= Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Age of Empires: Online (CD-ROM)
It almost looks like an AOE game. It may look cheap but youre only paying for a tiny part of the game. You only get 1 civ with this if you want others youll have to buy them too. If you want to play more than a few random quests youll have to buy more expansion packs.

The graphics are very poor and look like they belong on fb
The gameplay is still quite buggy. Your units dont do as you ask half the time. it can get very frustraiting.
The servers are not very good. If you dont live in the US youll lag trying to do just a 2 player coop. Not even worth trying 2v2
It lacks any real story to its single player quests.
It has a very poor AI so compensates by allowing the AI to "cheat" youll spend days/weeks getting items to make your troops stronger only for the AI to build "Elite" units that do 3x damage and have 3x health.

The game its trying to be a bit of everything and just fails to be good at any.

You can build and decorate your main city. It totally lacks any real customisation.A very limited amount of buildings. You cant even build roads and the few decorations costs more money.

It has a grindy quest rpg aspect. Again limited gear and quests that bug out when you try to play a coop with others.
The game is fun but only for a short time. Youll soon get bored of the same quest over and over again.

The pvp side is limited to just 1v1 and 2v2. No clans no lobby. you cant even choose who you play against.

I could easy go on for hours listing all the bad bit about the game.
There is so many better games out there. It should never have been released in this state its nowhere near ready.

Just looks like a quick cash in on an old title. A way to pull in some fast cash and move on. In its current state i cant see it lasting too long. The single player game is online only too so when the servers close your game is gone.
