Recommend me one of those SC/AoE type games

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I forgot what that genre is called . I haven't played one of those games in a very long time. The only game in this genre I ever played was AoE 2 and that was in the 4th grade.

What is a good game in this genre to start playing? Is the SC series any good?

You mean RTS?

None better than SC2 right now. (and I like to think never will be )

RTS, that's it. Just forgot the name. Where is the cheapest I can find SC2?

Starcraft 2 is still rather expensive here in UK... going for £40-£50...

Can recommend the Dawn of War series as well ^_^ That or Command and Conquer series ^_^ **Just giving you options ^_^*

i still vote for Starcraft 2 though

i suggest the dawn of war series.

It features both your traditional RTS style, but also takes RPG elements of leveling and loot also.

Dawn of war 2 is also the best RTS game available when it comes to graphics and audio. Nothing else comes close, as most games have ranged or melee units, all units in the game but tanks feature ranged and melee attacks and ranged will swap to melee when engaged, which also changes their attack.

Sometimes its tactically sound to engage a range squad with another ranged squad just keep it from dealing lots of damage.

The newest release for dawn of war 2 is available for only $30 and features 6 races and they all play different from each other.

Anything from the Total War series, Civilization (specifically Civ 5, the newest one), Warhammer 40K if you're into that sort of thing, Dawn of War, Company of Heroes, World in Conflict.. there's loads.
