Such a classic. I loved this game over a decade ago.


With some support from green man, I got the original running smooth. It was my favorite back when it was newer. My favorite is either dark or middle ages. The arrows and projectiles are fierce. Still, you gotta love trying the atomic age and dropping a few nukes.

My favorite classic RTS


This game is great! When i played age of empires, i always used the car, and the laser troopers, which is cheating, i know, but finally, there is a game, where you can actually research those units, and create them, instead of just typing! Empire Earth is one of the few games, where you can start out with a tribe of caveman, and lead them to the space age, and in it's time it was the only one, except for civilization, which was turn based. Here, you have to move your troops in real time, so if you don't keep up, you can very well have tanks as opponents for your chariots. The tanks tend to win that battle... The single player campaign is interesting, if a little weird at times. Anyway, it's a great alternate history for sure. OK, maybe not great, but interesting to be sure. Oh, and a fair warning, you need a monitor, that has 1024x768 resolution or bigger. Shouldn't be a problem today, but who knows... :)

Best strategy game ever!


I remember playing Empire Earth as a kid and it's always had a special place in my heart. Many years later i installed the game and had a blast playing it again. In my opinion, still the best strategy/rts out there.

The best of the series


The original Empire Earth spawned 2 sequels, but in my opinion they are both far inferior to the first game. Empire Earth 3 was a disaster of a computer game and Empire Earth 2 while solid, was very scratchy and a bit too complex. The gameplay of the original Empire Earth is very similar to that of Age of Empires: you gather resources, build an empire and conquer your enemies. The graphical style and interface is also very similar to Age of Empires but there are some large differences. There is an extra resource, iron and the game takes place in many different time periods, from Stone Age all the way up to the future and future time periods add units such as tanks and aircraft. In this pack you're getting alot of value. There are many single player campaigns to play, set in different time periods and under varying civilizations with a variety of objectives such as bringing heroes to a specific location, dominating enemies and even escaping a city. There is also a skirmish mode as well as a scenario and campaign editor. The voice acting in the campaigns is passable, but the in-game cinematics don't really work very well because they zoom right into the characters' faces and its here where the dated and blocky textures really fill the screen and to be frank, look quite horrific. (fortunately you can skip these cinematics). Being an old game, the graphics and audio are very dated, but the gameplay mechanics are quite good. One odd feature is that the costs of advancing to the next age are extremely high. Back in Age of Empires it cost about 500 food to progress to the next age, but here in Empire Earth it is about 1200. I guess in this way the game is trying to force you to play strategically rather than just tech up quickly, but to me, this does seem a bit odd. Fortunately, you can play in different game modes which reduce this cost. Also, being a dated game, it ran very poorly on my Windows 8 computer for some reason, forcing me to run the game on my Windows 7 machine. All things considered, this is a pretty good, although dated package. There are lots of campagins to play and many units to have fun with around different time periods. This, in my opinion is the highlight of the Empire Earth series and is a good RTS game. Just be cautious if you have a Windows 8 computer, because the game wouldn't run properly on mine.

One of the best RTS games to date!


My absolute favourite game of all time, so its impossible for me to remain imparsial. The game has serveral main campain storylines to follow. if you're interested in Alexander the great, the rise of rome or perhaps a fictional story set in future russia not to mention all the modding going on, the possebilitis are endless. Tho the graphics are laughable in comperisend to todays games it doesen't take much away from the overall "gamefeel". I highly recommend this game to enyone especially if you have ever had a passing interest of RTS games.
