Initially developed by the veterans at Stainless Steel Studios (and completed by publisher Midway), Rise and Fall: Civilizations at War is a traditional real-time strategy game with empire-building overtones, set in the ancient world. Players choose to lead the Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, or Persians to bronze-age victory. The primary resources in the game are wood and gold, but secondary assets, such as hero units and cultural "glory points," open additional avenues of conquest. A "Hero Command" mode lets players take charge of their troops from a first-person perspective in the heat of the fight. The game offers plenty of land-based warfare, but also features advanced naval combat. A wide selection of ships, designed to scale, can be boarded and sailed by other units. ~ T.J.
