Age of Empires III is a strategy video game like War Craft. This game is developed and released by Microsoft Game studios. It is available for PC and Mac version.

If you are looking for an incredible and good looking strategy game, well, this one is right for you. Age of Empires III is one of my favorite games for about two years now. I play this game three times a day. I enjoyed playing this series because of the graphics and the music of it is awesome.

I previously thought this was boring, but I was wrong with that. Empire III has more civilizations, better gameplay, and good sound track. The concept of the game is unique. I think the next series would be even better.

Empires III is popular with teenagers now. Many kids are enjoying playing it because of the great visual of the game. If you are a big fan of this game then you will probably enjoy this new series. It offers a lot than the other series. This game has plenty of depth and appeal. For those looking for an extraordinary strategy game fight and some historical flavor, Age of Empire III has it all!

Pros

  • Has plenty of content and modes to play
  • Excellent graphics and visuals if you have a fast system

Cons

The New World is yours to take it in Age of Empires III

The king of the strategy games is back again to the computer. Although Age of Empires III had been released a long time ago, this edition keeps being a good addition to the series in many aspects. The graphic aspect has been upgraded from the previous version offering now a full 3D design. The gameplay keeps the classic rules of the series, real time strategy basing its action in the resources you have collected during the game. The modes included are also the same as in any other RTS, the single player campaign mode and the multiplayer, with the possibility of playing online and offline matches against friends and other players.

The campaign mode will depend on the faction you choose from the firstly available teams. Each army is customizable, and the options they grant are based on the main features of their troops. With this, I want to tell that the cultures available have weak and strong points, and depending on your game style it is better to choose one over the other. This is a point to have in mind in the multiplayer mode, since you must get over your weaknesses for winning the game. Enjoy the Age of Empires again and conquer the new world in front of you.

Pros

  • Graphics are really well designed
  • Customizable troops and good RTS gameplay
  • Long single player campaign mode

Cons

  • Lacks the variety of its later expansion packs

The King of RTS Game is back and better Than Ever!

Age of The Empire 3 is a game I grew up with. I had loads of fun playing this for very very long hours. In my opinion, this game is amazing. It has fantastic graphics and lot of new and cool features and upgrades which added more excitement and entertainment in the game. Moreover, the graphics are very enchanting and beautiful. Also, the visuals and music of it are good.

After having used this game for the last 8 months, I can say that this game is simply a normal extension of the Age of Empires games. I have used the last version of this game, and I think this version is an progress in virtually every way. The weapons are very powerful, and the battles are very stunning. All I can say is that this game is really good. It is one of the best strategy games I have ever played.

Pros

  • Key improvements over previous games in series
  • Lively new civilizations and lots of new gameplay

Cons

  • No cross-platform multiplayer support provided

The graphics have been greatly updated since the last edition. Age of Empires III presents detailed effects and graphics that make it more realistic. It runs smoothly with a robust system, but if you don't have a powerful computer don't worry, you can turn your settings down in order to run it better.

The sound section has some new details that gamers will love. The quality of the effects is outstanding; cannonballs, the shots of the musketeers or the different sound of blades shocking are really impressive. The soundtrack also has memorable music that will place you in to the culture.

Alternatives

The RTS genre includes many PC titles and their themes are diverse. You can try Age of Mythology: The Golden Gift if you want something more fantastic and detailed. Stronghold Crusader is also a good alternative and you will be able to know the process of the Crusades to the east of the European continent on the Holy War age.
