Strategy RPGs

This format tends to place great emphasis on battle scenarios. Combat is usually depicted by hexagonal or grid combat fields and makes up at least 90% of the gameplay time. Generally speaking, strategy RPGs focus less on character and storyline development, although they usually include the experience system.

Famous Strategy RPGs:
Shining Force, Dark Wizard, Baldurs Gate

Cairn Hill  21-01-2003
