"CONGRATULATIONS / YOU'VE COMPLETED ALL LEVEL"
I'm not sure why NG recommended I play this or why it has the average score it does. After the first age you can just stock up on resources and skip every other age with at most two fights. Just as well since the fights are also boring and you're given no clue as to what the strengths and weaknesses of the units are.
The map was terrible and should have just been menu-based with visualizations rather than having to scroll and place buildings in individual plots so laboriously.
Another obvious oversight: food doesn't do anything! Why would I build farms when I can get through the game just fine with -500,000 food in the bank?
