About This Game

Three centuries of war continue - with even more frantic combat and more desperate power struggles raging across the American continent. The Spanish sound the attack on Yucatan amidst fierce Maya and Aztec resistance. The Germans put all their efforts into finding the legendary Eldorado. The Pontiac Uprising ends in a terrifying bloodbath between Native Americans and the British. And the Russians will do anything to conquer Alaska at the cost of the Haida.
There is a fantastic bonus for shrewd strategists: the great new "battlefield" mode in single-player and multiplayer modes! Tactical skill alone will determine victory or defeat in single-player and multiplayer games. So, plunge into battle!

I have played this game times in the past, even played it on Windows 7, but since I have updated to Windows 8.1 the message advises not to run the game because of resolution issues and there is no way, that I can find to correct this issue.

Indians, Indians everywhere

THE GOOD
Nice Warcraft-esque gameplay
intresting time period
muskets (nuff said)
good game concepts
decently made map editor

THE BAD
European AI doesnt do ♥♥♥♥
Indian AI does nothing but spam peasants at your base and keep all its power units at home
gameplay elements that dont work
historical inaccuarcy (this is a problem for me)
Indian AI is also practically impossible to defeat on your own

THE UGLY
WHY THE ♥♥♥♥ ARE THE INDIAN PEASANTS SO ♥♥♥♥ING STRONG? THE EUROPEAN PEASANTS CANT EVEN FIGHT! IN FACT IF EUROPEAN PEASANTS GET TOO CLOSE TO THE ENEMY, THE ENEMY CAN CAPTURE THE PEASANTS. BUT NOT THE INDIANS! THE INDIAN PEASANTS CARRY BOWS WITH FIRE ARROWS AND KNIVES! AND THEY ARE LITERALLY EVERYWHERE! THEY SEND HORDE AFTER HORDE AFTER HORDE OF THE BLOODY THINGS. THEY'RE ♥♥♥♥ING TERMINATORS COMPARED TO THE EUROPEANS. DIDNT THESE IDIOTS OWN GUNS? JESUS CHRIST! ITS LIKE PLAYING GOD OF WAR WHERE THE INDIANS ARE KRATOS AND YOU'RE THE MYTHICAL GREEK GOD STEVEN HAWKINGS.

This is one of my favorite RTS games to play. Forget the graphic and focus on gamplay. This game features soldiers on a MASSIVE scale. 1000 muskets can disappear in seconds to withering cannon fire, a hail of arrows, or the charge of calvary. The instant battles take quite awhile to get through but going mass calvary army seems the best way to me. Get this game. Its cheap and you might find that you'll get some fun out of it.
