    I play Age of Mythology, Rise of Nations and very occasionally C&C Generals (although Im crap at it). Used to play Age of Empires a few years ago, so Im trying to get back in the habit of RTS games :)

    hmm... lemme see... I have played or dabbled with things like...
    Warhammer: Dark Omen
    Age of Empires + AoE:Rise of Rome
    Age of EmpiresII + AoEII:Conquerers Expansion
    Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun + Firestorm
    Tzar
    Conquest:Frontier Wars
    Settlers3 (does that count ;) )
    What about Caesar3?
    Army Men RTS :(
    Cossacks & American Conquest
    Total War series
    Homeworld

    Suppose we should include turn based in here as well, like Alpha Centauri, Age of Wonders and Kohan.

    Blimey... there are just so many more as well.

    No new one you might notice... that's cos I have more games than I can unwrap, an old PC that can't handle the new 3d ones, and am a tight bugger so always often wait for the budget release :p

    I love Civilization 3, but I find it extremely hard on any of the respectable difficulty levels, and the way it handles combat is quite poor.

    You know... I don't think I have. Not even a demo :eek:

    This is about the only kind of games I do play. Caesar 3 and Pharoh being current favourites. But I can't get the hang of combat in any of them really, so unless I can build really good defenses, I'm stuck!

    I've got Age of Empires 2, and I'm terrible :-(

    You're missing out! It even fits in all your prerequisits. :)

    Empire Earth!
    Supoib RTS that never made the big time.
    The principal thing it has going for it is excellent AI so co-op games against the machine are never easy (er, unless you set it on easy).
    The ai never gives up and it'll run 2 good players ragged on hard level.
    And it defends intelligently and attacks in like no other RTS. Tis a thing of beauty....

    EMpire Earth is indeed a thing of beauty. I didnt even know about it til a mate challenged me to it and slowly got addicted.

    So much stuff you can do, some niggling things (as well with all games) but the way the AI does often spring the odd clever surprise (flying a nuclear bomber through that one cap in your air defence) is always fun :).

    Although I'm still an AoE 2, Dungeon Keeper and Red Alert (in both cases, the ORIGINAL) player at heart :).

    Got Empire Earth when it came out but still haven't played it, other RTS games I've played are Rise of Nations, C&C Generals, C&C Generals:Zero Hour, Emperor: Battle for Dune, AOE 2, Homeworld 1 & 2.

    Age of Mythology is great, I recently got it after having played AoE and AoK for a few years...

    Not started playing online yet, but the best site is http://aom.heavengames.com/ , and you can play online through Ensemble Studios Online (see that site or within the game click multiplayer).

    Total Annihilation is probably one of my favourite RTS's, and probably the best combining full sea, air and land units creating some of the best battle scenes. And the way the screen shook with explosions.......sexy.

    When I had a PC I would play Red Alert, Tiberian Sun, Total Annihilation, Age of Empires, Warwind 2 (I still prefer the classic view, none of this 3d nonsense where amounts of units required aren't as high), Generals, AoM, Warcraft III and probably more which I can't remember. Ooh I wish they'd port Total Annihilation over.

    Sounds like you are an empire builder rather than a warmonger :)
    I sometimes like playing games that focus on the building side more that the fighting, although many prefer the fighting to be more prominent, or even lose the resource gathering thing completely.
    If you like Caesar and Pharoh then I guess the next games for you would be Zeus and Emperor. Or Tropico2:pirate Cove is a varation on the empire building idea, cos it has pirates in it ;)


    Guess I better look for it in the sales then... might find it for under a fiver and be tempted.


    When I finally get around to getting the new box I think Warcraft III is one I will be looking to try.

    You could have copied it from previous posts rather than guess and get it wrong :p


    Oh look, a free copy of Battle Realms has turned up :clap:

    Total Annihilation....yes I forgot that one, it was great.

    Total Annihilation was a great game and so was Total Annihilation: Kingdoms which was based in a fantasy setting.
    I still play Kingdoms from time to time just for some good old fun.

    Also I installed Earth 2140 again a few days ago and had some great fun with it.

    Fantasy... I like fantasy. Must look out for that as well.

    So much to play, so little time :(

    I still play Age of Empires II, it's still a fantastic game. Nothing like playing a Deathmatch on Black Forest against 3 computers all set on hard. Playing for 6 hours, gaining ground then retreating over and over again, and then cutting a line through the trees with trebuchets so you can sneak in unnoticed and create havoc while they're attacking your defenses in the opposite corner of the map. :D

    I'll never tire of it. :)

    Also, AoM, AoT and a bit of Warcraft3. And Empire Earth was massively underrated, it's a fine game.
