im in need of a solid strategy game

Hello.

I need a good strategy game.

As I have a mouse arm (like a tennis elbow) and it limits my ability to play FPS / 3D shooters.

I have Crusader Kings 2 and I find it really interesting but its too complex, i tried to get started with video tutorials many times now. I don't have that patience it requires to get started.


I have enjoyed games like:
Sid Meier's Colonization
Sid Meier's Civilization 5
Sid Meier's Civilization
XCOM: Enemy Unknown


I really like :
Ghost Master (i think this is my favourite game by all time)
Men of War: Assault Squad 1 (and 2)
Space Pirates and Zombies


Can anyone recommend a good game for me?

Hey there. Have you checked the Heroes of Might & Magic series? They are turn-based strategy like Civ5. Latest is HoMM: Heroes 6. Seventh is on the way and pre-order at the moment.

Age of Empires II HD is timeless, a phenomenal game. The subsequent releases are also great.

If you enjoyed Civilization 4, did you try any of the great mods for it? Some of them make it a whole new game, and they're free.

And if you haven't played Civ4, it's a way better game than Civ5. Much more depth. Especially with the Beyond the Sword expansion pack.

I'm also enjoying a game called Silent Storm. It's a WWII turn based strategy game. It's quite a lot of fun.

The ultimate strategy game is Chess.

Chess does tend to get a little repetitive and the opponents predictable hence the need for an additional solid strategy game, of course one could get interesting variations of chess.


Command & Conquer Series, it's real time strategy thou.

I Recommend: Command & Conquer III Tiberium Wars, Command & Conquer III Kanes Wrath.

You can even get them both in a bundle pack.
