Legends is a good RTS, but were not convinced it makes a major leap forward. Loyal fans will love it, but newcomers may find it too much like hard work. This is a shame because the game play is immensely satisfying. Michael Haynes Lowest online...

Rise of Nations: Rise of Legends is the latest release in the Rise of Nations series. The variety of characters and gameplay differentiates it from similar games on the market. It will have a long shelf life with a plenty of new features and playing...

Rise of Legends may be one of the last great traditional RTS titles in a quickly changing genre. This game ties together many of the great aspects of earlier titles (national borders, heroes, mega-units) seamlessly. The new fantasy setting, with its...

When was the last time you played an RTS that showed any real imagination?I’m not suggesting for a minute that we haven’t had any good ones in the last few years, just noting that the best – Rome: Total War, Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War,...

I loved the original Rise of Nations game because it had some really unique ideas and the game was really well implemented. This game took the best of both worlds by taking the in-depth strategy of turn-based strategy games and added the...

My favorite part of Rise of Legends is the fact that nothing in the races is stereotypical. No space marines, no WWII anything, no Tolkien themed elves, dwarves or other sword slingers. In exchange we get three unique civilizations that use familiar...

In 2003, Rise of Nations was crowned the year’s best RTS by many international sources and won a special place in the hearts and minds of gamers. Remarkably, even with its kind of weight on its shoulders, Big Huge Games has (thankfully) resisted...

International Review By Level 7 on 75

Rise of Nations charmade många spelare världen över när det släpptes år 2003, och även om jag inte var en av dem så måste jag medge att det började klia i fingrarna när jag såg Rise of Nations: Rise of Legends första gången. Förutom att...

International Review By FZ.se on 70

Strategispelet Rise of Nations blev poppis för ett par år sedan. Utvecklarna Big Huge Games ville vandra en något snävare väg med sin uppföljare; mer fokus på story och färre raser blev resultatet. Kan basbyggande och resurshanterande kännas...

International Review By Clubic on 80

Reprenant à son compte tous les concepts qui ont fait loriginalité de Rise Of Nations, son ancêtre, Rise Of Legends partait bien évidemment sur de très bonnes bases. En partant sur un trio de factions qui nest pas sans rappeler celles du génial...

International Review By GamePlayer on 50

Det här är ett ganska välgjort strategispel. Mellansekvenserna är otroligt mustiga, enhetsanimationerna är detaljerade och resurssystemet är ovanligt ambitiöst. Och så är det lite lagom tråkigt att...
