By far the most striking thing about EE is the whole atmosphere. The music varies depending on the epoch, and along with the graphical changes occurring throughout the game there’s a real sense of purpose to the proceedings.
EE also hints at a unique rawness that AOE never managed. The liberal use of blood and the ability to zoom right into the action helps of course, but there’s something else there that we can’t quite put our finger on So, with a couple of months to go before release Empire Earth is looking and feeling good about itself.
Our only major criticism at this point is the blatant lack of originality, but if Stainless Steel Studios is sacrificing that for good old fashioned playability, who are we to complain? Although Empire Earth bares many similarities to Age Of Empires, its one defining difference is that you can zoom right into the thick of the action. But can you really play from this view, or is it just a flashy feature that will look great but be useless in terms of gameplay?
Having spent the best part of a week playing the Beta, I have to admit it’s nearly impossible to play from this view. However, it’s pretty quick and easy to zoom in and out, so the best thing to do is issue your orders from the standard overhead view and then zoom in to take a quick look at the carnage, which you have to admit, looks pretty spectacular up close. There has to have been a time – perhaps when you’re waiting for that bus that never comes or when your mind is drifting while you’re talking to the world’s most boring person – that your thoughts have turned to what could possibly be the perfect computer game.
While this is subjective to a large degree, there are certain game concepts that just cannot be argued with. One of them is a game called Civilization which is arguably the most original and addictive game ever created. However, while RTS games are undoubtedly more exciting than their turn-based counterparts, they have never managed to display the sheer depth and complexity of the mighty Civilization. Civs graphical simplicity allowed it to give gamers a huge and diverse amount of choices in which to play the game, and a technology tree that RTS games could only dream about.
It appears to be obvious then, that any game that could marry the timeline and complexity of Civilization with the edge-of-the-seat excitement of an RTS game, would surely be the perfect strategy game, or at least as damn close as you’re ever going to get.
That hypothetical game has finally arrived, and its name is Empire Earth. Empire Earth takes you from prehistoric times right through to modern times and beyond, covering every important stage of human evolution along the way.
It’s mighty ambitious, and the developers have not skimped in terms of diversity of units and technology as you are taking on a massive tour through human history. You’ll discover the obligatory mass slaughter along the way that only the human race would ever think of imposing upon itself at every opportunity.
In terms of look and feel, you will be on familiar ground right from the moment you load up the game and dive into the prehistoric era. In fact it’s not unfair to describe it as AOE with a lot more epochs and a lot more units, so similar are the two titles. This, as we all know, is no bad thing. This one of the best RTS games we’ve ever seen, so any game that claims to be AOE with knobs on surely can’t be a bad thing, right?
Well, yes, and no. While there’s nothing particularly wrong with 2D strategy games, we have come to expect proper 3D in just about every genre these days, and it’s something of a shock to find that Empire Earth, although 3D, has ditched its free-roaming camera and instilled a fixed-angle view, although you can still zoom in and out.
This has obviously been done for gameplay reasons so you don’t get lost while you’re swirling around but its looks suffer accordingly. And, the problem we have with EE is not purely aesthetic. You’ll often find yourself swirling your mouse round to look behind buildings, only to remember that you can’t. Almost imperceptibly, ‘true’ 3D has become as important to gameplay as it has to aesthetic prowess, and while it’s not an insurmountable problem in EEs case, it’s certainly jolting for the first few hours of play.
The only redeeming feature in this particular area is the ability to zoom in very close to units so you can see the amount of detail on them.
This is more or less a novelty feature however since you never actually play the game from this viewpoint, and unless you want to play the game with no clue what the enemy is doing, you will play with the camera zoomed as tar out from the landscape as you can get. Apparently, a 30 camera is fully supported in the code but didn’t make it into the final product.
Technically then, EE does itself no favours. However, once you get beyond the game’s technical limitations, there is much to enjoy. At its core, EE is basically a very simplistic real-time strategy game. Build, explore, fight, it really is that simple.
