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

Only thing that brings it down is the toxicity of some of the players online. Otherwise, an incredible game which gets better with experience and becomes a real art to play. The game requires serious understanding of the intricacies of base building, economy management military management and micro. There should have been an Age Of Empires 4 but there hasn’t so this game is where I still get my fix even 10 years after I first played it I find myself coming back. The online community whilst diminished is still around 1000 on at any time. Enough to find games. Expand

    Very big classic, we used to play for days. Very good RTS and the online community is still alive.

I'd played the first two games and Age ofPicked 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

    Best value - original game 6 all DLCs.
    One of the best RTS games I ever played.
    Visual and sound design back then was outstanding :)

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

    I don't recommend it but it isn't bad. Get it on sale between $10-$20 and it's worth it.

    The game isn't bad but it's a lot more dumbed down from AoE2. Here you can only select a few nations and are very restricted building units (you can only have a set amount,) same with buildings - can only have a few guard towers. On top of that you can't build large cities anymore, they're mostly just small villages. The graphics are indeed better, it looks and plays great. But I wish it could be more drawn out and not as restricted. The screenshots are very deceptive.
