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.

Pros: Vast beyond vast with a great rock-paper-scissors trump system.

Conclusion: Truthfully, there are a lot of good things about Empire Earth that simply cannot be described, but that are really fun to experience. In the end, all I can say is that the variety of features, in terms of gameplay, have shown all the essentials of an excellent real-time strategy game.
Pros: Good unit and backdrop animations, the atmosphere conveys a realistic epic quality, great sound effects, exciting significant missions and gripping scenarios, plus you can lead heroes like William the Conqueror and the Red Baron to victory using your prophets to summon and hurl calamities;
Cons: The anguish of the bad pathfinding system (example: the confusion that crops up when you give orders to your war galleys and ships...), apart from that no apparent weaknesses.
Summary: Empire Earth gilt auf dem PC als komplexes Strategiespiel, das nur von echten Profis schnell zu beherrschen ist. Auf dem Handy konzentriert man sich zum Glück auf das Wesentliche: Kriegerische Auseinandersetzungen.
Pros: Zehn fordernde Missionen, Vier Epochen, Detailverliebte Grafik
