Strategy gaming online


Graphics: 8 - The graphics are good, but there are opportunities missed in making them a little more indicative.

Sound: 8 - A great soundtrack, otherwise a good assortment of function sounds.

Interface: 9 - Generally outstanding; deep tooltips save a lot of manual-searching. Everything in the info windows is hot-clickable, leading to multiple control layers and a nice combination of utilitarian and esthetically pleasing UI.

Play Issues
Solo Play: 10 - Hail to the Queen! As world-conquest games go, there is no equal.

Replayability: 10 - You can play every state on Earth in the 19th Century. A deep list of events keeps even the same country's play from becoming repetitive.

Multiplay: 9 - The best in the series, but the nature of the game is such that it's hard to find a game speed that is not too slow while things are developing, and too fast when things are happening, despite a clever multiplay pause feature that helps a lot.
