Any good RTS games

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Are there any good Real Time Strategy games out right now? I have tried Age of Empires 3 (and previous ones) but don't really like them because they are too slow and not enough action. I have played all of the Command and Conquer series and is currently demoing C&C Generals (the only game of the series that I haven't played). What others do you guys recommend?

Edit\\\\Anyone tried Act of War yet? It looks pretty good.
Edit\\\\ Not a big fan of StarCraft games either (too fake IMO and a little old).

Im currently playing Star Wars: Empire at War. I am huge Star Wars fan and so far it has proved to be a great RTS game. Ive played AOE3 as well as C&C. Overall I think C&C has the edge, but I havent played enough of this new game to give an unbiased opinion. The campaign is pretty free form and give plenty of options unlike AOE3. It has all the Star Wars characters and some from the extended universe (e.g.Mara Jade ) Give it a try!

Nah...I'm more into a more realistic instant action kind of feel rather than ancient stuff. I like modern technology better.

Take a chance, Battle for Middle Earth will hook you. It's got action and plenty of it. I like it quite a bit better than AOE3. It's currently the best RTS out atm, IMO.

Currently there are no rumors that even point to the creation of a StarCraft 2.

But the current buzz about Blizzard, besides WoW and Ghost, is that they placed an employment wanted add asking people to work for them with a line saying "working with the team behind Diablo" So my guess is that Blizzards next new game would have to be a Diablo themed one.

w00t.

I've been playing it nonstop and EAW is one of the best RTS's I've played. Plus there are plenty of mods out there if you're a Star Wars fan or just want more stuff.

War of the Ring is an okay game, but it's optimized bad, 'cause I played it on my rig below and still got lag even though the game came out like 2 years ago.

Other than that, Warhammer 40K was pretty good. Can't think of many others now.

Oh, I just got AOE2 on my cell phone-it's pretty cool if you're pretty bored.
