I've been playing a few 4X games lately, so I'm wondering what other people's favs are!
My favourite two atm are: Sins of a Solar Empire and Galactic Civilizations II. Anyone got any others to recommend? Is there something like Rome Total War set in space kind of..?
hmm what does 4X mean?
I know its something to do with RTS games, but thats about it. I have Sins of a Solar Empire, and its honestly not all that i was expecting it to be. The strategy is good and all, but the graphics don't seem all that impressive, and alot of the effects like explosions are pretty small. Its a good strategy game, but its doesn't have that epic feeling that it was supposed to. Also, there's no single player campaign at all.
oh rts games. alright. dawn of war is my favorite. then comes command and conquer next comes CNC zero hour the sequal. and i guess thats it. oh and the world in conflict demo was awsome.
I dont play so much rts games but i have enjoyed Warcraft3 lately( not sure if it counts :p) And another one that i almost likedt was stronghold.

Yeah. Stronghold was great. I just noticed there was a second one :rofl:Warcraft 3 for me too.
My favourite 4X games... Sins of a Solar Empire (kinda 4X), Civ 4, and Galactic Civilizations 2.
sins of a solar empire. beyond a doubt. in fact. im goign to go play it now
C&C Zero Hour and Medieval 2 Total War are my fav.
So you know, a 4X game is not an RTS game. It's more of an empire building game (Masters of orion etc). Although quite a lot have incorporated RTS/RTT elements (Sins of a solar empire).
