    Anything WarCraft or StarCraft, but I guess you already own those. To be honest most new strategy games now are just a bunch of crappy clones of the few great games. Or you could try Civilization 3.

    Knights of the Old Republic. Haven't played it but computer gaming world gave it 5/5 and made it their game of the year.

    command and conquer generals and zero hour expansion. very good RTS game in the C&C series. may want to try out red alert 2 if you like RTS games.

    or you can try age of empires 2 and the expansion: conquerers. also another very good RTS.

    I mentioned it in another thread, and they arent exactly new games, but if you havent played bungie's Myth:the fallen lords and Myth II:Soulblighter you should check them out. excellent RTS series (my all time favorite), and you can probably find them for cheap. There are a ton of add ons/mods/completely new stories available also.
    there is a myth III, but it was developed by a different team, and didnt seem as good as the first 2.

    Forget all these modern games and get some games that are actually good. I would reccomend Fallout, X-Com or Masters of Magic. You could get all three for the same price as a new game and all these are awesome titles.

    I know you asked for rts/turn based games, but you gotta try Quest for the Crown. You won't be sorry.


    ps. I have a link to a strategy guide if you get stuck.

    I would definitely not give it a 5/5. Sure, it's a decent game and the graphics are great but it's nothing that hasn't been done before.

    Baldur's Gate 2 is old, but it's still the best game I have ever played.

    I tried the Blitzkrieg demo and I liked what I saw, though not really being a fan of RTS outside of C&C and SC, I didn't really want to buy it. You might like it however. It's a WW2 RTS, and you play between the Russians, the ****s, and the Americans. It's completely strategy driven and has little gimmicks. You can have a bunch of fanciful tanks and a horde of bombers and a AA and one well placed tank can devastate all that.

    Heroes of Might and Magic 3 is a classic. X-com games are amazing as well.

    kotor isn't an RTS at all. it's a role playing game, not a real time strategy one.

    I'm going to recommend Rise of Nations. I have to admit, the first few times I played, I thought that it was simply an AoE clone, but it's not. It's really a great game. The national border concept is well done, and you don't end up with people building towers practically inside your base.
