Not that good

Chavarria, Amazon
8 October 2006
  • 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.

It needs work

Sandra V., Newegg
3 January 2006
  • Summary: It's definitely not worth buying, especially if you've already played games like the ones I mentioned above.
  • Pros: It has a lot of features and units.
  • Cons: Unfortunately the interface is way to cluttered. There are way too many hotkeys to memorize compared to Warcraft III or Rome: Total War It really should of been more streamlined.

  • 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: I agree fully with Scott L. There are much much better RTS games (like Empires: Dawn of the Modern World -- which is 2 years older and a lot better).

Disappointment to game players

Too-Dang, Amazon
17 July 2005
  • 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.

One big bomb

Gary O, Amazon
14 May 2005
  • 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.

Could have been better...

Mr. Trevor R. Smith, Amazon
5 May 2005
  • 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: Lacks the flair and design of the original, very disappointing. I find the UI and engine quite disgusting, mad-doc have made it feel far more amatuer. A definite step backwards.

Good game but not this version

Tom1881, Amazon
5 May 2011
  • 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.
