  • Excerpt: This is a decent digital version of Age of Empires II and its expansion, however it doesn’t offer much. I would suggest it to fans of the initial release, but others may find it to be a bit dated and buggy. It’s a release that simply repackages a classic, adding Steam’s modern conveniences without taking anything from the original.
  • Pros: Same gameplay you knew from the original release, Steam matchmaking
  • Cons: Buggy, lots of slowdown on multi-display systems

Age of Empires II: HD Edition (PC) - Review

VGChartz
13 April 2013
  • Excerpt: When it was released back in 1999, Age of Empires II was one of the finest real-time strategy games ever made. It is still to be found on many all-time top 50 game lists, including my own. Indeed, I put it behind only Warcraft III and AoEII’s half-sibling Age of Mythology on my list of the greatest RTS titles of all time. But times change, and standards and genres change with them. So does Age of Empires II retain its crown? In short, no, it does not.
