    Painful and slow gameplay make it incomprehensible that this game actually came after Age of Empires I. To me it feels like a primitive predecessor of that classic game in every way.

  1. While it isn’t perfect, it does offer up one hell of a good time. [Holiday 2001, p.96]
  2. Empire Earth’s kitchen sink design is too massive (if at time unwieldy) to be darkened by the shadow cast by a dozen games. [Feb 2002, p.94]
  3. It’s enjoyable, but because of the top-heavy resource management it’s easy to feel overwhelmed.
