Age of Empires III: The Asian Dynasties

With the second expansion called The Asian Dynasties, Age of Empires III gets enriched with a couple of new tribes, new technologies and also the return of glory past away. For the first time developer Ensemble Studios passed the torch to Big Huge Games, known from Rise of Nations, expansion and semi-sequel, and together they […]


Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts

The last year the RTS landscape was dominated by Supreme Commander and Company of Heroes and both didn’t have to wait long for an expansion. COH is the first one with Opposing Fronts, a stand-alone expansion pack that lets you play with the British and Panzer Elite troops. With the latter you need to try […]


The Settlers VI: Rise of an Empire

The preview version contained some bugs and other annoying elements. The game has been improved after that, but is it enough? You are king (or queen) of a thriving kingdom, but Viking attacks disturb the peace. They are being incited by the ‘Red Prince’ and his minions. There is nothing left to do but send […]


Worms: Open Warfare 2

If we can trust the ever-correct Wikipedia, the Worms series is already at part 12. After a couple of failed 3D experiments the heavily armed worms, like in Open Warfare 1, go back to good old 2D gameplay. And good for that! They’ve once cost me almost a year, those crazy worms with high voices. […]


Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars

Tiberium is back, Kane is back, and yes, Command & Conquer is back! With Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars we don’t only get back the stuff mentioned previously but we even get a cast including several members of Lost and Battlestar Galactica and of course Michael Ironside as the general leading the GDI troops. […]


Sword of the Stars

Space travelling, alien planets’ colonisation and more is a popular subject for many stories, movies and games. Sword of the Stars too takes place in space and brings us back to the old days of the genre: oldskool gameplay updated. Behind this game there’s also a whole story about how humanity explored the universe and […]


Age of Empires: The Age of Kings

On PC we’ve known the Age of Empires series already for centuries: a series of RTS games that managed to impress quite a lot some time ago. Surprisingly now the DS gets its own episode, but luckily the makers decided to take on an original approach and completely redesigned the game. The gameplay looks more […]


Medieval II: Total War

The combination of great RTS battles and a turn-based map as well as the many possibilities that bring fun for a very long time, are what makes the Total War series so good. Medieval II doesn’t change that. You can choose between campaign, historical battle, quick battle and custom battle. The two latter ones imply […]


Warhammer: Mark of Chaos

After the success of the Warhammer 40.000: Dawn of War games, it’s back to fantasy again with the normal Warhammer universe to see a new real-time strategy game (RTS) based on a Games Workshop IP. Mark of Chaos is a non-basebuilding RTS though, meaning you have much more focus on your troops. Developer Black Hole […]


Anno 1701


Before you dive into this review, I would like to note that this was my first experience with Anno so forgive me if I can’t compare with previous editions. I’ll do my best, though, to give a good idea of the games’ possibilities. Anno 1701 can be seen as a real-time strategy game where the […]



Paraworld stood also on the list of interesting RTS games this year. I myself was very curious too of this world full of dinos, but unfortunately the end result is disappointing. Paraworld is a parallel world next to ours, where dinosaurs haven’t been extinct and now they live more less peaceful next to human kind. […]


Sid Meier's Railroads!

Sid Meier’s Railroads! is in principle a remake of the 1990 game Railroad Tycoon. I know, you need to be of a certain age already to have played that game then, but at the time, Tycoon games were “in”. The idea? Simple, build your own railroad imperium and supply as many cities as possible with […]


Company of Heroes

I admit it: the RTS has been disappointing me for some time already as genre. The constantly “discovering” the same structure, concept, stupid stories and identical gameplay in yet again a game based on World War 2 could interest me like the 12th re-run of Married with Children. But just like with TV series, now […]


Age of Empires III: The Warchiefs

Last year November we could have fun with Age of Empires III. Although the game became a huge success, a lot of the hardcore fans missed “something”. Lets see whether The Warchiefs, the first expansion, can fill up that place in our heart. As the title suggests, the expansion is all about the original inhabitants […]


Heroes of Annihilated Empires

GSC are the creators of the well-known Cossacks. With this Heroes of Annihilated Empires they wanted to follow the path of Heroes of Might and Magic. In the campaign you help main character Elhant, a rather obstinate elves ranger. The standard story (undead attack the kingdom of the elves, so the hero has to save […]
