IGN's Empire Earth III review - That's the way the empire crumbles

Closing comments of the review by IGN's Steve Butts:

"Fans of the series will be sad to see that this version of Empire Earth has been stripped of the depth and detail that made the first two games so attractive. I mean, it's not as if there's a shortage of shallow RTS games already, so seeing one of our favorite series effectively lobotomized is a real shock. Putting aside the damage that it's done to the brand, we might be able to appreciate the simplicity that Mad Doc was trying to go for here. Unfortunately, the horrible pathfinding and weak AI render any discussion about the overall concept or branding moot.

When you add in substandard performance, outdated visuals and jokes that completely spoil the mood, you've got more than enough reasons to pass this one up. If you're looking for something more worthwhile to waste your money on, why not just buy some of that horrible Ham Soda?"

Overall score: 5.4/10
