  • 14 Wonders of the World—the Terra Cotta Army, the Taj Mahal, the Eiffel Tower. Each gives your nation special bonuses.
  • More than a dozen map types, ranging from the Amazon Rainforest to the Himalayas to the Nile Delta.

I've been playing Rise of Nations for about ten years, since I was little. Probably the best RTS I've ever played.

General:
> Citrus repairs nuclear-powered aircraft carriers.
> Titanium intensifies the Russian Winter.
> Sheep make your civilization smarter.
> War Elephants instantly transform into tanks.
> Horses make tanks cheaper.
> Papyrus makes it cheaper to invent electricity.
> Rafts with bonfires instantly transform into nuclear attack submarines.
> Bears make it cheaper and easier to create the Department of Homeland Security and institute the draft.
> The Aztecs can field tank divisions.
> The Mongols support their horse archers with fighter jets.
> American Hoplites and Cataphracts.
> You can bribe trebuchets to transform into howitzers.

Conquer the World Campaigns:
> Play as Alexander the Great; beat up Indians and steal their elephants.
> Play as an European or Native American power; beat up Carribbean islanders and steal their rum.
> Play as Napoleon and stop Lewis & Clark's nefarious expedition.
> Play as Mikhail Gorbachev, eliminate Jimmy Carter's NATO and steal Ronald Reagan's nukes.
> Help the Americans and Chinese fight the Mongols and Ottomans in World War I for control of Mongol-held SIberia.

Rise of Nations: Extended Edition ist ein typisches Echtzeitstrategiespiel. Man startet klein, meist mit wenigen Dorfbewohnern und einer Stadt und muss dann Stück für Stück expandieren. Neben dem wirtschaftlichen Aufschwung sollte dabei die Forschung nicht vernachlässigt werden, denn Technologie und Wirtschaft sind in diesem Spiel sehr eng miteinander verknüpft. Ebenso sollte das Militär nicht ignoriert werden, möchte man nicht überrannt werden. Alle Aspekte des Spiels bauen aufeinander auf und ergänzen bzw. bedingen einander. Die Verknüpfung der einzelnen Bereiche ist den Entwicklern hier wirklich sehr gut gelungen. Die KI ist ebenfalls sehr gut. Die leichten Schwierigkeisgrade stellen, so wie es sein sollte, keine Herausforderung dar, während ich auf sehr schwer und Experte ziemlich zu tun hatte ihnen etwas entgegen zu setzen. Dadurch ist das Spiel sowohl für Anfänger als auch für Experten geeignet, denn wenn einem selbst die hohen KI Stufen zu einfach sind gibt es ja noch den Multiplayer. In diesem ist trotz des fortgeschrittenen Alters des Spiels immer noch einiges los. Ich hatte zumindest keine Probleme hin und wieder ein Spiel zu finden. Die Kampagnen sind recht nett gemacht. Man bewegt Armeen auf einer Karte die an das Brettspiel "Risiko" erinnert und wenn man auf feindliches Gebiet geht startet eine normale Echtzeitschlacht. Je nach Kampagne und Region kann es dabei zu Spezialzielen kommen, sodass auch ein wenig Abwechslung geboten wird. Abwechslung gibt es aber auch bei normalen schnellen Schlachten sowie im Multi, denn es stehen viele Modi zur Verfügung. Diese reichen vom friedlichen Forschungswettstreit, über den Bau von Weltwundern bis hin zur Eroberung der gegnerischen Hauptstadt. Dabei stehen einem verschiedene Nationen mit spezifischen Boni zur Verfügung. Auch Einheiten gibt es genug, alle mit speziellen Stärken und Schwächen.
Der Grafik sieht man leider an, dass das Spiel schon einige Jahre auf dem Buckel hat, mich hat es sehr an Age of Empires 2 erinnert. Die Gebäude und Einheiten sind aber gut designed und es ist alles recht übersichtlich. Die Klanguntermalung geht auch in Ordung, nur die Warngeräusche sind manchmal etwas nervig. Was jedoch nicht in Ordnung geht sind die Bugs (die sich zum Glück in Grenzen halten). So kann man z.B. in der Napoleon Kampagne die Briten und Portugiesen nicht angreifen, da das Spiel dann abstürzt. Ebenfalls lästig aber nicht wirklich schlimm sondern sogar schon ein wenig lustig, ist die Deutsche lokalisierung. So heißen die Inder hier beispielsweise Indianer.
Unterm Strich ein wirklich sehr gut gelungenes und recht komplexes Echtzeitstrategierspiel. Für Genre-Fans in meinen Augen schon fast ein Pflichtkauf aber auch Genreneulinge die auf die Grafik keinen übermäßigen Wert legen können es sich getrost holen und antesten.

