If so, what do you think of them?
Are both games considered very stable or do they have a history of crashing or have other known bugs?
How proactive is NWS in trying to fix known issues or is it one of those "what you see is what you get"?
Of the two RTW2 has aircraft and carriers while RTW1 does not.
RTW2 is still being worked on and is due a a major expansion which will increase the time period covered from the current 1900-1950 to 1890-1970's, with all the new technology and weapons involved. The NWS team is active in the forums, and responds quickly to questions and comments.
Both titles are very stable now with no major problems being reported.
There is a very friendly and knowledgeable user community. Plenty of mods are available for both titles.
Only playable against the AI which is pretty tactically proficient in most cases.
A demo for RTW2 (an earlier version than the current 1.25) is available. In my opinion the NWS products are better than the WDS naval titles in many ways. I recommend them highly.
