An expansive wargame; capture the entire world!
Empire - War of the Century is a wargame that doesn't care about history or alternative history, all it cares is that it offers you sufficient materials and tools so that it can be playable, immediately. In terms of weaponry, types of soldiers and setting, it's like a Sci Fi game, though not in the very distant future. Thus, you will feel like you are playing some alternate, modern military world game; there are ships, there are planes and ground units and there are even submarines. The game is not played in chunks, in levels, you start a world campaign with each new game, so it can take a while to finish, be victorious or a lover. The map is also quite huge, but the overall tactical portion of the game is simple; both you as well as the enemies have access to only 8 different units, which keeps the gameplay simple, but also very involving. Basically, between you and the enemies, you share similar powers and units, and so, the winner is generally the better strategist, the one that was more capable of using his units better. Graphically it can be a bit underwhelming, with 2D maps and units, but it looks alright. Also similar, download World Empire, which is similar in theme, but more strategic than tactical.
