3-0 out of 5 stars Good, but not great.
I've played all the Civ's and really looked forward to this one.But in my opinion, it does not offer a lot of improvement in gameplay/gamefun.The graphics are better than ever and the in-game map editor is a welcome addition.So much for the good news.Frankly, I like good graphics, but it's the -game- I'm interested in.I find the tech tree too long andneedlessly complex.The number of combt units seems excessive and you really have to advance pretty far to get to the good ones; the advance from one unit to the next higher one gives you a marginal increase, at best.After a while, I found myself wondering "what's the point?"City management is best done using the AI, otherwise it's too troublesome - unless you really like micro-management.The editor in Civ 3, while limited in some ways, seemed (to me) easier to figure out than the edit functions available with Civ 4 (except for, as noted, the in-game map editor function).Never could figure out how to edit individual Civ4 units.
1-0 out of 5 stars Catastrophic Failure
I installed this game with no problems.Then I tried to run it.No good.So I uninstalled it.It took me about 20 tries for the game to install properly again, each time getting a "Catastrophic Failure" error message.Then I tried to run it.No good.
5-0 out of 5 stars Sid's Civ keeps getting better and better
Pros: Each sequel keeps getting better and better. This Civ has added religion to the gameplay, which can make or destroy relationships with your neighbors - staying true to history with leaders disagreeing with neighboring countries religions. The options are almost unlimited, so each scenario you play feels like a whole new game. You can play quick games or "epic" games, there are tons of options for your terraforming, overall the game is perfect.

2-0 out of 5 stars Gouge me some more....I like it
First, let's establish one thing here. There is nothing in this expansion pack that shouldn't have been included in the original game. The only reason why I bought it, is because I am drawn to real-time and turn based strategy games like a fly to a bug zapper.
5-0 out of 5 stars First Expansion pack for the Long Awaited Sequel
This expansion pack has made Civilization IV much much better...although it would have been nice if these features came with the original game ....it has greatly increased the fun factor of this game...atleast for another 6 months...there is word on a second expansion pack suppose to go a completely opposite direction of this one...I do kind off wish they made something other than the war aspect in this one...but I guess the second will be so much better now...give it a good balance...I like the fact that they included online part (pit boss) in this one...I wish they had more civs for this one...plus in a way if you wait until the second expansion everything in this expansion will be included..so its kindaa waste...but if u cant wait until then and if you area civ finatic like me..then you should get this one.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent expansion
Long term civ fans may groan when an expansion appears, offerings to previous games in the series having offered little in the way of interesting play, but merely offered a few ornements like a new civ or some new units.Not so with Civ 4: Warlords.Of course this offers the usual, a few new civs like Koreans, Vikings, Carthanaginians, and the return of the old favorite Zulus, but that is what makes this a worthwhile expnasion.On the side of the mundane and worthwhile, the game now does things like dispalys the odds for each encounter when you attack, a useful addition to learning players.Of strategic interest the game gives each civ a unique building, really a variant on a pre-existing structure, but a wrinkle that will give players some food for thought.

5-0 out of 5 stars Addictive
This game is addictive on the online game space.The campaign play is okay.But everyone knows you can beat the regular games with ease.But when you play online, definitely definitely a big big winner!Lots of strategies, lots of options.
2-0 out of 5 stars They ruined the Age of Empires reputation with this.
I played the original Age of Empires, both I and II, and their expansions, and for the time they were released, they were the best thing out, easily. For their time they were innovative, and brought new ideas, graphics and notions to the RTSs. However, this game does little that is innovative, and almost nothing that has not, by this time, been done in almost any other RTS. This game offers nothing new to the market.
5-0 out of 5 stars It's kinda like crack
This is not a perfect game. It is unbalanced and at times over reliant on youu being able to micro the hell out of your villagers rather than creating any viable military strategies. Yet, for a period of about 2 months I did nothing but play this game. I would play alone. I would play with my roomates, then alone again. Once one of my roomates was bitter when I played alone, after saying earlier that I would play with him. It was collective addiction. All of us were addicted and obbsessed with the game. We would play till the early morning and also between classes, when we had 20 minutes or so to spare. This game consumed our lives and a soundtrack of power metal and elegies to the greatness of this game filled the air. We would speak of the intensity of addiction. We would mention all of the times that we thought about the game in the least opportune moments. I would lie to my girlfriend that I had essays to write in order to get another few hours to play the game. In fact, I would sneak out of her room at 12 in order to play the game till 4 or 5 in the morning.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good first version
The game play is pretty good. The graphics are workable. It is a little too easy on the easy level. It does well accessing the Star Wars world.

