  • Excerpt: How does that advice go? “If you can’t beat them, join them”? In the case of Big Huge Games and their Rise of Nations series, they created a nice competitor to Microsoft’s Age of Empires III franchise. But it looks like both sides worked things out, and Big Huge Games has teamed up with Microsoft to work on the latest Age of Empires III expansion, The Asian Dynasties.

Age of Empires III: The Asian Dynasties Review

GameSpot
23 October 2007
  • Excerpt: Since Age of Empires debuted in 1997, the series has grown to become one of the pillars of real-time strategy gaming. Its success is in part due to the way the series has shifted historical periods. The first game covers antiquity, from the Stone Age to the Roman Empire. Meanwhile, Age of Empires II focuses on the medieval era. And 2005's Age of Empires III is about the era of European exploration and colonization.
  • Pros: Three interesting new Asian civilizations and campaigns, New twists on the familiar Age of Empires gameplay, Wonders make a return to the series, Ninjas
  • Cons: The campaigns feature familiar plot twists, Audio mostly recycles existing Age music
