This game has featured one of the greatest graphics I have ever seen in any strategy game compared to competitors such as Age of Empires and the Total War series. The game mechanics on top of that are groundbreaking compared to its competitors.
Let me explain why the game mechanics are better. First of all this game has a brilliant graphical user interface which enables you to take on fast commands to your units and buildings which allows you to fight the enemy at an incredibly fast pace making the game-play very action packed and enjoyable. On top of that the graphics also help to make this game look very delicious.
The story was one hell of a ride with a very in depth story which at sometimes were very emotional. The character development was very intriguing and the level of depths to the characters were very realistic.
The soundtrack surprisingly was a massive improvement from the last one and especially better than many other real time strategie soundtracks i have heard (e.g. Medieval Total War II and Red Alert 2) In conclusion if you want a masterpiece of a game, get this game. Otherwise buy something similar like Call of Duty or The Sims 2.
