Excerpt: "In order to make this an easier read, I will divide this review up into the good aspects of the game, and the bad. The good: Pretty damn good graphics, although fairly similar to the first one. More unit types. Interesting battle plan system. Cool introduction video. The bad: Unit AI poor Game not balanced (You have to balance it yourself in skirmish, wtf) Campaigns boring and short No cinematics in campaigns, not even an EFFORT. ...
Pros: Decent graphics (though they lagged even good processors), intro cinematic, battle plan system .
Excerpt: "...huge fan of the origional Empire Earth and still play it now, But i have to say Empire Earth was a bit of a let down! Ok the graphics are better i really do not like the gameplay at all, it feels slugish and some what boring to me. No doubt there the up sides of Empire Earth 2 the online capability is much better and the choice of games is also there. But in my opioion if you are looking for a good all round startegy game go for the origional Empire ...
Conclusion: not a great game with terrible graphics and is very slow good tech tree and many troop choices and civilisations do not get cheats for it no matter how much you want them because they will spoil the game on you
Conclusion: Im loving this game soo much. its amazing. the price is fantastic the gameplay is wicked. overall a good package. I would definetly recommend this game over the third one in the series (but thats a personal opinion). The game arrived on time and was brand new. This game works on Vista and Windows 7 (it mentions it on the case itself).
Conclusion: great game worth getting but be warned this game has no widescreen support so if you are running at 1440x900 or 1680x1050 the best you can do is to play it at 1280x1040, their is no fix for this unlike other games where you can hack the config files to run the game in widescreen.
