A poor cousin to Empire Earth
The late 1990s and early 2000s were a good time for real time strategy gaming. We got Empire Earth, Age of Empires and a whole bunch of other games. Including Tiberian Sun, which should not be spoken of in polite company. We also got a competitor to Empire Earth, in the form of Rise of Nations, a game that promised the same sort of gameplay as Empire Earth, but at a much faster pace.
