So, my earlier problems with Empire Earth and Empire Earth: Art of Conquest seem to have oddly self-resolved. Now, I am wondering whether I actually need to play both games or if I can safely just dive into Art of Conquest?

To this end, I have a few questions to help me choose:

  • Is Art of Conquest just a sequel to Empire Earth, or is it an expanded version of the original?

  • Are all of EE's original missions and storyline covered, if I start a new campaign in AoC?

  • Would I miss anything if I were to completely disregard and never play Empire Earth - only playing the Art of Conquest game?

how did you solve your earlier problem? Also playing EE first will teach you how to play, byt other than that, i can think of no real reason why you should play EE first –  Gareth Jones May 17 '12 at 2:42
@GarethJones Like I said, the problem self-resolved. I did nothing more to troubleshoot it than was already listed, and today - a week and a half later with no testing since - it suddenly just worked. I don't even have to run in compatibility mode. –  Iszi May 17 '12 at 3:07
Oh ok, lucky. Like i said, i recommend you play EE first, but it wont have much of an effect if you dont –  Gareth Jones May 17 '12 at 3:14
Wonderful, you should have gone back to that question and answered it yourself and accept it it so its done. Could have saved myself time trying to answer it! You should also work on your acceptance rate. Leaving question you got solved unanswered (Your own answers do count) is more than confusing for people coming across them in the future! –  François Wahl Jun 8 '12 at 23:04
