I was talking to someone about Crusader Kings II
last weekend and about twenty minutes into a hand-waving sermon about how brilliant it is, I realised I'd described it as a turn-based strategy game. It isn't turn-based, of course, but I spend so much time pausing and pondering that I've managed to convince myself that it is. The I started thinking ' what was
the best turn-based strategy game of the year? XCOM
is tactical, I didn't warm to Fallen Enchantress
and Warlock was solid but unspectacular. Have I forgotten something? Eador
looks like it might have learned a trick or two from Age of Wonders and even though it won't be out for Christmas, beta signups have begun
. Here's a new video.
