    Bought this not long ago. I already had Age of Empires 3 (without the expansions), but had lost it a while back. It wasn't my favorite game at the time, but I thought I'd give it another go, and I had always wanted to try out the expansions. I made a very good choice. The expansions add so much to the game that the enjoyability is far above what Age of Empires 3 was without them. This is my favorite rts to date, and I've played quite a few of them. Expand

    I am a Civ minion and I LOVE the world-builders. This game is highly entertaining for a RTS which I generally avoid. I wish Microsoft would take this franchise in a turn-based direction. I don't like rushing or trying to beat the clock- I do that all day at work. I think a chess-like Civ pace work work well with this title. The market is just flooded with RTS! I'm still searching for a good turn-based title that doesn't fall into the King's Bounty/ Heroes cookie-cutter style. Expand

    A wonderful game while not quite as good as Age Of Empires 2 it is still worthy to bear the name Age Of Empires and mowing down hordes of enemies flinging them across the screen not sparing a single villager BRINGING TOTAL DEATH AND DESTRUCTION TO THE LAND WITH GIANT MOTHER MONSTER TRUCKS... you know is always good for a few laughs. But this game has lost some of the grandness of the previous titles while Age Of Empires 2 is a base builder not managing an empire like a total war game it made you feel like you were in something bigger than your self in the wonderful way the campaigns were presented even if they were riddled full of historical inaccuracies. But with so much content and slick animations and just plain fun gameplay (If you like RTS style games) you more then get your moneys worth with this beautiful RTS. Collapse Expand

    Picked it up on clearance when a local Office Depot was closing, and was not expecting much. I'd played the first two games and Age of Mythology, which I loved, but it seemed to get a little less interesting and a little overly complex with each game came out, but this was actually quite nice. Prettier but not too complex, and the home cities are actually a nice adition. The cards I'm not a huge fan of for an AoE game but I like the mechanic. Expand
