  • Summary: Let's hope history forgets this one.
  • Pros: Stylized graphics; turn-based strategy campaign has some interesting ideas.
  • Cons: Battles are boring and slow-paced; unit pathfinding and computer AI is terrible; everything has been over-simplified; awful voice acting; too many stereotypes to count; all three civilizations are too similar; campaign mode is too repetitive; buggy multiplayer.

Empire Earth III

The Armchair Empire

  • Conclusion: Without a doubt, the biggest change in EE3 is in the gameplay. Whereas EE2 was a deep and occasionally confusing array of options, EE3 has gone to the other end of the spectrum and made things more simple. Too simple. Beyond "simple" and into the realm of simplistic. They kept the mechanic of a map being broken up into various territories which the player must conquer by planting a city center in it before the other players.

Empire Earth III Review

  • Excerpt: Gamers have a love or hate relationship with strategy games since they tend to cater towards a different demographic than traditional titles. Sierra’s Empire Earth series has been met with decent acclaim, but its punishing difficulty led to a community division and a relative seclusion from mainstream gamers.

  • Summary: Be careful what you wish for. A lot of RTS gamers have been clamoring for a simplified Empire Earth over the past couple of years, finding the first two releases in the series to be a mess of units and eras as incomprehensible as a history textbook after it's been fished out of a blender. So, welcome to Empire Earth III, a shot back at the critics that answers complaints by dumbing the whole game down to utter dreck.
  • Pros: Strips away a lot of the bloat from the first two games
  • Cons: Just three main civilization types, Overly simplistic world-domination campaign mode, Ineffective AI, Mixed-up units with some bizarre, unfunny specialties, Spectacularly annoying unit-acknowledgment dialogue

  • Excerpt: I en tid hvor alting bliver mere og mere kompliceret, har udviklerne bag Empire Earth-serien valgt at gå i den stik modsatte retning og valgt at dele verden op i blot tre slags mennesker og verdenshistorien op i kun fem epoker.

Empire Earth 3

Outerspace
17 January 2008
  • Conclusion: Empire Earth III é uma mancha na reputação da série. A responsabilidade disso não é o fato do jogo estar bem diferente do que já foi, mas sim a falta de capricho com que foi feito. São inúmeros os defeitos que existem nesse título, passando pelos gráficos e som até o balanceamento das unidades e a fraca inteligência artificial.
  • Pros: Sistema de controle de territórios;, Conceitos interessantes no modo World Domination.
  • Cons: Gráficos fracos e ainda assim pesados;, Jogabilidade repetitiva e tediosa;, Estilo cômico sem graça;, Mal-acabado;, I.A. fraca.

  • Summary: Empire Earth släpptes under realtidsstrategispelens storhetstid och konkurrerade med jättar såsom Age of Empires . Men med hjälp av bra grafik, en välgjord stomme och riktigt skön spelkänsla lyckades det slå igenom. Så att det kommit en tvåa och nu ett tredje spel i serien är knappast förvånande. Vad som däremot förvånar mig är att trean är ett riktigt hafsbygge som inte ens kunnat konkurrera med seriens original om de släpptes samtidigt.
