995th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC/Xbox 360 Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Gas Powered Games Publisher: THQ/Aspyr/505 Games Ever close to the end, today we’re closing the door on the RTS genre. While with a lot of other genres it wasn’t necessarily as special, I do count the RTS genre as one of […]

988th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 2006 Developer: Relic Entertainment Publisher: THQ While we’re not done with RTS games yet, we have reached one other landmark: Company of Heroes is the final WWII game I’m playing for the list. I know that’s not a major step, but as I’ve discussed […]

982nd played so far Genre: Action/Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 2000 Developer: Shiny Entertainment Publisher: Interplay Entertainment/MacPlay My mind has always mixed Sacrifice with Sacred, an isometric RPG also set in a fantasy world. What it actually is, is another strategy game where you’re in the action, like with Battalion Wars and Herzog Zwei, […]

976th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC/Playstation 1 Year of Release: 1996 Developer: Bullfrog Productions Publisher: Electronic Arts For my final Bullfrog game – I’d forgotten I had one left – we return to the cyberpunk setting of Syndicate with Syndicate Wars, a sequel that leaps ahead to an even more corporate focused era. […]

967th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2004 Developer: Nintendo EAD Publisher: Nintendo While I enjoyed playing Pikmin, it was a flawed classic: The controls weren’t great and the time limit was one that made me quite nervous. I was hoping that a sequel would improve on that and although I […]

#628 Battalion Wars

963rd played so far Genre: Action/Strategy Platform: Gamecube Year of Release: 2005 Developer: Kuju Entertainment Publisher: Nintendo For some reason I thought Battalion Wars was a prequel to Advance Wars: the big game version of it before it was adapted for the handheld. I was wrong – not only did this come later, it changed […]

954th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: PC Year of Release: 2001 Developer: Pyro Studios Publisher: Eidos Interactive As I’ve mentioned a few times before, I’ve covered all the games for this blog that I’ve played in the past. That does, however, leave a game like today’s Commandos 2, where I played the original game […]

#171 Herzog Zwei

942nd played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Mega Drive Year of Release: 1989 Developer: Technosoft Publisher: Technosoft/Sega Strategy games that predate Dune II and others that created the RTS genre are always odd. When you get something turn based you can easily go back to the likes of Archon, while something like Power Monger has […]

940th played so far Genre: Role-Playing/Strategy Platform: DS Year of Release: 2007 Developer: Square Enix Publisher: Square Enix It’s time to start mopping up some franchises that had several entries still left – and with the immense series that’s Final Fantasy I need to tackle entry eleven out of twelve (and yes, I’m leaving a […]

929th played so far Genre: Strategy Platform: Wii Year of Release: 2009 Developer: Ronimo Games Publisher: Ronimo Games Did you know that the only physical release of Swords & Soldiers seems to have been the German version? It’s the only one I could find, at least, which worried me a bit at first. It was […]
