Yes gun-based RTS games are never the best.  Give me a sword, spear and arrows or some lasers, shrink rays or photon cannons, please!  Don't meet halfway with guns... which hold no purpose whatsoever.

So then what do you think of the upcomming Empire Earth II? Does a game like that interest you Janos?

No, it doesn't.  Empire Earth I was an abysmal game, so i hold absolutely no interest in it's sequel.

You're kidding. Empire Earth is like... the absolute best RTS made to date.... At least in my opinion. *Shrugs* Whatever. You're entitled to yours.

No, it really wasn't.  In terms of actual strategy and gameplay value the Age of' series or Starcraft were the best... Empire Earth was just poor.

Empire Earth was screwed the instant SSSI signed with Sierra.

I wish they would fo went with microsoft studios or something else.

Empire Earth was great cause u could rush with towers the minute the game started.

If I still could play aoe2:tc then I'd prefer it over Empire Earth

Why does it always seem like I'm always in a minority as far as things I like/dislike go? I like Empire Earth, I like The Matrix Reloaded, I hate Napolean Dynamite, the list goes on...

I liked Empire Earth 1, but Sierra just fed up the entire game.
SSSI sold it to sierra and they made Mad Doc make the sequal and the x-pack they made for Empire Earth was crap, except the civilization bonuses.

Napolean Dynamite is a super cool movie! it has some of the best one-liners ever.
anyway sorry for going off-topic.

Alright. I admit it. There were a FEW good jokes in Napolean Dynamite. But in general, it was just stupid.

No need to apologize. This thread has been off-topic for the past 8 posts or so.

I think AOE 3 is going to be kind of half-balanced between guns and swords. I hope the gameplay is good. While the shots are the most beautiful thing I've ever seen, I hope it doesn't ruin the awesome simplicity/pace/unit cap of the originals.

I HATED Age of Mythology and hated the Titans even more.

But- AOE2: The Conquerors is my favorite game of all time.

I can't wait for it. It's looking really good.

I didn't think Empire Earth was bad, I thought it was pretty good. Then again, I've only played the demo since I never bought the real game.

Starcraft was fun, but it had some SERIOUS issues. when a games gets a phrase coined from it "zerg rush" and that phrase is a bad thing, that's not good. heh, we used that a lot in Planetside...

I'm looking forward to Empire at War, the new Star Wars RTS.  I've always wanted a Star Wars fleet battle game.  The mod for Star Trek Armada II isn't quite the same. ;)
