Age of Empires III: The Warchiefs

  • Excerpt: Last year November we could have fun with Age of Empires III. Although the game became a huge success, a lot of the hardcore fans missed “something”. Lets see whether The Warchiefs, the first expansion, can fill up that place in our heart.

  • Excerpt: Right to the meat, we all know the Age of Empires series is by Ensemble Studios a Microsoft games studio division, we all also know that "WarChiefs" is an expansion pack to Age of Empires III. What does it add to the game you ask you said right to the meat?
  • Pros: Graphics, gameplay, voice acting, hmm hard to pick the best parts of the game, this is a great strategy title.
  • Cons: There really are few and far between but alas the single player game is too short.

Mass Effect

  • Conclusion: High expectations put aside, Mass Effect is a good game worth experiencing. But Mass Effect is a game better experienced than it is played.
  • Pros: A story of such breadth could not have been accomplished in any other medium; beautiful presentation; some games hint at a vast universe, this games gives all of it to you; phenomenally unique and excellent soundtrack; the decisions you make will actually make you feel something.
  • Cons: Often terrible combat; glitches too numerous to enumerate; constantly stuttering framerate; almost identical structure to KOTOR; god-awful voice actor for the male Sheppard.

Age of Empires III: The WarChiefs

Inside Mac Games
20 July 2007
  • Excerpt: I had previously mentioned sweeping game mechanics changes often included in expansions. The WarChiefs has some, some sweeping, some not. Most dramatic is the inclusion of being a Revolutionary nation, rather than just a vassal state of a home nation in Europe. Does any of this sound familiar?

Age of Empires III: The WarChiefs

Auracore MediaWorks
26 February 2007
  • Summary: Finally puts an end to the AOE expansion curse.
  • Pros: Very nice and varied artistic elements; crisp graphics and neat effects; audio is adequate (much the same as Age of Empires III); adds a whole new dimension to an already excellent game.
  • Cons: Cut-scenes are a little laggy; graphics can be taxing on performance; hot keys have been annoyingly remapped.

  • Pros: Graphics, gameplay, voice acting, hmm hard to pick the best parts of the game, this is a great strategy title.
  • Cons: There really are few and far between but alas the single player game is too short.

Age of Empires III: The Warchiefs

GAMESQUAD
25 November 2006
  • Conclusion: While there’s nothing really revolutionary here, Age of Empires III: The Warchiefs is a solid expansion to an already excellent series. Gameplay remains pretty much unchanged, but the inclusion of the Native American tribes offers some interesting new opportunities and challenges—enough that veteran...
  • Pros: New factions add great value; nice printed manual; new units; warchief.
  • Cons: Little innovation in resource gathering; Iroquois feel like a European faction.
