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

Play and Enjoy This Fine Strategy Game Offline or Even Online

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  • The game is too outdated

Play This 2-In-1 Strategy Game with Terrific Gameplay and Storyline

Age of Empires II Gold Edition is fantastic! It contains 2 CDs: The Age of Kings and The Conqueror's expansion pack. This game may be outdated, but every once in a while I play this RTS game and I am still enjoying it. It has an outstanding gameplay with 18 civilizations that I can play, and every one of those civilizations has their own unique abilities and strengths. For me, the graphics is not that astounding but not that bad either.

Age of Empires II Gold Edition is not just two games in a box. I like that it also has a special feature like recorded games. In addition, this RTS game has a brilliant storyline in the conquest mode. I am sure you will not get bored like me. This game is not that easy. Each campaign has about five parts, each of it becomes harder and harder. This game also has population limits. I think the maximum units are 200.

All in all, Age of Empires II Gold Edition is still an exceptional game. For real-time strategy gamers out there, you should not miss this one.

Pros

  • It has a good storyline
  • It has a challenging gameplay

Cons

  • Graphics is not the stunning

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.
