My friend and I are always looking for good RTS's that we can play together. I would like to know if this game has a multiplayer setup where two players can set up as allies (or jointly control one civilization like Rise of Nations) and play against computer controlled enemies (as opposed to real humans).
I ask since most games have multiplayer where each side must have one human player or they have it where all humans cannot be on the same team.
Overall, my friend want to be able to be on the same side and fight against the computer. Is this possible. As an aside, we loved Medieval Total War, but this type of play was not possible in that game.