5-0 out of 5 stars Empire at War
The graphics leave a little to be desired, but overall the game is fun to play.My kids really get into the battles.

4-0 out of 5 stars This game is fun, but still has severe bugs after 5 patches.
I love the graphics and gameplay in Star Wars, Empire at War.The space battles are geat and there is plenty of strategy.Beware, however, that this game has SEVERE bugs.It will crash randomly to the dektop, and freeze to make you restart your computer.You may not be able to complete the campaign because of the bugs and glitches.This already has 5 patches, but they only introduce new issues.BUT, this game is still worth it in my opinion, because it is so fun and strategic.You will have to make that decision for yourself. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars 75 out of a 100 Due to mechanicle and AI flaws.
To begin with, this game has some excellent potential which the right patches could easily fix. The first is the AI, both friendly and hostile. First off the AI is much too hard on easy settings. For instance, even on Medium, it is quite possible to get swarmed by the AI five minutes into the game. Seriously, as the Goblins for instance, by the time I got a single Cave, and Mine up and running, with two groups built, I find myself fighting off six to seven groups of enemies, who are followed by back up.
4-0 out of 5 stars crazy sweet game
This game rocks! It's got some major pros but it also has a small amount of cons. I'm a big fan of RTS games, like the age of empires series. This game has all the awsome traits of most great RTS games, but it adds a whole other level of gameplay from the lord of the rings additions. It has all the major factions, men, elves, dwarves, mordor, isengard, and the goblins. The men are basically rohan and gondor combined. i havent played as them other than the tutoriul so i dont know a lot about them. the elves rock out loud as archers (plus they have ents) and they have fair swordsman. the dwarves are definitly close range and seige,they dont even have calvary.
4-0 out of 5 stars pretty good game really
the bad. the races are so unmatched!the dwarfs have these catupults that kill all, the goblins can climb over walls(elimanating the point of having them)and the ura kai kill anything in there path (with the exception of horseman) and if the battle is even (1 v 1) the one with the better race wins with the exceptions of castles.now it is pretty fair in the natoriusly short campaine.but in skirmish mode its only fair if its plains and your the same race, or if the weak race starts in a castle.the good.the game is very realistic such as if horse man go up against pikeman head on there doomed but if they go to the side before the pikeman can turn, the pikeman are as good as gone

In late 2002, I took a second job at a major electronics retailer and decided to use my employee discount on what looked like a cool game: Civilization III.That game changed my life... in the gaming sense.It was everything I ever thought a computer game should be: turn-based strategy with multiple avenues to test my ego and self-promoted genius.Above all features of Civ3, however, my most favorite was the customization of the game through the map editor and the wonderful online resources of the Civ community.(I've downloaded more Civ3 files than MP3s.)This allowed me to express my self-proclaimed genius with new rules, technologies, and units (and all the accompanying chronologies and requisites) at my discretion.Nothing could get any better, I had thought.

In 1995, a young game studio named Westwood released one of the first real-time strategy games.

