Summary: This game is really fun and has some really good customization options for your army. It is also a lot unlike most other strategy games like command & conquer because you control massive armies. It requires actually thinking although the controls can be a bit complicated all the more basic controls that you need are easier to remember.
Summary: This game is the type where you have to savor units and pick them wisely. Best thing to do in a game like this is actually try to be strategic not like Gears of war where you barge into a new level and bayonet some guy, you really have to think out your plan before you play. Each unit is good against something else such as pikemen are good against horsemen and so on. Another thing you need to take into consideration is your hero.
Summary: Decent RTS for consoles. The controls take a a few minutes to adjust to but they're definitely manageable. If you're looking for something similar to the Total War series this will be right down your alley.
Summary: I bought this game two days ago and I finished the EMPIRE campiagn yesterday. I started playing chaos now and it is fun, but I had no idea what is good against what. The game doesn't need strategy. Just send your troopers en masse and you will probably win. The heros are a waste of time, they were hard to use. To cast a spell you had to hold the right trigger, hit left/right on d-pad, and press y, x, b, or a.
Summary: Ok, this game is based off of a tabletop strategy game, so don't expect yourself to be able to jump into the campaign and start kicking booty. Since its on consol, they controls are VERY complicated, I would say get it for PC, but if you don't mind learning them, then go ahead and get this. No the graphics arn't that great, but the gameplay and the story make up for it.
