  1. A new twist on an old favorite. Its graphical elements are engaging, and the player interface is familiar. This is a solid title.

    There's nothing that can't be fixed by a patch, however. If you are an RTS fan, Empire of the Ants will deliver.
  3. Hardcore RTS fans will be unimpressed with EOTAs strategically-lacking and limited combat, hands-off management, and overall dull brand of gameplay.

    The idea is really great and the gameplay holds glimmers of what could have been. Sadly, it falls a quite a bit short of perfect. The lack of character and sorry graphics slap the game down at the surface and some interface and gameplay ideas wound the title a little deeper.
  5. The lack of stimulating combat or camp building will turn off quite a few others. But hey, the premise is cool.
  6. The game has its moments, but not frequently enough to lift it out of mediocrity. EoA just doesn't do justice to the really unusual and interesting premise.
  7. If you are looking for a playable, original strategy game then you're best off looking elsewhere. And if you want ants, well, just buy an Ant Farm.
