5.0 out of 5 stars Smooth as silk to run August 20, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I agree with the other two reviewers that this is a fascinating game with excellent replay value. I tend to prefer turn-based strategy games. However, simple keystrokes can speed the game up, slow it down, or pause. Believe me, if you're caught in a three-front war on various small continents with lots of naval action as well, you'll appreciate the ability to pause frequently, even with the slowest speed selected.

Game programs have always "pushed the envelope" of whatever computer power and technology existed at the time of their release, mostly for the sake of graphics and other relatively frivolous reasons. They are therefore often ill-behaved, unreliable, plagued with bugs, and liable to become totally unusable when a later operating system comes along with little tolerance for older software that doesn't play by the rules. In this context, it is a relief to find a game that runs so smoothly as Rise of Nations, and never crashes. Perhaps its Microsoft imprimatur means that the authors have an unusually thorough understanding of Windows.

My only criticism is that, when saving games, it writes a large number of files in various directories all over the C: drive and provides no way to delete them. If your disk space is not infinite, be cautious.

4.0 out of 5 stars Old but still good. January 7, 2010
By ~KG~
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
For $10 this deal is a pretty nice buy. I bought it and had a couple of friends pick it up to play over Lan/IP. I currently run a Windows XP Pro, and Vista PC's. WinXPPro had no issues at all with installing or updating this game, and plays very well. Windows Vista however does NOT like the Updater for this game, and as such, will not let you update to the latest version which fixes some online Multiplayer issues. HOWEVER, Copying the game files from an updated Windows XP PC will fix this problem. If you Try to update using vista, the entire game gets corrupted and has to be reinstalled(Vicious cycle anyone?), I have tried troubleshooting this by running in XP mode on vista, and running as administrator, even reading the Troubleshooting guide on the forums, but nothing seems to work, only copying the files from XP did the trick. Also, the game included on this disc(if the same as mine) is v1.3, which fixed issues from the initial release of this title, however the last update was v1.4., to which there is no manual patch, you must patch the game through the Updater in game(LAME yes I know.). However if you dont care to play online then there is nothing wrong with v1.3, as it runs flawlessly on any highend PC. However to play online your game must be updated to v1.4. All in all this title sports decent graphics, and has a pretty good AI, some of the Maps are HUGE, and the different civilizations you can choose from is a pretty long list each with a different set of cool bonuses. Hope my review helps you like it might have helped me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Old, but still fun April 9, 2009

Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I got this game along with some friends, and then played online multiplayer. I'm not normally an RTS fan, but I found this game fun, at least with friends. It's old, and friendly on the hardware, but is still entertaining. The basic premise of each match is to progress from the Stone Age to modern times and beyond. The progression keeps things interesting in multiplayer, and in singleplayer, the game introduces enough variations on this formula to keep things from getting too repetitive. I don't play many real-time strategy games, but this one is easy to get into without limiting more experienced players.
If you are looking for a fun distraction, pick this up. It's only $10.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for windows 8 June 17, 2014
By Zeeke
Verified Purchase
I purchased this primarily to use on my new desktop computer but after several reloads and tries finally came to the conclusion that it doesn't work on windows 8. Seems that if windows 8 is being sold my microsoft and Rise of Nations is also being sold by Microsoft they should be compatible. Ended up loading it on my antique Vista laptop which isn't much fun since it's harder to see and that old laptop is slower than molasses.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best strategy game out there. February 15, 2014
Verified Purchase
This game is amazing. Not only does it accurately represent the passing of the all the ages, it does a awesome job doing it. You get jets, aircraft carriers, insanely huge armies (the biggest I've ever seen), and enough tech to make you forget about it for awhile.

When the game got here, I easily found the product code, which worked fine, and installation was fast and easy.

The only problem I found was that there are some graphical errors that can't be fixed be any means I've tried (restarting the game, messing with video settings on both the games and my monitor, restarting my computer) except for simply extending your resource bar until is shows only resource amount and resource cap. The glitches were completely corrected when I did this, and nothing bad has happened since.

1.0 out of 5 stars disappointed :(
Used to love the game, was excited to play it again but this won't load on my computer. It fits the requirements so I'm not sure what the reason is.

My 13 year old and my 7 year old both play this game. They spend lots of time on it, sometimes they even sit together and play which is rare because of their age difference. Read more
