2nd Tour is much older. Total War gives you the same end results for shooting, melee, morale etc. with much, much more streamlined game mechanics. Gamers have changed in that they want quicker game play, so we've smoothed the game mechinacs. Total War also includes Tunnel cards, Battle Boards for quicker games and much better counters. Hope this helps Kent.
