Downloaded this game because it was on sale and it did not disappoint. Great story line, involved kingdom building (pay attention to the climate you are in!!), and good real time battle elements. Great game all around, if you like empire building games and/or RTS, you will not be disappointed with this one.

This is a game I purchased on sale not expecting to love it. The levels were difficult enough at the end that it took me several tries to beat them, but I was determined to do it right and succeed. I would even replay this game from the beginning after a rest period, it was pretty well done. There are so many empire building games this can get lost in the shuffle but it is well worth the $5 sale price.

I feel cheated by Amazon on this. The product listing clearly stated that this game is compatible with Windows 7, but the product literature (and game producer) confirm this is not the case. A work around might be possible, but I would not have purchased the software if I had understood that it wouldn't work for me.

Caveat Emptor. I will be wary about buying downloaded games from Amazon in the future.

This is one of my favorite games. Lots of gameplay value for the money. If you like RTS games with a sense of humor and a little challenge, this is a good choice. You can play the different missions with different heroes - some heroes are better for some missions than others.

I've played it on different platforms including Windows 7 so I don't understand why other users are having problems. I use the CD version and not the download but I don't know why that would make a difference.

The Settlers: Rise of an Empire Gold Edition is a fantastic game with heroes to play with, enemies to defeat, and most of all glorious cities to build and develop.

The mechanics are well done and so are the graphics. They have a very pleasant feel to them.

I recommend this game for its overall creativity and fun.

This game was fun- I'm not exactly sure what was fun about it. It actually kind of reminds me of Kingdom for Keflings. You help develop a city by putting down buildings that lead to other resources which lead to other buildings. You get more population by placing these buildings and they eat some of your resources. Eventually you get promoted by having a certain number of resources and can build a military. Then you go off and fight a battle. The battle wont be particular engaging, it's just about telling a few "units" to attack something, which they do automatically until it's done. It's not challenging at all, unfortunately and no strategy is required. Sure, you could make extra fun in it by trying to reduce your time spent finishing a level, but that's not the kind of gamer I am personally.

Somewhere about halfway through the game I realized I was wasting my time, but it was still fun getting there :)

I've been playing the online version of this game for a while now before I found it was first a stand-alone game. I've been enjoying this version much more.
