This is my favorite game ever.
That may be because I saved up and bought it with my own money when I was a kid. And then committed a lot of time to getting good at the game.
I REALLY enjoyed the Russian campaign. I mean all of them were good, but that one had an awesome time traveling story and stuff.
But what kept me coming back for more was the multiplayer. By the end of my time playing the game online I was up there as the best in all the MOD settings (dm/sh/tl) and Mid, and Pre to space. I won a few online tournaments and once at a lan party. But those were all for fun of course. I used to LOVE clan wars.
Just wanted to be the one to post here. It is a shame that the sequels sucked so hard. I bought Empire Earth 2 optimistically and they really let the community down. They really just needed to remake the game and add some more awesome campaigns, but instead they screwed up and tried to make it all civilization style or something.
