Spanning across the epochs of mankind's history, Empire Earth is an encompassing, deep real-time strategy game similar in style to Age of Empires. Ranging from the very dawn of civilisation with the discovery of fire to the penultimate achievements of mankind's futuristic nanoage, players have all of the resources of the era at their disposal, from the club-wielding cavemen of prehistoric society, to atomic bomb-laden B52 planes of the Atomic Age. Featuring a robust campaign editor, and random scenario generator, Empire Earth is both a technologically-sound and enjoyable game.
This RTS game is simply amazing and unique in it's own way.
- Custom civilizations, you can have your civ an economic one or warmongers or both if you spend your civ points wisely! (15% resource gathering, 20% tank armor etc.)
- 15 epochs, fight all the way from the lower Paleolithic Age to Space Age! (Don't need to worry, before you start a game you can select starting age and ending age.)
- Wonder Buildings, they are very expensive to build but they bestow you abilities that can turn the tide of battle! For example, the Library of Alexandria wonder reveals enemy buildings. (Once you build enough Wonders, you will automatically win in 30 minutes, but Wonder victories can be turned off.)
- Custom map/Scenario editor, cinematic scenery and stuff. You can learn these within like a week.
This was my first war game on the PC. There's just so much one can do in this game, an entire world is at your fingertips. Tons of missions and unlimited possibilities with map generation to keep all paths new in combat, many units, great quotes (the one I'll remember the most is "Attack with sharpened steel!") and so much other good features. I've played this since around 2002-2003 and I'm of course still enjoying it! Modding capability is pretty good, you can change all sounds, text and textures though you cannot edit models. But there are HUNDREDS of MISSIONS, CAMPAIGNS, TEXTURES and SO MUCH MORE to download from great community members, you can make more yourself! I could go on for hours with this review but I don't want to waste my time with it as I'm too busy playing Empire Earth. Oh, and also its expansion Art of Conquest of course.
Un RTS que va desde la edad de piedra hasta el futuro, pasando por todas las etapas de la humanidad? El tipico yanquie diria "are you insane!?". Pero la verdad, es que eso es y caracteriza a toda la franquicia de EE.
Con una jugabilidad parecida a la de Age of Empires, con ciertos agregados, Empire Earth sumerge al jugador en una experiencia totalmente nueva: la de ver crecer a tu pequeña aldea de cavernicolas a una inmensa ciudad futurista con robots y cyborgs.
La graficas estan muy buenas para la epoca en que salio el juego, eso, y ademas de una serie de campañas con un argumento muy bueno y entretenido.
Altamente recomendado para los amantes de los RTS como yo ;)
The best RTS game I've ever played! Graphics aren't too great, but the gameplay is epic! A perfect scenario editor lets you create your own missions and stories. There are four vanilla campaigns too, plus skirmish games against AI, LAN and online gameplay. I've spent many enjoyable hours playing this game, it's fantastic!
