The Settlers: Rise of an Empire Gold Edition Review
20 October 2008
Excerpt: Even though the only draw of The Settlers: Rise of an Empire Gold Edition is the Eastern Realm expansion pack (previously released on its own in Europe), the inclusion of this new add-on is noted only in the fine print near the bottom of the front of the game box. Obscuring this fact actually makes a lot of sense, however, because the new campaign missions are so similar to those in the original game that it's not worth making a fuss over them.
Pros: New Eastern Realm campaign, Eastern maps that feature new desert and jungle terrain
Cons: Expansion missions are very similar to those in the original Rise of an Empire, Runs too much on autopilot and feels formulaic
