5.0 out of 5 stars Really quite good, rich and beautiful. May 30, 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've never played Rise of Nations, so I can only judge this against other RTS games I've played.

This one rocks. The AI is leagues above almost anything else I've seen -- I never end up with units just wandering aimlessly in a corner because it couldn't path around a tree.

The visuals are amazing -- my base down in a valley gets obscured by mist when I go up a hill to move troops. The detail in the units and buildings is AMAZING. I've not seen anything come close in another real time strategy.

The diversity of units is great as well - I get a sense of three distinct cultures and approaches, but it still feels well-balanced between the sides. I also appreciate that in the campaign, there are necessary solutions beyond the usual "build a big army and throw it at them" strategy most other games employ.

The UI was easy to learn - perhaps again because I never played the original Rise of Nations?

I don't know how this compares to the very acclaimed Empire Earth and Total War series, but this is definitely in-line with the great games like Warcraft/Starcraft, Age of 'x' series and Command and Conquer.

I needed a diversion from my WoW gaming, and this is it. My poor guildmates might miss me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Inspired - and largely overlooked - achievement October 6, 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is an edit of my original review, which I posted soon after acquiring the game. Since then, I've edged a fair way into the campaign and played numerous "quick battles".

What's been said about the campaign is mostly true - it's neither polished nor very appealing. To be sure, there are some good strong characters, but they are not fleshed out very well, and the story feels overall quite by-the-books and predictable.

Not so the world behind the game, though. It takes a lot for an RTS setting to come alive, which has put me off from them somewhat. But Rise of Legends rises to the challenge, with three very distinct cultures, each of which has a well-developed internal realism. The steam and clockwork of the Vinci feels worlds apart from the more traditional eastern-based magic of the Alin, and the strange Mayan-style of the Cuotl is rarely portrayed in recent video games. Along with these are excellent game mechanics, oriented for those who prefer combat to endless nation-building and running after resources. National borders appear as colored lines on the minimap, soldiers take attrition damage when traveling through hostile territory, and the capitol city is one's prime target. Added to this, the units are quite diverse and complex; even basic soldiers have multiple combat styles/abilities, and the many heroes available are powerful and help your nation in various ways. Each culture can obtain a master unit, which is an alternate way of achieving victory - save enough for a master unit, then, if you use it wisely, your game is won. This is often more enjoyable than simply sending hordes of lesser warriors into enemy territory.

2.0 out of 5 stars Underwhelming June 5, 2006
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I've been a long-time RTS player and can honestly say that I've been around the block a few times when it comes to the genre. When "Rise of Nations" came out, particularly when they added the "Thrones and Patriots" expansion, I thought I'd found one of the best all-around RTS games. The gameplay was smooth and continually interesting. The economy and research behaved in the way that seemed intuitive, and best of all, it had a fantastic Conquer the World aspect that allowed you to engage in the act that fuels the dreams of every RTS fan alive: to unite the entire world under your banner. I probably invested hundreds and hundreds of hours playing the conquer the world game.

When I heard that the same company that created such a fantastic game were creating another title that was hyped as the next step up from Rise of Nations, I was ecstatic. I waited for a year, visiting the official website religiously for screenshots and gaming articles. I purchased the game a few days ago and can sum it up in one word: uninspired.

I'll leave discussions of graphics and sound to other players, but the gameplay is somewhat tepid. Instead of Rise of Nations many different resources, RoL has narrowed the resource count to two, making me wonder whether I was playing a game from 2006, or whether I'd warped back in time to my old Starcraft days. Instead of being able to place fortresses and cities to expand my national borders, I am forced to capture neutral cities at predetermined locations. Instead of an engaging Conquer the World game where I could march numerous armies across the globe, crushing enemies, forging alliances, and betraying old friends, I found a lukewarm single-player campaign with undeniably limited replay value.

5.0 out of 5 stars great game, can get a little challenging January 12, 2007
A Kid's Review
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I extremely enjoyed this game and I think anyone reading this will too. the graphics are incredible, you can see every detail. i am a great lover of fantasy games and have every game from starcraft to star wars. When this came out I needed to see what it was like and now I can't stop playing it. The chalenges on campaign mode are tough even on easy, but they are fun. I love the creatures in the game and how they look on the computer. I enjoy playing this game and using all of the 3 civilizations. I definatly reccomend this game!
