Summary: I just graduated from the University of Illinois with a Major in American history, my speacialty being the Revolutionary War. I got this game a few weeks ago because I thought it sounded interesting. The game is very accurate to history with a few exceptions such as the fact that, the soldiers can ONLY fight, they would really have been doing plenty of other things such as building shelters and such.
Summary: GSC's "American Conquest's" greatest strength is it's unique historical setting- not many games allow a player to refight the French and Indian War! I basically bought this game strictly because I love that period of history. However, I was a little sceptical about how AC would play because I really didn't care for GSC's first RTS game, "Cossacks," which I thought had terrific potential but it ended up being just a pretty blase "Age of Empires" clone.
Summary: American Conquest is just another ordinary RTS title, adding to the several other RTS games available in the PC gaming library. What makes this game distinct from the others is that its based in North America..well thats good because everyone is freaked out by playing in Medieval Europe.
Summary: This could have been a great game, but there is only one problem with it: There are too many things going on at once! You cannot select one entire group at a time, only sections of a group, and since you usually have over 80 men on the battlefield at a time, things can get difficult to see, and therefore unit management becomes tedious. That's all I really have to say about this game. The engine is pretty, it had great promisses, but this one issue ruins the entire game.
Summary: Sure, the game looks great, but I wish a little more time had been spent on playability. No great improvement from Cossacks. First off, there are too many vexing common sense issues. Native American canoes easily sink top-of-the-line Frigates. So do small boats. Neither can be sunk by ramming as with the Cossacks series. If you've played Cossacks, you'll also notice that all aspects of this game are vastly (and annoyingly) slower.
Excerpt: La course se déroule sur 6 circuits, ce qui est loin d'être exhaustif. Mais ils ont le mérite d'être très variés, très chaotiques et le dépaysement est garanti, on passe de l'Egypte à la Russie ou à l'Allemagne...
Pros: Un mode original
Cons: La bande son est médiocre, peu de buggy et de circuits
Excerpt: Buggy Heat est un jeu de course / arcade assez traditionnel. Les graphismes sont assez bien fait, mais en dessous des plus grands jeux Dreamcast. Par contre, les circuits, bien que peu nombreux, sont tres bien modélisé, long et plein d'embuches.
Pros: Les circuits / L'opinion Internet
Cons: Les graphismes assez moyens / La durée de vie
Summary: Bueno el juego resulta interesante en todos los aspectos, pero dentro de los juegos de estrategia, yo me quedo con la facilidad de armar villas y construcciones por doquier como en Age of Empires 2 o en Red Alert ya que si estos juegos tuvieran la inteligencia artificial de estos tiempos como lo usan los nuevos, serian muy divertidos por horas... Y lo que no me gusta de estos nuevos juegos de estrategia, es?
Pros: MUCHA ACCION
Cons: SE MUEREN SOLOS LOS SOLDADOS O LOS GUERREROS
Excerpt: ...Se siete appassionati di storia americana, AMERICAN CONQUEST fa davvero al caso vostro e ve lo consiglio. Si tratta di uno strategico in tempo reale nel quale vestiamo i panni di tutti i più famosi colonizzatori che, dal 1492, hanno messo piede nel ter ...
