    Default need new strategy games

    i like deep strategy. i don't like point and click rush/build rts.

    i'm eagerly awaiting empire total war, and am trying to get my hands on Ageod's civil war.

    any more suggestions?

    If you like space strategy games at all, then Galactic Civilizations 2 is a must-have. I just picked up the Ultimate Edition (which is the base game plus both expansion packs) a few days ago, and am definitely enjoying it so far.

    The correct times (For those interested) are:
    CK: DV - 1066 ->1453
    EUIII - 1399 ->1820

    And I have to also suggest EUIII - I just started replaying it with Magna Mundi Platinum again.

    Ok, much more a tactics game but still apparently the best battfield experience out there.

    XIII th century death or glory looks like an amzing game.
