  • Summary: Parents need to know that although much of the game focuses on military conquest, it's presented in a somewhat historical context. The violence is always displayed in a non-gratuitous manner.

Rise of Nations: Thrones and Patriots

  • Excerpt: Rise of Nations: Thrones and Patriots is the expansion pack to the historical real-time strategy game Rise of Nations ( review ) from Big Huge Games. Thrones and Patriots doesn't differ much from its parent in terms of gameplay, with Big Huge Games using the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" theory for expansion packs. They just threw a whole bunch of new goodies into the game, including new civilizations, new campaigns, and some new gameplay mechanics.

However, the team has decided to move away from the turn-based genre for Rise of Nations. I bet most gamers will appreciate it.

Such a broad scope has been attempted before in the game Empire Earth, but RoN has actually found a way to pull it off and the result is a great real-time strategy game that should not be missed by anyone with an interest in the...

Rise of Nations: Thrones and Patriots Review

Strategy Gaming Online
29 July 2004
  • Excerpt: Many strategy game buffs consider last year's Rise of Nations to be the best RTS title seen in years. It deftly combines age-spanning gameplay along with elements of Civilization (and even a bit of the classic board game Risk) together, and then tops it off with a ton of options and excellent graphics.
