I think that was a great game. I tried to play empire earth 2 hyped as hell when it came out but it wasnt an improvement for me, the only thing i liked is the roads/bridges and zones. empire earth 3 was even worse, with that antioptimization technology they used, i could use a titan x and it still would lag.
i think that a remasterization focusing in ee1, but also including optionally game modes like ee2 (roads, bridges, zones and resources like oil) and maybe including some less buildings (lets be honest, there was a shitton of them) would be great.
there is also something more. the camera and unit sizes… ee1 were pretty good, but i cant describe what happened in ee2, everything seems like toys. in ee3 was a bit better but not good enough as ee1, they still seemed toys (talking about camera and unit scaling).
Could you do it? Would you do it?
