Whoever is saying TB is superior to RTwP is just trying to pass their opinion as an objective truth. All the "bad" RTwP games listed had good combat, and only times I would say there were issues was when they tried to move closer to TB. Also I'm fairly certain that if Larian wanted they could make really solid RTwP experience. But I guess in their eyes it's a risk, and they'd rather reinforce the impression that they became one trick studio. Can they really not make a non TB game that's good?
