Summary: EE2 was such a good game for so many reasons. As some one that played EE2 and knew it well I was expecting at the very least a similar game for EE3. Totally different in a bad way. First thing I noticed was that collecting resources IS WAY TOO EASY... So you have the army.... the army moves slow and retarded compared to EE2. Defense is nearly impossibe because of the lack of options for EE2 was such a good game for so many reasons.
Summary: If I could give it negative stars I would. The graphics are not that great. You can't just jump in and start playing the game like you can with EE 2. The controls aren't quickly learned like the previous version. They made an attempt and failed. Save your money.
Summary: Of ALL the games i have ever played, this is the sequel i have been dissappointed by the most. I swear Mad Dog thought we were idiots, they must've thought "Our best selling Empire Earth franchise is too intelligent for our players, let's dumb it down and put it a **** of sarcastic audios for the characters." I am not even going to bother writing anymore on the subject.
Summary: It was fun in the beginning, but it did not last very long. Sounds turned out to be quite annoying, some of the most annoying ones still stay in my head and haunt me. Boredom crept in quite fast and the replayability wasn't really there for me. It did look nice overall, technically it seemed to be made ok, but the gameplay lacked a great deal. It did not leave any significant impression in It was fun in the beginning, but it did not last very long.
Summary: The game is boring compared to it's counterparts like Rise of Nations. I would actually enjoy playing CIV2 - very oldschool, rather than this game. The maps are too small with the items on the map, being very large.
