I really enjoyed the first Rise of Nations, and I wasn’t surprised to see it followed up with the requisite expansion pack given its success. Last time around, I conquered the world with the Mongols using no diplomacy. Through pure invasive conquest, I took over the world and it felt damn good. This time around, not much has changed and the minor quibbles I had with the original still remain. However, the inclusion of some great new campaigns, more than make up for those setbacks.
