Product Description

Product Description

Rise & Fall: Civilizations at War is a detailed real-time strategy game that lets players completely command one of the four mightiest empires of the ancient world: Greece, Rome, Egypt, and Persia. Rise & Fall allows players to fight alongside their troops as one of history's eight greatest heroes, and bring victory to their nation on the battlefield.

From the Manufacturer

Alexander. Achilles. Sargon. Nebuchadnezzar. Ramses. Cleopatra. Caesar. As a legendary hero-god of the ancient world, you will command one of the four mightiest empires the world has ever known, building your civilization from the ground up. But as only the best rulers can, you will fight alongside your troops in the revolutionary Hero Command mode, wielding a superhuman combination of leadership and fighting abilities, turning the tide of battle and bringing you eternal fame.

In Rise & Fall, players assume the role of one of history’s greatest heroes and build a civilization from the ground up. Amass enough glory, and Rise & Fall lets the player fight alongside his troops in Hero Command mode, laying waste to carefully prepared enemy plans, formations, and fortifications with an almost supernatural combination of leadership and martial skill.

1.0 out of 5 stars StarForce!!! June 19, 2006
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
This game has StarForce copy protection, which is software that you do NOT want on your computer. Reportedly, it replaces your CD and/or DVD drivers, and often causes extreme hardware and software problems. I've been a victim of the software problems, it basically crippled my very expensive SCSI scanners and it was extremely difficult to figure out what was doing it. It could be the best game that's ever been produced, but anyone who's had the StarForce experience is going to steer clear. I don't know why a company would knowingly try to sell you software that is known to cause so many problems, it's downright malicious.

1.0 out of 5 stars Game Doesn't Run October 28, 2006
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Just got done installing the game, which took about 30 minutes. Running a Pentium D 3.0Ghz, 2GB RAM, Nvidia GeForce 6800 system with Windows Vista and the game doesn't work at all. Tried running in XP compatibility mode. No such luck.

I even had to install their malicious and infamous StarForce Protection Software - for what? Not only does this game not run, it locks up my system. Don't waste your money paying for this garbage. This is the first and last time I'll buy a Midway game. They clearly have no idea what they're doing.

Pros: None

Cons: Doesn't work. Locks up Windows

Starforce is a copy protection program that can harm your computer. It eats up CPU power, and causes slow downs. This cannot be removed. Stay away from this.

4.0 out of 5 stars The game ive been waiting for June 22, 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Ever since the first Total War game came out "Shogun" I have always thought, man it would sure be cool to be able to just zoom down and play as just one of the soldiers on the field instead of always just commanding the whole army.

Dont get me wrong...theres nothing I love more than being able to send whole legions of infantry and cavalry into the fray...and watching them duke it out Braveheart style, ala Rome Total War, but there was always that itch of...oh no my left flank is collapsing, instead of switching a unit from my right side to the left I wish i could just play a single guy in a 3rd person mode to go over and back my men up. And now, we have Rise & Fall which allows you to do exactly that.

Rise & Fall is your basic RTS game where you build structures, gather resources, amass an army and go to town on the enemy.

If you ever played Age of Empire you know what I mean.

By comparison to other RTS games R&F very much in my opinion simplifies the resource gathering system. Instead of having to gather....wood....coal...food...gold...and anywhere up to 6 resources at once just to maintain an army. R&F only makes you gather Gold and Wood which allows you to focus more on building that army up. And in this game it can be a rather decent size army, the population cap is 5000 which is divided between the number of players in the game which is from 2-8

So in a 2 player game it splits to 2500 per player. Which is pretty good for the type of game it is.

So the battles can be huge, and with a newer graphics engine, they look rather cool when they are large, if your rig can run it otherwise youre looking for some graphical slowdown, in that case you can drop the pop cap down to keep the fights smaller.

4.0 out of 5 stars Game play is great, stability is horrible April 1, 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Rise and fall is easily one of the best RTS games I've ever played. It really does a great job of supporting different playing types and feels like they took the best elements from Age of Empires, Warcraft, and Diablo and put them together with many more original ideas.

I always thought it was sort of odd how in every other RTS I'd played, walls were just these barriers erected to block movement, units couldn't stand on them or go over them. In real combat, walls were an impediment, but not a true block. Enemies thew ladders up and scaled the wall while defenders tried to kick the ladders off, they served as a walkway giving archers a high ground advantage, and they served as platforms for anti-ground unit siege equipment. Finally here is a game that gives walls the strategy and respect they're due! That's just one example of how much thought was put into this game as to how ancient wars were really fought.

Hero mode is also lots of fun and makes the hero more than just a super powered unit you have to focus on while using your army. in hero mode, you can issue commands to make the AI follow you, attack with you, etc so you can focus on making the most of the hero instead of frantically toggling between the army and the hero like you have to with Warcraft.

I've had major stability issues with this game, though. No hardware issues, but I seriously question how much this game was tested before going into production. I finally had to turn off my anti-virus protection to get the libraries to actually install properly. I don't install games in the default directory, and after browsing for the right place, the text box to enter in a directory name for the game to be installed in kept comming out of focus every couple seconds.

2.0 out of 5 stars MEDIOCRE RTS - DEFINITELY *NOT* WORTH THE StarForce RISK November 17, 2007
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I knew this one sported StarForce (thanks to Amazon Reviewers with brass ones - and not intimidated by the gaming industry hyenas); yet, I found it in a electronics megamarket bin for $3 and could not resist. (Goes to show what the value of ridiculously "protected" games becomes in less than a year).

StarForce aside (and after subtracting 2 stars for its intrusive risk to our systems), this RTS seems undecided as to what it aimed for.
Trying to combine strategy with action is not new, WARCRAFT 3 (for one) did it much better. You have your hero (Alexander or Cleopatra) and then you build up your army to complete the corresponding campaign.
You build your base and your workers gather wood and gold. When strong enough you go (or get thrown) into battle - to earn the third resource: glory. All three are needed to advance to the next eras.

The graphics can be adequately good if run on high settings; low settings are pretty disappointing. The units are well designed though, and their movements and spilled blood give a realistic taste.

The controls will take you some time to get used to as, not only do they take up quite a chunk of the screen, but are temperamental in responding as well. Selecting units, especially in the heat of the battle, can be tricky too, as more often than not, workers receive by mistake the order to run into the front line and fight hand-to-hand with the armed enemy: an expensive short-lived sight.

The only thing that keeps this game afloat is, well, its naval warfare. Most RTS avoid them as too messy and complicated (haven't seen a solid effort since C&C: RED ALERT 2), however R&F:CaW demonstrates well designed ships, historically (more or less) accurate naval warfare techniques and quite enjoyable animations.

All in all: not a bad game that, unfortunately, is hardly worth the StarForce trouble it brings to our systems.
