Battle for Wesnoth or Reign of Swords?

I just bought both of them and i'm wondering which one is a better pick? I might only be leaving one on my ipod. I hear Battle for Wesnoth is VERY hardcore and Reign of Swords isn't too hardcore. I think i'm gonna keep Reign of Swords though. Can they be compared? If so, which should stay on my ipod?

Start with RoS. It's only like 7mb compared to near 300mb BfW anyways.

They are very different, both are great. It depends on how much of a turn-based strategy fan you are. Battle for wesnoth is quite hardcore but it has so much gameplay it's unbelievable. I would keep BfW though both are fun games.

Battle for Wesnoth is very very fun. I prefer to play it on my computer though since it's so expansive. I never really liked Reign of Swords...it's mostly an interface thing for me. I simply don't like RoS's interface.

i have both and i say that battle of wesnoth has more quantity while reign of sword is more on quality. that meaning, the game itself isn't tat laggy and the characters look COOL! but i have to admit that battle of wesnoth has a good story and i advise you to be human only, they the best!

I cannot say that Battle for Wesnoth is the better game but it is the one I have, if that helps.
