Well after all the hype I heard about Rise of Nations, I decided to spend my money on it.Wow, was I dissapointed. It is basicly AoE II all over again, except worse, and boring! Even the campaigns are boring. It's a nicely well done game, but if it were only fun. It's fun once I get to the Modern Age +, but that's were C & C Generals comes in, doesn't it? Any back to Age of Mythology for strategy gaming. I should of spent my $50 on something good, like Ghost Recon 2 for my Xbox. Take this as a warning: Rise of Nations is a waste of both time AND money.
