Do you guys really think aom is going to be a better game than Empire Earth?

If so, tell me why.

I think that Cossacks is a better game than EE, I do belive that AOM will be better than EE also.

I think that EE has some issues, like system requirements that haven't been adressed properly, fx. crashes due to Athlon motherboard/chipsets - It seems that everybody I have heard complaining about low framerate in EE also posesses an athlon machine, 95% anyway.

The graphics are chunky and not very good looking, the trees make me think of huge bonzais, the zoom isn't very well thought out, or can zoom out long enough to get a better picture of your status.

(and I have a Geforce 2 card with 64 mb ddr ram, so don't tell me that my graphics card is not big enough)

I hope you are being sarcastic... This game is by ES. EE isn't...

Oh man, AOM is gonna to destroy EE, though EE is a great game...

I think that thread belongs to the "EEH's games comparisons forum", not here. The issue was over-discussed.

I didn't buy EE because I don't wanna get "addicted" to a new game, and because my system won't run the game properly.

EE is very good game but it lacks a lot of features i thought were gonna be in it....unlimited resources suck.....frame rates r low.....there is no rating system like in zone. While it is a very good game it just hasnt met my expectations but AOM looks like it will =)

EE is a good game, but it cuts a few corners. If AoM isn't better then EE i will be very disapointed.

Eh...hard to decide we really can't say which is better in this stage of development ,but it depends what your interests are. If you like all of world HISTORY or SCI-FI then EE is better ,but if you like ancient MYTHOLOGY AoM is better. But disaster wise AoM is definitely gonna be better, I mean in EE a prophet throws some malaria, plague, makes a volcano, a hurricane ,or an earthquake, while in AoM it's gonna rain meteors, thunder will wreck the land, and other extremely destructive forces will occur, that won't leave a man standing and the ground scarred.

I havent played EE, and of course I havent played AoM.

But when EE came out, and I went to the store to check it out..I nearly had a heart attact. It looks so HORRIBLE. But AoM looks a tad on the blocky side, but it still looks like its gonna be terrific. I just cant wait to get it. I really hope they have an open BETA.

As mentioned earlier there is a Heavengames site specifically for Empire Earth, and its forum does even have a specific subgroup for comparing the game with others. Flames are abundant of course, but it's better to have then there than here, right? That forum is quite good too and I frequented it as long as I was playing the game.

EE is a good game I have it but alot of gamers bought it thinking it was the next Age of Empires and then found out it wasnt and know it sits on the shelf.So the EE expansion pack which realeases a month before AOM will get absolutly none of the gamers who thought it was the next Age of empires and even less players like me who wont spend the money on a new game when AOM is coming out in a month and will be far better then EE.There is hardly any comparison between the games EE wont match up to AOM.EE has a crappy multiplayer service all you players that play on the zone adn complain try out the Sierra service and msn gaming zone will seem like heaven,Msn gaming zone is good anyway.EE mises alot of nice features that AOM wil have one is recorded games and while the guys at ES are working hard at making there games wiht even lest lag EE makes a game that drops at least 1 person per game in only a 2v2 matchup!

i saw a pic of Warrior kings in my pcgamer and thought it looked cool..but i have made a few gambles on games and only came up with 1 good game out of 5
