Great for all gamers
28 January 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A excellent game. It is easy to understand, but challenging to master.

It allows you to customize your own nation through history, and its Worldbuilder function saves you in a pinch. Does your nation evolve into a democracy, a dictatorship? Do the Huns conquer you, or do you conquer them?

However, this game is for patient people, you can't be expecting it to explode quickly. You must be willing to bide your time as your nation grows in strength. Or is it for the impatient? With world builder, you can jump ahead, marines can be played against knights and guns against clubs are possible with this feature

All in all, a great game
