drinkypoo's Journal: Strategy games that don't cheat? 3

Journal by drinkypoo

OK, I know AI is hard (no pun intended) but are there any strategy games out there that don't cheat on any but the lowest levels? Haven't tried Civ V yet, but IV is just another case of easy easy easy IMPOSSIBLE to me... I just can't muster the interest to outsmart a computer program written to cheat against me.

Strategy games that don't cheat?

  • Try Sins of a Solar Empire, I have never been able to beat that game's AI, the game is very slow to play.

    SimCity is fun but gets difficult when you don't know what is wrong.

    Hmm have a look at this: []
    I had no idea some of these games had those features though to be honest.

      Unfortunately, only one or two of those are strategy games... I own Simcity 4 Deluxe, which is pretty decent and even works under wine with the opengl renderer. I also have Black & White 1 and 2 and used to have Creatures but I gave it to a girlfriend.
