    "I would definitely check out the new Civ. VI, if you enjoyed Civ. V and Civ Beyond Earth, you are sure to put many, many hours into this game as well! I'd feel free to check out the reviews from others first though, as just one opinion can't justify a pricey purchase."

    "Duelyst is a great tactical game on Steam. It is perfect for those long afternoons when you want to kill some time and earn some cool loot. I would definitely check this one out if you are a hardcore gamer."

    "I love a good strategy so I'm always on the lookout for really great turn-based strategy PC games. When I recently ran across Warhammer 40,000: Regicide, I really, really wanted to love it. But I just can't get into it. It's SO brutal, it made me cringe more than once and seriously outweighed the enjoyment factor. If you like gross, violent games, this might be for you. If not, steer clear!"

    "I have nothing but good things to say about this game. It really incorporates everything I love about the board game, and combines it with beautiful graphics. The expansion packs are very valuable and really give me full range of all of the weaponry from the board game too."

    "I love playing Valkyria Chronicles. Besides excellent gameplay, the atmosphere is fun, the world is engaging, and the graphics are excellent. There's not much more fun to be had than riding around in a tank blowing stuff up,. Fun for RPG fans, turn based fans, or history buffs."

    "Gaming has always been a fun hobby for me, but it had been a long time since I played a good turn-based strategy game on my PC. I looked on Steam and found The Banner Saga. It definitely has drawn me in the way any good turn-based strategy should. I've been playing it pretty much every day."

    "I am a Warhammer fan so your mileage may varies, however this game is based on the very popular Total War series so you can expect a certain degree of quality. I think even a non-Warhammer can pick this game up quickly due to how intuitive the control is. Once I got the hang of it, all the micromanagement aspect of the game didn't seem so bad, I actually grew to enjoy the challenge. SEGA and Creative Assembly did an excellent job on this game and I highly recommend this if you are a turn-based strategy game fan."

    "Not turn based, people can attack and do whatever they want. It's also an incredibly buggy and cheaply made game. Wouldn't recommend even if you were looking for something like this."

    "I love war games! This didn't quiet add up to what I thought it would be. The graphics were great. But some of the game would take forever to load. Good strategy game. Just moves slower than I would like."

    "Hero Academy is one of those games you try then uninstall. I really did give it a try but after a few days of playing I just couldn't anymore. There were never enough players on and of course no single player. I will never understand why designers decide to leave out the single player aspect. I would pass on this one if it were me."

    "The Rebuild 3 is very realistic and makes me feel like I have the power to make the world a better place just the way I want. I love the adventure of fighting with rivals and finding the food at the right time and the strategies to making it all a better place to live."

    "I have different feelings about it. There is no excitement for me, because I can't relate on a personal level. I would for sure try this game, and try to learn new things about it. Although, this looks like a hard game to pick up on and just play, I don't like how a player doesn't have a character, it's more of a battle game, but I can tell a lot of hard work went into making this game."

    "A game was recommended to me when I was looking for the best turn-based strategy PC game. It was Battle Worlds: Kronos and once I started playing I couldn't stop. It has been one of the best games ever for me."

With an easy to use interface, you will be on top of the world in no time in this strategy game."

    "Bushido can be a little complicated, at first, but the graphics are beautiful and the gameplay functions smoothly. It's actually a very complex and interesting game in which you can develop a lot of skill. An added bonus is the Samurai warrior culture and availability in multiple languages."

    "Disciples 2 Gold was a game that a friend got me in to a couple of months ago. I thought that this was one of the better turn based strategy games that I have played on the PC in recent memory. We managed to have a lot of fun even just talking about our adventures."

    "Tales of Symphonia isn't a turn-based strategy game. If you are looking for that style of game you would be better off looking elsewhere. If you are looking for a good JRPG then this is a good choice."
