Reviews for Age of Empires II HD Edition


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!

Like the original but with better graphics

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

Still one of the best RTS experiences out there!

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.

AOE2 never die

I played this game 10years+ ago, and this game is still popular now. It proves that a good game only needs excellent gameplay but not epic graphics. The uniqueness of different nations makes different strategy to play.no limitations on strategy makes you find more way to defeat your enemy. You can still have much fun with this game which made 16 years ago.

Childhood RTS never dies!!!

A game from my childhood. The game nearly always balanced. All races have + and - too. So its all to the players tactics and play style. +Balance +Good multiplayer games +Nice sound and music +Good athmosphere +Detailed history for each civ. +2d +low system req. +nice campaigns and scenarios +nostalgic/old school +win 7 compatiable (no color problem, fixed) +new addons -no 3d -idiotic drawings for the units after buildings. If you are a teenager or missed Age of Kings, then give Hd edition a try. If you already played Age of Kings, im sure you already got Hd edition :)
