Empire Earth III
Empire Earth III. Third part of the series, still by Sierra Entertainment. Before I'm saying anything I'll say that I didn't play the the second part but only the first and third one. Anyway, so I was playing Empire Earth in the Campaign and I was a bit surprised when there's finally an earth you could conquer. You aren't fighting over anything else but the whole world. However, I was already fighting with Russians over the American continent in 500 BC, which surprised me aswell. At the start, you can pick between West (America/Europe) East (Like, Russia) and Far East (Asia) which later, as you advance in epochs (which are only 5 now, not, like, 20 in the first one) are divided into different countries that are more advanced in one part of your army (for example, Germany is good with tanks). During the missions there are random events, like "conquer a city within 15 minutes to fear your enemies so you get additional trade out of this province (packed into a nice text, of course)" which make the game more varying. Still, it's not going to be as varying as EE I. I recall having, like, 20 buildings for each epoch and updated units for nearly every epoch. For RTS-fans this is going to be a good title I think, but, still being an RTS-fan, I don't really like it, probably expecting something similiar to ye olde and beloved Empire Earth. But don't keep this comment from testing it out, you might really like it.
Also: Fucking polls, how do they work?
