Tired of arcade racing, shooting games, and action games? Strategies will come to the rescue and make you strain your brain! We tell you about the most fascinating representatives of the genre.
Dune: Spice Wars
Dune: Spice Wars offers us a well-known universe with a well-developed ent, the opportunity to visit Arrakis and prove their superiority to other factions, among which there was a place for Atreides, Harkonen, and Fremen. Here, you can engage in espionage and diplomacy, collect resources, conquer settlements, hire various units, improve bases, explore new technologies, and even participate in negotiations and vote on the council. In general, the authors recreated the atmosphere of the original source just fine.
Age of Wonders 4
Age of Wonders 4 continues a series of fantasy strategies about the confrontation of magical peoples, from the usual undead and humans to dragons and elementals. You can even create a new race with unique features on which some starting bonuses depend. Other features: a full-fledged role-playing system with pumping heroes and tactical battles on a hexagonal field. A worthy return to the classics.
Total War: Pharaoh
Creative Assembly does not miss the opportunity to send Total War to a new setting. This time, we are going to dive into Ancient Egypt. In Pharaoh, we will not only deal with the "classical" development of our own civilization but also take into account the level of legitimacy that increases with the seizure of territories. Only after reaching the maximum value will you be able to proclaim yourself a pharaoh or a Hittite king.
Humankind is an analog of Civilization, but it has more of its own than someone else's. Take, for example, the change of cultures during the transition between epochs. However, a fan of Sid Meyer's work will feel at home here: there was no construction of cities, wonders of the world, and turn-based battles. It is worth getting involved a little, and the "last move syndrome" is guaranteed.
Galactic Civilizations IV
Galactic Civilizations IV takes us into the future with space travel to very distant galaxies. In addition to collecting resources, technology development, contact with new species, and battles with them, there was a place in the game for detailed customization of race and space, as well as detailed customization of the fleet. Starting a new game, you never know how it will end because the number of possible outcomes is infinite, just like the universe itself.
