Summary: i thought the the new empire earth II would be as thrilling and exciting as the first version. Wrong. Requieres too much ram resources, and the game it's just not fun anymore, even tough has some cool new features but the game isn't friendly enough.
Summary: This game is much easier than its predecessor. Its game play is only but a fraction of the time as EE was. Despite all of the new buildings and epochs, there seems to be less to choose from once you make your initial choice of a race.
Summary: To me, the authors of this game concentrated far too much on looking pretty instead of gameplay. The computer player knows every move you make even when no elements have come near your defenses. Walls tumble down without any problem and look horrible when you try to rebuild them.
Summary: What a dud. Love Empire Earth. Still play it. EE2... Doesn't even come close. More like rise of nations (which I hate too). They didn't even include their classic "all your base are belong to us" in it. If you want a great game, get EE1.
Summary: I have been playing history related rts's for quite some time now, starting with Age of Empires 1. The first empire earth didn't really bring anything new to the standard success formula of these games, it just had 'more'.
Summary: The game itself is good, its got so much more depth than other similar games (AOE, etc) but this particular version probably isn't the one to go for. This one doesn't have any multiplayer play which isn't stated in the description.
