Total War: Eras - Shogun, Medieval and Rome (PC)
1.  Total War: Eras - Shogun, Medieval and Rome (PC) by Sega
The list author says:
  "The Total War series represented a revolution in RTS gaming; the campaign map and creation of units outside of battle alongside larger unit organisation represented a major step to realism."
£42.95   Used & New from: £16.47
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5 customer reviews)

Medieval II: Total War (PC DVD)
2.  Medieval II: Total War (PC DVD) by Sega

£4.99   Used & New from: £0.01
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (89 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

Ground Control
3.  Ground Control by Sold Out Software
The list author says:

Used & New from: £0.01
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (2 customer reviews)

Ground Control II  Operation Exodus (PC CD)
4.  Ground Control II Operation Exodus (PC CD) by Activision
The list author says:
  "Feels nothing like the original Ground Control but still a very good campaign.  Introduces the idea of aquisition points as a means to buy in new units, which are flown in.  No time wasted building."
£3.03   Used & New from: £0.01
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1 customer review)

Homeworld (PC)
5.  Homeworld (PC) by Vivendi
The list author says:
  "Space Combat, what's not cool about that?  Wide range of ships for a massive variation in play style.  Very fun."
Used & New from: £4.00
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (24 customer reviews)

Homeworld 2 (PC CD)
6.  Homeworld 2 (PC CD) by Avanquest Software
The list author says:
  "Sequel of the same high grade.  Both these games have immensely fun campaigns and skirmish features."
£44.99   Used & New from: £0.01
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (10 customer reviews)

Dawn of War: Anthology (PC DVD)
7.  Dawn of War: Anthology (PC DVD) by THQ
The list author says:
  "Dawn of War, again using aquisition rather than mined resources.  Very enjoyable game that has a wealth of background from the 40k Universe."
Used & New from: £14.99
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (20 customer reviews)

Star Wars: Empire At War (PC DVD)
8.  Star Wars: Empire At War (PC DVD) by Activision

Used & New from: £4.50
3.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (82 customer reviews)

Star Wars: Empire at War Forces of Corruption - Expansion Pack (PC DVD)
9.  Star Wars: Empire at War Forces of Corruption - Expansion Pack (PC DVD) by Activision
The list author says:

Used & New from: £9.92
3.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (16 customer reviews)

Starcraft/Broodwar Expansion Pack (PC DVD)
10.  Starcraft/Broodwar Expansion Pack (PC DVD) by Blizzard
