Age of Empires Online
A classic RTS revamped into a classy MMO strategy game. At the beginning, you are given a Greek or Egyptian city that acts more like a MMORPG character than a regular city. There are three skill trees that players use to upgrade the economy, the military and utilities. You also store items within your capital city. To level your city up, you have to complete quests, either with friends or solo. The graphics are nice and cartoony. The quests are diversified, but the beginning of each quest is static – all you are given at the beginning of each quest is a ‘city vulgaris’ – a couple of workers and a town hall which you have to settle. The game lacks strategy for beginners, but PvP offers a real challenge, especially if you’re up against players who have purchased paid features.See Videos

After the destruction of Earth by an asteroid, warring human factions struggle for resources (specifically Helium3). This is an excellent combination of 3D first person shooter and real time strategy set in outer space. Two teams with dozens of players per side battle it out over the course of an hour or two. The commander builds bases and sets up mining operations, orders bombing runs, and allocates money. Players can switch between ship types on the fly (and even beefier ships if their commander gives them the cash). New players are encouraged to fly scout ships for a few weeks and lay down sensors to spy on enemy movements or keeping other units repaired that are mining or bombing. Good news for new players: they set up servers specifically for new players so they won’t get taken advantage of by veterans while learning the ropes.See Videos

Alliance Warfare (AW) is an MMORTS, played in the browser. It takes place in the medieval Land of Endless War and has players build and expand their kingdom, create armies and strive for world domination. The game is fairly typical as strategy titles go, but the community is vibrant and open. What’s very special about AW is that it has its own radio station with DJs that actively participate in the game by dedicating songs to players and answering questions. Players complete quests, manage their cities’ resources and form alliances with others. AW offers a quite elaborate research tree with three main branches. The cash shop is quite mundane, offering commonplace buffs and even more commonplace advantages to paying players. Again, the most fun in AW is to be had from the community features and the radio station, which make the game stand out from the plethora of similar MMORTS titles.See Videos

Anno Online is a strategy MMO/city simulator set in the Anno universe. Players build their city and manage resources and production with the ultimate goal of becoming the richest city-state in the game world. The medieval setting and the vibrant graphics supplement the experience greatly. Quite far into the game trade routes open up and the task of satisfying the needs of your populace becomes somewhat harder. However, for a city simulator this game doesn’t offer a real challenge (as there are no disasters, foreign invasions, etc.) and after about 100 hours or so of playing it the waiting times become too long to bear. On the flip side, however, it’s pretty good for a casual game and players who just want to see stuff being built will find that Anno Online delivers well, until after they’re already quite tired with the game.See Videos

Post World War 4 massively multiplayer RPG with some real time strategy elements. Pick from eight main classes with a diverse choice in subclasses. The game's style is hybrid of fantasy and themepunk design with a generous back story. The Noblian and Floresslah (steampunks and mystics respectively) are at war over control of a mineral called Earthdium to help rebuild their world. What image it should be built in however is a matter of opinion. The strategy mode of the game is called a Unit War using basic real time strategy elements with the addition of the ability for your hero to fight alongside the units you create. Unit Wars offer your character high level items and weapons. Movement is controlled with either the WASD keys or mouse clicks. There are multiple vehicles for each faction that have room for multiple passengers. And if you were curious, yes, you can even engage enemies while aboard the vehicles.See Videos

Astro Lords is an MMORPG/Strategy set in a sci-fi universe. Players control an asteroid, construct and upgrade buildings and fight with others to gain control over the Oort cloud. The game can be played on iOS, Android and desktop devices. Players might be positively appalled by the lack of character customization, but that is more than compensated by the fact that eventually you can move your base, perhaps towards the members of your alliance, or the enemy if you feel you can gain an edge. The combat has players duke it out in turn-based combat with spaceships in the vast void. It takes quite some skill and provides ample entertainment, because the fights involve dodging slow-moving projectiles (there are lasers too!) and hiding behind asteroids. You’ll either hate it or love it, but it must be said it’s highly original. Astro Lords is definitely a promising title, but the strategy elements could very well be executed better. The skill tree, huge as it is, confuses the player, because it inevitably makes you wonder if you’re looking at a spreadsheet. Even though Astro Lords doesn’t push players into buying anything, progress is quicker with pockets full of premium currency.See Videos

Battle Dawn is an MMO strategy game, played in the browser. Players start their colonies on three game worlds – Earth, Mars, or ‘Medieval fantasy’ - and each of them has a number of servers. Battle Dawn plays quite differently from other browser-based games, as the game is round-based. Players must form alliances, rally troops, spy or even nuke their opponents in order to capture the ten relics present on each world map; once it’s done, the server gets reset. The game has a peculiar interface, reminiscent of older games like Deus Ex or Unreal Tournament, rather than strategy MMOs. The soundtrack is awesome, too. Battle Dawn is slow in terms of leveling and upgrading your colony, but those interested in it will lose hours upon hours fighting to take control over their world.See Videos

