While this game has many good gameplay qualities, I found the graphics were not up to the modern hype. Many times I got confused as to which unit was mine in the thick of battle. The learning curve is also a bit steep. You'll obviously need to invest some time in order to win, as I found it difficult on the easiest setting. In conclusion, if your one of those old time gamers who are willing to sacrifice excellent graphics, 3dfx and ambient sound, and prefer gameplay, this is your game.
Die neuen Rassen, Monster und Szenarien machen das interessante Geschehen noch etwas abwechslungsreicher. Viel wichtiger ist aber, daß Befehle neuerdings auch im Pausenmodus erteilt werden. Das mit starken Wirtschaftselementen garnierte Echtzeit-Strategiespiel vertrug sich nämlich noch nie mit allzu großer Hektik. Wer allerdings bereits das Originalspiel nicht besonders mochte, wird von der bescheidenen Präsentation und der hohen Komplexität einmal mehr vergrault.
Those who enjoy the challenge of empire building won't be disappointed with the experience and pleasure offered here. It's a comprehensive game that rewards the effort taken in making the proper preparations.