Stehe zwar erst am Anfang, aber mir gefällt schon mal sehr gut, dass man eine ausführliche Einleitung in das Spiel haben kann, wenn man das möchte. Problematisch ist jedoch das population limit. Damit komme ich nicht aus.

Me and my mate thought it would be smart to build our docks around the back of our islnds, because the AI, like the Age of Empires II AI, wouldn't be smart enough to look back there.

They were swftly demolished.

Rise of Nations: Extended Edition is a real-time strategy game from SkyBox Labs and previously Big Huge Games, published by no other than Microsoft Studios. It's a perfected version of Rise of Nations and Rise of Nations: Thrones and Patriots, all with new Steam features like achievements, cloud saving and more.

Like many Microsoft games remake, Rise of Nations: Extended Edition retain exactly the very same gameplay and features from the previous 2 games, everything combined into a single game. If only like Age of Empires 2: HD Edition, the population limit is increased, this game might worth more. At least we get to see the old Conquer the World campaign along with the Thrones and Patriots new campaign such as the Cold War. For you who haven't play Rise of Nations before, the gameplay of this game is very good, start with a single city, build a library, college, market and expand your city, then build more cities and expand your empire into a great nation. Victory can be achieved through conquest, science or in this game called tech race, building wonders and there are more win condition for custom play.

Rise of Nations: Extended Edition graphics are, well, it's said that the water and textures has been improved, and there is a new anti-aliasing effect, but me personally didn't see that great differences from the previous Rise of Nations, or maybe it's just been far too long. The graphics are classic, but good, very good, I'm not saying it's bad, it's just kinda still old. The performances are good, no lags or any kind of problems.

Rise of Nations: Extended Edition however, have many room for improvements, if Microsoft really care. Maybe a DLC? Bad idea for most but at least there is an addition, maybe new unique units, new unique unit models for each nation (seriously, Russian launching F-18 Hornet from their carrier?), new campaign maybe the Roman campaign or something, even maybe new nation? Expansion Packs?

Like many other too, Rise of Nations: Extended Edition has the Steam workshop support for community made custom content like maps, scenarios, even mods.

But overall, Rise of Nations: Extended Edition is a great game, very fun and with the new Steam features, even better. I recommend this.

Rating 9/10

10/10 - Best $5 Spent In My Life this game is taking over my life, help me

This game was worth every. single. penny. I debated on if I should get it or not for a while, I watched some gameplay and talked to some people that owned the game since I've never actually played any RTS games. (well one, Nemesis of the Roman Empire, but that was way back then)

I've played Civilization V and probably some other Civilization when I was younger but I forgot which one it was. :P Anyways, this game is almost PERFECT for me. Almost because they could add some small features here and there, but it's not a big deal. The only bad thing that has yet to happen was my laptop shutting down mid-game, but I think it over heated haha.

What is this game like? If RIsk and Civilization were to become RTS games and have a potato, this would be that potato. If Windows 95 became a RTS I would eat that potato. Potatos are good for your health. Thank you based potato. Great game don't see why you shouldn't buy it. Multiplayer has ranked matches, even a lobby chat on the game browser. It's pretty active if you're a multiplayer type of person.

Thank you based Microsoft.

