    "If you love RTS games on PC, but you're sick of worrying about APM (what a hassle, right?), and/or are a World War II buff that loves games in that genre, you've gotta give Company of Heroes 2 a try! Super fun, and lots of expansions available, and it starts on the Eastern Front. APM is a time killer, so give this a try and don't bother worrying about it so much."

    "Empire: Total War is a real good RTS. It is on the realm of C&C and StarCraft. This game is not so into requiring APM as the other RTS games are like Starcraft etc.... I find I can think easier when I am not mouse clicking 30-50 times a minute. This is a little easier on my hand when I play. I really like the game."

    "Fantastic intro to real time strategy games. I like space games in general as well as expansion / exploration / mission type games, so this is a perfect fit for me. I also like that it fits more into the "strategy" end of the spectrum instead of the "blast everything in sight" side of things. It requires thought and planning."

    "I've been looking for an interesting RTS game, where I don't have to constantly be on edge, trying to get as many actions in as I can, and this one is it. I like the more relaxed pacing of Europa Universalis IV, as it lets me enjoy the moment and focus on the fascinating historical information worked into the play as well."
