and I decided to stay with Age of Empires II.
In my humble opinion it just works way better than the rest newer games. Gameplay is just more dynamic or maybe I'm just used to it too much.
anyone else in here still plays Age of Empires II? (aok and aoc)
AOK:TC is definetly still a great RTS. You're not alone.
I've been having a lot of fun with Rise of Legends. Have you tried Rise of Nations at all? Many people seem to enjoy that. But I don't think anything will replace AOK.
I like AoM best, because the game is just enough realistic.
With this I mean that it isnt that realistic that you have too shoot a person twenty times with an arrow for him to die, and it is not so unrealistic that you can get laserbeam that kills everything... except for that super-duper-hyper-mega monster you are fighting against...
so far ive played every game of the age of empires series and i would have to say age of empires 2 the conquerors is still my favorite. its graphics may be nothing compared to other games like age of empires 3, but i like the gameplay more. in age of mythology i only played through the missions and barely played any multiplayer games. i played through most of the age of empires 3 campaigns and also play it over lan with friends when they are over. either way they are all great games.
i like if there are flaws in the game tho like dissapereing armies (its happend trust me) and a few others but over all i would rate this game very highly
The second one is by far the best of the Age of Series in my opinion. It had it's faults but the great gameplay made up for them several times over. Even playing against the computer wasn't a waste of time like it is in too many other games.
Empire Earth 2 wasn't bad though, although that's mostly because it followed a very similar set of gameplay mechanics to AoE2.
All of the AoE games were great games. For awhile. Won't anyone agree that the game gets old after awhile and you just don't want to play it anymore? This has happened to me with all of the AoE games. They get old. Especially after beating the game twice. I suppose all games get old though.
My favorite of the aoe series is gona have to be aoe 3. I have every single one of the aoe games including age of mythology and its expansion.
What i love about aoe3 is that you can go online and play with others and gain ranks. Another reason is that you have so many different countries and units and to win you have to use different units to defeat other ones. I love the ship battles. Whenever you hit a boat, you see the splintered wood flying off the ship. My second favorite is aoe 2.
All of the AoE games are great games. i still have lan games with mine friends on week ends it starts with aoe to aoe3 .its fun
well i havent play age of empire 3 yet.. but i kind of a strategy game maniac!!
i love the age of empire series...
but me myseft prefer red alert more tha age of empire!!
Empire earth are a great startegy game compared to the Warcraft 3 .. my opinion.. the warcraft is a bit hard to control and handle the soldier!!
well the "aging" process in the game make me attract to it as the 1st time i play..
but i live on far behind civilization... hard to find a copy of Age Of Empire 3.. *SIGN* hahaha
