    Many tweaks to the AoE2 makes a faster, more streamlined game

    Ensemble Studios set the bar high after making 'Age of Empires 2: The Age of Kings' which is highly regarded as a classic by a surprising amount of people. Any changes to the formula would be put under scrutiny and woul... Read Full Review

    good RTS

    I am not much for RTS games but AOE is pretty cool and the civilizations are mostly balanced (except the british, they are OP) while still maintaining good variation. Buy the game, its worth it even though its no longer ... Read Full Review

    Age of Empires III was the near-culmination of the series' designs, especially in terms of visuals.

    INTRO: The Age of Empires franchise may have seemed like a cheap attempt to adapt medieval and ancient settings for an RTS game, but so far, up to this entry in the franchise, they had been rather entertaining, despite t... Read Full Review

    For more than 5 years, I still love this game.

    I know people might dislike the fact that AOE 3 focus less on base-defense like in the previous AOE due to the nerfing of towers and wall, but this game has its own personality and flavor, so just accept and enjoy it ins... Read Full Review

    A great game and a welcome addition to the series, but did it surpass AOE II?

    Age of Empires III was the logical next step for the series and adds some great new features to the formula used in the past. Unfortunately, however, I did not find it as enjoyable as some of the older games carrying the... Read Full Review

    Best PC game ever.

    Been going back and playing older titles as of late, and this game has reminded me of how amazing it really was and still is. Nearly perfect in every aspect. Without a doubt, the funnest, most engaging and interesting ga... Read Full Review

    Hugely overrated and undoubtedly the worst in the series. The perfect blueprint for ruining a great franchise.

    Age of Empires (AOE) I and II were and always will be some of the greatest PC games of all time, a fact that is supported by the games' ridiculous sales counts. Unfortunately, the fun stops here (watch out I am about to ... Read Full Review

    Review on AOE 3 vs. AOE 2 - How AOE 3 does not compare

    Recently, I played AOE Online. What a shame. The online mechanics don't work very well, the non-free price seems like a facebook game app knock off, and it just doesn't feel like an AOE game overall. But this review i... Read Full Review
