A little disappointed but still good.
on 7 December 2007
I think this game is not as good as the Warchiefs expansion. Firstly it is much easier and less challenging - I waltzed through this game in ultra quick time so it does not have the longevity as previous titles.
The music also has not changed from the Warchiefs which is the games developers just being plain lazy. Would have been great to have music fitting to the Empire being played and era. The music ended up being irritating after a while.
I quite liked the plot of the Chinese visiting the New World and there is some evidence of their massive fleet actually discovering America way before Columbus did.
The game is still good and fun in parts but lacks the atmosphere to make this a great game.
