Play Warcraft 3. It's a bit old now but it's a great game and never gets old online.

Netstorm is a great RTS game, and while it's not exactly new it is unique and fun. Best of all the full version is free, due to activision abandoning it when they no longer wanted to run the server, which has since been run by some fans.

Ever heard of XIII Century: Death or Glory? I haven't played it yet (ended up reinstalling Baldur's Gate 2), picked it up while looking for a strategy game myself. It's strictly a tactical strategy game, no resource management or politics. The games rooted in historical accuracy and pays huge attention to details.

Heroes of might and magic 3... my all time favorite game. Don't let the graphic turn you off, it is awesome and super addicting. There is a new heroes out too if you would be interested. It has better graphics but I think 3DO tried too hard to make and better and just sort of cluttered things. Thats my opinion though.

I hear you on this one...... I like a deep game, but not one that is going to go for too many hours or one that requires too much attention to money....

Never tried it, but I will have to do some research on this.

Free is good....... and if the strategy is good even better.

Yeah, I dunno, but it looks nice for the battles at least... hopefully the actual battles are pretty strategic on how you decide to use your units and you can point up armies.


+ rep for all....

I am getting both

I am tired of the old DOW, but am curious to see how the new one does... looks like a cross between Starcraft and Company of Heroes in terms of gameplay.

As for when Starcraft 2 is coming.... when it is done.... lol... good ole Blizzard
