RTS Genre: looking for advise

#1VashelPosted 9/11/2011 9:51:33 AM
I finally decided to finish my backlog, now I'm at the point when I'm running out of options and I have 3 RTS' that I haven't finish(360:Halo Wars and LOTR:BFME2, PC Dawn of War 2). I've never managed to finish an RTS before because I always stop at the point where things star to get hard in each game, in other words I suck at this genre. I really find this games fun so I was wondering if anyone has any basic tips so I can get any better and finish these games.

The only RTS games I enjoyed since the first (way back when) is the Command & Conquer games. The units, gameplay, graphics, and goofy live action bits keep you pushing on. These Halo and Lord of the Rings things I know nothing about. Pick up Red Alert 3 or something.

Go for Halo Wars.. it'll keep you interested in the story.. because there actually is a story. As much as I like Command and Conquer and Red Alert.. the storys have always been basically nonexistant. With Halo wars.. you have a story, and if you ever get stuck just go for a walkthrough or something like that.. the missions are pretty short so that will work for you
If you want peace, prepare for war!

if you don't mind cheating, you can do these(LOTR doesn't have any besides unlocking hereos):

Dawn of War(if it's the Warhammer game): enter the console(by default Control-Shift-Tilde)
then press cheat_power( n ) for "Give yourself "n" units of power"

Halo wars: find skulls 10-17(except maybe #12, since it makes NPC units explode or something) a guide for all 17 is here:

Drop those three games and get Brutal Legend.

A good Real Time Shooter is CoD; multiplayer is perfect.
CoD 4 - 5/10. CoDW@W - 9/10. MW2 - 2/10. Blops - 7/10

I advise you to use the correct form of the word advice.

Upgrade your PC and get StarCraft II. Enough said.

if he can run DoW 2, he can run SC2.

i would download and play the demo R.U.S.E, imo its the best rts game on the 360 at this time.
all 360 games should have a demo. lets put revieweres out of business.
