This review is from: Age of Mythology (Video Game)
If I bought one strategy game a year, I would buy this....
The presentation of this game, from packaging to ingame graphics is outstanding. Its content makes it superior to all of the previous 'Age Of' games.
It is a huge leap from Age Of Empires 2, atleast a much bigger leap than Age Of Empires To Age Of Empires 2. Its graphics are nothing short of stunning, presented in 32-Bit colour at high resolutions, taking advantage of large monitors and modern graphics cards.
In one word the Gameplay is thrilling. There are three unique civilizations, each including their own gods and their own unique arsenal of archers, calvary and infantry.
After playing this game, you will also discover that you will have learnt a lot about the Greek, Egyptian and Norse Gods ;-)
Another new feature which made my jaw drop was the god powers. There are approximately 27 god powers. 6 of these are the main god powers, including metior storms, tornadoes and earthquakes!
And these aren't pathetic, A tornado can cast its devistation and suck up boats, buildings and infantry.
I could go on forever there is so much to comment on and so little to negatively comment on.
This is a masterpiece, as I said if you only buy one strategy game a year, this is the one to buy.
