I raise to you: Heaven and Hell, a god game that never gets brought up.
From what I can remember you play as either God or Satan and you use your avatars to convert villagers and fight your opponent's avatars.
I think there were three different types of avatars, the prophet, bard and warrior, but how they exactly worked I can't recall.

Good one, never hear of it. It's a fine line between "forgotten" and "obscure", people often bring up games that were in the top of the charts when they came out, but waned as quickly. And then there are games that nobody knew about even when they came out.

I remember when me and my brother found this game in a small store and buyed it but we were never able to run that game on PC. Now the game is on Steam and thinking on trying it out. I do love the aestethic and art direction of it.

Heroes of the Annihilated Empires, a shame it is very clearly unfinished, specifically with the campaign only focusing on elves and undead, with only elves being playable and as far as I remember the dwarven and frost factions never actually appearing in the campaign. There was also a 5th egyptian style faction planned and I think they actually appeared in the campaign.

This game was my jam as a kid. Even when I replayed it a couple years ago I still found the gameplay decent. For sure the aesthetic is something that pull the game high up. The AI isn't the best. There is one easy trick you can use in siege missions where you use mage or hero with fireball to clear up the enemy wall from archers. Spells have greater range than arrows, so the archers won't fire back at you and they won't even try to run away from your attack. Mages overall are pretty overpowered. Especial necromancers. You won't kill them quick enough and you can ended up fighting with twice bigger army than the enemy initial had.

Yeah, and it's also made by studio behind Cossacks series and American Conquest. In fact the game runs on the same engine as the mentioned games.
Also correct me if I'm wrong, but I think, beside some star wars games, this is the only movie based strategy game. Or at least movie based rts.

Looks very cool. You can only move units via the mini-map or normally as well?
Also was expecting subs to come into play but looks like they aren't there.

>>556620
What kind of faction is that? Never played Seven Kingdoms 2, but I thought it has real life nations and the pic related looks rather fantasy like.
>>
>>552431 see >>548601
well, there are also some games based off lotr, jurassic park, star trek, starship troopers, battlestar galactica, maybe more (some of them are more connected to books, yes, but still)
apparently there's also this... thing

Playing it right now and I kinda like it. Tactical battles are meh, but the setting is fresh to me and world map activities are various and numerous

>>557172
I haven't played in a while but I think this is China. The game has fantasy stuff, monsters called Fryghtans and human civilizations
>>
>>557213
I can't believed how could I forgot Lotr rts games and missed AvP game posted before in the thread. Also speaking off Platoon, this just remaindered me that I know another potential rts movie game. It's 9th Company: Roots Of Terror and it might be based on the Russian movie with the same title or simply be based on the same events as the movie.
>>
>>557434
>9th Company
oh yeah, I remember it. iirc it's kinda good, somewhat similar to men of war
>might be based on on the movie
it is
some of the film's characters are present in the game and if any of them survives the final battle you get a secret mission
>>
>>557434

There's also an RTS based on Platoon. Can't speak for how well it plays due to the damn thing never working.

I've tried it once. It is unparalleled at conveying the overwhelming despair and futility of the WW1 trench warfare.

Yeah, it's kind of sad that when you go to Eugen Systems page there is nothing about it. You would only know about if you played it back when or look up some sites, like wikipedia. It's basically abandonware now, you can download it on some sites.

Have you played literally anything else not made by 2 dudes in a garage?
>>
>>578164
Yes.
>>
>>578319
I don't remember which one I played, but both the rat faction and the bird faction had a snowballing uncounterable strategy if you started earlier than your opponent. That's some pretty shitty balance.
>>
>>578342
You played the strategic map mode where you built cities? That was the first game, second only had story campaign like King's Bounty. It was average, I mostly played the vs mode, pure deckbuilding and it was one of the most fun cards game I ever played.
>>
>>578396
Not sure, I've only had several heroes who could find additional cards on the adventure map.

>the vs mode, pure deckbuilding
That's where the problems become the most apparent, yes. In the campaign you don't (immediately) have all the cards enabling the bullshit.
>>
>>578565
In 2 you have one hero during campaign from what I recall. In 1 it's more like HoM&M.

Default decks are tiered, that's a good start for balancing it. For a new version they would need to add some restriction, like point buy system.
