Summary: If you love history and a quality RTS, then you found your game. This RTS boasts a number of improvements over the first, in fact this is the best game in the series. Customizing and battlefield control is excellent. I highly recommend this game. (Gamer for over 20 years).
Summary: This game is great. It's similar to the first game but adds some new things to keep it fresh. The one thing I don't like about the additions was the use of houses to increase the amount of population you can have. I preferred the system in the first Empire Earth where all of the population was accessible from the beginning. In addition to this, when I purchased this item, I thought I would get the game pictured. Instead I received the European version.
Summary: This game is excellent! The graphics are great and I love the abundance of features in this game! It is certainly an improvement over the original Empire Earth. However, the game does take a little getting used to and can be confusing.
Summary: this game rox!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! everything is excellent about EE2 except 5 things: 1)every unit goes really fast! example, planes, can reach the other side of the map in about 10 seconds. ships can do it in about 20 seconds. 2)there can only be a certain number of each type of building on each territory. ex: 6 houses. 3)Aircraft carriers can only hold 4 planes, but i guess thats ok, because a plane can stay in the air for as long as it has ammo left.
Summary: Although I was not a huge fan of the original Empire Earth, I found that after playing the demo for EE2 the developers and designers had really gone back and made some sorely needed changes to a game that I thought was second rate to games like Rise of Nations or even Epires, DotMW. The original Empire Earth seemed a bit rough around the edges and unpolished, but the core gameplay was satisfactory.
Summary: I like it. Its much easier to defeat than the old one. Some of the concepts are the same, others are changed beyond recognition. Cheats are there, but in smaller quantities. But they are not needed to defeat the AI on easy. Some new units never really come into play.
