Summary: A well put together game. The reason I bought the game was for the RTS style of war but still having the slower balance for political and diplomatic strategies. The only flaw in the game is that it can start to feel a little redundant after a while. But this can be remedied by simply taking a break from it and playing a different game and then coming back to it later.
Summary: I am very sad to say that despite my best efforts I could not get this installed on Windows 8. It woul begin to load and then crash. So...I installed it on my parents' much older computer and it runs perfectly! I had this game several years before but my older brother pinched my copy and I decided it was time to get another one.
