Good campaign story

I really liked the story of age of mythology. You can choose different gods and accordingly have different bonuses and supernatural powers.Like all other games like age of empires,rise of nations you need to manage resources properly to gain victory.It takes. a lot of time to complete a stage.But the campaign mode and story is really good

"Meh"

RegretZero | May 5, 2015 | See all RegretZero's reviews »

Let me preface this review by mentioning that I LOVE the "Age of ____" series - Age of Empires 2 being my favourite. Age of Mythology is a game with some pretty awesome gameplay. It's definitely a game I'd recommend to anybody that enjoys RTS titles - I feel it embodies much of what makes AOE2 so great while adding a lot more visual representation of what's actually happening with regards to upgrades, different civilizations, etc. That being said, I don't necessarily believe that the additions made to the game in its "extended edition" warrant the price tag. The game is pretty much the same AoM you'll remember with regards to graphical fidelity, so that's really not much of a bonus. The Steamworks multiplayer is nice, but the lack of LAN play is rather frustrating (why is this missing? It makes playing on the same network so much nicer!). The mod loader is a pretty neat addition, admittedly.

Probably not needed

While the HD edition of Age of Empires II actually adds things (not to mention "the Forgotten" DLC) this Age of Mythology HD edition is not worth the huge amount of money it costs. The game is pretty much the same Age of Mythology you may have been playing 10 years ago, initially it was even worse because of nasty bugs and such but now (after a year or so) almost everything have been fixed. Still I have to say that if you don't have the original 2002 game this is still worth buying (and probably it's a must have) because Age of Mythology is really a good game, with hours and hours of enjoyment awaiting for you.

Same great game with slightly better presentation

Age of Mythology is one of my all time favourite games. With varied units, Gods and powerful myth units there are many different avenues of play by which to destroy your opponents. This extended edition retains all these aspects and slightly improves the graphical presentation. Aside from the graphical update, the most dramatic change in this edition is also the Steam integration which includes achievements, trading cards, multiplayer leaderboards and the Steam workshop. The Steam workshop is of particular interest as there are many user made mods available such as skins, maps and UI changes to enhance the game ever further. If you are looking for a classic, fun and engaging RTS this is one of the best ones out there.

+ Well it's old game - View too close - Pathfinding - Especially A.I. pathfinding! In case you're feeling nostalgic, my advice for you is to get Age of Empires II HD.

Nostalgic Classic

884okeoJ | July 12, 2014 | See all 884okeoJ's reviews »

Age of Mythology is a spin-off to the popular Age of Empires series, inheriting most main mechanics and gameplay features. The added mythological theme sets it apart from it others in its genre. Like Warlock vs. Civilization, many of the key components are the same, but the themes are wildly different. This HD Extended Edition is a lot like the HD Age of Empires 2 re-release. The game looks marginally better, but hardly enough to warrant a new purchase. Where this re-release gets its value is from the simplified multiplayer that Steam brings. If that's what you're looking for, you could do a whole lot worse than this game.

Nostalgic? Fantastic!

If you didn't get the chance to play this amazing RTS game back in its glory days, then now's your chance to relive it in enhanced graphics and (personally) a much smoother feel to the gameplay! While nothing has truly changed dramatically, it is still great to see such an awesome game back on the market, and deserving of the praise and gameplay it commands! Go ahead. Choose a deity.

Underrated classic

Demilisz | May 22, 2014 | See all Demilisz's reviews »

Now, underrated classic is of course the original Age of Mythology, not this new version. But Extended edition is "just" original game with expansion and some additional touches to make it look prettier and work on current systems. This game had his flaws, but it's gameplay was, and still is, addictive. Practically it plays like Age of Empires with mythological creatures and four cultures that plays differently each (leading Egypt is much different experience than playing as Vikings for example). If you are a fan of classic RTS (with base building, training troops and so on) buy this game. Worth it.

Lets get on a feels trip...

Sciazs | May 8, 2014 | See all Sciazs's reviews »

... To one of the best nostalgia RTS games. Great successor to the Age of Empires franchise with great units involving greek mythology. Wreck havoc with Minotaurs, cyclops, you name it! Steam 2014 release has increased the visuals to look less dated. Though the textures look like a mere upscaling of graphics from the 90s, this is still nevertheless a great RTS to please all fans of the genre. A definite must play.

Oh the joy this game may bring!

toshexy | May 6, 2014 | See all toshexy's reviews »

It is such a nostalgic game. It's been years since I first played it, but oh how delightful each and every second playing this game has been. You pick a culture, and play as the gods it has. Lay waste to your enemies with the thunder of Zeus, spy on enemies with the power of Loki, or call upon a meteor to devastate any who oppose you through the wrath of Set. Though it's an old game, it has quick gameplay and it's a joy to play through the eras wielding godly powers that may both aid your people or destroy their enemies. Picking which God you play as is vital and it will make you want to play again and again to explore every god's powers. And even more fun when played with friends. Give it a shot, you will not regret it. This game may be old, but oh does it bring a smile to one's face.