5-0 out of 5 stars Lots of Fun (Not great support from EA though)
One big thing to note...this package says PC/DVD on the cover, so if your pc has an older CD drive only (as ours does) you will not be able to load it on your machine.We had to put it on a different machine.
5-0 out of 5 stars Deja vu all over
I installed and started C&C: Tiberian Dawn and I immediately went back to the year 1996 when the music "Act on Instinct" played.
3-0 out of 5 stars Not worth the 40 plus price
I guess if you played the who series of Command and Conquer games from the beginning then it may be worth getting the game for sentimental reasons...but otherwise it is not worth spending this much for a game, when all that is good is the last game in the series.Its fun, a good waste of time but nothing special. ...

Excellent Game. The graphics are very well done, and the gameplay balance is exceptional. These guys from EA really, knew what they were doing, making a military game so well done.

Totally awesome! I've gotten so good at this game that I totally know that if I'd been with Publius Quinctilius Varus when he was messing around in that forest, he'd be going, like, "Dude - thanks for saving my, like, butticus!" And then his boss, Augustus, would have been totally saying, like, "Dude, Varus - where is my reefer?"

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Game - Campaign is a bit long
Overall, Rome Total War rocks. I'm a big Civ fan but I also like to play Warcraft. Rome Total War combines these well. The only negative is the campaign game takes a really long time (30+ hours) to play.

5-0 out of 5 stars Silence is Golden
I have windows XP and I had no problem installing this game or running it.The graphics are stunning and the way you can move around with the camera is a lot of fun.For example, you can follow a sinking ship-underwater- until it disappears into the murky depths.But you still hear it long after you can't see it.I especially enjoyed the cameras on the torpedoes.This version seems to be more realistic than Silent Hunter 2 with the success rate of torpedos exploding.You shoot too close or at a bad angle and you don't score.My only minor complaint is that you can't create a mission like you could in 2.In two, I especially liked going headon with a convoy and singling out the destroyers. And getting them before they got me.

1-0 out of 5 stars Use Caution to insure it is compatible with your hardware
Not mentioned here but only on the Installation Instructions is that this game will ONLY run on
4-0 out of 5 stars Great gameplay, poor documentation
This game really deserves a 5 but lack of documentation and some clunky user interfaces makes it fall short.The gameplay and graphics are quite well done and make this a great addition to any naval gamers collection.You will be left having to figure some things out for yourself as the documentation merely hints at some fo the features in the game but after a little bit of playing around you will discover these.Most are in the "on base" portion of the game and therefore don't distract from the actual gameplay itself.

3-0 out of 5 stars Its still fun
I liked this expansion to the original DOW.It was more of the same and since I liked the original game I knew I would like this expansion.I felt it was overpriced for an expansion pack that was on the short side for the single player campaign.Some of the criticism I see here on the Amazon page is justified.I felt the story was well thought out and the voices were beliveable. The graphics and sound were the same as DOW.I saw where some one said the Imperial Guard should have AT weapons, they do its the rocket launchers.It is true the scenarios feel a bit rushed, as if you do not have enough time to really think about your strategy.The problems is I think that is a fair criticism of all RTS games.Once again when installing the game the software secretly tells my firewall to let the game phone home, a very annoying feature.

1-0 out of 5 stars A distinct disappointment
Pros:
2-0 out of 5 stars awful campaign mode
Why does relic spend so much effort and money developing such a sophisticated and exciting RTS platform and then give it a campaign mode that is just a confusing goatf$#k of massed enemies and nonsensical storylines?The game was designed to reward subtly matching unit types to enemy strategies, but the campaign mode is just a wave after wave of mixed units that must be endured with no time or even need to plan a defense.I feel like I've been given a set of surgical tools and then told I have 10 minutes to cut dow a tree with them; the sophistication of the tools makes the brutish nature of the task all the more frustrating.Bad, bad job relic. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Kinda old, but still really good
Age of empires II is a really fun game. Sometimes when I feel really small or I'm in one of those moods where I just want to kill someone, I play this and it makes me feel better. You start as a tiny little settlement with only a few villagers. Over time you build an army, get new technologies, and fight other civilizations to make your empire rule over all others!

