Default Recent RTS games that run on Mini? - 03-24-2010, 04:03 PM

Looking for RTS or Civ type game suggestions.

I hear Civ 4 is a pain to get running because of 600 vertical line screen.

Other games I'm interested to know if they run are
Warcraft 3
Dawn of War II (yeah, right...)

other fantasy themed RTS you would recommend? I hear that StarCraft game is decent...

Starcraft is awesome. It's an older game, so it should run fine (although I haven't tried).

Also Age of Empires should run, I think even the latest one; if you're interested.

aoe + ror should work, 2+expansion aswell.
maybe spellforce is playable (but same system requirements as painkiller, wich is nearly unplayable cause of tnl emulation)

I'd like to add that Warcraft III runs without any issues.

I am not sure whether we are talking about the same model here. But from my experience, Warcraft III doesn’t run that well on my Dell. It is laggy most of the time. Startcraft would not be a problem. And that game is still rocking after so many years. There are a few more RTS games that you can give it a try, for classics, there’s Red Alert, Battle Realms, and Dune. I think that should be all from me.
