Napoleon (France, looking forward to trying Britain), Rise of Rome (Rome, want to try Greece), Mesoamerica (Maya)
Shogun was great too. (Oda)
I didn't like how the other computers did not upgrade their Dyamios, plus they always lived in their capital city so it was easy to kill them with a group of Ninjas.
Rise of rome.great one
Rise of Rome as Greece is great fun IMHO, but I've come to the conclusion that all but WWII in the Pacific are nice and I don't really have a favourite. WWII in the Pacific is just too much island hoping for me.
sorry for starting a similar thread, I forgot about this one... but it has a poll. If you are still not sick of polls, you may vote there on multiple conquests.
Mesopotamia for me. In part because it was my first!
They were all pretty good, I have trouble picking just one as my favorite. I perfer the ones that start you out from the beginning, but even the ones which start you out with pre-built cities and units after a few turns and you get a feel for everything they're all just as good.
I've tried only the first three so far. Fall of Rome absolutely sucks--the AI will not declare war on Rome for anything. Mesopotamia seems very easy relative to the difficulty level. As Sumer, I wiped out the Babylonians and Phoenicians on the way to a point victory, and as the Mycenians I got a wonder victory by being totally peaceful.
The Rome conquests are my fav so far. I played Rise of Rome as the Romans and had fun fighting wars on multiple fronts. It got a lil tight towards the end of the game. I almost ran out of time before I finally won (11 turns left). I had the territory but my population wasnt high enough. The last few turns were spent having all my workers join cities to boost me up over 50% of the world's pop. Had lots of fun playing that one.
I just finished Fall of Rome earlier tonight. I played as the Huns and found it to be challenging and fun. I love how the Huns start with a ton of horsemen and settlers that can move 2 spaces. I just moved them steadily west until I found the sweet spot. Nice lil touch there by the devs.
I had no problem getting the other tribes to form military alliances with me. It just took some money. Which I had plenty of since I stuck to the barbarian mentality and only researched the Barbarian tech tree never going over 50% science. I just bought the rest of the techs.
The biggest downside to Fall of Rome is that it seems nearly impossible to get a good war going with the earlier Barbarian units. By the time I got my cities down and got them connected with roads, I was building Warlords.
Mesoamerica with the Mayans.
My best Conquest was this chick that I worked with in Tucson. Damn she was h4wt!
I've enjoyed WW2 (as all civs), Napoleon (France & Britain), and Rise of Rome (Rome, now playing Carthage). No real favorite, they're all good.
