Very disappointed with this steam version. I had it in CD version on Windows XP and it was in French with screen resolutions taken into account!! Nothing, it crashes after 30s..

The problem with Windows 10 is the following: the game starts in fast mode, cannot kiss the speed mode or bother to crash the game with the message "" dmcr error "". More in fast mode it is unplayable...

A classic RTS, preserving the excellent quality graphics that at the time was a novelty and remains, although the language is a problem, the workshop has helped enormously. I recommend It for the gameplay and educational contribution that I could provide.

Very good Strategy game. Apart from the terrible Music that only annoys in a short Time, the Balance between Business and The military is consistent. (You can turn off music:D) For Strategy fans, the Game is a Boon. Newcomers should test this Game especially since the Graphics only serve the Purpose.

Old game I played there as a kid. It is not like the total war but it is stimulating whether in any game mode. You relive the history of the conquest of the Americas in all its splendor. In skirmish, it is interesting to be able to control, the 3 great Indian Nations of the time, Mayas, Incas and Aztecs. not forgetting the others: Sioux, Pueblos #Appaches, Iroquois, Delawares, Hurons and European Nations like France, Great Britain, Spain, USA. With a small code "babki" that adds 50000 of resources it is very fun to be able to increase the number of buildings at a high speed while increasing its population, plus 25000 men XDDDDDDDDDDD. imagine the General fight! :D
