Starcraft and Warcraft 3 are ridiculously similar aside from the hero aspect.

Not really. I understand where you are coming from, with how the buildings are constructed and all, but there are things that made Starcraft play much, much differently. For one thing, there are no units in Warcraft 3 that can attack while invisible. There aren't really units that instantly kill other units in Warcraft 3. Effective Starcraft strategy often has you building multiples of your various unit constructing buildings. Transports are a lot more important in Starcraft. There's a bunch of little things like that which make the two games play much differently.

There were other RTS games which came out after Warcraft 3 that basically used the hero concept of Warcraft 3. I'm having a hard time coming up with what any of those games were though.

Either Dawn of War and its expansions or try the Warlord Battlecry series.

check out Spellforce series; RPG/RTS hybrid. compared to Warcraft 3,there are more RPG in them, and overall are slower paced games. not as good and exciting as Warcraft 3, but definitely have their own charm.

Actually, I daresay neither of those games plays at all like Warcraft 3. Cetainly the first one doesn't.

It's actually kind of weird to think about Warcraft 2 now and consider that was what once was considered a high quality RTS game. If a game like that was put out today, even with updated graphics, it would get torn to pieces. It really hasn't held up well like Starcraft has.

well, you can certainly say it's unique and does better than any other RPG/RTS, but it's not the only game of its kind. There are similar games, but probably not of them is better.

already mentioned in this thread:

Armies of Exigo (a Warcraft 3 clone: how can it not be similar to Warcraft 3? it's just not as good, like all the Diablo 2 clones out there...they are similar to Diablo 2 but not better)

Spellforce series: more typical RPG quests involved.

not yet mentioned:

Dragonshard: D&D version of Warcraft 3

Kingdom under Fire: A War of Heroes; not a good game, but a similar one nontheless.

well, back to OP, if you want similar games, there are; but if you want the same degree of satistactory gaming experience...probably not.

LotR Battle for Middle Earth IITHERSOfi

I haven't played the sequel; the first one is indeed an attempt of RPG/RTS, but I find those two aspects aren't blended well. Way too many conventional RTS missions.

Spellforce is pretty solid, a mix of Warcraft 3 and Dungeon Siege.

Spellforce is as close as you'll get, and it is a fantastic game.

spellforce 2 has more rpg elements and less of an emphasis on RTS but it's still great.

It would be easy to draw up an extremely long list of ways in which they are not similar, but Dawn of War is an easy game to recommend to anyone who likes WarCraft 3.

You mean RTSs in general, or similar RTSs to WC3?

Company of Heroes and Medieval 2 Total War are great RTSs.

Well, Medieval 2 is really addictive, and will have you playing for hours. It's a mix of turn-based and real-time strategy, on an epic scale.

Company of Heroes is very fast-paced, and I think you'd prefer it.
