The Best Strategy Games of 2022

Maybe strategy games are past their prime. However, this doesn't mean that the genre has been forgotten. We are still getting great games and 2022 was no different. Welcome to our summary of the best strategy released last year.

It's hard to find time to play through all the games in our backlog, let alone try out every new release. There is no denying that because of this it is easy to miss good titles. Only this time we got you - here is our list of the best games of 2022. These are editors' choices of course.

Our list also shows how diverse and different strategy games can be. Surely every fan of the genre will find something for himself here. On the other hand, players that are usually on the outs with strategies are offered a chance of entering the world of one more turn, one more mission, and one more win.

Against the Storm

The title of the game may suggest dynamic and brutal gameplay, but it's quite opposite - here the enemy is time. Against the Storm is inspired by classic city builders, Dungeon Keeper, and older installments of The Settlers . Our goal here is to build a network of settlements that will reinforce the last bastion of the remaining creatures of a fantastic world. We start with one camp - by erecting appropriate buildings, as well as clearing trees to reveal more land the player develops the community.

In addition of creating a proper network of buildings to ensure a steady flow of resources, we must tend to the needs of the species. There are four races in the game, but only 3 can inhabit one settlement at one time, and these are harpies, humans, beavers, or lizards. Each species has different needs and is applicable to different tasks. Fulfilling the needs of everyone at the same time is not possible, but you can at least try, as if we start losing villagers, the queen won't be pleased, and if continued, you may lose the game.
