Nostalgic Classic884okeoJ | 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!RedMasta4 | June 10, 2014 | See all RedMasta4's reviews »
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 classicDemilisz | 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.

... 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.
