right now i'm revisting an old favorite of mine...Empire Earth 2

its been some years since i played it...and i had to get some unoffical patch for widescreen...but its been great...a very much an underated game IMO

(side note DO NOT THINK ABOUT Empire Earth 3...its a dumbed down mess of a game)

edit: EVEN gamespot thinks it was extremely dumbed down http://www.gamespot.com/reviews/empire-earth-iii-review/1900-6183060/

How good is Tropico 1 & 2?


Not really strategy games. Those are city builders

IMO they are not even really city builders either lol

Total War Empire or Shogun II.
Anno 2070. (City builder / strategy).
Simcity 4. (City builder / strategy).
Company of Heroes + 2.

All of these are great games and worth looking into.

All of the Total War games are great, I prefer Medieval 2.
Crusader Kings 2 is the best strategy game ever made
Warlock and warlock 2
Europa Universalis 4
Age of Empires 2
Age of Wonders 3
Age of Mythology: Extended Edition
Fallen Enchantress Legendary Heroes is severely underrated
Company of Heroes 2 is great
Warcraft 1-3
Starcraft 1 and 2
Galactic Civilization 2
Command and Conquer Red Alert 1-3
Wargame (All 3 are good)
Xcom EU and EQ (Tactical game with a bit of strategy involved in between battles)
Xcom (The entire series) Better than the EU reboot, but ancient.

I would say they are. They're similar to the old Zeus/Poseidon city builders

I am curious, how is Age of Mythology extended? got the original one but never really played it as I suck at RTS.

Also curious if Wargame still has that multiplayer focus? Red dragon looks tempting.
