USER REVIEWS

One of the Best RTS Games Where You Can Create Your Own Personal Country

The game is awesome! The addition to the expansions of this game makes it much improved. The graphics is fixed, even when the cannons shoot, realistic smoke comes out. The game play is very polished. It doesn't use Internet connection to run this game.

The primary resources are food, wood and gold. You obtain experience killing enemy units, building systems, destroying structures and having a trading post. The campaign is prolonged especially with all the expansions.

Sound is great, and the online mode is flawless. The graphics have improved but did experience momentous lag and even the game freezes at times. Other than naval battle, the game played fine.

When I first started, I was very satisfied of the new features that added more intensity to the series. The game is mostly played, in the same way, as previous Age of Empire games, but with more intensity and strategy. While some users compare it to Age of Empires 2, the game has a lot in common with Age of Mythology. My favorite added feature is the new home city shipment system. It allows me to choose units, and upgrades.

Pros

  • Graphics is now in full 3D mode
  • The online mode is simply flawless

Cons

  • Need high specification requirements for PCs

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

By Chris Larrage

On Friday, April 25, 2014

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
