In your struggle for supremacy, you can use mythological creatures like Minotaurs and Cyclopses to bolster your armies' strength. Call upon the gods for assistance in flattening enemy towns with meteors or scattering opposing troops with lightning storms.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 7 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm a 21yr old university student. I used to love playing this game on my old PC. I've been itching to play it since and it's been 10 years.

The experience is far better than I originally remember, this is mostly due to the improved performance of new technology. I'd highly recommend playing this with a simple external mouse rather than Apple's trackpad/magic mouse because of how dated the game is. I've got fantastic use out of the game and it is definitely worth the price tag.

It has not crashed or had any negative results.

Delivery wise:
Estimated as a month, but it was closer to five working days (this was over xmas, and therefore doubly impressive).
Good packaging.

Overall:
I thought it was expensive (when compared to the price of the PC game, but you need to consider the game has been made accessible for Apple computers and was only intended for Windows).

6 month update:
I have played this game a hell of a lot. It's a nice contrast to the fast-paced online multiplayer games. I'd highly recommend the game, even with its price tag. The gameplay is smooth and offers a fantastic experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Age of mythology. 24 Sep 2005
Brilliant game. especially if you are into age of empires. Graphics are brilliant. The different soldiers are brilliant. soldiers like medusa,cyclops and achilles and many more. If you are buying this for a child they can learn about ancient myths while having fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic scenarios. 2 April 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Having played age of empires before and with somewhat of an understanding of the game play and structure, i found that this game was even better. The graphics are brilliant and the campaigns are really good to play, with interesting scenarios.

I'd highly recommend this game for age of empires fans and for beginners too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Age of Mythology(Mac) 9 Mar 2010
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I already had this game for a PC, so when I bought an Apple Mac computer I decided I needed this game for the Mac. I often play against my Grandaughter on line and we both thoroughly enjoy it. Would recommend it to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Age of Mythology (Mac) fantasic 3 Dec 2003
What a fantastic experience and I'm still going! The best game I've got in my MAC collection. Fantastic! I've just been on for a whole weekend but with "well timed saved games" I can come back to it when ever I want. The game provides the most realistic, beautiful, and captivating world I've ever seen in a real-time strategy game. I have both Age of Empires 1 & 2 but this is the biz compared with them! I advise skipping the other two and buying this (if you have a lot of spare time to escape!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Age Of Mythology Takes Over PreTeen 15 Dec 2009
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The game is absorbing over a long period, so it clearly plays well. If you're attracted by the description then the reality lives up to it.
My 12 year old son bought this with his own money because he enjoyed it so much at a friends.
The friend and his neighbour have been playing it (PC version) regularly for the last 9 months, my son would play it for hours every night if I let him (I don't.) My husband also enjoys it. I would like my family back, but must admit that it appears to be mentally quite challenging and far superior to many other computer games said son has played. The graphics also look pretty good - which I gather is important.
