From it’s very early release in the year 1998, StarCraft has always managed to make its place well in the hearts of all its fans both playing as well as following till the very day. And I guess that is the very reason that the StarCraft team had managed to pull off one more series, the StarCraft: Remastered, just two years back in 2017 scoring a 9/10 score from IGN entertainment.
Also, I believe that once StarCraft made its debut into the gaming world. It also helped pave the way for other strategy games to make a place in the competitive world of digital games. With that said let us have a look into some of the other “Best Strategy games like StarCraft which you should definitely try in the year 2019”.
If you are into fantasy and fiction, then this is the perfect strategy war game for you. Coming with a number of cool and mystical factions like Lizardmen, High Elves, Skaven and Dark Elves.

All you need to do after that is think like a ruler, build your army strong, conquer over lands and finally rule over all the races through skilful strategy and planning. And since, it is a turn-based strategy game, with each turn you play the chances of winning or losing a battle or an entire war is defined by how you make your choices, giving a special thrill altogether.
