But I like this one. I find the learning curve a bit steep, But I am getting enjoy the difficulty and the turn based nature of play. I was a die hard RTS fan some of my favorites being age of empires series, the command and conquer games and warcraft/starcraft series. But since the RTS genre seemed to have died, I'm trying out turn based strategy games such as this and the Civ series as a replacement for my RTS itch. How does civ 5 compare to this game? is the learning curve higher? Are there any other games with similar quality in this genre?
