What is a Turn-based Strategy Game?

Turn-based strategy games are ones in which players will take it in turns when playing.

Strategy games themselves require players to plan an action or series of actions and execute those plans to defeat the enemy and achieve victory. Turn-based strategy games work the same way, but will often require the player to think several turns ahead.

Turn-based strategy games often force the player to manage resources, armies, and construction. Emphasis is placed upon defeating the enemy forces through direct or indirect interactions.

Many turn-based strategy games have more complex situations than real-time strategies, mainly because the computer can process more complex calculations with the slower-paced gameplay.

Due to their slower-paced action and a heavy focus on planning and strategy, turn-based games often focus on single-player campaigns rather than online multiplayer.

There is no true setting that a turn-based strategy game will be set, with some being set in fantasy, sci-fi, and even World War 2.

Successful games in the genre include Gears Tactics, XCOM, BattleTech, Panzer Corps 2, and Phantom Doctrine.

What stands turn-based strategy games out from the rest is their ability to lure us in with deep storylines, unique units, incredible locations, simple mechanics, grand-scale vision, and their ability to get us to play one more turn.

 

Why Are We Doing a Top 15 Turn-Based Strategy Games List?

In the world of Turn-Based Strategy Games, fantastic games can be found at incredible prices but you can also be at a greater risk of being left disappointed.

Not all games reach their potential and get a release, unfortunately many games are left abandoned by their developers or are even released in a poor state and are yet still available to purchase on Steam.

Steam is in the business of selling games and sometimes that can mean a drop in quality in order to get more titles onto the Steam Store and available for purchase.

At Allkeyshop, we believe in quality over quantity and because of that we use every bit of data that Steam offers and we use that to provide the most detailed analysis of a game’s ranking.

How Do We Get Our Rankings?

Our rankings will take all available pieces of data into account, in particular we focus on the real ratings, real opinions and recommendations of those that play the game.

As a part of our ranking, we ensure that only those that own the game, have it currently available in their library and are logged into their account can vote for their favourite games. This, along with our other data, ensures we have the most accurate ranking system possible.

We only show the top 15 games so that you are not overwhelmed with hundreds of games and swamped in too much data. We plan on refreshing our top 15 each week, but we may change this plan if we find it has a real demand from you, our users.

Allkeyshop is a price comparator site with the intention of giving players the best price possible for the best games available. We remain fully impartial on prices and sellers, displaying both online sites and platforms such Steam, Origin and Epic, and we remain completely impartial on the rating of those games that we highlight in our rankings.
