"This is the ultimate in historically based RTS's. Trust me, EU is not your typical "build/upgrade units & conquer the world" game. It strives to be as realistic and historically accurate as possible."
"This is the standard game in this branch of the RTS genre. There are about a billion copycats (e.g. Starcraft, C&C, Empire Earth, etc.). If you've played one you've played them all, so just play AoE."
