    EMPIRES: DotMW is in many ways a sequel to Empire Earth. Many of the concepts are the same, and the interface is very similar. The resource model has been simplified with the elimination of Iron as a resource, as well... Read Full Review

    Empires is easily the greatest RTS currently on the market.

    Gameplay - Empires sports an immersive, yet almost "old school" style of gameplay. It's new features a groundbreaking and it's old ones are very well implemented. The only thing that detracts from this category is the de... Read Full Review

    I’m a fairly picky gamer. The average game I play has to be really good, or, simply put, I won’t play it. Frankly speaking, a game has to have a good feel or it simply doesn’t captivate me. I’ve been a huge fan of th... Read Full Review

    Good Game - Difficult 3D World to Live With

    Pretty good game play, but I honestly believe that the developer has gone overboard with the 3D game world. I just find that the acute viewing angles make the game difficult to really enjoy! Other than that, the game ... Read Full Review

    This game is cool

    Gameplay10/10 NO way! It's finally been done. A R.T.S. game with almost no troop limit. a 256,000 troop limit(have a fast cpu). This is my kind of game. If your enemy has fifty gunners attack them with 2,000 knights and... Read Full Review

    Empires: Dawn of the modern world

    I believe that this is a really good game. The game combines strategy with planning and role playing. Your are the dictator, chose how you will use your resources at hand. You could be defensive like the French and build... Read Full Review
