rise of nations (ron) is a very good game that makes you build your citys, and eventually building up your forces to fight. you have to get the hang of it first, because you have to research things before you can build things. for example you have to research military level 1, before you can build a barracks. the most educational thing is the concept of this: you start at a old age and research to get to new ages. just like star wars empire at war, you have full controll of your troops. troops range from battle ships to flamethrower guys, to bombers. you can choose a race to play as too, like china the US, and many indians. over all it is a six star game, but it only had five.
