  1. It adds so many little things that it will be worth the players hard earned cash. The Space Epoch itself is worth the price of it.
  2. 88
    Provides a number of strong enhancements to a game that already offers immeasurably high replay value.
  3. Rather than simply adding three new campaigns and 18 additional scenarios, new civilization powers for all 23 cultures, from Ancient Greece's flaming arrows to Rebel Forces' cloaking, bring new excitement to many epochs with some interesting changes or enhancements to gameplay.
  4. 78
    Rather than being a full-fledged expansion, this one seems like little more than a mission pack with a few extra novelties thrown in to sweeten the deal.
  5. If you’re an Empire Earth addict, The Art of Conquest might be useful just for spicing up multiplayer games.
  6. If you are an Empire Earth fan, then you'll more than likely enjoy this expansion and appreciate the gameplay provided by the new campaigns.
  7. AoC doesn’t exactly bring any shame or disgrace to Empire Earth (EE), but it doesn’t do anything to make itself a must have for EE fans. That being said, most EE fans will like what AoC has to offer.
  8. This disappointing addition to Stainless Steel Studios' everything-and-the-kitchen-sink real-time strategy game doesn't do much to justify its steep $30 price tag.
  9. One of the most discouraging facts about this expansion pack is that the AI still wasn't tweaked properly. No matter how you adjust your unit's behavior, they still act aggressively; blindly rushing forth to battle and disregarding the orders they've been given.
  10. You're left with the feeling that someone decided that an add-on was a good way to get you to pay more for "Empire Earth"'s bounteous content overflow. [Holiday 2002, p.102]
  11. With the exception of new culture specific powers that are only available in multiplayer gaming, there is nothing in EEAC that enhances the gameplay experience or adds to what is available from the core Empire Earth game.
  12. 40
    The textures are model, character models are laughable up-close, and the game has a toylike look that doesn't really pay homage to the historical backdrop.
  13. A huge letdown that only the most hardcore Empire Earth fan might enjoy. [Jan 2003, p.125]

    Nothing new.Perhaps that are small improvements,ex:citzien becomes robots miners gather ores like in Starcraft.It seemed ridiculous that the water was replaced with space.
    Campaigns are boring again.
    In the Space Age, you feel like playing a game of Star Wars.
