    Default Good RTS game

    Looking for a good rts game, similar in play with strong hold 2 and ages of empire series.

    Want a game with some freedom play, meaning not one where they just keep chaining set goals that are difficult, but give you little freedom.

    Any such options around?

    I played S2 for a couple months...somehow.

    It is extremely repetitive. You kill monsters to level so you can kill harder monsters...so you can level more. Not hating, it was pretty fun, but the quests are the typical "who reads this?" quests and there seems to be little meaning to the game.

    Not many people play online either.

    This one is a frickin beast of an RTS with sandbox-like elements.

    Rise of Nations, Rome: Total War, Empire Earth, Medieval: Total War, Port Royale, Age of Mythology, Civilization 3 or 4, Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds, Lord of the Rings: Battle for Middle Earth.. The list is huge, seriously, take your pick!

    And Sacred 2 is ok, it is better than the first one.

    Red Faction: Guerrilla is awesome. But that is a third person shooter, still has some RPG elements because it is a sandbox.

    Kingdom Under Fire: A War of Heroes

    I have fond memories of this, but I don't remember wether it gave much freedom or not.

    Stronghold 2 has unmatched sieges tbh. Too bad no one plays the game online.

    My favorite all-time RTS has to be Company of Heroes, but it's not like AoE or S2 at all.
