Summary: I Love This Game! But There Are 5 version of Rise of Nations and its Expansion on this one disk. It takes forever for my PC to open the contents on the disk. Part of my disk was unreadable... so the expansion did not get installed... great game, bad job by ubisoft on the remake.
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. And the game control mechanics are not as clean. I recommend trying the free download scenario first before spending your real money and time on this game.
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. On my second attempt I played an easy scenario and got to the latter end of the "tech tree" (so to speak).
Summary: Stopped playing after 1/3 the way through. Why bother. I have consistenly not liked the MS games anyway so I guess I should not have been surprised. There are many with opinions contrary to mine so I guess my best adivce is to see if there is a demo and if so, download an play it first. Maybe it will suite your tastes. Hail Flavius!
Summary: Rise Of Nations: Rise of Legends is suppose to be a remake of the glorious rise of nations but Big Huge games failed. Basically the game comes down to moving your one army around to defeat the enemy.Almost every territory you invade is capture or destroy the enemy capital.Unit A.I. in my opinion is horrible some units get stuck or scatter when you ask them to move around mountain or city.There is not much strategy to the game either it merely consist of building a large...
Summary: I really wanted to give this game a chance. I really did. It looked very nice visually in the screenshots released. But unfortunately there was an utter failure to deliver. The concept of one single linked city was nice. I'll give it that. However, the core mechanics of the game (units etc) were horrible. I would have to say they were even less creative than those of some of microsofts older games such as Age of Empires etc.
Summary: Rise of Legends has three unique, visually spectacular factions, and each one differs substantially in concept from the others and from other real time strategy games. The gameplay in single skirmish battles is reasonably good. I play strategy games for fun, and if I need to hotkey between units and select special abilities three times a second in battle, it's too much work. Each faction in Rise of Legends have hero units with a number of special abilities.
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. However, there are only 3 main races and gone are the individualised races (like the Brits, or Americans in RON)...
Summary: Microsoft Games has proven they can make excellent RTS games. My two favorite RTSes, Age of Empires 2 and Rise of Nations, were built by them. Like many, I bought this game because I adored Rise of Nations. I knew it'd be different, but, wow, I did not expect this. The gameplay is completely different. The removal of gathering different types of resources is discouraging. The three teams are relatively uninspired.
