I want a difficult rts game
i played supreme commander and loved it because of how complex it is and i still play it. i just want to know if there is a complicated game like supreme commander out there???
I know it's not an RTS. but if your into strategy and complexity of gameplay. Give the Civilization Series a go. It is turnbased, but terribly addictive and fun.
You can pick up CiV III on Steam for £2.99, which is my personal favourite. CiV 4 is on steam for £12.99, or £24.99 with the expansions. Both fantastic games IMO.
I liked playing Company of Heroes online. WWII themed, a lot of the game isn't just building/sending troops to attack *like in Sup-Com*.
Infantry units need to be placed stratigally to win (your units take less damage if they are by a wall for cover, or your units do more damage if you send some to attack at the flank or rear of your enemys.)
Armor units have weak spots, so moving tanks to attack is an art, not just point click and forget. You gotta be able to adapt to different units and scenarios quickly to survive.
Much better RTS engine than Star-craft / Supreme command simplistic junk with just mass troops smashing into each other and knowing what/when to build the fastest to win.
Company of Heroes also has good DX10 graphics, i'd give it a try if I were you. Online play is pretty fun. Single player on max AI can give veteran RTS players a hard time until you learn how to play.
Oh, and different commander options is fun. As americans you pick to specialise as Infantry, Armor, or Airborne Paratrooper specialties. Lots of fun, and few different ways to play to fit your style.
I'm not HUGE into RTS, but Company of Heroes I found to be very fun. *I hate Starcraft-type RTS......*
Let me refrase that, I dislike all the garbage that Blizzard puts out.
Think the last game they put out that was worth anything was Diablo 1, and even then it wasn't that impressive imo.
strangestranger said:Nothing compares to supreme commander.
However, what rts games have you played? From what I hear sup com 2 is nothing like the original and I did not like the demo.
yeah i tryed sup com 2 it was terrible i could figure out how to go up the tech tree and really i couldnt be bothered finding out not playing it again in a hurry just stick with sup com 1 i thinkl
Agree with Strangestranger, Sup Com as the best. It is rare to get that ammount of detail and micro-management in the new RTS'.
If you are looking for something different, I would try either the Civilisation games as reccomended or the Total War series. Turn based games make for interesting and tactical playing.
Alternatively, try something completely different and online. Eve Online is a great game that involves a massive ammont of strategy, but it is an MMORPG.
