From Brian Reynolds, designer of Civilization 2 and Alpha Centauri, comes Rise of Nations, combining the fast-paced action of real-time strategy games with the strategic depth and epic scope of turn-based strategy games. Rise of Nations allows players to improve their city infrastructure, create new cities, and expand national borders. Players have the option to win through military might using everything from sling-shots to canons to stealth bombers; corner the market on key commodities; and wheel and deal with a wide variety of civilizations. Unlike other historical real-time strategy games, Rise of Nations allows the gamer to quickly play through to the modern age. Today we serve up 10 new screens for you to enjoy!
