Better then Civ 5 edition

EAflLPw.jpg

This game has everything I wanted since I downloaded steam and many disks screwed up when trying to play against people! You can play any old single player game mode including conquer the world, and typical single player matches against AI. Its brought back multi-player with a whole new ELO system to boot also, it put in in-game twitch streaming so you don't need any third party software to stream

You can play multi-player from 2 to 8 players

This game was my first ever PC Multi-player game and it holds a big place in my heart. The only reason it never got the credit it deserved is because there was no advertisement for it I found it on a Smyths toy store shelf one day and wanted to try it and loved it. This is one of them Microsoft games that deserved the advertisements to get more people interested.

Anyways talk,rant,play,stream do whatever you want in this thread! enjoy :D

Currently on steam: €20/$20/£14.99

Because opinions aren't allowed, am I right, guys? Unless that was an inside joke... In that case ignore the previous. Also I don't remember being morally corrupt as you self-quoted in your signature :D

Okay Karl all ed did was post some feedback on the thread but what ever you say buddy.

Regarding his feedback I kind of agree with him. I'd recommend civ over this game as Civ looks better than this visually however I have not played this game so I can't comment on how fun it is.

I'd consider it if the price was lower, I remember trying out a demo around when it was released.

Everyone contradicts themselves from time to time but risking that this thread is closed because of flaming I tried to stomp it out as fast as possible.

I fail to see how stating an opinion is derailing or flaming, but anyhow, keep your squabbles to yourselves. I'll handle Arctic internally.

Alright, don't see why you believe it is OOC hate. But Kden.

I do not like this game as it is not aesthetically pleasing. As shown above in the screenshots you have provided it shows us that the graphics are limiting to say the least.

I compared to game to Civ V as they are both strategy games,I believed Civ to be the better game for not only being more aesthetically pleasing, but in my opinion the better gameplay.

This is not based on OOC hate on you Karl. It is based on my opinion on the game.

No you cannot compare both games maybe conquer the world but thats a single player mode..

Graphics: Civ vs RoN = Civ

Doesn't take a genius to know games took a dramatic leap at 06 and since civilization came out in 2010 obviously they win at Graphics against Rise of Nations that came out 2003.

Players vs AI

Rise of Nations wins.

The AI aren't easily manipulated and it doesn't effect gameplay in single or multiplayer and in history games you know as well as I do Civilization 5's AI is broken beyond repair and lack modern day strategy.

Multiplayer:

Rise of nations wins...again

Multiplayer on Civilization is such a effort to bring people to play this mess let alone actually play it lets not look at the fact when you get mid game the game loads for 40/60 seconds of your next turn and after that you wont even get a chance to take a turn on this time limit unless you disable the time limit at the start of the game or extend it to 5 minutes..

Rise of Nations. When playing against people from America in 2004 it was...'laggy' sometimes but every other time it runs smoothly the AI are cleaver at both attacking and defending they do not make it easy for you.

Single player.

RoN has multiple campaigns while Civ doesn't even have one

So you are basing your argument off of graphics if that's the case why not buy Starcraft 2 since that is the best graphical RTS game out at the moment and argue that that could be competition to compare it to.

Rise of Nations wins in everything but graphics against Civ 5.

So you are comparing a RTS to a turn-based strategy game? I don't see the comparison personally, other than the fundamental ideas surrounding warring civilisations, the core gameplay mechanics are entirely different.

'Rise of nations wins everything' sounds like the most domineering opinion I've ever heard.

None of that was fact mate

Guys, what the fuck. knock it out already.

On topic, Rise of Nations is one of the better strategy games I've tried. Not THE best, but its like Risk meets civilization, and the mix works pretty well. But yes, its old.

I'll probably try this if its a bit cheaper, and if I can get some of my buddies to buy it as well.
