so the game is great, but when I purchased it

A. Johnson, Amazon
10 October 2014
  • Summary: OK...so the game is great, but when I purchased it, there wasn't anything on there to tell me that the Internet multi-player had been disabled. Even if I had to set up my own server and let others connect into it, I would be happy to do that...but it's just not possible with this version.

Played it because of RON

T Barnes, Amazon
4 March 2014
  • Summary: I loved RON, and with seeing the title, I assumed this was RON with individual heroes like Warcraft 3. Well, I got the heroes right, only they were fabricated stereotypical characters from imagined realms, who appear out of thin air and who almost all end up on the same team.

Big step backwards from RoN

California Dreamin "sr538", Amazon
1 October 2010
  • Summary: If, like me, you loved Rise of Nations, and wanted the next great game from Big Huge Games, you will be very disappointed with Rise of Legends. Game strategy and elements are not well thought out. There is not an intruiging technology advancement timeline.

Rise of a poor sequel

J. C. J. Raybould, Amazon
16 December 2008
  • Summary: I was not impressed with the reviews and the game features when this game first came out, so I delayed buying until now, in order to pay less. I was expecting a Rise of Nations game but with fantasy factions. When I first played I was bemused and was barely able to figure it out.

Pales in comparison to RON

Feng Meng Wei, Amazon
14 July 2006
  • Summary: Gone are the nations from RON and the VAST number of different nationalities, each with different specializations. Gone is the CTW play that pits not only brute strength but also wits against the AI. ROL starts off on the right foot, with impressive graphics, and new races to discover.

Underwhelming

Matthew Dunavan, Amazon
5 June 2006
  • Summary: I've been a long-time RTS player and can honestly say that I've been around the block a few times when it comes to the genre. When "Rise of Nations" came out, particularly when they added the "Thrones and Patriots" expansion, I thought I'd found one of the best all-around RTS games.

Boring

Johnny Cobra, Amazon
13 March 2007
  • Summary: Unfortunately does not follow on from its two previous versions, a bit of a let down from what could have been a good game. Left me feeling "if only"

Starts great but gets really dull

Loyola, Amazon
13 March 2007
  • Summary: The intro to the game looks fantiastic, but once you've played half of one of the campaigns you realise that there is only one tactic and it starts getting really dull. Stick with Command and Conquer if you want a really addictive strategy game.
