Summary: i dont hate the game but that price is a rip. i bought rise of the witching on origin for $10 then they took it off like a month later. not cool EA you have downloads available but don't put them out. shame on you. i also don't care how old it is i see older EA games on steam and origin still.
Summary: I have a Vista OS and have been able to play many RTS games under this system (sometimes with tweaks) but not this set of games. After trying many different things and calling tech support twice I had to give up. I could not get it to run under my Vista OS.
Summary: The game provides no growth as far as building buildings or upgrading your armies. You can play each civ once and be bored. The way you use each civ is the same, they do not have unique attributes beyond naming the armies and buildings something different.
Summary: DON'T BUY THIS GAME. EA Games really botched things up on this one. Look at the game forums..they're rife with people who bought the game yet can't play it because of EA Games' copy protection bug. I bought the game for my son. I don't copy software or pirate anything.
Summary: Probably the biggest waste of a great potential. And the multi-player is just awful. restricted location building. I wish they had just given us the C&C:Generals engine with LotR sweet graphics and flavor. a real bummer.
Summary: A very very disappointing effort. This game was promoted by EA as being a huge strategic warfare game, and all the videos and "screenshots" they released seemed to support this. However almost those shots were from the cut scenes not the game itself.
Summary: What a horrible game. The gameplay is long and boring, the ingame interface is terrrible with minimal functionality. The units are unintersting and lack any sort of stratigic depth. On top of the fact the game is riddled with all sorts of bugs.
