* AWinnerIsYouAWinnerIsYou: The game has this for the different campaign modes. You conquer the entire known world as Alexander the Great and all you get is a splash screen that says something along the lines of "Great job. Your empire will surely go down in history as the greatest." The only amusing ones are when the game goes WhatTheHellHero on you if the NuclearOption is employed in the Cold War campaign.

* ArtificialStupidity: The computer would give away a supply depot right next to its capital territory if offered enough tribute or territories, allowing the player to conquer a huge empire in a single battle.



* DeathOfAThousandCuts: Any attempt to destroy buildings with pre-Gunpowder Age ships will result in this, if the ships are not stopped first.



* InstantWinCondition

to:

* InstantWinConditionHoldTheLine: The defender in "Barbarians at the Gate" game mode wins by staying alive until the timer ends.
* InstantWinCondition: When the "sudden death" setting is used, a player wins the moment any victory condition is met without the usual countdown.

''Rise of Nations'' is a RealTimeStrategy computer game, developed by Big Huge Games and published by Microsoft on May 20, 2003. The development of the game was led by veteran Brian Reynolds, of ''VideoGame/{{Civilization}} II'' and ''SidMeiersAlphaCentauri''. Concepts taken from turn-based strategy games have been added into the game, including territories and attrition warfare. ''Rise of Nations'' features 18 civilizations, playable through [[TechnologyLevels eight ages of world history]]. It also has one of the most clever user interfaces in recent RTS history, averting the "hunt-and-peck hotkeys" nuisance that has plagued so many other titles in the genre.

On April 28, 2004, Big Huge Games released ''Rise of Nations: Thrones and Patriots'', an expansion pack. Later that year, a Gold edition of ''Rise of Nations'' was released, which included both the original and the expansion. In 2006, a SpiritualSuccessor, ''Rise of Nations: {{Rise of Legends}}'' was released, but instead of a historical game, ''Rise of Legends'' turned more towards fantasy elements, creating a world where fantasy and technology coexisted. Rise of Nations: Extended Edition was released on steam on June 12 2014, featuring both the original and expansion pack with enhanced graphics, twitch integration, and reworked multiplayer. With this causing a revival of the games fan base and fan sites, the game is more popular than it has been for years.

* RealityEnsues: Pitting [[RockBeatsLaser spearmen and archers in a battle against machine-gunners and aircraft]] goes [[CurbStompBattle about as well as one would expect]]. While launching too many nukes [[NonStandardGameOver triggers a nuclear Armageddon]].



** However, played straight for hard counters if the circumstances are right. You can still have the situation where a spearman beats a tank, because Heavy Infantry is the hard counter to Heavy Cavalry. On the other hand, motorized vehicles are [[RealityEnsues more likely to gun down any approaching spearman]].
