    Very lackluster, bug-ridden "update". Multiplayer is pretty much unplayable at the moment.

    Like many others, I was excited when I saw AoE2HD on Steam. I spent many a day playing AoE2 back when the game was new and the prospect of enjoying some online matches made me buy the game early (you ...

    Not much new here. Should have cost less.

    I love the original series. I was thinking that they would have enhanced a lot - but they didn't. The terrain looks the same - the character animations look the same. It seems to take longer to farm...

    I'm glad I didn't buy it and a friend gifted it to me. What a waste of money.

    A sorely lack of enhancements and a sprung of new bugs mar this 'remake' of the all-time legendary classic

    Mini-Review If you're a 90's kid, you've most definitely played Age of Empires II. Hell, it ruined my primary school grades and managed to nearly fck up my chances to getting into a good high schoo...

    Its back baby, one of if not thee best RTS of all time, now with renewed support of online play and win7/8 compatibility

    Rated on April 21, 2013 by lucinator

    One of, if not, thee best RTS of all time is now playable on your computer. While the game play and the graphics haven't changed that's a good thing since the original rocked. Online play allows you...

    Apparently "Remastered" only means resold...

    Rated on October 28, 2013 by Titantheman
