Awesome: Emperor: Rise of the Middle Kingdom

  • The end of the final mission; you fully achieve Alternate History and prevent the Mongolian invasion of China by halting Ghengis Khan's army.
  • Most any mission where you build a monument; special mention to the Great Wall, the Grand Canal, and of course, the Terracotta Army of Qin.
  • The first missions of the Qin and Song campaigns have you unite China the hard way; by conquering all enemies cities. The second Qin mission is particularly satisfying when you reap the rewards of your hard work; all cities instantly ally with you or become your vassal, and you're giving a sprawling map, the largest in the game up to that point, to begin building a new Qin capital.
