretty fun. Even though I still play newer Total wars I usually play this once in an while for some simple fun with an ai that actually fights back.

    Recently bought Medieval and started a new canpaign. The battles were a bit strange at first, but after some modding, am having lots of fun.

    Yeah, it's only the controls that put me off a little but other than that it's quite fun.

    Still playing. Just started an Aragon campaign yesterday.




    I've been playing a good amount of Shogun 2 the last several days, as I *finally* have a PC that can run it (yay!). I'm enjoying it so far, but it also put me in the mood to fire up MTW/VI again.


    Having played MTW for a few hours yesterday, I think I have to admit I still like it better than Shogun 2.


    True, the latter's AI is actually pretty impressive (it may very well be the best in the series to date -- yes, even more so than in STW & MTW). It also has a host of gameplay improvements (especially with regards to UI), and the voice-acting, artwork, and the music (Jeff recycled some of the pieces from the original STW, which I appreciate) are generally well-done. I don't think I'm ever really going to care for the 3D campaign map, but the battle maps look very good, units aren't horribly unbalanced (at least that I've noticed), and terrain matters again (unlike in RTW -- argh!). All in all, this is almost certainly CA's best game in the last decade.


    Despite all that, however, Shogun 2 just doesn't...grab me the way the first two games do. I find it doesn't quite have the same level of atmosphere, of immersion, that MTW/VI and the original Shogun do. When I play STW, I really *feel* like I'm a daimyo leading my clan in a struggle for supremacy; when I play MTW/VI, I truly *feel* like a king/duke/caliph/etc. working to lead my people to preeminence. When I play either of those two, I really get sunk into the world, and almost forget I'm playing a game. I think it's some combination of the those two titles' soundtracks, voice-acting, and parchment-style artwork (including the Risk-type campaign map) that makes a difference; it gives the aesthete in me a big metaphorical stiffy.

    In contrast, Shogun 2 feels (ironically) a little more abstract, and sort of like an intellectual exercise. Now that can be enjoyable in its own right too, and as I said earlier, I am having fun playing it. I just don't get the same level of immersion from it, however.

    I don't know; we'll see. I'm still early into my experience playing the game, so it's entirely possible I'll change my mind later on and declare Shogun 2 to be the proverbial "bees' knees" after all. At least for the time being, though, MTW/VI and STW retains their places on my personal "all time greats" list when it comes to PC games.

    I actually started playing MTW after I played RTW and M2TW. I enjoyed hours and hours especially with the Welsh in the VI campaign. I've recently went back playing it and found out about some mods (Pike and Musket!!!!!!!!!!) and fell in love with it again.

    No longer playing TW... it has to end sometime I suppose after more than a decade. To those still playing: keep those enemy kings fleeing upon their spavined nags...

    Still playing, I just discovered the game along with these forums yesterday. I immediately downloaded Stainless Steel 6.4 and started a campaign with the Moors. It's very challenging so far and I'm having a great time fighting off the Spanish Reconquista.

    And I agree with both of you. The atmosphere of this game was amazing.

    The risk style campaign map made this game so intriguing. You always had to wait for the right moment to invade another territory, since you know that other factions stood with their stacks in the neighbouring territory and would often exploit the situation. Also, you couldn't defend provinces so easily by recruiting some militias and slaughter them in the endless siege battles. And losing your province really hurt because many expensive buildings got destroyed.

    The only things I miss from the newer games are the diplomacy options and the possibility to field multiple stacks at the same time.

    Very hard to beat STW and especially MTW at atmosphere. The feeling when the music was playing and you were planning out your campaigns on the chess-style map, great stuff!

    Still playing MTW.

    Once in a while, but still playing, because it's a wonderful game. Add BKB/XL/Redux and you're set.
