    Absolutely LOVED this game in college. We used to play on the school LAN. There was one Friday night where we started a giant multiplayer game at 11pm and we didnt "finish" until 7am when we all with the most advanced societies found a SINGLE scout from the stone age randomly wandering around the map. He got nuked and the game was finally over...

    I am amazed how people can be that incredibly bad at voice acting... It's like they are doing it on purpose... I mean, they have to be doing such an appalling job on purpose, you cannot be this bad... It's just not possible to be paid to do something like that...

    I miss those old game boxes with the tech trees and detailed instruction manuals. Played this one many a time. And man I didn’t think the graphics could get any better.

    Im not super sure where I read it so take it with very fine grains of salt, but I heard the rights to music from the Empire Earth games were sold to documentaries and nature shows for their purposes. I can't verify this at all and when I looked it up nothing came about but It's a nice thought

    Damn. I miss the days when games came with physical products worth delving into. Such a shame that it's lost to time.
    To be fair, I suppose it saves on trees - not having to use so much paper and cardboard - but damn, those were the days.
