  • Excerpt: Being a fan of the real time strategy genre I was pretty excited to get my hands on Rise of Legends. Developed by Big Huge Games and published by Microsoft, Rise of Legends looks to improve and expand on the large success of its predecessor Rise of Nations. While I never got a chance to play the original I had heard good things about it.

  • Excerpt: Microsoft Game Studios seemed to have a slight misstep with Age of Empires III, a fun if not limited RTS that almost redeemed itself with the home city feature. Rise of Nations, another MGS production under the development of Big Head Games was a beakout hit and critically acclaimed. The sequel, Thrones and Patriots, proved that they weren't going to fall into the Sophomore curse.
  • Pros: ups: Excellent artwork, good balance of technology and magic
  • Cons: downs: Terrible storytelling and voice acting

Rise of Nations: Rise of Legends

  • Conclusion: Resurserna hamnar så högt ovanför resten av spelet, och har en alldeles för lös koppling till det klart understrukna krigandet. Det känns väldigt indirekt när man avancerar sina trupper med målet att tjäna mer pengar och när krigandet inte heller är speciellt spelarengagerande så lackar jag. Det här är ett tråkigt spel som är alldeles för överproducerat för sina idéer.
  • Pros: "Innovativt"
  • Cons: Obegripligt resurssystem
