Empire Earth User Reviews
General/Summary: Overall this game is pretty cool, when i first heard about this i was quick to get some money together and buy it but there were some flaws, like how long it takes to get the resources together to build anything and the length of time it is to train units. Empire Earth is worth buying but I would recommend Age of Mythology or something else. i thought the idea of a game that starts in the prehistoric age and ends up in the future would give me more hours of fun
Gameplay: The game can be fun if you get good enough but for anyone who isnt a real master at these type of games w...
Variety of units. Clever campaigns. Good tutorials. Decent Interface.The bad:
Graphics are a bit raw. Resource gathering remains exactly the same throughout all eras of human history. Combat system is too simple and very very silly. As a result the AI is occasionally unbeatable due to its ability to manipulate the system better than a human player can. Propehts and mechs are asinine and juvenile.Summary:
Combat system is based on the old Panzer General A takes B which takes C which takes A system. The outcomes here are even more lopsided though with one swordsman able to butcher two or three elephant archers because "shock weapons beat missile weapons". The one sided combat applies through all eras and types of warfare, so galleys beat battleships (!) just as readily. Its as if there's no combat algorithm besides "A always beats B". Why bother giving the units combat factors if the outcome is always so certain? Age of Kings and Rise of Nations do it better, where Unit A may have an advantag...
The Gameplay and the Capaigns.
Campaigns too hard and Scenario editor Triggers are hard to figure out.Summary:
Well, the game is very good for one thing. The random maps are very detailed, and the A.I. is very challenging. I like the scenario creator, except for the triggers which is too hard to figure out. The game does have a big downfall. The gameplay is very ahrd, which kinda takes the fun out of the game, but that is also what make the game good. It makes you want to come back for more. Overall, this game ROCKS!
many usable units and playable epochs, fun too play on the internet, Scenario editor is the best there is and is succesor too AoEThe bad:
Lag often happens games end too quickly and Nano age isnt done well (all mechs are just changing color a new tank and a new sentinal upgrade)Summary:
I think this is a fun game for people who dont have any games too play you can play offline learn against computer then test your skills online. You can make movies with the trigger system in the scenario editor.
You can pick from around 15 (not sure) civilzations or select custom Civilization. 4 campaigns with intrestingand chalenging scenarios. It is my favorite RTS and there will be an expansion pack soon
Destroy and conquor your oppents as you battle from the stone age to the nano ageThe bad:
In Empire Earth your goal is to smash and destroy your opponets as your go through diffrent ages, inculding the middle ages, the industrial age, WW2, and the nano age.You have many weapons at your dispoal soliders, robots, tanks, cannons, boats, and the mightey atom bomb! You can strike your oppent in many ways, over run his base with gun men, bombard his island with battle ships, launch and air raid, or bomb the living hell out of his base with gotha bombers, b-17s, B-19s,B-122, or anything thing else you can think of. This game has a lot of soliders to chose from inculding nights, swords ...
