Games like Red Alert 2

I’ve been playing Red Alert 2 and Yuri’s Revenge daily for three years now. And while I love the games to death, I often ask myself  are there other games like Red Alert 2? I’ve done some research and here are a few games like Red Alert 2 I found interesting. The list, even though numbered, is in no particular order.

1. Forged Battalion

A game by the studio who did the latest C&C Remastered. In Forged Battalion you can customize your faction in a new take on real-time strategy. In this game you are not only a commander, but also an engineer. Therefore you have ultimate control over the design and function of your faction’s units, factories…


2. 8-Bit Armies

Another game from Petroglyph studios. 8-Bit Armies is a retro Real-Time Strategy game. With a colorful, blocky voxel art style, 8-Bit Armies is a fast-paced and accessible real time strategy game. 

3. Zero-K

Zero-K is an large Real Time Strategy game. Fight epic battles over land, air and sea on hundreds of available maps. Explore an abandoned galaxy, solo or co-op, in 70 campaign missions. Best of all It’s FREE TO PLAY!!

4. Planetary Annihilation

In Planetary Annihilation you wage war across entire solar systems with massive armies. Annihilate (pun!) enemy forces with larger than life TITAN-class units, and demolish planets with massive super weapons!


5. Supreme Commander

Supreme Commander is focused on using a giant bipedal mech called an Armored Command Unit (or ACU) to build a base, then upgrading units to reach higher technology tiers, and conquering opponents. 

6. Act of Aggression
Act of Aggression – Reboot Edition brings the techno-thriller RTS game Act of Aggression to a higher level. The Reboot Edition offers a full gameplay overhaul in skirmish mode against the AI and in your multiplayer battles.

7. Grey Goo

Grey Goo is a real-time strategy (RTS) game that combines classic strategy mechanics and a balanced combat system with an emphasis on base-building. It puts you at the center of a tactical struggle for survival—and ultimately, control of Ecosystem 9.

Just to clarify, these are the games like Red Alert 2 I find interesting. I’ve only played three of them. But I plan to try them all out eventually.
