Best Xbox Strategy Games
This is a full list of the best Strategy games available on Xbox. We define Strategy games using the genre definition: Covers both strategy and tactical games. Strategy games give the player command of resources which must be used strategically to defeat enemies. Common gameplay elements include building and defending a base, directing offensive units against opponents, and upgrading technology. Tactical games rely on the terrain influencing combat and movement regulation via grid use. Battles are often story driven. The concluding event need not be the destruction of the opposing unit(s).