Unlike most games of this ilk however, EE takes you through many eras of time, and the units and buildings you create all change to reflect the time period you are playing in.
As was the case with AOE, there are only a few resources to collect in the game: wood, stone, iron, gold and food. All these resources are needed to create your buildings and units, and in time-honoured RTS tradition, you will find yourself collecting these resources while at the same time attempting to crush your opposition with military units.
It’s a winning formula, and in fiFit’s a much more appealing one since you get a mind boggling selection of units to play around with. From prehistoric times right through to the Nano age, you will get what at times seems to an endless supply of new vehicles and ground units of all shapes and sizes. Imagine AOE taken way past its tour epochs to its logical conclusion with futuristic warfare and you pretty much have EE in a nutshell. For this reason, it’s supremely playable and totally engrossing for the length of time you spend playing it.
Our only reservation is its long-term appeal. We went from the first epoch right through to the end of the game in just two days, at two different difficulty levels.
Either we are unbeatable at strategy games, or the designers made it too easy to upgrade from one epoch to the next I suspect the latter – Ed. There is no doubt that if you like real-time strategy games, you will not be at all disap ointed in EE, but unless you want to play with the pre-defined scenarios and campaigns once you finish the game ‘proper’, you may feel a little short-changed at the length of time it takes you to complete it.
That said, Empire Earth is a very solid RTS with a huge amount of depth and variety in terms of units and buildings. Even if you only play it for a couple of days just to get through all the different epochs, it’s worth the asking price for that alone. The background of this epic game is the very history of warfare on Earth itself. From the early days of man in prehistory circa , BC to the Nano age stretching into the 23rd Century, humanity has always been at each other’s throats.
In Empire Earth your goal is to not only explore your world for the resources necessary to survive and thrive, it’s to build a mighty empire and the armies need to protect and expand it. Starting in pre-history you must advance through 14 historical Epochs before reaching the Nano Age where nanotechnology constructs the first Cybernetic warriors.
Any hardcore, or even casual, real-time strategy fan is going to pickup Empire Earth’s strong resemblance to Age of Empire II: Age of Kings almost immediately.
The graphics are similar, the interface almost identical and, to a degree, the play itself seems to mimic AOK , as well. But try playing your first game with the same strategy that made you master in AOK and you’ll be in for quite a butt-kicking. As in AOK you will spend a large amount of your time searching for and collecting different types of resources. Heck, with the exception of an additional item, iron, the resources are identical.
Again like in AOK , you just hunt around for piles of the stuff and then start your citizens to work digging it up or chopping it down. A major difference in the gathering aspect of EE is one you’ll find echoed throughout the game; it’s more complex.
To speed up your gathering you can build a settlement, which allows you to drop off your stuff there as opposed to trudging half-way across the map, back to your town center.
But, to make that more efficient, you can also populate the settlement. Doing this speeds up productivity but you permanently lose the citizen living there. The more people you populate it with, the more productive the citizens — throw enough people in and your settlement becomes a town center and then a capital. It’s quite ingenious. The same can be said for many of the buildings in EE , most don’t just spew out new troops, citizens or weaponry.
Houses, for instance, increase the morale of nearby troops, making them harder fighters and making them slower to die. Build a hospital and everyone within a certain radius gets healed slowly. Universities protect people from being converted by enemy priests, temples prevent calamities think plagues, firestorms and the like , docks, naval yards and airports repair their units.
The list goes on and on. Another addition to the standard AOK -style of play is that Wonders actually do something other than stand there and look pretty. In AOK they merely allowed you to either win, or to taunt your opponents with needless and expensive eye-candy, not so in EE.
From the Temple of Zeus , which allows all units to heal themselves anywhere on the map, to Library of Alexandria, which instantly points out all buildings on the map, Wonders can be a powerful tool in EE. Suddenly the way you construct a town and where you place buildings becomes an integral part of your strategy. Latest Games Loading Empire Earth. Download Game Setup.
