Recommendation:Turn-Based Strategy

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey, so I just played Company of Heroes 2 and its great. However, I am not really an RTS guy ( I suck at multitasking) and I prefer turn based games like Civ 5. Any recommendations? I'm looking for something a bit modern (2010+?)

Currently, XCom has me intrigued, but I was looking for something on a grander scale. I was hoping for essentially a turn-based Company of heroes.

Also, anything interesting being released in the near future?

Thanks in advance.

The only RTS I know that's coming out soon, I'm a big Total War fanboy, I've been in love with their games since the original Rome.

I have seen those games on metacritic and none of them seem to be to my tastes, except maybe jagged alliance 2.

As for scrolls I will be purchasing that later this weekend, it looks great. I will look up endless space as well. I've been looking up games similar to civil 5, but there doesn't seem to be that many, except maybe age of wonders I think it was called.after playing company of heroes 2, I'm really hoping to find a slower paced (TBS) version style of it essentially.

Endless Space is pretty close to Civ 5, but obviously on a galactic scale with planets and such instead of cities, good fun imo. I honestly haven't seen many WW2 age TBS games, and it's a shame really.

Don't see a lot of good turn base strategy games, but I like Total War: Shogun 2.
