Personally, I think this game is really hard, even on normal. But it may be just the fact I suck at Strategy games, sometime, I'll get around to it, and I'll get better at them though.

Depends on what aspect your looking at.

For achievements, its a pretty easy 950, but extremely timely 1000 due to the requirements for general.

I got this game on release, so the multiplayer curve was okay. I'm not sure how it'll be this late, though, so it might be a pretty steep curve.

I would suggest getting it, just because its my favorite MP game at the moment.

Yeah great game not difficult to understand and 950 should be easy enough (1150 if you buy DLCs). I personally started legendary properly a few days ago cause I thought it would be hard but tbh it isn't.

Bah, i saw a rank 0 yesterday. But he was still pretty good. But still, thread maker, you will get raped quite alot at the start (i did). but when you learn some stuff, then yeah you will get better. (i also got on release date)

I might give it a shot i was wondering how bad it was as well and it doesn't seem like too many people are hating on it.

As far as RTS games go, it is one of the more basic and easy to play, good for beginners to learn some core concepts when they decide to move up to better games. I have been playing RTS for 20+ years, so this one was a cake walk on my first run through to get all the skulls and such.

I personally prefer Supreme Commander and the C&C series, and EndWar is a pretty solid entry from Ubisoft.

If you are having problems on normal, drop it to easy and/or look for a walk through to find all the skulls, then turn on the ones that make it easier to win until you get better at it.

Also, do 3x3 skirmishes with all Legendary AIs and watch what your team mates do for some general hints on unit building, base building, etc. In combat, utilize the combat triangle to ensure you are attacking with appropriate units.

I heard this game was easy even on hard and the achievements were easy.

Easy achievements? well... yeah. there are a few hard ones.

the 5g on the super scarab level, (if you make a mistake)

5g on the first level, (just annoying tbh)

getting general (just very long)

5g on mission six (protect the rhinos) can get frustating

and 20k points in a game takes about an hour.

thats all the hard/annoying achievements..

it isn't an easy game, but it isnt really hard, and I like playing it. it can be a time consuming though.
