    Empire Earth contains a lot of content. a little bit too much content for me, with like 24 very similar civs and about 120 optioins to make your own, over 300 units i think, and way too many things to build....not much strategy here, but it looks decent and the campaigns are more fun....the german one was excellent in particular...but i think i would rather play the 4 very different civ Empire Earth contains a lot of content. a little bit too much content for me, with like 24 very similar civs and about 120 optioins to make your own, over 300 units i think, and way too many things to build....not much strategy here, but it looks decent and the campaigns are more fun....the german one was excellent in particular...but i think i would rather play the 4 very different civ world of warcraft 3 or starcraft..which both offered much more strategy. it almost reaches the crown of the next great age of empires type game, but i cant say its that great.

    First there was age of empires then other spin offs such as star wars battlegrounds, this is nothing more than a been there done that revamp on an old game. The unit hit points and damage are far off with little balance. build a cheap as hell wall and it takes a mass amount of firepower to bring it down. 5

    The game is nice. Has excellent graphics, nice audio and it's pretty easy to play. But it's too much. It's like having 5games in one: The "chongo" age- rome - medieval - actual - futurist, and I really only like the 3rd and 5th. It's an unbelievable quantity... to much for me. It doesn't let you make a good strategic plan, specially if you are an "age block" overThe game is nice. Has excellent graphics, nice audio and it's pretty easy to play. But it's too much. It's like having 5games in one: The "chongo" age- rome - medieval - actual - futurist, and I really only like the 3rd and 5th. It's an unbelievable quantity... to much for me. It doesn't let you make a good strategic plan, specially if you are an "age block" over your enemy. Once you learn to use fire weapons before your enemy, it's over, you win. And when you get the robots! Just make a big group of them and you'll win. I liked a lot more the Age of Empires-Age of mythology games. This is just plain fight. Anyways, it's a cool game. It's like an amusement park. You wait a lot, but finally get exitement. That's his game. The campaigns are amazing, specially the german, even if it's in the age I most hate. Oh, almost forget, civilization work is horrible. You have only some different names and some SMALL differences. About civilization work, this is AWFULL. Expand

    While it isn’t perfect, it does offer up one hell of a good time. [Holiday 2001, p.96]

    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.
