As a Christmas present for my 16 y/o brother. He spent months playing Rome Total War and Medieval Total War and their expansion packs. He didn't like COD a lot, or BFBC series.. preferring these type of historic medieval strategy games. I had bought him Crysis when it was released, finished it in 4 days.. Now I'm totally not into this type of genre that's why I'm asking for help here. I was decided on Civilization V thinking it was similar, but I've just phoned my dad who told me that my brother hadn't liked Civilization IV either (I've never played Civilization either) Which games would you suggest which are very similar in genre to Rome Total War and Medieval Total War? Thanks.
