IGN rates Forces of Corruption 8.5
Posted on 10/24/2006 at 11:46 PM by AoErat
Another good review in for the new Empire at War expansion, Forces of Corruption. In a comprehensive review, IGN rated it 8.5, or, "Great". Here's their closing comments:
While there was a lot to love about the original Empire at War, there were some design decisions that left many gamers, including us, feeling a little dissatisfied. Petroglyph seems to have taken all of those criticisms to heart and improved on nearly every single aspect of the game. What's more, they've managed to make all the necessary improvements to the original design while still creating loads of entirely new content. Those who disliked the repetitiveness of the original game will definitely appreciate the new faction, the new campaign and the units and abilities.
