Some of the game's features are reminiscent of Age of Empires with the graphics (especially the towns and maps) being its notable similarity. Second are the game's age advancements; advancing to a new age changes your town's appearance while at the same time giving you more upgrade options. But with all those predispositions aside, the European setting was wonderfully realized and the game's presentation of the renaissance period was perfectly delivered. The vital town and map menus were well-thought out as well.
The way of attacking enemies is quite unconventional in Empire Rising. The map menu is like a grid of towns where players can collect coordinates, which then must be considered when players are planning to launch an attack. Time is an essential factor as the amount of time needed for your troops to arrive on its target depends on how far your target town is.
Alliances are the game's guild system, and this component is what makes Empire Rising unique. Joining in an alliance gives players the privilege to access co-op quests that offer monetary rewards together with attack and defense enhancements. But in this game, having a well-planned monetary system isn't enough to achieve glory; to possess a political and strategic mind is also of paramount importance.
With a vast collection of colony building titles already in the market, Empire Rising offers us an exciting new gameplay to experience in the world of MMORTS. Fans of this kind of genre won't be disappointed in trying this one out. Likewise, if you are new to browser based strategy games, and are looking for a fun way to pass time during the day, then this game will definitely fulfill your entertainment needs.
