Decent game, hasn't aged well

This game used to be one of the best strategy games on the market. After all of this time, it's age is really starting to show. When compared with any of the newer strategy games, the graphics are outright inferior. The game also feels significantly more clunky than a game like Star Craft. If you're looking for that nostalgic feeling of playing Age of Empires II again though, you'll have quite a lot of fun, especially if you get friends to play.

Age of Empires with a mod shop

This game is the Hd edition of Age of empires 2, what it does is basically, make the sea look allot better than what it used too, making it actually move, and feel like a sea or river, it also gives support to newer OS, and resolutions. The Workshop, is one of the greatest advantages, because it makes it so you can download any map, campaign, or graphics mod, and just play it straight off the bat, I have already played with my friend several times, and the new AI is quite challenging, I myself can't even beat it in moderate. This review is to adress the HD side of the Game.

Simply epic

One of the best RTS ever created, simply amazing, you lose hours playing over and over, some scenarios you need to think well and develop your strategy, which give you many moments of fun, especially when some brandy finish.

Empire Simulator 1999

Age of Empires 2 is an awesome medieval rts game,the gameplay is fantastic, it has good graphics for a 1999 game, and you must have good control of all units(micro management) a masterpiece war game, would definitively recommend it.

This game never gets old

This is a classic strategy game. It was one of my favorite games as a kid and even now it holds up as being great. I've never been a huge fan of RTS games, but Age of Empires is one of the few exceptions. Plus it incorporates bits of history into it as well, which made learning about history more fun for me as well. If you like war strategy games, this is definitely a game for you.
