2.0 out of 5 stars Not for AoE gamers 19 Sep 2011
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Short version: This is a crossover between Farmville and Age of Empires. If you like both, you'll like this, but if you don't, read on.

Long version: So far, no reviews have explained the differences between Age of Empires Online (AOEO) and regular Age of Empires (AOE) titles such as AOE3. Here's a summary of the differences:
1) As you can see from the in-game images, the realistic graphics are dropped in favor of a cartoonish style which reminds me of Warcraft 3. This is not in itself a bad thing, it comes down to opinion.
2) The historical period depicted in the game is roughly similar to the one used in AOE2. Thus, you will have archers, spearmen, swordmen, etc, but not musketeers or cannons as in AOE3. Again, whether this is a pro or a con comes down to opinion.
3) The realism is considerably lower than in previous AOE editions. For example, there are items which "summon" 5 archers to fight at your side, similarly to the cards that were sent from your home city in AOE3. Even though the effect is the same, the fact that these units appear out of nowhere detracts from the realism (as opposed from being shipped from your Home City in AOE3). Furthermore, there are spell-like items which enhance your units' damage for a period of time, etc. Therefore, this is no longer a half-realistic game but a typical real-time strategy (RTS) title in this respect.
4) The business model is vastly different from any previous AOE titles. This is no longer a pay-and-own game like AOE2 or AOE3, but rather a game where a good part of the content is free (more on that later), and you can buy specific parts of the game for smaller prices than a full-fledged game.

1.0 out of 5 stars Childish 13 Sep 2011
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I loved playing AoE for many years and took satisfaction from a meaningful strategy game that was based around historical fact. After waiting many years for AoE4 I was disappointed with this offering.

With AoE4 we now have more "fun" but this simply takes AoE away from its core values and leaves us with a new version of Settlers. The guidance rating has dropped from 12 to 3, which says much for the realism that AoE4 is lacking. Even my 10 year old son (who plays AoE3) considers the new game to be "for kids"!

Such a shame.

Thank you for this one but I download the game and put the code in and it was not that good because you have to buy other items to play it.

4.0 out of 5 stars AOE IS BACK! 31 Aug 2011
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I started playing aoeo last week and am hooked. (just bought upgrades)

It takes awhile to get used to, they have added alot "social" aspects to the game.

You can play normal single player and multi-player in a slightly different way.

You build your own city (this is outside of the actual game play)
In this city can buy upgrades and trade special items you find in games with other players.

In your city (and others) you will find quest givers. These quests are single player and co-op missions.

Im yet to try out the crete add on which is horde mode (waves of attacks).
You can play this again by yourself or with a friend.

There is also the spartan arena where you can play 1v1 or 2v2 pvp. This will be your standard multiplayer.

Hope this helps.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor advertising 9 Sep 2011
By Anon
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Due to a flaw in the advertising in this thing, upon loading up the game I was prompted to "UPGRADE NOW" on both civs, which I did. I then proceeded to buy the rest of the content before being made aware there is a "Season Pass", which would allow me to pay a straight up fee to get every bit of content released in the first 6 months.

ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! I've already purchased everything. There is no way to "upgrade" to the Season Pass to get 30% off. Due to an unresolved flaw in the management of MGS, I will only be able to get the Season Pass if I (that's right) pay not only for the content that isn't out yet, but for content I already have. It's really awful; telling us to "UPGRADE NOW" and afterwards making us aware we've been short changed.

I will not be buying any more of the content unless MGS allows be to purchase the Season Pass while taking into account what I've already purchased, hence the 1 star review.

1.0 out of 5 stars Money Making Scammers 20 Sep 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
First you have to pay initial price for the game and then for quests and add-ons you would be asked to pay for it or keep playing same mission hundred times to make enough coins to get over to the next step, while building your home city.
The graphics have been turned into cartoon chartacers type which makes it look quite childish.
If you get disconnection from internet during mid of your quest/mission, it just stops there and then you would have to restart the quest/mission again.

I was a big fan of Age of Empire games but after this release its impression is all down the drain.

1.0 out of 5 stars POOR SUPPORT FOR PC 21 Aug 2011
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Having owned and played earlier versions of this game I am very suprised and dissapointed with this version. Do not buy it if you want it for pc. instead download the free version online. The reason i say this is I have uptil now been unable to get any benefit from paying for the bought version, as the online system keeps crashing when i try to redeem the code.The website offers no help on the issue and as such i have access to the free version only,
When you pay for this product all you recieve is a 20 digit code for the upgrade on a card, however if the site isnt working properly then it is useless
