After waiting for this game; finally down loading it and getting to play it, I finally got to think about it. I first started with a similar game called OVERLORD for the TANDY CoCo TRS-80 way back in about 1985. Then when I went to IBM Compatible Computer aka today's PC; I saw in a magazine EMPIRE DELUXE Masters Edition. I couldn't catch public transport into ADELAIDE, South Australia fast enough when I found a copy of EDME for sale and reserved for me!!This I still have in its original box. Then from EDME I graduated to EDEE. Now hope I get the name correct OBLIVION did a data base called ULTRA DB. THIS is the data base I play with now in EDEE.
EDCE, after playing EDEE with ULTRA DB, is a step backwards it seems on first play. BUT like the Creator says, there is room for improvement for the NAVY, ARMY and AIR FORCE in the future. This is why I am playing EDCE now... for the time now there is a whole lot of commands to learn and click and a parcel of other things to this EDCE. In the near future there will be a data base like Ultra DB THEN the wars will really start.
So don't be dishearten if you are the same as me in what we have been playing before. Getting use to a new concept is always daunting - but gets easier with time. And knowing Killer Bee, and MOK , EDCE will be looking Great for sure.
