  • Excerpt: Graphics & Sound: To be honest, the graphics in Empire Earth aren't all that great. The game is 3D, which is nice, but the units are fairly undetailed, with weak texturing and not many polys. And many of the incidentals on the map--trees, for example--are actually sprites. However, this lack of graphical punch undoubtedly helps one of the main things about any RTS--a large number of units on the screen don't bog the game down, which is a serious plus.

  • Excerpt: The two primary forces behind the successful Age of Empires games were Rick Goodman and Bruce Shelley.  While Bruce Shelley continues to work on the Age of Empires' series latest game, Age of Mythology , Rick Goodman went on to start Stainless Steel Studios.  Now his new development studio has released its first game, Empire Earth, and it's, in a word, expansive.

  • Conclusion: Resource gathering has been upped to five different categories: stone, iron, gold, wood, and food. So, if you’re comfortable with Red Alert’s one resource, EE will hit you like a ton of bricks. You’ve got to be absolutely sure that all your civilians are collecting (or building or populating) something all the time or you’ll be SOL when you start amassing armies and upgrading them. The actual upgrading process is very easy.

Empire Earth

Game Over Online
5 December 2001
  • Excerpt: A couple weeks ago I reviewed Schizm, a game that owed more than a little to the classic adventure Myst. Now I have Empire Earth, a real-time strategy game that has a significant Age of Empires feel to it. In fact, the lead designer for Empire Earth, Stainless Steel Studios’ Rick Goodman, was also the lead designer for Age of Empires. And so anybody who has played Age of Empires, and particularly Age of Empires 2: Age of Kings, will be right at home with Empire Earth.

Empire Earth Review

GameSpot
13 November 2001
  • Excerpt: Empire Earth is a real-time strategy game that spans about a half a million years of human history, the last 200 of which take place 200 years from now. So if you're the type who appreciates ambitious game designs, then you've found one in Stainless Steel Studios' first game, which was conceived by the designer of the original Age of Empires. Actually, Empire Earth has a great deal in common with Ensemble Studios' highly successful Age of Empires series.
