  1. The implementation of controllable sea battles and the interactive environments certainly develops the gameplay of the combat RTS sub-genre and it’s sure to be a feature that a certain developer called Creative Assembly will be looking out for.

    The campaign's tedious start is a significant obstacle to gamers who want to "get to the good stuff" without going through the motions of developing a massive resource base and drafting an army from scratch.

    The empire-building gameplay is surprisingly compelling and fast-paced, while the battles themselves give you a taste of, well, glory. Hugo be damned; this empire building is fun stuff.
  4. The campaign mode is good fun for a while, but the unsatisfying battle element will leave strategy buffs begging for more.

    When half a battalion decides to leave your borders undefended while they wage their own private suicide-o-war, it's more than a little galling. [May 2006, p.96]
  6. The graphics are slick and I can tell a lot of historical research went into making this game, but I can’t shake the feeling that the Pyro designers are still using muskets while the competition has moved on to assault rifles.
  7. For if I would not play the game more than ten seconds if I didn’t have to review the game, why would I recommend any voluntarily play this game?

    It's clear that the ratings from the different game sites and magazines (the mass) differ a lot. It's also clear that the user It's clear that the ratings from the different game sites and magazines (the mass) differ a lot. It's also clear that the user ratings are much higher than the mass gives. In the reviews the game is way too much compared with RTW. Many times is being said that this game isn't as good as RTW (graphically and gameplay) so it automatically gets a low grade. First of all, the graphics are much much better than RTW. Lay two screenshots of both games next to eachother, and you have the proof. Secondly, the gameplay the game has has much more potentional than the mass says. At first it might be a bit boring, but later in the game, when you have access to more things to develop and build, you will understand the true power of this game. Also, the mass says the battles are too slow, while the community more complains that they are too fast and wishes this to be fixed in a patch (I myself don't really care.) So it's better to trust the 9+ the users have given. And of course, this game has playable naval battles, which RTW doesn't have. I would give this game 3 points more than RTW, but unfortunatelly you don't go higher than a 10... If you plan to buy the game, but first want to try the demo, take note that Pyro could have done a much better job on the demo, because it's a tenth as good as the full game!! Expand

    Campaign: 10/10

    Real-time battles are nothing out of the ordinary, but the campaign mode is very addicting. Don't let the lack of nations
    Campaign: 10/10

    Real-time battles are nothing out of the ordinary, but the campaign mode is very addicting. Don't let the lack of nations scare you, there are dozens of ways to beat the campaign.

    Ano, you talk like you work on Eidos or Pyro. You talk like a member of the development team.