5-0 out of 5 stars Absolutely AWESOME!!!
I got this as a last-day-of-summer-school gift, and it is just so amazing! You make an army, grow resources, worship a god, pretect your city, make allies and enemies, etc. This is so amazing, the only thing you'll regret related to this is not getting it!

Having played the original Age of Empires for years, this game was a little hard to understand in the beginning.I wish the book had contained more explanatory information.However, once figured out, it is quite a good game.

5-0 out of 5 stars I love it
I keep coming back to this game. I love the challenge of building the city, and the battles aren't bad now I've figured out the strategy involved. ;)
5-0 out of 5 stars Caeser's Legon
I think Caeser 3 is a great strategy game that is fun and challenging. I'd have to say that Caeser 3 is a great war game if you chose to play on a not so peacful province. But even with a peacful province you can still have fun by trying to get a lot of people and other things. I like personally building up your city until the whole map is full then I build another city.Like I said before this is also a great war game, you can have up to 96 soldiers in your army. You can have 6 forts 16 men in a fort, but not only that you can have different soldiers such as Mounted on horses, Javilen with javilen, and Legonaries with sords and shields. If you train your army then you will domenate the battle fields. You can fight Caeser's army made up of blue Legonaries, also a lot more that you can check out. But my personal favorite are the barrbarions that come on some missions.
5-0 out of 5 stars great game
I still go back to this game and play it every once in a while. it is one of the best games I ever played. I wish they would re-make it with modern graphics.

4-0 out of 5 stars The RTS "artform" gains momentum
First off, a caveat; I just bought this game a couple of days ago, and so far have only played around five hours. So, rather than wait a goodly while until I am able to finish the single player campaign (my gaming time is limited), I'll write of my first impressions and the general feeling I am getting.
4-0 out of 5 stars Very Nice Game Marred by Online Competition Phantoms
I first downloaded the trial edition of this sequel, "Rise of Nations: Rise of Legends."I recommend the trial edition to everyone who enjoys fantasy toys and games.The trial edition is phenomenal, and it costs nothing to download but a little time.It lets people play against the computer/artificial intelligence players, which are very competitive with a lot of level settings, to make the educational part bearable.Even if I hadn't bought this game, I'm still glad I downloaded and played the free trial edition.It made me want to keep playing the game.It just did the right things.It did things so well, it aroused my curiosity to buy the game.So, I bought the game.I like it, a lot.It's so cool.I don't want to spoil the game, but it has cool-looking dragons.Before going online with the game, I wanted to make sure I wasn't going to get wiped out right away, so I practiced, practiced, and practiced until I could beat the A.I. players (the "artificial intelligence" players) on the hardest setting, alas not every time.My point is that I got pretty good.Well, I then went online.Needless to say, I still got my butt kicked pretty good.However, now I've played human opponents many times and I have over 2000 experience points, altogether.That means I'm not the best, but I'm worth playing even if my opponent is very good.Now I'm on level five for 1-on-1 play, and level eight for multi-player.My win ratio is over 30%.Setting aside my laurels for a moment, the problem with all of this almost-too-good-to-be-true thing is I still play guys who LIE ABOUT THEIR LEVELS.I'll open up for a match by looking at the statistics of my opponents.I've played quite a few "beginners" at level one, a few of them with "zero experience points," yet how can I lose to them?Is it their first time playing?I have experience.I know what I'm doing.Some guy logs in for the "first time" and beats a somewhat experienced intermediate like me?Impossible; or, at least, the odds of that happening are less than two percent possible.So, why, then, does this happen regularly?I just imagined an explanation: people lie.MicroSoft, the distributor of this game, can show people why they should buy this game, they run an online mode, but they don't really do enough to stop cheaters who fake new identities.Maybe this is okay to MicroSoft.It's not, however, acceptable to me.But, what can I do?Complain.Well, that is what I do.What is the point of character statistics that are used to pair fitting players against each other, if it's actually not going to be fitting?When a player gets good, he runs out of people who would be a fair match for him.Multiple identities ought to be barred.Unlike other online computer games, this game has about 50 players online.That's a very small number.To retrospectively measure this amount, "Battlefield 2" commonly has over 25,000 players.The reason "Rise of Legends" has only a few online players is because no one trusts this game for fairness.The statistics have absolutely NO CREDIBILITY.MicroSoft should enforce a policy, but the people at MicroSoft either can't figure it out or decided to do nothing.They just want to sell an online computer product, but never have to think about its online modes.The results are mis-matched competitions.This hurts the game when people log in to play a friendly match and get beat by the "General Pattons" without even a chance to get going into a match.In the automated pairing, my level five character gets paired with someone who's level 27.I'd rather play online against the A.I. players because getting wiped out by a level 27 is not surprising to me, but what is surprising is that anyone would consider the online modes as fun.I actually log in, online, only to wind up preferring A.I. players because I don't trust other players for fairness.This is because identities and stats mean nothing.MicroSoft, get your thinking caps on.