+ Border lines help to navigate differing territories, plan new settlements with a more informed approach, and investigate spheres of control; the restrictive aspect of this feature also serves to deter early rush tactics and general griefing
+ Zoom feature helps to navigate terrain and keep track of movement over large swathes of territory
+ The diplomacy options play out as more than a gimmicky feature, and are both simple on paper and functional in practice
+ Time restrictions during campaigns add to the challenge in a way that is rewarding if successful
+ Have seen some before and after stills, it's clear that the visuals and textures are noticeably improved; this should further appeal to veterans of the franchise
+ The re-release now supports Twitch integration; I don't use the feature myself, but this is still a significant boon for the streaming community
+ Features a satisfying variety of playable cultures, each with their own defining traits
+ The trategic overview map is a nice feature, and consists of a simple, turn-based Risk-style map; some notable features include: bonus cards you can apply, resource bonuses, diplomacy, and varying types of battles that hinge on several factors
+ Impressive array of options and game-modes available for multiplayer, many of them quite novel for an RTS game (although they're not quite as alien for other strategy sub-genres)
+ Attrition and supply features are a nice addition, and do well to keep one prepared and on their toes during offensive engagements
+ Excellent sense of balance in all aspects
+ Special units are presented well in the game and don't feel overpowered or cheap in their use

- The overworld strategy part of the game feels a bit watered down compared to other staples of the genre; it isn't necessarily bad, but it's also clear that this feature was never meant to be the bread-and-butter of the franchise
- The AI feels a bit underwhelming, and I had expected more of an improvement for the re-release

Well then, figured "hey lets try it out!" well. . . bit more than 3 hours later I wake up out of my trance to find that it's 2am and my homework isn't done. I highly recommend NOT to get this game if you don't like being distracted from everything around you for hours at a time. YOU WILL NOT SIMPLY PLAY FOR A FEW MINUTES!!! Great game for strategy lovers!

I actually first played the game about 6 years ago but haven't had the game in a long time so this was awesome to find it again!

I played this game when I was very young, so I undoubtly am biased to the game due to nostalgia. The gameplay itself is still very challenging and complex, especially managing the resources and multi-tasking armies, like most other RTS games.

Rise of Nations won many awards and presents execellent gameplay strategy and tactics due to it's realistic resource/market system. There's not many things that bring me more satisfaction than managing to get my resources going really well, and building up huge armies to invade enemy lands. The game itself is very complex, and with higher difficulties vsing the computer, it becomes very hard to win. The online in this game isn't very great, so I'd suggest playing 2v2 with bots when playing this game. Although you might think you'd feel like a loner, you definetely won't when you're managing an entire country, negotiating with your ally and crushing the enemies.

The five main campaigns in this game is also superb. You could play as Napoleon, conquering europe by playing very fun and interesting scenarios, such as when you gain a few armies to invade a whole heavily guarded Egypt (10/10 historical). The graphics aren't that bad either, considering that I'm very picky on graphics. There are over 40~ countries to play as in Rise of Nations, each of them with their own set of unique powers and units.

Overall, this game still remains a great RTS, with challenging and rewarding gameplay. There's no better feeling than managing to take over two countries via a huge campaign of sieging while the AI on your team does nothing but take the brunt of the enemy's force.

It's a great game, a classic. Works fine, game play is still there, no bug when i played on released. Well worth the nostalgic of when RTS was a big genre for the PC market.

But if you noticed I only played 3.5 hours, because I always found this game really repetitive and boring after mutliple games, i can't really play for more than one game at a time. I feel the same way in games like Civilization. I'm more of a three or more faction kinda of guy for RTS, three or more very different factions.

The game is a bit pricey for its age. You're pretty much paying for the online and thats it. I'm really sick of developer re-releasing these old games as HD or Extended editions. They're sugar coating this game for it's fans really, game looks the same it did when i got the game years ago. OMG TRADING CARDS!

Instead they should actually add stuff to the game or release a new version entirely. Like i didn't buy AOE2 when they HD it, i bought the forgotten expansion and it was bundled. If they do something similar with RON i think it'll be well worth any asking price.

Also they need to re-release ROL on steam, that game was a master piece.

A fun and challenging RTS with a very good price while on sale. It offers challenging play, gameplay that differs from other RTS, loads of civs to play, nukes, and amazing soundtrack (seriousky, I would buy this game just for the music, it's that good), multiplayer, streaming for all you streamers, a wide tech tree, a 'risk-like' world domination mode, campaigns, quick and useful tutorials, a huge amount of game setting customization, wonders, huge battles and many, many more features. Also it comes in a huge bundle pack so you can get other great games like AOE2 and AOE3 with it!

BOTTOM LINE:
Buy it f you enjoyed other RTS games like AOE2, preferably when on sale (because who doesn't like a great game for 5 bucks), get your friends to buy and nuke them to awesome music
