Tom clancy's Endwar...

game was great yet sooooo underrated. if your lucky u might be able to find it online w/ a wireless headset for less than 30 probably even less than 20. the online is dead i think but stratigy game wise this is by far every fan needs.

too bad about halo wars. besides the theme, it's actually a well implemented rts on consoles.

I hate Halo too but Halo Wars is easily the best RTS on any console IMO...I played Endwar and it was OK but the fact that you can not control your army and point and click them where you want them to go is a big issue, you can only point to which enemy you want them to attach and that is it.

Well since you said strategy game, maybe try Portal 2.

He clearly posted "real time strategy" and Portal 2 is a puzzle game.

I 2nd this

EndWar is the most action packed rts I've ever played, and the voice recognition is spot on, and adds to the intensity...

I'm gonna have to pull that one out of the ole book when I get home

Strategy is an entire genre that usually involves micromanagement of resources, assets, and in a lot of cases some kind of fighting force. There are all kinds of distinctions within the genre, real time simply means the action takes place in "real" time as opposed to turn based. A famous RTS would be Starcraft. For a TBS a good example would be Heroes of Might and Magic (3 is my all-time favorite).

Oh, but you can tell by my signature that I'm used to playing my type of strategy games, like Dragon Age, Fallout, and Elder Scrolls. But I think I understand, I played the hell out of Final Fantasy Tactics.
