Dr Grip is the newest staff member at RaFH. He's been a friendly and helpful face on the forums since I can remember, and I'm sure he will be a huge help to us as a staff member.

Feel free to congratulate him in this thread.
A New Review
Posted on 10/11/2006 at 3:56 AM by Wok
Long after I thought that the reviews of Rise and Fall had stopped coming, a new one has surfaced on a site called Killer Betties.

"I found Rise and Fall Civilizations at War to be a fun game to play, and if not completely historically accurate, it did quite well for what it attempts to portray. The civilizations all have unique units and have a feel of their own, so the game has replay value. All fans of RTS games and the ancient world should pick up this little romp in the past."

The reviewer gave the game three stars our of five.

Midways's N2DFRAY has dropped by our forums and posted an interesting topic.

Glory becoming useless? Too few benefits for levelling up?
