I've not played it, but the 1 and 2 were awesome. The fun of using nukes on knights on horseback is just great

Is there any reason for that? Things can't just be "bad" - its good form to back your opinion up with reasons.

The original Empire Earth was brilliant, I can remember once a friend and I played a 2v2 game, us vs two computer players at my local LAN club... the game lasted over two hours and in the end we had to quit because the shop was closing. I remeber, we smashed one of the enemies but then just couldn't get enough forces accross the water (it was a large island game) to attack the remaining enemy stronghold and get past his AA guns. We started in the middle ages and ended at the modern era. It was such a fun game, with the advantage swinging first one way then the other, and slowly but surely all the resources dissapeared from the map.

I've never played 2, and I have seen footage of 3, it really does look very bad. Considering that it's a pretty new game, the graphics and animations are not up to scratch, the units look quite uninspired and it doesn't seem like there is really anything new that would make it better than the original.

I always liked being really advanced against less advanced enemies. So my infantry had laser guns and they had either WW1 rifles or bow and arrows

I've never played it, but heard many good thingd about the series.Look around on gaming websites for reviews. From what I've seen, the newest addition to the series is really, really bad. :-\

Really?

I haven't played III, but felt II wasn't quite as good as I. I too loved the "all your Companion Cavalry got pwned by my machine guns" approach. I really disliked the fixed civilisations in II.

I never really liked I and II. They weren't realistic enough, and were WAY too fast paced. I prefer my TBS's thank you very much.
