I'm sorry but I have to go with Rome Total War. You can't get a better game in the genre at the moment.

But in this game i understand from the other versions that its not really a resource gather type game like say.. Warcraft, C&C, Age of Empires or Dawn of war..
I really liked Medieval had alot of game play out of thast especially against people.. Go the mounted charge.. but yeah the question still stands for those Rome fans..
Whats you favorite resource gathering, build that mad 'your not gunna get in' base RTS ??
I completely forgot about that series. That were a few amazing games.Worlds Collide said:Homeworld takes the #1 spot for me, but that is just because I am in love with space based sci fi.
lLonginus said:The_Giant_Mantis, since you're into squad-based games, I strongly recommend Star Wars: Republic Commando. Follows the standard FPS routine, but you have three squadmates that you can assign tasks and tactics. Tell Sev to go stab a battle droid while your buddies man some turrets, and you go strafing and stabbing droids in the face. I loved that stab feature... but yeah, the game, while nothing too special, merged the FPS and RTS genres quite well, and while it wasn't as "allmighty" as Halo, I enjoyed it quite a lot.
Yes, I have seen it, and thought about playing it. The trouble is, I have bad memories or repeatedly ****ing up at Hidden and Dangerous (I was only about 15!) Somehow I just couldn't get the fact that the strategy elements needed to be combined with the FPS action elements, got very confused, and screwed up badly.lLonginus said:The_Giant_Mantis, since you're into squad-based games, I strongly recommend Star Wars: Republic Commando.
