What can you say about this game, except that it's a true classic among strategy and history lovers? It's basically the game that made the strategy genre so lovable and iconic. It's worth every penny in my opinion and having a digital copy of this game is essential to any true strategy game addict. This game is so damn good, that one day you'll get bored of it and forget all about it as new games come out, but in a month or two, the reinstall button is gonna be there for you as therapy. Doing the campaign and playing with friends to defeat the AI is quite fun actually and the idea of raising a small settlement of people into a huge civilization is quite stunning. As a bonus, this is a remastered editions with better graphics, but we all know, it's not the graphics that brought us to this game... it's the very gameplay I spoke of previously. Endless hours of enjoyment and struggles to make your civilization survive and conquer others. Great, iconic, amazing, worthy every cent/penny game, a must have for the avid gamer! 10/10 !
Age of Empires 2 is a fun game where you build a base, an army, gather resources, explore and eliminate your enemies. It may not look the best graphically but don't let that stop you from playing as its one of the best real-time strategy games ever created. The singleplayer campaigns are historically based meaning you'll be following the stories of people like William Wallace, Joan of Arc or Saladin. These scenarios aren't too long but can be a real challenge on the higher difficulties. This game still has a good amount of people playing multiplayer. It doesn't take me very long to find a game. Age of Empires 2 had a lot of custom maps a year or two after it originally released but finding and downloading them wasn't the easiest thing to do. This version of the game has a Steam Workshop which makes it easy to download new campaigns, maps and a few other things.
This game is a workaholic. It simply will not die. And why should it? This game represents the pinnacle of Real Time Strategy gameplay. It mixes (re)playability, ambiance, and story in just the right blend to keep you captivated for hours. There is no "I'll just play for a few minutes." with this game. I bought this game when it originally came onto the market in 1999. The HD reboot is WELL worth 20.00 USD even today. A few bugs do crop up in the game, but they are so minor most casual gamers will not notice them. I give a 120% recommendation on purchasing this game!
Got it for my birthday and played it a lot.I found age of empires 2 HD to be playable on very bad computers too which is good for people who can't spend that much on computers.Played it for 50h so I'm not an expert but it is a fun game to play with friends and the campaign is also good
This HD remaster is totally worth checking out, it is just like the game we loved years ago but with pluses: steam workshop integration, tweaks and fixes moderatly frecuently and brand new expansions that add more content to an already great game.