Battle Dawn Galaxies
Battle Dawn Galaxies is a turn based strategy MMO, played in the browser. The sci-fi setting, the ‘empire management’ and other things seem quite similar to those of other games, but Battle Dawn Galaxies should be noted for a number of interesting features – namely, that players have to have mixed armies for any military success; the game is alliance-based, and these alliances have a member cap of 14; players can be conquered by other players, but that doesn't mean you cannot revolt against the conquering armies. The user interface is nice and some ambient songs accompany the game pretty well. Overall, Battle Dawn Galaxies is definitely one of the most interesting new strategy titles, but the game’s strong points can be overshadowed by the limited available information and the rather low player count.See Videos

Big Farm is a casual farming simulator played in the browser. Players start managing a farm and plant fields, sell harvest as well as manage expenses, all to grow their farm. The gameplay mainly consists of harvesting, planting, reaping and selling produce. From time to time players can construct new buildings such as houses for workers, new fields and mills for making flour. Gold, the premium currency, can be acquired without paying but it’s an arduous task without doing so. New players are guided by quests which award money and experience. The graphics are nice and the quest givers can be quite funny. Big Farm is a casual title with all that entails. It’s well-written and can be fun if Farmville doesn’t quite hit the mark for you. At higher levels of play, however, Big Farm becomes increasingly greedy as it just requires so much gold to do anything at all.See Videos

A turn-based online RPG/strategy game, played in the browser. Its game world is not unlike that of Warcraft, with Protoss from StarCraft somehow present, too. You start off with either a warrior or a mage from your faction, and there are three factions -- elves, humans, the undead -- to choose from. You then get access to a castle where you can train troops to conquer territories and expand your ‘nation’, but you’ll get to PvP after quite a while. Call of Gods has nice graphics and a pretty big game world for a browser-based game. The skill and trade systems are there, but don’t bring much new on the table.

See The Settlers Online. Castle Empire is a browser-based MMO strategy game developed by Ubisoft. You start with a town center, construct buildings, gather resources, explore the map and attack lawless robbers once you’ve reached level 17. There are nine troop varieties and numerous resource types that players can use to their advantage. Castle Empire has plenty of social features – for example, you can add friends and send them goods – and this is handy because the game can get tiring after the initial power-leveling is finished. Later in the game players can equip their explorers with minerals which allow them to search for adventures (these always end in a big battle with great rewards).
The graphics are nice, and the game runs smoothly on older computers too. PvP is yet to be implemented. Altogether, if you already like this kind of strategy game, Castle Empire is a completely harmless time waster – but definitely not anything groundbreakingly original.

Castlot is a browser-based MMO strategy game set in 6th century Britain – the time of King Arthur and his knights. Players choose between two factions and are introduced to the fine points of the game with an interactive tutorial. Castlot’s story is definitely a strong point: players will often find themselves wondering what’ll happen next. The other features aren’t that good, though: bland RPG elements do little to add to the game’s overall value; Castlot is centered on battles, and players will be surprised at how boring these battles can be. Furthermore, the long wait times (which can only be reduced through the cash shop) have made experienced players infamously refer to the game as ‘Cashalot’. Not that it’s all bad to be fair: community features are excellent and so are some strategy elements like the ability to set traps, etc. The bottom line – it’s a diverse game that can be fun, but mostly isn’t.See Videos

Conquest of Champions
Conquest of Champions (CC) is a collectible card game that features vibrant aesthetics along with a new, strategic spin on the classic CCG gameplay. CC features three factions—elves, dwarves, and the undead—each having two controllable, battle-thirsty heroes and of course a separate card pool. Players get introduced to the nuts and bolts, but not every nook and cranny, of the gameplay during the six-stage tutorial, and then jump right into action. The combat system cannot be fully described here, but it must be said that it allows for a plethora of strategies as there are two bases plus one hero to annihilate, so sacrificing the main hero for minerals, or utilizing the terrain with counterintuitive moves (like in chess, really)—both are entirely doable in CC. Furthermore, players AND their cards can level up, providing a nice touch to the already fun mechanics. CC looks like a keeper. Players don’t have to buy anything to have a shot at winning; the game seems complex (and intense!) enough to warrant at least a few hours of play; and of course the client both looks and plays quite stunningly.See Videos

Cultures Online is a strategy game with RPG elements, set in the age of Vikings. The game is played in a web browser. You can play as a Viking or an Asian; both races have unique buildings and characters. CO has nice, sketchy graphics, an interesting user interface, and an above-average soundtrack. There are six types of resources; the ‘ideas’ resource is cool, as it stacks up, allowing you to research stuff when you’ve logged in after some time. PvP is optional, and the game doesn’t deliver much in the PvP aspect. There are plenty of quests available for leveling your character and acquiring gold and resources. Cultures Online might be an interesting game for an evening or two, but, as PvP is optional, it lacks the competitive aspect that makes browser-based games so interesting.See Videos

Dark Age Wars
Dark Age Wars is an ‘empire building’ MMO released in 2008. It is set in the Middle Ages, and the player, a squire (historically it would mean the player is 14 to 21 years old) takes over an empty but resource-abundant city and tries expanding it and turning it into an empire. The graphics and the overall interface are quite good and play nicely off of the game’s setting. The game features some nice twists, such as players being able to take over the papacy, but the overall gameplay adheres to the genre’s canon. Dark Age Wars is played in a ‘burst manner’, with players having to wait for long periods of time while upgrading, constructing buildings or conducting research. Overall, Dark Age Wars provides a solid strategy experience and should be preferred by players who like logging in and playing a little each day.See Videos
