The story behind the game of Rise of Nations is rather interesting. It is set during the time period just prior to World War II, when people are very afraid of the threat of the Japanese military. As such, they organize various resistance groups throughout Japan and also neighboring regions. Some of these groups include the Unitologist army, which are based in Bighugegames' Windows port of Rise of Nations.
Installation. Like most other RTS games, Rise of Nations: Rise of Legends requires a fast internet connection. With a high-speed connection, you can easily complete the game with just a few short minutes. Just insert the first disk in your computer's optical drive and then follow the on-screen instructions.
Map and scenario. A large portion of the game involves building up the nation's infrastructure. This is done by selecting various districts from the start menu and then spending resources to improve their productivity. At every turn, a certain number of military units will be sent to the selected cities, which will then be used to earn income and build new buildings. The player may decide to control the overall progress of the game through the use of a strategic map, which shows all available territories and which will allow the player to allocate budgets in the right way.
