This game really disappointed me right from the get go. I read all of these reviews and got really excited thinking it was going to be something like Command and Conquer, Rise of Nations or Rome...but no...I guess I should have read up more into what Sid Meier's games consisted of. The tutorial was the most annoying thing I have ever been put through. The fact that no matter what nation you pick, even Americans or British, just babble gibberish the whole time. "Blha kaba louioni turabin" like what the heck? They didn't have enough budget to actually record some people constructing complete sentences? The lack of information in the tutorial just leaves you hanging pressing random buttons to find out what they do and still not figuring it out. The only pro to this game even though it is cartoonish is that the graphics are pretty cool. Too bad I only saw it for about 10 minutes before shutting down the system in frustration.

I'm sure this is an outstanding game, but there is way too much information to digest. I personally had a difficult time understanding the basic concept of the game without any instructions and I'm not sure that would have helped.
If you are into world domination, I'm sure this is a very good game for you. It just wasn't my cup of tea.
