Cheers Strategy Games
Five games that challenge your tactics





Any list of the greatest strategy games on the PC has to include the insanely addictive Civilization series and 2005's Civilization IV is easily the best version ever. Instead of focusing on the quantitative additions of previous sequels, Civ IV was a reinvention of the core ideas and concepts behind the game. Players start in 4000 BC with a single settler. From there they must explore the world around them, expand their empire, exploit resources and exterminate their rivals as they advance their civilization into the future. It's a huge concept and the sequel really delivers all the drama and details you'd expect. This time around though, the interface is much more streamlined and clear, combat is livelier, and culture really matters in important and intuitive ways. Best of all, the game finally includes a workable multiplayer mode that's as easy and inviting as any we've seen in a game of this scale.






After revolutionizing the sci-fi RTS genre with Homeworld and Dawn of War, Relic turned its attention to the predictable and cliched World War 2 setting with Company of Heroes. The result was one of the freshest and most original RTS games in recent memory. The inclusion of resources points and territories made front lines more significant and more fluid, while the sheer variety of vehicles and infantry types and upgrades gave players a chance to customize their own armies to suit their own playing styles. Destructible environments add even more strategic elements, and an added visual treat. Historically-themed missions in the campaign introduce players to the complex strategies and tactics needed to compete in the game's thrilling multiplayer modes. There's a bit of micromanagement required here, but the tradeoff in terms of added mobility and freedom makes it worth sweating the details a bit more.






What Civilization IV did for the historical 4X game, Galactic Civilizations II did for the space empire games. The team at Stardock had already resurrected the genre with the original Galactic Empires, but the sequel took things to the next level with more polish and sophistication. Loads of new options were introduced as well including a brand new scripted campaign and open-ended games that you could play as the alien races. Toss in lots of planetary improvement options, tech trees, smart diplomacy, a custom ship builder, and AI opponents that provide a flexible and reliable challenge and you've got a game that can stand next to the other top performers in this genre. Like Civilization IV, Galactic Civilizations II was enhanced with a number of incredible expansions that enlarged the core experience. There's not much more you can ask for.






Oh, my! Creative Assembly's Total War series is another perennial favorite around the IGN offices. The very first game, Shogun, was responsible for many skipped lunches and late nights. Medieval upped the ante with a few new features but it was Rome that really brought the Total War series to its fullest potential. Recreating the battles of the ancient world with as much tactical sophistication and cinematic action as we'd ever seen, the game instantly won a large following among strategy gamers. No other game that came before it rendered battles with as much believability and excitement. That it was married to an equally compelling grand strategy game full of political maneuvering and long-term logistical planning made it one of the most playable and enjoyable historical strategy games in the entire PC catalog. Later games would improve on the visuals and features but for us, Rome was were it all started to come together.






People had sort of assumed that you couldn't do a high level 4X game that ran in real time and included tactical battles. And then Stardock and Ironclad Games showed us just how to do it. Sins of a Solar Empire perfectly balanced the scale, details and speed of each game style, mixing the best parts of Galactic Civilizations and Homeworld without losing any of the core strengths of either game. The real success is in both the strength of the overall interface and the empire tree. Three separate races add a lot of variety, even if there's not much of a story and very few features that don't relate specifically to waging war. Solid multiplayer architecture and highly detailed, stylish graphics make the game even more appealing to the strategy faithful. As with the other games on this list, the inevitable expansions added more reasons to love the game, but the original release is still a classic in its own right.


hope you enjoy it .
