Nice game, too bad it randomly crashes even with all the patches.

Summary: I actually like the game but cannot play it because it randomly crashes while loading a saved game. It does this with ALL the patches applied, and on two different computers. Both PC's are high spec machines. I have tried everything to fix this problem and nothing helps. When I say it crashes I mean it REALLY crashes, goes to a blue screen and reboots on both PC's! Even makes me restore my desktop. I plan to complain to the manufactures about this.
Summary: This is bad. This is very bad. I don't want to go through all the flaws in the game since a lot of reviews here cover it up marvelously. I suggest "A kid's review" for a person interested. Poor AI, straightforward approach and lack of random map generator makes it an OK buy for $14.99 and the price tag of $9.99 will make it a very good deal in my opinion.
Excerpt: This isn’t going to be the longest review I have ever written as I didn’t really get very far with the game, and not through want of trying it just gets ridiculously difficult very quickly. The first few levels are good fun, the basis of the campaign mode is to build your empire and defeat various obstacles put in your way (one big one per level).
