    What's a good strategy game that doesn't require so much (if any) hunting/gathering/building?

    One that focuses more on the battles?

    And one that preferably takes place during 18th century-ish Europe, Napoleonic era.



    I want to command a bunch of armies but I don't want to do the building and all that.
    Maybe a tiny bit of building is OK.

    Thanks for any advice!

    Maybe Advance Wars and Advance Wars Days of Ruin.
    Or Fire Emblem for the GBA.

    Warcraft 3's campaign doesnt have many "deathmatch" style levels and are mostly fairly action orientated.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    Anything for PC/Mac that's 18th century-ish?

    An ancient game from the 90's here...but Myth: The Fallen Lords!

    It was made by Bungie back in it's youth, before it was bought out by Micro$oft for making halo.


    no building in it at all, just straight up fighting.

    sword of the stars is fun, but about as opposite to 18th century as you can get......

    talking about older games, there is warhammer: dark omen, no building etc at all in it, hard as hell though

    Company of Heroes.

    Not 18th century, but it is more action oriented.
