It's hard to get bigger strategy than the Total War offerings and this years rightful contender for Best Strategy Award is Rome 2. It lets you shape the Roman Empire or even attempt to crush the first red army. Hundreds of different troop units battle it out on gloriously detailed battle maps, under the watchful eye of the generals. Rome 2 has managed to streamline the overview resource management while encouraging much grander battles. The adjustments help create a quicker more meaningful real time strategy than we have seen from the series before. Rome 2 is one of the biggest hitters in this genre melding strategy and management as seamlessly as it transitions between its global and battle map views. Outstanding!
