    Completely unrealistic. This game has a ww2 missile (v-2 rocket) do more damage than a atomic bomb

    Completely unrealistic. This game has a ww2 missile (v-2 rocket) do more damage than a atomic bomb. That and a v-2 rocket can be shot down even though it should travel faster than sound. Also in... Read Full Review

    Average, very average. Played this game right after i finished Rome:Total war (now thats a fantastic game)

    Maybe that was Empires: Dawn of the Modern World downfall because i decided to play it right after playing a truly magnificent game as Rome:total war is. Or maybe the fact i played this game three years after it was fir... Read Full Review

    Thoughts On -- Gameplay. Instantly i knew this game was a classic, i can't quite define what makes it like that for me, seeing as i am a big fan of the RTS genre with many games from it, this one just seemed fantastic. ... Read Full Review

    Just another Empire Earth clone.

    I'm not sure what everyones big deal is about this game. Sure there are some new features like China's mobile base structures but that's the only real innovative thing about this game. After I beat just the first missi... Read Full Review

    Empires: DotMW is my favorite strategy game ever made.

    Good: This game sports so many weapons and characters; you can choose your own map, out of quite a few, to play on; Many countries to select that go from the Medieval age all the way through to World War II; Countries ev... Read Full Review

    Very good game, just that no one plays because of poor marketing.

    pretty in all areas except the sound. There were some balancing issues but it gets fixed by patches. Sadly, company abandoned this game because there weren't enough buyers.... I've had some great times online playing ... Read Full Review

    Last good RTS.

    If you like games like AoE, EE (not EE2), or RoN, you will love Empires. I for one can't believe that they did not keep working on it as in an xpac. The gameplay for the game is great. It isn't too hard, but it isn'... Read Full Review
