Summary: This is a great game! I just expected this HD re-release to have more improvements/changes then it does. If you loved playing this game back in the day, the fixed HD user interface, steam multiplayer and achievements are worth it imo.
Summary: Well, for the price that this was offered, I think it was a good deal. I love RTS games and AOE is one of the many that I like. As far as HD goes, I don't see how it has improved a lot? Well, I don't know what the original one looked like, but this one is playable.
Summary: while campaigns are fun and more intuitive, and give different endings, the campaign stories could be better with voice actors and a slide show like the original game. over all it's good buy if you played before and want to replay it on better computers or if a first time, then only buy it if you have time and money to spare.
Age of empires is back........But HD........REALLY?
30 December 2013
Summary: Age of Empires is back.......... And its the HD version. I loved this game when it came out. But, since the game came out windows has upgraded there OS many times leaving the game in the dust and often unable to play. My old Age of Empires 2 would always play but on the newer OS it would not always look the best. Leaving you with a very nasty reddish grass and purple ocean. The title states HD but honestly it looks exactly the same as when it came first out.
