Myst.. how are the graphics in Medieval Total War.. Ive heard of that game, but never played.. Its during the Crusades right.. You can play as either Richard Lionheart or Saladin??? Im thinking of buying either that game or the game 'Rise of Nations' where you try to take over the world..

For of all, Watcher! I've played Call of Duty n stuff man! These days I'm obsessed with Medieval Total War and Destination Berlin! As for Indus, Medieval Total War is awesome! You can play as any empire you want! The Almohads (the Muslims), The Turks, The Egyptians, The French, English, Scotish, Germans, Italians, etc etc. The one you're talking about (involving Richard Lionheart and Saladin), I believe that one is Age of Empires, a totally different game. MTW involves kinda board game-play time thing plus involving real time battles and wars if you wish to play so (personally commanding the attack or defense i.e.) or you can let the computer automatically decide the result for ya. I think you should get the game and enjoy!

Myst, is it better than Age of Empires in terms of battlefield graphics and simulation.. Age of Empires was pretty nice, but it didnt have much of a storyline.. does MTW have a story line for whichever empire you choose to play with..

oh also, is it possible to play online against others.. IF so maybe after I practice a while I can play against you head-to-head..

I THINK you can play online (not sure). But yeah! The story line is definitely way better and the graphics too cuz it takes you to fight the battles as if you were there on the battle-field yourself! In Age of Empires it was more like you were sitting on top of the battlefield and moving forces. Both are excellent games in their own realm I must say!

You must first have market and trade commodities in required region. Then you mustt have a ships in waters adjacent to the port all the way to the other port you want to make trade with. For exmpl, if you want your port in palestine to trade with port in valencia, You must put a ships in all the waters between plaestine and valencia. also, on the way, any port that enter the chain, expl, port in egypt will add to your trade list. If there is any hostile ship entering the chain or one of the ship in the chain destroyed, then the trade line will be cut.

To ensure safety of sea trade route, besides the ship on the chain, assembled a fleet of fast and powerfull ships that can jump two water region at 1 turn as a fast reaction force either to plug the gap (if one of the ship in the route destroyed) until the replacement arrive or to thwart of hostile vessel looking to disrupt your trade route.

Re: PC GAMES...(Defence/Military related)

Rainbow Six series are known for their realism, but they seems to went a bit off the edge. CQB has much more intense and faster than pictured in the game itself(although not as exaggerated as CS).

America's Army suffers some problems with the game engine. Unreal engine are incredibly detailed and smooth, but takes a heavy toll on CPU slower than 2GH. My computer, P4 1.6GH and Geforce 4 64mb video card has a hard time running it. So does alot of my buddies. But you won't see much of this problem in Rainbow six due to lot less open terrain.

If you truly want to get a feel for infantry combat, I recommend Operation Flashpoint. Although graphics are not as beautiful as the other two, it does a good job on creating that battlefield atmosphere. As a member of the army reserve, I can tell you that this is the closest game to the real thing I played so far.

I'm not really a big fan of RTS, but I do play C&C Generals. Nothing beats the feeling when you reduce your opponent's base with overlord tanks.
