    I spent 18 Hours playing my first game of empire earth.

    It was good but not sure if its better than AOE2

    I like it better than AoE because:

    3d
    More technologies
    No more replanting farms
    Higher population cap
    And, err....3d
    The ships look cool when they sink.
    See through buildings when people are behind them

    A massed battle in the middle ages with seige weapons firing all over the place and blowing up looks really good.

    Gripes:

    Just can't zoom back enough to see enough action at once.
    Hard to tell when buildings are near completion.
    For some reason my Vikings are see through??

    I give it 4/5

    In the expansion you don't have to replant farms

    hehehe.. if you hadn't noticed already, your snipers probably are as well.. and if you are the enemy, you won't even see them.... :D

    They are basically stealth units. They are invisible to the enemy until they get really close.. damn good for those early surprise raids...

    I love the nuclear weapons, the screen goes white & then u get to see this wicked 3d mushroom cloud

    btw the 18 hour game is about halfway thru - I've taken out 3 of his bases (including main one) but the ******* keeps building more

    You can que a lot of farms, but eventually they run out. Then it's time to go around and replant fifty different farms. Grrrr.

    This usually happens in the middle of giant battles.

    BTW, thanks Beefy for the info on the vikings. :thumb: I shall have to use this to my maniacal advantage. Mu ha ha ha haaaa.

    Actually, you get a audio cue that your farm has crapped out. Just go to any mill refill the queue and then just replant the one farm that crapped out. Also, the queue is supposed the hold 15 farms, but I have found that if you hold the Shift key and click the farm button quickly, you can get it hold about twice that. ;)

    I usually play DeathMatches, usually don't last long enough to worry about food. :laugh:
