It's an improvement over Age of Empires and a great sequel. In improving the original game it doesn't introduce elements which ruin the feel of the original or just don't fit into the game however it makes sure it adds enough things to make it seem an original game rather than just a giant patch for the original. The timeframe is different to the original and this is reflected in the civilizations you see, the look of the units, the look of the buildings, technologies and a variety of other things. Personally I preferred the setting of the original Age of Empires, it was a time period I always found interesting in history and I felt slightly more ... Read the complete review

This is probably one of my favourite PC games of all time. It such an entertaining game, and can keep you occupied for hours! So what's it all about? Well, Age of Empires 2 is a strategy game. You start with nothing (usually) and try and build up the biggest armies to destroy your enemies! In the standard game, you usually start with a town centre, a handful of villiagers and some resources nearby. You also start of in the Dark Age. Basically, you have to build up your village. You start by gathering in food (forage bushes, farms, sheep and deer), gold, stone and wood. These allow you to create people or build. For example, you need to collect wood ...

I was never too fond of this game to begin with, i never could put my finger on why however. I had been an avid Age of Empires (AoE) player with the previous title and its expansion, the Rise of Rome (RoR). I suppose it was quite a leap from the original Age of Empires, that was probably what i didn't like. Firstly, the original AoE had a population limit of 50, now this was fairly annoying, but you probably wouldn't need more than 50 units in order to destroy your enemy, luckily in the network mode of the game, there is the option to have a pop limit of 200. AoE II has a much larger population limit, as units were less powerful on their own, meaning you had ... Read the complete review

I'm not a huge RTS game fan generally, but Age of Empires 2 is a game that managed to sustain my attention for a lot longer than I expected. If you thought the first game was loaded with features, you've seen nothing yet, for this really ramps up the accessibility, making this a game that hardcore RTS fans and newbies to the genre alike can enjoy. Given that it's now about a decade old and dirt cheap, there's no excuse not to pick it up. As someone who doesn't generally like RTS, this isn't a game I play that often because I've already beaten it, but the fact that it is strategy-based of course means there are numerous ways to defeat the enemy. Also, some of ... Read the complete review

Age of empires. I love this game and always will! Although sometimes annoying and can get a little boring for me. ---Gameplay--- The gameplay for age of empires 2 is very interesting and really brings the player into the game. The player must think about strategy and resources, his allies and his enemies and there locations on the map. There are many different factions the player can choose from. And in these factions different units to choose from. Each faction has different culture...Buildings are built differently depending on your culture. Each culture has a special unit that can be trained exclusively by them. A revolutionary concept for the age of ... Read the complete review
