Although AACW was the better bargain, I'd say FoF is still the better game, but w/AGEOD retro-engineering its "old" games, you never know what will happen to AACW w/the next patch.
Hey! you did not say why either!
OK, I made a few critques in the earlier posts of this thread, but to sum up: it's easier to form armies and get new units in FoF, which also does a better job w/its (larger scale) map than AACW. FoF's sound effects and graphics are also better, and even Quick Battle beats AGEOD's Battle Meter.
But AACW does a better job w/its smaller scenarios and seems to model officer/unit behavior better; it's also much cheaper, which is a plus if your on a budget: FoF is tres cher.
I'm going to do a more exhaustive comparison when I get a better handle on both games. For the record, I've been an AGEOD fan since BoA, which is now at v. 1.13a.
