This little title came my way from CDV of Germany, a pretty decent AoE II clone about young America, I wrote a revue of it. :)

22.99 at GamesPlanet—quite tempting, that.

I got a kick out of the campaigns, and the looks of this game are excellent.

Yeah, I’m more after single-player campaigns than multi-player stuff at the moment. This looks to have some (gasp) thought put into it.

The campaigns tell an interesting story.

All the races are actually fun, even the Indians, they have powerful units and upgrades, just like the settlers.

Some stuff I left off the review (beacuse it was so damned long already) is that workers come as male and female, the males cost more, but can be converted to soldiers when resources run low, so they don't sit around useless, like you see in AoE II sometimes.

Also, many of the scenarios were hard, the AI doesn't give up easy in this game in the campaign mode, when it attacks it actually sends enough units to cause you serious problems.
