Looking for a game like...
« on: January 12, 2015, 03:20:33 PM »
OK as it says i have been looking for a game that is somewhat like Age Of Empire 3. Or (Black and White 2). It does not have to be modern and it does not have to be dark ages all im looking for is something that offers the control of massive armys like in age of empires. (Better graphics if possible. If not at least decent) If anyone knows of any games like that please let me know it would help a lot (Price of the game does not matter) It can be old as dirt for all I care all i want is a good game. No turn based please

Have you looked into Supreme Commander or the other Age of Empire games?

Rise of Nations
I enjoyed that one, I also enjoyed Rise of Legends but it was different.

There is a game called 0 A.D. that might fit. It is free and open source, I have it downloaded but have not tried it yet.

Rise of nations is not bad but it does not seem like I could get into it I mean age of empire had a lot more detail put into it. Black and white 2 was amazing and I am looking for something a little more like that

Empire Earth (link) is probably closest to what you want. It was fairly decent. If I remember correctly, there were 12 total epochs (ages) that you could develop through, from stone age up through a futuristic space age. While I enjoyed it, it seemed a bit bland compared to the Age of Empires series, mostly since it was a more drawn out version of the same thing.

Other good RTS games that don't exist in the same time eras include Star Craft, Sins of A Solar Empire (One of my favorites), and the Command and Conquer series. All of them have their strengths and weaknesses.

Other options are the total war series, though the early games had really sucky combat controls; Civilization series, though it is turn based and lacking in large scale combat. You might enjoy Paradox's games like Hearts of Iron and Crusader Kings, though they are too complex for me to get into.

There's a really old game called cossacks that had huge armies, it's on GOG I think
