Sudden Strike 4 is the best strategy game released for Xbox One or even Xbox in general. It combines good old complexity of Sudden Strike games with great UI design done by people who held controllers in their hands. It's not the same as playing the game hunched over your keyboard, but it's close enough. I just wished it was Xbox Play Anywhere enabled.
