1)Downloaded the Barbarian Invasion playable demo is awesome..

http://www.gamershell.com/news/23802.html


is the expansion pack of ROme Total war.. For the people new to the RTS games.. ROme TOtal WAR is really a master piece (even for the people that only play FPS ames). Its like the flightsimulator of Swords and Arrows combat..No other game ever have allow me to have a feeling of being in an Epic battle in the past. the Engine of the game is used in the HIstory channel to recreate the most famous Battles of the past.

the demo also have a quick tutorial for people new to RTS games.

interview with screenshots..

Developers from this game never cease to amaze me with their engine graphics.. THe people that thinks their favorite games support outdoors just watch those games and later come back .. :D ..BFME2 however is an entry level RTS game.. very arcade but still is a lot of fun , i finished the first one.. and some say its multiplayer is even better.. really looking for this one too..

Holy crap, BFME2 looks amazing! I hope they make it little less idiot-proof and let us build where we want and add some more RTS elements. The first game was waaaaay too pre-planned, even in multiplayer.

Looking forward to BFME2, hope they get it right this time. I thought the first one was pretty boring.

Build where u want..... already done! :)
Many diferent armies to choose from diferent factions for total a of six.there are new factions from the popular heroes.. Naval battles , Bigger Region to fight.. and they told it will have more elements of RTS games. in short it will be a more bigger game.

This was told in BFME2 forums by the developers...

you can get more info about the game here..
their developers post frequently there...

There appear to be more screenies of BFME2. There were only four before, if I recall correctly, so there are two new ones on page one, and a simply stunning screenshot on page two. I won't say what it is other than pure awesome.

There were some great elements in BFME. The animation, sound effects and music were outstanding, better than any other RTS out there imo, even Dawn of War. It's too bad that underneath the brilliant presentation is was REALLY dumbed down. I still enjoy playing it though, fantastic game.

I loved the LOTR license, but I couldn't bring myself to play it. It was like a preschool RTS and insulted my intelligence, and I'm not a very good RTS player. ;)
