An extremely entertaining product if you want to play it online, characterized by well designed factions. Just be aware that if you plan to play it in single player offline mode the lack of a campaign or story mode could severely impact interest and longevity.

Looks like a newer version of Age of Empires 2, and plays like a modern RTS. Good faction differentiation isn't enough to save Empires Apart from being less than mediocre due to weak single player.

Empires Apart is a more than competent real-time strategy game featuring solid mechanics and unique features. Sadly, the almost complete lack of single player content damages the experience a bit, making the game recommended, at the current price point, only to those who are willing to play online against other human opponents.

Despite some technical issues and a skimpy single player, Empires Apart is an enjoyable and well balanced old-style RTS. If you are in search of a competitive multiplayer game, look no further.
