Command & Conquer is regarded as one of the best real time strategy games of all time, having made the genre immensely accessible to fans worldwide. However, the series has not received any instalments for modern consoles, which got us thinking of similar games and the result is this list. Now not all games mentioned below are exactly similar, but most of them have been critical to the success story of the genre, so we highly recommend each of them to fans. Here is the list of video games similar to Command & Conquer that are our recommendations. You can play these games like Command & Conquer on PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC, iPhone, Android, mac or even online.
8. Supreme Commander (2007)
This is simply one of the best real time strategy games that is set in a distant future where humans are able to traverse through the galaxy at will. Developed by Chris Taylor and published in the year 2007, the game is considered to be a spiritual successor to ‘Total Annihilation’, another massively popular RTS game. Humans have come a long way under the guidance of the Earth Empire, a solitary unit responsible for governing all space travel. The quantum gateways used for intergalactic travel was constantly monitored by the Earth Empire, but when the unit fell, all chaos broke loose. There are a number of factions in game fighting against each other for control when they should be working together in order to stabilize the situation.
The gameplay is extremely polished and the storyline will keep you hooked for hours, leading to long sessions. We recommend you have time on your hands before you start playing through this one. One expansion pack was released in the same year titled ‘Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance’ that adds extra units and gameplay content to the original title. A direct sequel called ‘Supreme Commander 2’ was also released in the year 2010 due to popular demand but we highly recommend you get into the series with this one. You will definitely like the story driven tactical gameplay if you love playing stuff like ‘Command & Conquer’.
7. Company of Heroes (2006)
‘Company of Heroes’ is a real time strategy video game developed by Relic Entertainment and published by THQ in the year 2006 for Microsoft Windows PC and OS X platforms. The game is considered one of the best real time strategy games set around World War II and has gone on to win several ‘End of Year’ awards from various reputed publications. You are able to play as two factions during the course of the game that change depending on the situation of the campaign.
