OK, after beating the old classic Starcraft and Earth 2160 too many times, it's time to upgrade my lowly video card and see what is new out there.

Can anyone recommend me a good RTS game, or a good game similar to Diablo 2 (something newer, obviously since that is such an old game but a good classic)

Company of Heroes, Any Command and Conquer other than generals, Any Diablo game, and neverwinter nights one or two is worth trying. I have them all and theyre great.

Well it was just a list to choose from, with pix and user reviews, and other stuff as well. Plus, it's just a list of games you can choose from and research on yourself depending on what you're more interested in, based on your own preferences

Company of heroes, I've heard of this game but didn't know it is a RTS. I kinda liked C&C Generals, but I didn't like Neverwinter Nights, I hate reading those long storylines.

Battle for Middle Earth, Battle for Middle Earth 2, Black and White 2, SpellForce and SpellForce 2 are great. I'm not the biggest RTS player though and these games have a definite RPG influence, they aren't strictly RTS.

Face it - Rep and Post Count are overrated, quite close to useless thumb.gif

Company of Heroes

I still say Starcraft is the BEST RTS of all time ever.

Well once World in Conflict comes out and you get a DX10 GPU, I would say that looks like a pretty sick game.... As long as it's gameplay matched it's graphical detail, I'd say it's gonna be quite spectacular

I'm gonna have to check out Company Of Heroes. When I get a new video card, that is!! I definitely love Starcraft, though. They need to make another one.
