"Ok Game"
2 stars"

The thing that made this game was the campains you can do. You can choose From Alexander the Great campaign or The Cleopatra campaign. These campains have good storys and Good Videos.

Another feature I liked was how you can control a hero. Their are 8 heros you can choose from including Alexander the great , Julius Caesar , Cleopatra and Achillies.

(THE BAD THINGS ABOUT THIS GAME)

It has poor graphics but the up side to that is you can play it on older pcs.

The game can get boring after awhile

Only 2 campains

So I give it a 2 out of 5.

"Innovation Meets Familiarity"
3 stars"

When I started playing Rise and Fall I was intrigued. Being a big fan of games based around the ancient Greeks and Romans I was eager to give this game a go. Not knowing what to expect certainly had its benefits.

This game is a very solid RTS. Containing a Myriad of elements from many other RTS like it; however, with a few innovations of its own that really make Rise and fall stand out from the others.

To those more experienced RTS fans, Rise and Fall may not surprise you. What will surprise you is the ability to control your hero whether it is Achilles, Alexander the Great, Julius Ceasar or even Cleopatra among other heroes. With a quick press of a button you take a third-person view of your hero and are able to control your troops from this vantage, ordering them to charge down your opponents.

Another great addition is naval warfare. Rise and Fall allows ships to beach. Once beached men can be heralded onto them and will give you the ability to ram or board enemy vessles.

Add on top of this the fact that each map has a population limit of 5,000 that means there is plenty of chances for a bit of bloody carnage to throw in there as well.

Despite Rise and Fall's achievements in terms of gameplay, there are minor set backs. Being a game made in 2006 the graphics are becoming a bit dated.

I certainly wouldn't call this a perfect game but if you are looking for a fun, clever game to test your strategies against then this is the gme for you.

Overall I'd rate Rise and Fall as a 7/10.

"Fun but not great"
3 stars"

As a very cheap and old game this is good. But compared to the smoothness and quality graphics of todays generations games. The game is divided into factions a.k.a Egyptians, Greek's etc, etc. Each faction is lead by one or more heroes like Alexander the Great or Cleopatra. Mainly it is a RTS(Real Time Strategy) but when you select your hero it can transform into a FPS when you start to chop at enemies with your sword or use the enemies as pincushions for your arrows.

Gameplay:3/10 Graphics:3/10 Music:2/10 Cost:10/10 All in all this game is a 3/10
