great price lackluster game
20 July 2013
Summary: Now don't get me wrong this game is fun, for awhile, The problem I ran into is I started to lose interest after the halfway point the game becomes sort of dull and repetitive and a obvious pattern begins to emerge. Hold out long enough to mob your enemy with basic troops. But my biggest complaint is the unfulfilled description of a war between magic and technology, it never happens.
Summary: I have always loved Rise Of Nations, however, the Rise Of Legends was different than what I expected. With Rise Of Nations you get to choose what nation you want to be a part of but, you don't get to do that with the Rise Of Legends. Still a good game but, I have to admit the Rise Of Nations, in my opinion, is a lot better...
Fun game, but not quite as polished as "Rise of Nations"

Summary: This sequel is a fun and imaginative next step after the huge success of "Rise of Nations". But it doesn't perform as well on my computer, the same computer that runs other video games including Rise of Nations and Patriots. Maybe its not fair to compare, but since it is the same company that made those games I've mentioned, I would have expected something better as time goes on. The game runs spotty. Freezing temporarily.
Tips for loading and playing rise of nations: thrones and patriots

Summary: I purchased the orange cover 2-disc version of this game a few years ago and played a lot of games. I lost the play disc and bought this version of the game -- supposedly the same exact thing. I had a hard time getting Rise of Nations: throne of patriots to load and when I tried to play the game, the text wasn't visible. Fortunately I found fixes for these problems.
Summary: I love rise of nations, it has sucked up many hours of my college career. this game is the warhammer 40k of rise of nations and it works great. The biggest problem is that it DOES NOT WORK FOR WINDOWS 7/ VISTA! if you have xp, get it, if you don't avoid!
Summary: I have to say this order was just alright. The shipment was on time however the game box was not shipped in a protective container and the box was damaged while in transit. The game is great and runs fine.
Summary: I am a huge fan of Rise of Nations. It took the exciting real-time strategy formula of the Age of Empires games and perfected it. I was hoping that Rise of Legends would be a worthy successor, and on a few levels it is. However, after playing through the campaign and a few skirmishes, it's largely forgettable. Gameplay: The game can be quite fun at times. The three races are fairly distinct, with their own heroes, structures, and backstories.
Summary: This game is absolutely astounding, from a fully orchestrated emotional soundtrack to the starts of memorable characters. The teams play well off of each other. Unfortunately this game seems to be incomplete and unpolished. Almost like an executive said 'wrap it up, it goes gold next week'. An entire race has been cut from the final game, and the vestiges can be seen in the files if you dig deep.
