  1. We've played "Age of Empires," and America, you are no "Age of Empires."
  2. Unfortunately, American doesn't offer much in the way of multi-player. While there are 20 multi-player maps available with the package, skirmishes are limited to LAN play only.
  3. A cookie-cutter "Age of Empires" clone...delivers a dose of good, old-fashioned fun.
  4. America had the potential here for a great game, but that limited multiplayer and weak AI really is a let down.
  5. Everything it has to offer has been seen many times before in older RTS games. Old-fashioned gamelpay, lackluster AI, and obsolete graphics with a huge resemblance to the good old AOE are the main downsides to this title. Really not enough to make me ever want to load up America again.

    The stories, on the other hand, are so boring and unconnected that they must have been based on historical facts that have long since been forgotten, except in some German children's textbook.
  7. Has all the trappings of a good game: its setting is unique (there are far too few games set in the old west), and it copies a highly successful formula all the while adding enough flavor to separate itself as a distinct product. But limited game options coupled with bonehead AI make a recipe for disaster in the crowded market of the real time strategy game.

    Everybody loves America! Uh, okay, not everybody. But I like the American theme. It feels like a good copy and expansion pack for Age of Everybody loves America! Uh, okay, not everybody. But I like the American theme. It feels like a good copy and expansion pack for Age of Empires II. If you like that type of game and want to try Native American, American, Outlaw and Mexican civilizations, get this game now! It is much better than the "50" average score and probably very cheap now because of all of the negative reviews!! Full Review »

    "Been there, done that." Not a "must-have" game, but it's not bad, either. It does look a lot like Age of Kings.
