[Game] Emperor: Rise of the Middle Kingdom


My favorite city building series visits Ancient China, and while it offers the same super addicting game-play as its predecessors, the whole thing is starting to feel pretty repetitive after that many reiterations and expansions.

I guess that’s also why this turned out to be the last (proper) game in the series (it’s still pretty awesome though).

Positive: Negative:
Hand-drawn 2D graphics aged surprisingly well The formula is getting stale with the fourth installment
Fantastically addicting city builder game-play
Challenging difficulty
Beating the map feels extremely rewarding
A somewhat interesting narrative based on Chinese History
