Product Description

Product Description

We first set out to reproduce the rich detail of Age of Empires II: Age of Kings. As we strove to make the fascinating Age of Empires III time period come alive, that goal quickly evolved: We at Ensemble Studios wanted to create the best-looking game ever. From the stunning water effects to the hundreds of units battling on-screen, you'll feel like you're a part of the action in the New World. Review

With all the talk of next generation consoles it’s somewhat ironic that the most graphically impressive new game is actually PC real-time strategy title Age of Empires III. The last game in the series was a rather clinical looking 2D isometric game but this new iteration features some of the most complex, organic looking 3D graphics ever seen on any system.

Thankfully the gameplay appears just as developed as you take control of a civilisation from around the time that Age of Empires II left off in the 16th century and continues up to 1850, as you battle to take control of the New World. Gameplay is actually split between the Americas though and your home city back in Europe, which you must also maintain and upgrade in order to keep the populace happy.

The most exciting element though is undoubtedly the new combat system, where the dull and mechanical "tank rushes" of the previous games have been replaced with stunning looking battles of gunpowder and sword blades as you fight angry natives and rival colonisers.

As is demanded of any PC game nowadays there’s also a cool sounding multiplayer mode, with the eight different civilizations you can control allowing for a large variety of different play styles. That’s if you can actually gather your wits enough to form a strategy and stop ogling the frankly incredible looking graphics. -- Harrison Dent

After having played this game for the past few days, I can tell you all that this game is simply a natural continuation of the legendary Age Of Empires series. I have played the previous two and their addons for years, and this game is an improvement in virtually every way.
Graphically this game is beautiful and some of the effects are just wonderful. The weapons feel powerful and the ship -v- ship battles are just stunning. My graphics card is a 256 MB Radeon X600 and on any setting this game works well.
Playing the game is very interesting. There are now limits on the number of some things you can build - such as ships. The villages are now much better, and they do a lot with out being told. if they are idle and there is something obvious to do nearby - they will do it.
Home cities are a wonderful advancement in the game giving it a much more satisfying feel. The more you play the game the better the things you can have sent to you after every few minutes in the game. You gain experience for gathering resources etc., and then this allows you to ship in some extra coin, or eventually a mini army!!!
The campaigns are easy to get into and follow a nice family tale where you can somewhat empathise with the leaders you control. The objectives for the missions are no longer - kill everyone - but there are more specific objectives - one mission is simply to gain experience!
Though most of this game is strong, the one futile thing is treasures. Dotted around the map there are small treaures guarded by, say, a pack of wild bears. After using your explorer to kill the guardian, you can take the bounty - this is often a very small amount of coin etc. However, sometimes you get rewarded with a special warrior or some settlers, so its not all bad!

Age of Empires III, for me, personally is the best strategy game I have ever played. Ever since spending hours upon hours on it's predecessor, Age of Empires: The Age of Kings, I thought that it wouldn't be as enjoyable to play, but I was joyfully proven to be wrong. There has been some massive improvements in AOE3, the graphics being the major one, everything is beautifully finished to incredible detail, environments look realistic and like they are "lived" in by your town, soldiers, buildings, ships are all fantastically brilliant to look at. The game play is the next best thing, the research that has been put into each individual civilization is amazing, each one has its own perks, its own best units, its best buildings, you yourself are the main explorer in the New World when you start a new game, you are able to build Trading Posts in order to build alliances with the Natives, and then able to improve them to benefit each other, you are sent shipments from your home town when you reach a certain level of experience which can contain, units, food, equipment, upgrades and so much more, and you get to choose what you want before you start the game, it's incredible how much effort has been put into this game to make it seem like you really are explorers trying to make a new life in the New World!! The campaign missions are excellent, you won't want to stop playing, each mission you learn more ways of being able to survive, or conquer, it's your choice! The online multi-player is also a thing of brilliance, the amount of fun you can have with this game with other friends just makes it a 100 times better from when you play on your own!Read more ›

I rarely get to play on this game, owing to my brother being on it 24/7. He is completely addicted to AOE3, and it is kind of growing on me too.
I really don't mind about the game graphics, although I must say that these have been upgraded. I care more about the gameplay and ease of use than about what you see if you just stare at the screen.
For those who don't know, AOE kind of carved out the C&C genre of games all by itself, joined by the Total War series later. This is the latest of the AOEs, chronologically. A far cry from AOE2, where there is a hint of guns in the hands of the bombards and the hand cannoneers, now you have armies made up of musketeers and field guns.
It is very different from the hack-and-slash of the other ones (although these have not been totally abandoned - guns don't work close up and those bayonets look so cool) because you will now, instead of rushing in with swords faling, withstand an enemy charge with a sneer and a bullet. Your armies, while not being stationary, will find they have to move less to engage an enemy.
One of my favourite things in this game is the concept of a home city which aids you in battle and can be improved to enable it to help more. This, aside from being a great idea, ties together your random battles so that you can progress to harder and harder ones, giving the sense of working with just one thing. It forms a connection with your army that you just don't get in other games.
This is, I think, the best Age of Empires so far, and a contender for the best C&C game as well.
