StarCraft is one of the most legendary strategy video game sagas. The latest installment is StarCraft II, which was released in 2010, and which is still one of the great references of the genre to this day. This installment offers us an approach based on 3 rival races , which will have to face each other to gain control of the territory.
As in all strategy games, the player's mission will be to get resources to expand the base and create new units, all with the aim of ending the enemy's army. It has a story mode for each of the three races, as well as a competitive online mode.
Warcraft is another of Blizzard's classic sagas that has millions of followers around the world . Warcraft III was a very pioneering game at the time, as it was the first strategy title, which implemented graphics with a three-dimensional style.
The game offers you several races, as well as a playable campaign for each of them. During the game, you will find only a few heroes, who evolve as they gain experience in combat. It is an element more typical of RPG games that makes Warcraft 3 continue to be one of the best games of the genre.
Civilization VI is based on a very different concept from Blizzard's Starcraft saga. In this case we find a turn-based strategy video game .
The objective of this video game is to collect resources to create new cities , and to continue expanding our empire throughout the territory of the map. Of course you will have to face countless enemies, who will cross your path, although you can also choose diplomatic channels, to avoid conflict.
Company of Heroes 2
Company of Heroes 2 is a real-time strategy video game, which is set in World War II , and was released in 2013.
The best thing about this game is that everything is recreated in the most realistic way possible , from the battlefields to the units. The physics system of the game is also very realistic, so if one of the projectiles falls on the ground, a crater will be created.
The Banner Saga
The Banner Saga is a trilogy of strategy video games set in Norse mythology . The gameplay is based on a turn-based combat system, so it will delight fans of this type of game.
The game map has a board layout , which means that it is organized into a series of cells that you will have to conquer through fighting. Of course, the strategy will also be essential to make the right decisions.
Warhammer 40,000 Dawn of War III
Warhammer 40,000 Dawn of War III was released in 2017, and represents the culmination of one of the most iconic sagas in the strategy genre. Unfortunately, the sales of this title have been quite lower than what SEGA expected, so it is very likely that we will not see a new installment.
But low sales do not mean it is a bad game, far from it. This is a very entertaining game, and with a huge level of quality, in which you will have to perform tasks as diverse as construction of bases, management of resources, creation of new units , and of course organize your army to face the rivals.
Total War Warhammer II
Warhammer goes way beyond Dawn of War. In these cases, it is a video game franchise with a quite different approach, since in this case it is not about managing bases and heroes in real time, but instead focuses on diplomacy and pure face-to-face combat .
In this installment we will have to manage an army with hundreds of units , to try to continue advancing on the game map. All units are different from each other, and have their own characteristics, so you will have to learn to manage them, in order to get the most out of your army. A great game that will give you hundreds of hours of fun.
