4.99 sales worth it

so settlers and ravensword went on sale for 4.99 and i was wondering if either were worth it, so i already have red conquest and warfare inc for rts do you think those are better than settlers. and i already have inotia 2 but i realize that ravensword isn't a full fledged rpg because of the customization which is what i like. so what i am asking is either of those worth it with the games i already have

Ravensword isn't worth it. It's practically a beta game where 99.99% of the world map is completely empty. And it's not even an RPG. Maybe it's some really dumbed-down version of a Zelda-style adventure game, dunno.
I can't say about Settlers since I don't have it. But if you really have to choose one between those two go with Settlers by process of elimination. Oo

Settlers is awesome, the one drawback is the lack of a free play/skirmish mode but aside from that (and especially if you enjoy Settlers games already) it's worth buying.

*sigh*

Here we go again. Ravensword is amazing, worth the original and sale price, IMO. It is NOT an RPG, and doesn't claim to be. It sounds like the OP knows this, and is interested in what it IS rather than what some people WANT IT TO BE. If you've ever played Oblivion, or Fallout 3, and just had a blast exploring the land, then Ravensword fits that bill and also fits right in your pocket. It's got tons of stuff to explore, humorous dialogue and interactions with people, and beautiful graphics. That's worth the $5 right there. There's not really anything like it on the store currently, so if you're interested you should go for it.

It's appalling that someone would suggest a game that they don't even own over Ravensword just because they would rather the game be something that it's not.

yeah as he said the only thing i'm really worried about it is the amount of items/customization and i've heard that there is really not alot of monsters at all like 2-3 per place

There's a good amount of monsters imo. Maybe there could be a few more but I think it has a good balance as is.

There are a few magical items and probably 5-7 melee weapons plus a bow with 2 kinds of arrows. There isn't a lot of variety in the armor, just leather and steel, but your characters appearance does change with what you equip. Stats are leveled up automatically and there are 2 monsters in the game that are much more difficult and high-level than the end game boss.

Get Ravensword, at this price is a great deal. The Settlers is really hard, so I dont recommend it unless you are a fan of RTS games. I would pick Ravensword.

Just because I don't have it doesn't mean I don't know what it is.
I'd rather play a proper strategy game for $4.99. Sure I see some people love walking-around games where you do next to nothing, but I'm sure there are also other people who actually wants to see lots of action, whether in graphics or in the mind. I guess you fall in the first category, and I fall in the second. As to which category the OP falls in how was I supposed to know? Your opinion is not more valid than mine, and neither is mine over yours. Oo
