The good and the bad and the niceness

Summary: I always loved rise of nations had the game for a long time till I lost the first disk. I wanted to get a new one, so I did and here we are. The nice part of this disk is that it comes as a one disk game and after you download it you don't need the disk, the version I did have you had to have the disk. All file download with this one. I also enjoy that it has all the nations in it that matter.

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: In Rise of Legends, you play through strategy fights in a world full of robots, magic and guns. It's an odd mix of Renaissance Europe with mech warriors. There are three campaigns you can play through. First comes the Vinci. Are we surprised that, with all the Da Vinci Code hype that is going on, that we get a Vinci campaign immediately? I'm surprised that they didn't say things like "Unlock the CODE of your Da Vinci hero ...
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.
Summary: The game is old enough to still come on a stack of CDs rather than a DVD, and the support for the game is dismal. Between Microsoft's lackluster marketing attempts, and the difficulty experienced by hundreds, including myself, to apply patches, this game was clearly an afterthought to Microsoft. The campaigns storyline is engaging, and the gameplay is a fun twist on a tired theme. The added gameplay elements manage to be complex without being complicated.
Summary: I have played many RTS games and compared to Rise of Nations, the best ever, Rise of Legends is shallow and repetitive. I have to disagree with the other reviewers about the interface - I found it intuitive enough, and did not have to read the manual. I also did not have any problem with the frame rate. The problem with the game is that there is just not much to it.
