Product Description

Build, divide and conquer the world, making your mark on history once again. Relive the complete span of human history. Take control with a breakthrough new interface. Rule as never before!


Prepare to serve up worldwide conquest on an epic scale once again with Empire Earth 2 -- the sequel to Gamespy.com's 2001 "PC Game of the Year," Empire Earth. Become the world's greatest conqueror of all time by creating, building, and forging the grandest of all empires as you progress through 15 epochs that span more than 10,000 years of history.

This sequel introduces new units, powers, and leaders through three expansive campaigns and once again sets the standard for real-time strategy games. Featuring the latest technology that expands both the single-player and multi-player experience -- including an artificial intelligence system that will adapt to your every move -- Empire Earth 2 delivers dynamic challenges that require focused problem-solving. For instance, you will be forced to adapt to ever-changing weather conditions that will impact your civilization's growth and survival. With each new season or ecological cataclysm, you will be forced to make tough decisions and devise new strategies for survival.

A growing civilization demands keen management, and to help you keep a close eye on your operations, Empire Earth 2 is equipped with an advanced Picture-in-Picture (PIP) management system. With it you can control various regions of your civilization simultaneously in real-time. This, along with the brand-new citizen management system and revamped research system, will help alleviate the need for tedious micro-management, especially during the heat of battle.

Once you master the control of your gigantic empire, you'll be ready to engage real-life opponents over a LAN or the Internet. Empire Earth 2 supports nine types of multi-player games. Tournament features include multi-player cooperative scenarios, a new reward system for military, economic, and empire-expanding superiority, and a tactical planning map that helps coordinate efforts with your team and other players. Take your empire building to a new level with multi-player action that demands strategic knowledge and good negotiating skills. With Empire Earth 2, the future of civilization is in your hands.

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Empire Earth 2 (EE2) is a worthy successor to Empire Earth (EE), filling a number of holes and adding massive amounts of content to the original game. The play is frantic and tough and enough content's been added so that you can spend days on a single game. I knock a star off both fun and overall for a combination of things making the game far more complex than it should - including inexcusably skimpy documentation - but this deserves 4/4 stars for fun and playability as a game that can keep you up late, late, late at night.

If you've never played 2001's EE, you should. The concept here is pretty simple. You control a civilization from the stone age through far in the future, but as this is a real-time strategy (RTS) game you can't stop the clock like you do in Civ, meaning you're constantly fighting off opponents along the way. The real issue is why you should buy this over EE. The simplest way I can put it is to compare the original Civilization versus Civilization II, where the two games were both popular but for different reasons. The first one created a genre and became a classic. The second, while not nearly original, fixed holes and added massive layers of complexity to the first game.

Simply put, there's a lot more in EE2 than there was in EE. With 300 differing units (versus 200 in EE), more civs, and any number of new variables ranging from weather to tech advances to temporary bonuses, it means that the old "hold off the barbarians by building Hadrian's Wall until you advance and build 10 leviathans to do a Sherman's March through Georgia" RTS strategy doesn't work here. At higher difficulty levels, the AI has gotten a lot better. As well, civilizations are more balanced.

3.0 out of 5 stars Empire Nations Stew May 7, 2005
Stainless Steel Studios has good timing with games. The first *Empire Earth* crossed my laptop as I was settling into my mobilization for Operation Nobel Eagle. I'd come home from long patrols and unwind with a heaping of world domination. I seemed to have an easier time of it than our current Administration.

Now Mad Doc takes over and returns the series as I am mobilizing against the Real Time Strategy genre. I'm sick of retread RTS games whose publishers promise much, but deliver something too safe. With American culture currently awash in remakes and rehashes, it seems nobody can produce anything fresh or innovative anymore.

*Empire Earth II* doesn't change my perception. But it's as solid an RTS as anybody has managed: being streamlined enough for anybody to get the hang of it, but with enough useful details and tweaks to separate the men from the boys. It also looks and sounds good.

Graphics definitely makes demands of my Radeon 9800 AiW and my 1G of Kingston ECC memory: aside from the great-looking explosions, shrapnel, and dust clouds, EEII suffers from horrendous slow down whenever more than a few units or civilizations exist on the screen. Shutting off the good-looking weather and seasonal effects didn't seem to matter. Audio booms deep, loud, and clear over my home theater system. *EEII* one-ups *Rise of Nations* in audio and video.

*Empire Earth II* plays more like *Rise of Nations* than its own predecessors. However, marketers tried to make *RoN* seem like a real-time *Civilization*, when it was really just another *Starcraft* knock-off. *EEII* at least announces up front, "Hey, I'm an RTS".

So *EEII* falls into the Imperial RTS subgenre with Blizzard mechanics.

3.0 out of 5 stars I really want to like this game... July 8, 2005
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
EEI was probably one of my favorite games of all times. I really wanted EEII to blow me away like the first one did when it came out but the reality is that it just doesn't live up to the hype. Don't get me wrong, it's good but as one other reviewer mentioned, it desperately needs an expansion pack. I'm tired of games being rushed to market so they can get your $50, only to get another $30 from you when they decide to finish the game....but I digress

Here's what I don't like about EEII

1. This game is SLOOOOWWWWWWW. You get a skirmish going with 8 other AI nations and start building some aliances, forget it. I have found that if I break aliances so that you can no longer see their units on the map, the speed increases but that is a horrible work-around to have to use.

2. The tech tree system is flawed. It seems like I don't pay any attention to what I'm researching because your goal becomes crowns, not improvements to units or buildings.

3. peasants are dumb. Nearby buildings being built don't attract idle nearby peasants to help with building etc.

4. Balance of unit strength is not very good. Tanks don't do very much damage and are destroyed too easily for instance. I can beat pretty much any skirmish by building about 7 or 8 hangars and producing helecopters as fast as possible. You get a group of 30 helo's and you can sweep through pretty much any defense in a couple minutes. You don't even have to control them, put the que on auto and send them on search and destroy and they'll scour the map shooting anything they don't like while you sit back and enjoy a doughnut. Way too easy.

5. The previews talked about an amazing AI that would learn your style and counter it. I had way more trouble with AI in EEI.
