Rogue Planet or Battle for Wesnoth?

Both of these games have pretty similar gameplay... and I've heard RP has better graphics, while BfW is longer. Which one should I get?

Matter of opinion.

Rogue Planet:
-better graphics and lots of eye candy
-more realistic
-has a compelling, interesting storyline
-150+ hours of gameplay
-smoother and much better frame rate
-Bluetooth, Local Wi-Fi, and online Wi-Fi multiplayer

Battle for Wesnoth:
-passable graphics
-many different types attacks and spells
-fantasy themed storyline
-300+ hours of gameplay
-possible slow frame rate and animations
-cross platform multiplayer (you can play against people on your iPhone or iPod Touch that are playing Battle for Wesnoth on their PCs and Macs)

I'm not voting, since they're both great games.

I agree with Kunning, but I voted Rogue Planset because I'm playing it more. I bought BfW and played for a bit... then went back to Rogue Planet...

Games I have beta tested: Minigore, Cogs, Guerilla Bob, Above and Beyond: Air Combat, Baseball Superstars 2010, 33rd Division, Cash Machine, 5 star General, Flick Football... Possibly some other ones I;ve forgotten

Get both. Play through Rogue Planet in a few days then go back to Wesnoth for the next year or so!

Seriously though, which is better? Chess or checkers? Apple or Orange? Advance Wars or Fire Emblem? It's a matter of personal taste. Both RP and Wesnoth are awesome games, go beg your parents for $5 if you're poor

No, that was a mistake. Rogue Planet does not have online multiplayer, just local LAN type multiplayer. Online multiplayer is promised in a future update.

that's cool
i'm not much into this kind of game
i just want to play something different to me
i prefer better graphics and good storyline
so without considering the hours of gameplay, what would you recommend?
