AOE II Gold Edition is an amazing RTS game. It is a massive step up from its predecessor. Most of the gamers also compare this game to “Civilization." For me, AOE II is more about building up your armies and lots of combat unlike “Civilization” where players can beat up their enemies peacefully as they choose.

What I like about this RTS game is that it has a lot of playing options that makes this game more pleasurable. I am not stuck with the same routine. I can play multiplayer mode over the Internet or LAN. I can also play single-player mode where I can choose a map where I want to play. The sounds works fine for me. It does not have any irritating background music which is a plus for me. The graphics looks remarkable, too.

All in all, AOE II Gold Edition is an excellent game and very addictive as well. It will keep you glued to your PC.

Pros

  • It has a nice graphic layout
  • It has a multiplayer mode

Cons

  • The game is too outdated

Be a legendary leader and march into battle with this strategy game

I just love strategy games. One of my favorites is Age Of Empires II Gold Edition. This game is set during the Middle Ages, and you can choose from different civilizations and conquerors. For the conquerors, your choices are the Huns, Koreans, Mayans, Aztecs and Spanish. There are also 13 civilizations namely Saracens, Japanese, Goths, Turks, Britons, Byzantines, Mongols, Teutons, Chinese, Celts, Franks, Persians and Vikings. You can also select between single player and multiplayer mode depending on your preference. The goal of this strategy game is quite simple. You need to assemble and train an army then fight the enemies. But first, you have to accumulate various resources. Each civilization has their positive and negative points. This is where you need to strategize in order to win. You can also have alliances with other players to strengthen your army further. Some characters in the game are taken from history such as Genghis Khan, Joan of Arc and many others which makes it more enticing to play. Age Of Empires II is also divided into different time periods which offer more diversity to the game.

Pros

  • An expansion pack is available
  • Select different civilizations to play with

Cons

  • Game may appear boring for others

Go back in time and play this exciting strategy game

I am not a fan of strategy games because I find it difficult to play. But when I was told that Age Of Empires II was a great game, I decided to give it a try. Since I have not tried the first version, I encountered difficulty during the start of the game. On the other hand, what I like about it is that there is an option to choose what civilization I want to control. I can choose between Saracens, Franks, Britons, Goths, Vikings, Chinese Byzantines, Celts, Teutons, Mongols, Japanese, Persians and the Turks. To be able to go into battle, you first need to collect resources. By doing so, you can recruit your armies and train them at the same time. If you are familiar with characters like Genghis Khan, Joan of Arc and William Wallace, you will truly appreciate this game. You can play as the legendary leader in this strategy game. Age Of Empires II looks very realistic and fun to play.

Pros

  • Fun to play with excellent graphics
  • Choose from single or multiplayer game

Cons

  • Some may find it too old

This game is a real-time strategy game for PC in which you have different cultures to select from with the aim to overcome your opponents. This version includes all the features from the original game and also new improvements with this expansion.

This game represents a walk through history, learning about historical characters and battles. It allows you to choose between 13 different civilizations and make them evolve from the falling of Rome to the Middle Ages, adding new discoveries and conquering the resources of your enemies.

Gameplay

Once the download completes, you will see that this game is in the usual style of these kinds of games. First of all you have a main building, which depending on your civilization, represents the center of your power. Use your villagers to gather resources and build new constructions to create new technology and a fearsome army to fight against your opponents.

Each civilization in this game has unique units with their strong and weak points. These features determine your strategy and style of playing. Take advantage of your army and overcome your enemies with surprise attacks. You can also play with diplomacy by offering truces and negotiating alliances.

Game modes

You have 2 different game modes that will entice you to spend hours and hours playing. The campaign mode is for a single player. In this mode you will play as Genghis Khan, Saladin or Joan of Arc, amongst other historical characters. You need to accomplish the objectives of the different scenarios to fulfill the campaigns completely.

In the multiplayer mode you will be able to play against different users or against the AI in certain stages. You can also create a random map and play different modes like deathmatch, in which you need to overcome all the players or regicide, in which you need to eliminate your rival’s monarch.

Alternatives

For example, you have two interesting alternatives to this game. Stronghold is a good option to keep an eye on, as it is a strategy game based on real historical events. Empire Earth III, on the other hand, adds a little fiction to the game style and will lead you into the future.
