Mostly played single player but loved this game. I think I have owned every version including when it was on Windows Mobile. Would love to see a re-do of Rise of Nations as well.

Of course! The Mediterranean multiplayer map of the Trial Version was awesome. I also liked the “semi Iron Age” of the Trial Version which allowed to play with Guard Towers but not Ballista Towers. :smiley:
