Why No Review?

I'd say 4 stars as well, but you should consider it an expansion to Empire rather than a whole new iteration (even though it is standalone). It feels like a more solid version of Empire, but with a handful of shorter, more focused campaigns rather than one Grand Campaign (think Kingdoms).
If Dave were to review it, he would give it 4 stars. I can tell.
This edit will also create new pages on Giant Bomb for:Beware, you are proposing to add brand new pages to the wiki along with your edits. Make sure this is what you intended. This will likely increase the time it takes for your changes to go live.
