The question is, how much better than AoE2 is it? They look very similar to me, and I'm wondering how much "added value" is in EE... ie, is it worth forking out the dosh?

Read a review a while back on Gamespy, and they gave it 94% and found it hard to fault, aside from high system requirements. And they usually find faults.
Its practically Age of Empires, with a 3D camera, better graphics, and a more epic time scale. And you can probably get it for a good price now.

I have EE, and it is a really fun game, much better then AoE2. You can have a ton more units, plus the really cool feature of going from the Stone Age to the Nano Age, with everything in between. It has many different units, and some of the special ones have really cool abilities like calling down lightning from the gods, or teleporting units, very cool.

I haven't played AoE, but Empire Earth sure is fun, although I needed a bit to understand the "concept". The graphics are nice, the sound is amusing and funny, and the gameplay is smooth.:)

hmm... I love aoe2 but havn't played ee, i don't like the looks of ee, i thought considering it went to every age it would be difficult to play, aoe2 is a fun game because of the fact it takes place in three ages and dosn't jump too fast.

That's the cool thing with EE, is it's customizability. You can set what age you want to start at and end in skirmish, and the single player campaigns start at various points in history (Classical Greece for one), so you can decide what and how many ages you want to play.:D

Cool! I wish there was a download site where you could download the demo/free full version of it...

I get my demos from a gaming mag at the local library.
