  1. A few years ago, Empire Earth II might have made the cut for fresh and innovative gameplay. Sadly, today it's simply a retread--and a poorly executed, tedious one at that.
  2. Games like this are the reason micromanagement is a four-letter word. [July 2005, p.57]

    I do especially like dropping nukes and other various bombs on fledgling civilizations, but there isn't that much strategy required. Build a bunch of units and charge. That's about it. However, it is very fun if you just want to blow up stuff on a massive scale. Full Review »

    Major step down from the original Empire Earth. Big disappointment.

    This game is much easier than its predecessor. Its game play is only but a fraction of the time as EE was. Despite all of the new buildings and epochs, there seems to be less to choose from once you make your initial choice of a race. Furthermore, awesome graphics do not insure an awesome game, when will designers realize this. Full Review »
