Endless legend remains as the best example on how to refresh a well known formula of the genre. The differences in gameplay between various factions are this game's greatest assets.
However X-COM 2 WotC is a top turn strategy game currently available.

Thinking about picking up Endless Space 2 for $12 in the current humble bundle. It has to be worth it, right? Already own Endless Legend, but haven’t had a chance to play it much. Also, heads up for those who don’t know: you can get Endless Legend + DLC for under $7 plus some other goodies in the bundle as well (You get Endless Space and Dungeon of the Endless for only $1).

For $12 I'd say most games are worth it (although as a brit that price means more for me than it does for US peeps, I guess). I get the impression it's a weirdly inconsistent experience at times but overall a pretty good Space 4X.

its more turn based strategy then tactics but oke... what the heck you know... The same goes for Warhammer.... The mental attitude thats needed to play the game should actually prevent it from being named in any popularity list. Like you would include one of Germany's 2d ww scientist from in a oversight of people who made great efforts to understanding the genome

I picked up your recommended Warhammer 40,000: Sanctus Reach, with the DLC, as well as Warhammer 40,000: Mechanicus, during the Steam Winter Sale, but it looks like I'll instead get sidetracked (as usual!) scratching my current 40K itch with the non-turn-based Battlefleet Gothic: Armada, in preparation for the January 24th, 2019, release of Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 in just a few short weeks! 8-)

You still seem to think that Phoenix Point is only available on the Epic Games Store. It's also available on Microsoft Store and it is part of the Xbox Game Pass for PC.

Good point, I'll update the copy so it reflects that.
