- Crosses the Line Twice: The mod brings slavery, caudillism and religious fervor to the front, instead of skimming around it. This even extends to Romania's Domnator being Vlad Tepes.
- Doing It for the Art: The modders for this one have been at it for years, and it shows.
- Serial Numbers Filed Off: Some of the gameplay mechanics, icons and sounds seem to be based on if not outright lifted from Rise of Nations, Age of Mythology and even Age of Empires II.
