I wish tey made a mod that made rome ttal war more gory, like a guy swing his sword and the other guy arm get cut off with blood, blood would of made the game much better i reckon.

It probably would have helped to play the tutorial as well

But, to my defense most tutorials are completely lacking or are wayyy too basic.

I played some today, but I was met with an error and the game shut down (something about a windows host service not responding... dunno about that). However, I tried what you said and the game was going a lot better except I had trouble defending this one planet (set off from my other planets).

Yeah.... we should def. play... when does the expansion come out? I'm game.

The Civ series is turn-based, the AOE series is real-time.

Thanks for everyone's feedback... I think I will go back and use some mods for the Total War games, play COH and Sins of a Solar Empire for now. Though I am tempted to try the AoE III out.

If you ever get the hankering to play CoH or Sins online let me know I will see if we can't hook up.
