Summary: i received the item in a timely manner, and is in great condition, however the item received was the expansion and not the full version of the Empire Earth II, so the item picture and description was very misleading.
Summary: I absolutely hated the game at first. It was difficult to control with odd places for icons. The game was different than the original. I thought it wasn't that big a waste of money since it was so cheap, but I was disappointed. I tried playing it again, and although it seems like a complete copy of the AGE OF EMPIRES series, it isn't as bad as I thought. It's okay.
This Empire Earth was not as good as its predecessor =(

Summary: This Empire Earth was not as good as its predecessor =( There were too many resources, and WAY too many different buildings. The game’s biggest positive (variety), is its own downfall. Good Graphics Music Quality Unit Power Adjustable Options Battle Strategies Treaty System “Wonder” Abilities Bad Sound Quality Quantity of Buildings and Units Sound Effect Quality Territory System Campaigns Scenario Editor - thepokeson
Summary: I have been playing Strategy games since 1985. I remember a game originally written for Unix computers that was illegally translated to the PC called Empire. The first RTS games like Age of Empires blew me away and I followed that line until Age of Mythology. At that point, I switched to The Empire Earth series and played Empire Earth until Empire Earth II was released. I couldn't wait to buy it, but I have been very disappointed.
Summary: I was impressed by Empire Earth original version and hence bought this game. I am extremely disappointed with this version. The game runs extremely slowly on 512 MB RAM Pentium 4 HT Sony Machine that I have. Some of the facets of the game are confusing and some seem extremely useless. In skirmish mode, most of your AI allies ditch you. This has happened in all the skirmishes I have played. The Crowns are mainly useless game management issues.
Summary: Stainless Steel Studios has good timing with games. The first *Empire Earth* crossed my laptop as I was settling into my mobilization for Operation Nobel Eagle. I'd come home from long patrols and unwind with a heaping of world domination. I seemed to have an easier time of it than our current Administration. Now Mad Doc takes over and returns the series as I am mobilizing against the Real Time Strategy genre.
Summary: I've played RTS games for a long time. Most of them won't wow you with the graphics but make up for that in gameplay. I had been itching to purchase this game ever since it came out but really didnt want to dish out the full price. I remember the first EE to be a whole lot better (gameplay and graphics wise) than this pile of crap. The graphics arent good... at all. I dont think i've seen so little detail put into units since the original Age of Empires.
Summary: The game is fun when it works correctly. Multiplayer is extremely painful to play because of all the bugs. I'm hoping for another patch soon. It is on version 1.1 as I write this. I needs some real work. I have a pretty good gaming system (256MB graphics card, 1 GB of RAM, etc) and yet it still crawls at times. I had to shut down some of the graphical effects to make it run better (it really appears to be only certain units that kill it.
