Summary

An A+ for effort in graphics

The Good

The campaigns were very good in this game. The objectives were easy to understand, and I had never come across anything like them in any other game. I had fun playing around with the camera which was eay to control and adjust. Last the units, I enjoy building up big armies, and so far Empire Earth lets me build the biggest [1200 units.] This means huge battles, and I don't know about you but thats the whole reason I buy these games

The Bad

The standard game mode can become boring, becuase the game's AI thinks the same each time. This leads to a lame game if you know whats basicly going to happen to you in the end. Last the game is just plain slow. It takes a while to produce a unit which is bothering when trying to build up a large army. My advice to solve this tiny problem is to make two or even three of each military building.

The Bottom Line

So basicly Empire Earth has good gameplay, but can become boring after a while if all you play is the standard game mode. I 'd say its worth the money if you want a game that not only lets you fight in modern times but also in the past. For me the goods outwayed the bad. Buy it for gameplay and graphics not for a game you think is new and different from all others, becuase it's not.
