    It's neither an MMO, nor an RPG. It's not even online. The "online" part in the title's name merely references to its head-to-head function through TCP/IP and LAN. The game has an (quite strong) AI which you can play against.

  3. Yes, that has been demonstrated already. On another note, I removed the Geneforge/Avernum series since I think after having played them they're rather light on tactics. You only control four characters, and battles rarely involve more than half a dozen opponents at most. I find I end up using the same buffs and attacks over and over again. I think BG2's combat encounters required more thought and planning on my part, despite the action-y elements.

  6. Updated the link to Stellar Forces, and added Atlantica Online to the MMOs section.

    The Myth series is already listed.

  9. I'll try doing that. Thanks.

    Also, added X-Commandos and Isochron.

    [edit]
    Should be alphabetized now, and I've added release dates for most of them.

    Can I be a pedant and ask you to move Stellar Forces from the X-Com clones list and put it under "Other turn-based games - scifi". It's not really like X-Com at all (apart from being a Squad-Level Tactical Game of course) and more like Laser Squad.

    Thanks. :)

    You could also change Xenonauts from "very early development" to "currently in Alpha, release in late 2012 or 2013"

    Team Assault to "released"
