Top Ten Best RTS Games

The Contenders: Page 5

81 Emperor: Battle for Dune

I first played this game on the PS1 and loved it, when I got my first computer I searched for this game and played it for ages, it latterly paved the way for me to really get into RTS games, The story line is great, the gameplay is also unique as well and I simply love it.

Released in 2001, Westwood's first 3D real-time strategy game.

The atmosphere is almost the same of the movie of David Lynch in early eighties, the cast and movies inside the atory are awesome and finally the game is one of the best of the Command and Conquer Westwood studios.

I first played this game in 2005. I just installed it on a Win 10 box and I am playing it again 10 years later. Great game that isn't well known and never got the recognition it deserved. To run it on Win 10 go here and follow the instructions. Enjoy!

82 Knights of Honor

If you wan to know the politics and history of medieval Europe, this game is for you.

83 Empires: Dawn of the Modern World

This game, was my number one RTS game in my youth. I loved that the player could zome in on the action like to the ground! Good memories.

84 Original War

One of the best games I�'ve ever played, it has all, story, strategy, administration, many of the battles are unforgatable and the music is just amazing, this game exudes style.

85 Atrox
86 Nemesis of the Roman Empire

This is the most underrated game of all time

87 Seven Kingdoms

This is one of the best RTS game. Certainly it should come in list. The graphic aren't great but certainly the players who have played it know it well.

88 World War III: Black Gold
89 Dark Reign

Played them all, internet cafe worker, this one was the best!

Too little advertising made this great game unknown.

Well this isn't a well known game and it hasn't got a good story.
But the it's gameplay is better than the C&C's gameplay.
Just try it.

90 Kingdom Under Fire Heroes

Most underrated game of all time

91 Commandos 2: Men of Courage

How can this not be on the list?

92 Majesty

Man when I looked at all the RTS games on the market and played most of them all or as much as I could take none came any closer to Majesty magnificient and 'majestic' mechanics.. no seriously if you love role playing a King or Queen or just Ruler of a kingdom or town.. this game is it. Mixes Sim-like interactions with overall Kingdom management and fighting like a normal RTS game tells you to do. Only downside is lack of multiplayer in my opinion or at least I never found it in the first one.. the second installment Majesty 2 has some multiplayer but in my opinion they left out the good parts.. one of them being mainly the meta game aka the quirky and funny characters and 'heroes' interactions and etc.

93 Majesty 2: The Fantasy Kingdom Sim
94 Universe at War

Universe at war is an RTS game which has 3 playable factions, the Hierarchy which are alien mostly, and the faction that invades earth in Universe at war, the Novus which have been chasing the Hierarchy around the universe fighting them for who knows how long, and the Masari, an ancient god like race that has been sleeping for a millennium.

In Universe at war Each faction has their own unique play styles. For example, with the Hierarchy you can stomp around the battlefield with 3 types of Giant walkers with customizable hardpoints and deploy units from them and kickass. The Novus which can be pretty deadly in numbers, spread virus' that they can use against enemies to slow them down, remove fog of war around them ETC. And use the flow network to get around kickly and also use for ambushes. Or the Masari which have 2 different modes, 1 which gives them "dark matter armor, " better rate of fire, but air units no longer fly and they do less damage, and the other mode has ...more

This game is so underrated, but I love it! I have no idea why people don't like it, some people have never even played it, it's a really fun and action-packed game.

I love this game as it is a beautiful mix of melody and RTS ITS A MUST!


100 Wargame: Airland Battle

The series in general is something I've never played before, massive wars, slower passed game play, big maps all allow for a Real RTS experience. Plus its always fun to watch the giant wars by zooming right in.
