The Tiberium Wars franchise has kept gamers glued to their chairs since the first game hit the PC in 1995. We’ve seen more than a dozen games launch between Westwood and EA since then, but Tiberium Wars remains one of the best on any platform.
– Ultra-responsive, smooth-as-silk gameplay – 30 single-player missions, in a vast open-world theatre
One of the best representations of this on the Xbox is Lord of the Rings: The Battle for Middle-earth IIaA. It’s the second game in the series and one of the absolute best Xbox real-time strategy games for the Xbox 360.
Real-time strategy games cover many settings, although most have a military aspect. Evil Genius 2: World Domination flips the genre on its head as your job is to rally your minions while evading the Forces of Justice.
Halo has been a staple on the Xbox since the first consoles launched, and the franchise is still strong today. One surprising entry into the series, Halo Wars: Definitive Edition, is also one of the platform’s best Xbox real-time strategy games.
