    Hello there folks, sorry if this has been posted, but the search function doesn't seem to work for me.

    Anyway, I just wanted to ask has there be any basebuilding RTS games semi-recently that you guys would consider playing? I have a huge urge to play one but I can't really find anything to go by.

    I've played:

    Starcraft 2
    Company of Heroes
    Command and Conquer series (up until 3)
    Age of Empires
    Supreme Commander
    Sins of a Solar Empire

    I also own Earth 2160 but've heard mixed thing about it so I'm not sure whether to go for that one or not. Anyway any suggestions would be great, I'm not huuugely fussed if it's old, but some more recent games would be nice.

    Cheers.

    Dawn of War is fantastic, not so much the second as there's no basebuilding.

    Dawn of War
    Dawn of War: Winter Assault
    Dawn of War: Dark Crusade
    Dawn of War: Soulstorm

    The 'first' being the above listed. Although Soulstorm was probably the weakest of the series. Dark Crusade is stand alone, but to use all the races in multi you need to own the first two titles.

    This might fall slightly out of the 'semi-recent' category, but if you haven't you really should play Homeworld 2.

    Thanks for the suggestions guys, they're both games I've heard lots about but barely played so I'll give them a go. Considering Rise of Nations too.

    RON is excellent, as well as its expansion Thrones and Patriots.

    I recently saw the newly released Enhanced Edition. This version fixes anything?

    Where can you get KKND 2? I've only been able to find KKND extreme on gog.

    To the OP though i give a +1 to the original Dawn of War series, very good games. Although in my opinion the camera doesn't zoom out far enough, would be nice if that could be fixed :/

    Yeah, after playing a lot of SupCom it's worse again. I love the DoW games but I'd kill for the ability to zoom out further.

    Just base building or some city building ? Depends really how hardcore you want to go, Sins of a Solar empire is great, but very slow game, SC2 is good but it's very fast game.

    CoH, SupCom1 (2 is bad) would be good also, C&C's then are a bit iffy.
