best age of empires game (havent played the latest so cant say for sure), aoe 2 had to many quirks for me to prefer 3 over it, gives u some breathing space instead of trying to bore lure and micro towns aoe3 lets u do more of the fun things, and makes units more understandable. 10/10 many thousands hours since childhood and now in my mid 20's

Gameplay is simple but there are are some elements that makes it enjoyable. Campaign is a little bit short but satisfying. Not good as Age Of Empires 2 but still a playable game in your free time.
Better than AOE2 first and foremost, music: 4/5, cinematics: 4/5, UI: 4/5, Story: lol 5/5. So here's the bad part, base building is still slow, campaigns ditched base building in many missions which is good, also added more variety in objectives, the story is fun but if I constantly have to wonder what's true and what isn't, that's a problem, though it did make me curious enough to actually read the real history so that's a plus. Skirmish matches allow you to go into death match, which negates base building to some degree but cannons are so over powering. I like the feature in blitzkrieg where inanimate things aren't units but rather are things that units can take control of, in BK you can kill artillery crews and seize the cannons. You can clear out buildings and reoccupy them, features which this game sorely lacks, in BK you don't build structures or train armies, that's ridiculous, you just call for reinforcements or better yet in the Fields of thunder expansion you have to wait for reinforcements to arrive. Lots of features in this game allow you to save time, like home city cards, but if you're facing an enemy with better cards you're done for.
