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.
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.
