Game Over Online

Excerpt: It’s been said that hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, so just imagine what kind of trouble you could find from a pissed off god. That’s the immediate premise of the sequel to last year’s acclaimed RTS game, Age of Mythology.
Excerpt: Age of Mythology was like Marmite to strategy gamers: you either loved it or hated it. AoE purists bemoaned the Myth units for making the game too one sided whilst the more tactical gamers enjoyed the Myth addition for the extra longevity that they could produce in battles.
Excerpt: Age of Mythology: The Titans is the first expansion pack for Age of Mythology, Ensemble Studios' real-time strategy game released last year. The Titans begins where Age of Mythology ended. You play now as Kastor, son of Arkantos, the hero of the original game's campaign.
Summary: Expansion packs are supposed to make games bigger and better. It seems the Age of Mythology folks were most definitely trying for “bigger” in bringing us the Titans, the latest addition to the Age of Mythology world.
Excerpt: Genre: Real Time Strategy Publisher: Microsoft Developer: Ensemble Studios Release Date: September 30, 2003 Buy 'AGE OF MYTHOLOGY: The Titans': PC Kerplunk! That’s the sound of another Real Time Strategy game hitting the bargain rack at your favorite store. But not this one…no not this one.
Conclusion: In closing, I recommend this expansion to anyone who has enjoyed the original game. The Titans is not a stand-alone expansion pack, which means you'll have to own a copy of the original, and it retails for roughly thirty bucks.
Pros: Great mission design, Titans add nice flair, good difficulty balancing, story, polished AI;
Cons: Poor unit balancing, short single-player campaign.
The Titans is recommendable to any fan of Age of Mythology, particularly those who liked the idea of the game but maybe had trouble getting over the learning curve.

Summary: The expansion pack to last year's outstanding real-time strategy game Age of Mythology includes some big, new additions. Literally. Appropriately titled "The Titans," this add-on lets you summon enormous monstrosities to support your armies in the latter stages of a battle.
Featuring lots of interesting, inventive design decisions, plenty of fun-to-use units, and tons of variety, Age of Mythology is the last real-time strategy game you'll need for a long time.

Summary: Ensemble Studios has long since made a name for itself with its extremely popular Age of Empires series of real-time strategy games, so the company's latest game, Age of Mythology, seems risky.
Conclusion: As far as expansions go, The Titans is an example of how this kind of thing should be done, but, more to the point, it's got big chunky polygon things belting each other to pieces *shrieks like a little girl such is his happiness* .
Conclusion: Of course, Titans also builds upon the strong single-player game in Age of Mythology, picking up where the story of the original game ended. The Atlanteans have spurned the gods of Olympus and started worshipping Chronos and his ilk, and hatched a cunning plot to free the Titans from their prison in...
