    Command & Conquer 4: Tiberian Twilight

    C&C4 is a curiosity, one that succeeds in moving the RTS genre forward and is at times brilliant fun, but it fails as a fitting finale to one of the most loved science fiction tales in gaming. So here it is, the end of the... more

    Supreme Commander 2

    As far as ports go, SupCom 2 on 360 is a middling success. Controls wise, it works well, which is great - at least as well as Halo Wars. But it falls down in some crucial areas. What a strange beast the console real-time... more

    Savage Moon: The Hera Campaign

    It's hard and depressing, but if you put in the effort, you won't be disappointed. PlayStation Network-exclusive Tower Defence game Savage Moon was great. It was bleak, gory and, above all, hugely satisfying. So it is with... more

    Toy Soldiers

    The tower defense game is a rare breed on XBLA, but Toy Soldiers waves the flag for its genre valiantly. The strategy is in depth and the shooting is solid. There's an endearing irony to Signal Studio's Toy Soldiers; a game... more

    The Settlers 7: Paths to a Kingdom

    Settlers 7 is a fabulous game. It's unique, challenging, refreshing, and all sorts of beautiful. If all-conquering internet phenomenon FarmVille is the natural evolution of anything, it is Settlers. Settlers, as any PC gamer... more

    Like any standard RTS, R.U.S.E. is an exercise in balance. The difference here is that this game tries to simultaneously balance the interests of the console and the traditions of RTS. Every so often all of that talk about... more

    Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II - Chaos Rising

    There's little wrong with Chaos Rising. In almost all respects, it's a better game than Chaos Rising, and from a campaign perspective, the best since Warcraft III. It is a problem that has befuddled RTS developers for years:... more

    Might & Magic Clash of Heroes

    The combat system is almost flawless. Bar the odd insane difficulty spike, even the dreaded grind is pleasurable. It attains that holy grail of game design: easy to learn, but hard to master. Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes,... more

    Plants vs. Zombies

    The basic gameplay isn't exactly original, but it's been executed so well on the Xbox 360 that it absolutely needs to be in your collection. PopCap Games should be a household name for gamers. If you haven't played Peggle... more

    Civilization V

    Civilization V is the most playable Civilization game to date. Yesterday it got so bad I played Civilization V while eating breakfast and dinner; I swapped lunch for a few snacks so I could spend more time defending my western... more

    StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty

    StarCraft II can be daunting, distressing and demanding but it's one of the richest and most expertly produced video games of recent years. When we left off, in 1998, the insectoid Zerg had just betrayed the technologically-advanced... more
