    People who haven't enjoyed this game, get it NAO. Best RTS on the system (AoE-like, not FF:RW-like).

    A lot of folks liked this game, I recall.

    Not so much a fan, myself, though. Kind of boring... [​IMG]

    It is the same as the EU one 7 months ago!

    Try it. You'll be amazed how well the transition from PC to DS went. Of course, it's missing all the military strategy the original had, but still, it's a great economical RTS. Top notch for the DS [​IMG]

    Seconded.

    Now on a more serious note... It looks fine, I just don't like the graphics. And by "I don't like" I mean I can't stand that kind of aesthetics. Also, I didn't really liked the PC version, even though I do like many others RTS games. I guess it's a matter of taste.

    This game is really good unlike Settlers was a disappointment. Very good tutorial intros and good gameplay. Way better than Simcity and of those kind.

    This game rocks. Don't listen to those other whiners saying it looks bad. Looks don't mean shit. The game is really really fun.

    Honestly, first impressions count man.

    I see the screenshots and I'm like, how the hell can I enjoy that?
    Maybe I will give it a try, but I guess the graphics will psych me into hating the game.

    I played the EU version for a couple of days in the survival/free mode, but random earthquakes happen too often. I built some large settlements and earthquakes destroy everything if they get too large. Other than that, this is a quality RTS game although the story mode is a bit frustrating at times.

    Ditto.

    Didn't like it at first but once I got over the flaws it grew on me a lot so I do recommend it to people who like this sort of game.
