Rise of Europe Review
Rise of Europe is set in the Renaissance period of Europe. Players must use all their tact to strategies the best way to crush their enemies and dominate the land. Armies must be built and trained, resources must be scrounged and forested and buildings must be constructed and perfected. You will start your mission on a patch of land with a pre-made kingdom that is not yet worthy of your cause. You then have the freedom to build what you want, where you want and be able to define your kingdom as you see fit.
Rise of Europe also has random events occur; these can help greatly with either extra money or resources. Heroes become available for you to adopt and use to control your troops. This plays a large part in determine how strong or weak your unit is. Heroes can be common or rare (or in some cases, extremely rare!) and bring different skills to your army. All heroes and units can be trained, which in turn will make them stronger and more skilful.
Rise of Europe has used a lot of ideas from other games – picking out some of the best features that other strategy games have to offer and making it into their own. The game play is interesting, the graphics are up to scratch for a web browser based game and the PVP is gripping – Everything any keen strategy master looks for in a new game!
