Total War: Three Kingdoms is a top-tier Total War game, and the pinnacle of historical and real-time strategy tactics.
Leviathans doesn't exactly shake up the game, but it fixes a few balances issues and adds enough variety for a few extra runthroughs.
World War Z has no challenge, or tensions, or conflict; and a game with a horror setting but nothing horrifying is just horrifyingly boring. It's fine on a technical basis, though.
Rome: Imperator is one of Paradox's biggest and best games - it also has a bigger focus on military expansion than their other games.
Warparty is a fine game, but fails to differentiate itself in gameplay
It's the Tropico you know and love - but with a new developer, it should have had more than that.
It's probably the best RTS available on consoles right now, and a great example of an expert port.
Tiny Metal is a fun little strategy game, although a few issues stop it from being truly amazing
It's a fun and well-designed strategy game while it lasts, but there's not enough content for it to have any kind of longevity.
Scarce content removes the "strategy" from "real-time strategy"; this homage to classic RTS games sadly fails to imitate them.
My Time At Portia isn't a game as much as it is a holiday, an adventure, and an achievement in indie game production. The intriguing world, compelling systems, and simple gameplay all makes it a fantastic experience.
While it misses some of the best features from its predecessors, Just Cause 4 is a captivatingly fun experience, with enough new mechanics to be a staple for action fans.
Jagged Alliance: Rage! has great tactical gameplay, and enough interesting ideas, however its various elements struggle to line up to make a constantly captivating experience
An expertly crafted shooter with worthwhile narrative endeavours, that's a little too light on content for the time being
It's a faithful and fun remaster, although it doesn't push the boat out in any way.
11-11: Memories Retold is an unabashed artistic masterpiece; its few technical problems barely detract from a fantastic game.
Damsel's gameplay never comes together, and it's too repetitive to be particularly fun.
A lack of variety doesn't mar an otherwise captivating game - it's a compelling strategy and tower defence game.
It's far from a perfect game, with many bugs and oftentimes boring gameplay, but when the game does come together it makes for a splendid experience.
