One of the greatest strategy games of all time. Carried by a long and incredibly engaging single player campaign. Incredible unit variety and impactful god powers make for a lot of fun. Soundtrack is among the best ever.
It's just so frickin' wild and cool. You can get whole forests to come to life and attack your enemies, build huge monsters like the Hydra (yes, it grows more heads as it takes damage), and pound the enemy city into a crater with meteor storms.
While AoM sports a new graphics engine and three unique factions, on the whole it plays very much like its predecessors. Too much like its predecessors, if you were hoping for a truly different game experience.
My experience with Age of Mythology was one of apathy and boredom... Think of AoM as Led Zeppelin’s "Stairway to Heaven." Sure, it’s a great song, but do you really want to hear it over and over again?
One of the best strategy games ever. Game genre now sunk along with so many other games of the era, but fortunately there are people who make these games immortal. I played all the DLC, repurchased the remastered in 2014, and now... I'm waiting for the Retold remake. Let's hope it's not a pay-for-fun
God save us and forgive us
Let me start off my saying that I am a huge fan of AOM, it is one of my favorite games of all time.
This reboot, however, is simply pitiful.
Lets start off on price point. Paying $30 for a game that is 12 years old is pretty steep, but they claim to have done some work to it so I decided what the heck, I'll get it.
Bad choice. Unfortunately several important units are now broken since clearly no one bothered to test the game after they made their changes. Some missions on the campaign simply cannot be beaten without using cheats now because of broken units.
As for the changes themselves, the water does look pretty. But I probably wouldn't have even noticed changed it i hadn't already known. There is absolutely NO NEW CONTENT added, it is just a rehash. I would hope they would at least do something to the horrible path finding and unit commands but apparently they could not be bothered to do that much work.
10/10 for the original game
1/10 for getting people to pay twice for the exact same thing
