Summary: The original Rise of Nations is an amazing game. The "extended edition" is just a money grab. Save yourself the money and avoid this re-release. This was just Microsoft wanting to get some extra money from its older games, rather than actually spending the development dollars on a sequel.
Summary: This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This a great update of RON....Graphics have been improved very much compared to the classic old version of the game! It was a really good idea to bring this game updated on steam!
Summary: One of the best strategy games ever. Graphics look great in 1920x1080. Hard to believe this game is over 10 years old. A bargain at 20 bucks. If you like RTS strategies, you will like this game.
Summary: Don't know why I didn't get this sooner my dad and I love playing multiplayer and I bought 2 of the these so we could change it up a bit awesome new content, from new nations to buildings, If you enjoy playing rise of nations you must get the expansion.
Summary: I purchased this primarily to use on my new desktop computer but after several reloads and tries finally came to the conclusion that it doesn't work on windows 8. Seems that if windows 8 is being sold my microsoft and Rise of Nations is also being sold by Microsoft they should be compatible. Ended up loading it on my antique Vista laptop which isn't much fun since it's harder to see and that old laptop is slower than molasses.
Summary: This is one of my all time favourite RTS games. It is a fun game to play. The game is intuitive and fluid with a good UI. There is alot to learn and master as with any good strategy game. Highly recommended.
Summary: Very fun game. Games can last up to hours but it starts to get a bit stale near the end. The different classes and upgrade system is well implemented and the different Nations with all their own unique traits is a clever addition too.
Summary: Who can wonder a game that is a decade old with only simple 2D graphics could offer much entertainment even after few years. can believe that im still waiting to get bored with this game. imean, playing one session of 2-3 hours to get me tired and stopped, for a moment though. no more comments. this is a very good game!
