The Best Tactical Strategy Games for 2018

We wanted to celebrate the genre by selecting the best strategy role playing games. They could have been more, as I said at the beginning, but there is no doubt on the quality that treasure all that on this list. If you dare to get close to any of them, the hours of fun are insured. Here we go:

Age of Epires II: The Age of Kings

Age of Empires II is a great game Lord where there, clear. In addition to campaigns dedicated to historical figures such as William Wallace, Joan of arc and Genghis Khan, the title offers 13 different civilizations with their own units, specialties and bonuses. A well of hours ideal for fans of the middle ages. And for the rest also.

  • Year of release: 1999
  • Development Studio: Ensemble Studios
  • Company: Microsoft Games

Atom Zombie Smasher

Neither in strategy games can get rid of the zombies, hear. But is that ‘ Atom Zombie Smasher’ deserves to be on this list despite being a rather tiny title, especially if we compare it with the heavyweights that form this list. Your goal here is to save civilians from different parts of Nuevos Aires, a fictional town infected with zombies up above.

  • Year of release: 2011
  • Development Studio: Blendo Games
  • Company: Blendo Games

Black & White

Surely many you recall to Peter Molyneux by their eccentricities for years, but eh, this man has designed games such as the footballer ‘Black & White’. A title where the player is basically a God responsible for that everything works properly on an island populated by various tribes. And Yes, that includes work miracles.

  • Year of release: 2001
  • Development Studio: Lionhead Studios
  • Company: EA

Civilization II

Almost five years passed between the release of the first Sid Meier ‘Civilization’ until the arrival of ‘ Civilization II’, but the result we can calmly say that was worth the wait. We are talking about mid-90’s and a saga that live still today, almost 30 years later, but we are left with this second installment. The biggest change was at eye level, adopting an isometric perspective rather than the overhead of the original here, but also innovations were introduced in units, AI and much more. A gem.

  • Year of release: 1996
  • Development Studio: MicroProse
  • Company: MicroProse

Command & Conquer

‘Command & Conquer’ is one of those games that never miss on a list of this type dedicated to the strategy. The work of Westwood Studios we moved to an alternate timeline where a meteorite crashed in Italy in the mid-90s, leaving to escape a toxic substance called Tiberium. From there we have two factions encountered by the interest in the Tiberium, which gives rise to the two playable campaigns. And come, to manage resources and charging base enemy has said.

  • Year of release: 1995
  • Development Studio: Westwood Studios
  • Compañía: Virgin Interactive Entertainment

Company of Heroes

Another that is undoubtedly one of the best strategy games in real time is ‘ Company of Heroes’. It is set during the second world war, offers two playable factions and Yes, leadeth us squarely in the battle of Normandy.

  • Year of release: 2006
  • Development Studio: Relic Entertainment
  • Company: THQ

Crusader Kings II

‘ Crusader Kings II’ is another of those games designed for those who enjoy stories set in the middle ages. In this case the player will have the opportunity to control a dynasty along about 400 years, specifically the year 1066 to the 1453, and even more go back still in time through some of their DLC. Grand strategy of high-flying.

  • Year of release: 2012
  • Development Studio: Paradox Development Studio
  • Company: Paradox Interactive

Dungeon Keeper

And another designed by Peter Molyneux, Yes to jueguico. In this case, developed by Bullfrog Productions, the Studio that he founded along with Les Edgar in 1987 and that eight years later would end up buying EA. ‘ Dungeon Keeper’ offers real time strategy and, as its name suggests, the player must create and manage your own Dungeon.

  • Year of release: 1997
  • Development Studio: Bullfrog Productions
  • Company: EA

Europe Universalis IV

Another saga that has spent years making war on the grounds of the grand strategy is ‘ Europa Universalis’ Paradox, no doubt. In this case we are left with ‘ Europe Universalis IV’ because we believe that it is the most complete, a game where you are going to gain control of a nation over hundreds of years (mid-15th century until the beginning of the 19th). Trade, diplomacy, colonization, wars, and resource management. Not missing anything.

  • Year of release: 2013
  • Development Studio: Paradox Development Studio
  • Company: Paradox Interactive

Panzer General II

If we talk about strategy shift, ‘Panzer General II’ is one of the titles that you want to highlight. With a map of hexagonal boxes, the game took us by various scenarios during the second world war, each of them representing a specific battle.

  • Year of release: 1997
  • Development Studio: Strategic Simulations, Inc.
  • Company: Strategic Simulations, Inc.

Prison Architect

‘ Prison Architect’ is one of the most recent titles that appear on this list. It also touches the strategy genre in a way somewhat different from the rest, with a focus more on the simulator of construction and management of resources (in this case of a prison enclosure), but it wants it or not still a good candidate for being here.

  • Year of release: 2015
  • Development Studio: Introversion Software
  • Company: Introversion Software

StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty

Blizzard tends to convert everything he touches into gold, I think that that does not escape him no one, and within the real-time strategy would be nothing short of a crime to miss a game like ‘ Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty’. Account with a number of missions, many of them with unique characteristics, requiring the player to approach them differently: enemies that attack only at night, land that is flooded with lava, time, etc.

  • Year of release: 2010
  • Development Studio: Blizzard Entertainment
  • Company: Blizzard Entertainment

Theme Hospital

Peter Molyneux was not involved directly in the development of ‘ Theme Hospital’ because pretty had at the time with his work in ‘Dungeon Keeper’, but with James Leach suggested the idea of making a new Theme based on an Hospital. ‘Theme Park’, launched in 1994, had a very good welcome, so why not can continue milking the cow?

  • Year of release: 1997
  • Development Studio: Bullfrog Productions
  • Company: EA

World in Conflict

Before you leap to stardom with ‘ The Division’, put some salt on the issue, Massive Entertainment launched in 2007 a game is called real-time strategy ‘ World in Conflict’ that it left them very well and liked. The ultimate test is that it appears in this list, clear. Its premise is very cool also: in an alternate 1989 the Soviet Union invades Western Europe and causes the third world war.

  • Year of release: 2007
  • Development Studio: Massive Entertainment
  • Company: Vivendi Games / Ubisoft

Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos

What I said about Blizzard a little higher? Nearly a decade before launching ‘ Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty’, the company was already the second sequel of ‘ Warcraft: Orcs & Humans’ with this ‘ Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos’, an RTS with new units, four distinct races, five bells, magic multiplayer… A marvel.

  • Year of release: 2002
  • Development Studio: Blizzard Entertainment
  • Company: Blizzard Entertainment

XCOM: Enemy Unknown

‘ XCOM: Enemy Unknown’ is very different from the vast majority of games from this list. It is a game of turn-based strategy very tactical and a graphic section of the more attractive. In addition, if the goal is to repel an alien invasion at a global level, we are inside. A marvel.

  • Year of release: 2012
  • Development Studio: Firaxis Games
  • Company: 2 K Games
