Age of Conquest III is recommended for fans of strategy games, llike RISK. In fact, you can tell there's alot of influence from that game. However Age of Conquest 3 expand on the concept with dozens more locations, scenarios and empires to deliver much more variety in strategic gameplay.
This key addition allow you to complete the campaigns in many different ways. The user interface is straightforward and easy to understand even for beginners. In fact the game was not challenging for me even on hard difficulty setting but there's always extreme difficulty. The graphics are nothing fancy but easy on the eyes, so no complains here.
Overall, I would recommend Age of Conquest III for fans of strategy games.
