Good campaign storyhtanmsa | May 15, 2015 | See all htanmsa's reviews »
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

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 neededsmilzoboboz | April 24, 2015 | See all smilzoboboz's reviews »
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 presentationlachking | Dec. 22, 2014 | See all lachking's reviews »
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.
