Rise of Nations – MicrosoftI’m so impressed with this game. This game has all the exact opposite elements of Warcraft 3 that i hate and despise. no rushes, no low populations, no food limit, no cheesy spell heroes and best of all replayability. Some other games like Warcraft 3 and Age of Empires and even Age of Mythology have an element where every single game is exactly like the previous game before it and all the build orders are exactly the same. Every time i play this (mainly against the AI) it’s different.I have yet to have a game that didn’t last over an hour. I’ve been beat and won so many different ways that it never gets old.If BigHugeGames continues to make quality games like this one Blizzad and Ensemble are going to have some serious competition on thier hands.The artwork is brilliant and looks so beautiful and just today i noticed a certain “chinese” unit that sets other units on fire. You can watch your enemy burn to a crisp and then fall to the ground. How cool is that?The other great things about this game in the full version is having so many options of different styles of games you can play.From “deathmatch”, Rush game, no wonders, to having no combat at all. It’s all within your control of the type of game YOU want to play. While Blizzard has all it’s fanboys singing it’s praises, i think the wiser, more mature gamers will embrace this game and have a blast with it. After all what’s more fun than your opponent thinking he’s got the game won only to find Nuclear ICBM’s launched into his bases and watching his “lead” crumble to pieces or full blown naval sea battles with Aircraft Carriers and Battleships and submarines. Can you even have a naval battle in Warcrat 3? don’t think so !! Air,Navy,Ground you can do it all in this game. This might possibly be the most perfect RTS ever created to date. It fixes all the problems with previous RTS titles before it. GET IT NOW!Best game i’ve played yet. Watch your butts blizzard and Ensemble looks like Big Huge Games is gonna take over…
