Gamespot has reviewed the latest in the Empire Earth saga, Empire Earth III, giving it a 3.5 out of 10! This is a very disappointing score for the RTS as Empire Earth garnered a 7.9 and Empire Earth II an 8.0 out of 10. They cite several reasons for this throughout the 2 page review (large for Gamespot) and also relate their sadness that the third did not live up to it’s predacessors.
From the article:
We could get into the derivative, buggy multiplayer, the frequent crashes, and the demanding system requirements that bring a Crysis-conquering system to its knees, but what’s the point? Earlier Empire Earth games were acquired tastes that not everybody liked. Now, in an attempt to reach out to the masses, the developer has given us a game that nobody will like. The first two releases in the series were overwhelming, but they’re apt to inspire fond memories in anyone who makes the mistake of picking up this lame new sequel.
