REAL TIME STRATEGY 1989 2013
Herzog Zwei is considered one of the best
two-player genesis games, combining the 1989
arcade-style play of Technosoft's own

of one of the three interplanetary houses, the 1992
Atreides, the Harkonnen or the Ordos, with
the objective of wresting control of Arrakis
from the other two houses.
ORCS AND HUMANS

inhabitants of Azeroth, and the other controls 1994

that could be selected by a number key, and
control numerous unites at a time.

midst of a galactic war, with battles taking 1997
place on the surface of planets and moons.
The efforts of the player are centered around
constructing a defensive base and an
offensive force, and conquering opponents.
In starcraft all units are unique to their
respective races and while rough 1998
comparisons can be drawn between certain
types of units in the technology tree, every
unit performs differently and requires different
tactics for a player to succeed.
C & C: RD ALERT 2
Command & Conquer:Red Alert 2 contains
two distinct story lines depending on which 2000
faction the player wishes to play a.

game to select one for their randomly; these
civilizations are loosely based on actual