4-0 out of 5 stars Sound issues? There is on my computer.
After playing both rise of nations and the expansion thrones and patriots, I was a little sceptical because Before I bought the game I had learned that now instead of the normal rise through the ages of real life history untill modern days, they went for the magic vs technology, I was somewhat unsure if I'd like the game. But after witnessing the game first hand I was very impressed. The game has good graphics and awsome gameplay the only trouble I had with it is all I could here in the game was the music, voiceovers, and when you click on a unit or building they make some noise, I couldn't hear for example the gun shots, the noises the buildings make without clicking on tnem, or the foot noises that the huge units make when they walk. But the thing is I doubt that it was the game that was the problem I thoght it was just my speakers because I could hear thing slightly when I zoomed in on the unit or buildings I figured that I was having problems with the sound because I had surrond sound speakers so it was screwing with the noises on the map there shouldn't be a problem my sound card is more than adequate. But I never had any problems with other RTS games, anyway I dont know why its doing I'm not a computer Genius, But regardless of the sound on my computer it dosn't bother me that much so I guess I'll just have to live with it, but overall a very good Game. And for all the people who complain about games that have good graphics not having good grapics its not only the game people ITS YOUR COMPUTER! have you ever thought that it might be your computer that sucks, I'll tell you one thing I may not be a computer wiz but you want a computer the over exceeds the games requirements it will make for a better time, you should have smooth running game without any problems. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Stronghold 2
Ok, this game's got a large selection of really cool features. I havn't even gotten around to playing much of the the storyline mission. They have instant battle, also known as "siege" battles. In this, you are thrown into an historic battle.
5-0 out of 5 stars Stronghold 2 Reviewed After A Month
With gameplay similar to the original, this game is great.Stronghold 2 has some added goodies, fixes where the original got jacked up, and the whole honour/promotion deal (do good things for your people to gain honour which lets you raise an army or get promoted by the king).It also looks better than the original.I thought the campaigns were a little weak, so I stopped playing them and just played the scenarios--again...and again...and...This is one of those strategy games that has a great replay value by the way.
4-0 out of 5 stars This game is under-rated !!
Let me preface this review with two data points.First I have played every RTS and civilization type game that has come out - its my favorite type of game.For me resource management and city building are cool and the fighting is just a test of what you've built.The second data point is that I do have a modestly fast machine - its a 3Ghz Dell with appropriate Ram and video card.

4-0 out of 5 stars awesome game with one tiny flaw
c&c generals is an awesome game where u get to be a general of course and can control an army either the usa china or a strong terrorist force of the Global Liberation Army(GLA). u can build a strike team and have infantry tanks helicopters and jets.
2-0 out of 5 stars Not even close to living up to Red Alert series
The 3D gameplay they attempt here just doesn't work.It's not entertaining and addictive like the old RA 2.They should put effort into making a Red Alert 3.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great addition to a true classic
This game is very fun, and a necessary addition to anyone's game library. The storyline got a little whacky, but that is part of the charm. I like the new units that were added, and the ability to mix Allied and Soviet tech in some of the later missions.
