We all love the games where we can build masses of swords and shields and clash them in a 100+ warrior battle, but others also love the rifles and cannons of he western wars. This game offers a unique opportunity to use a variety of eras, cultures, locations and all have their own personalities.
This game takes a while to complete and endless hours of multiplayer,it is a strategy game so if the opposition keeps beating you...strategize, work around it like everyone else. The graphics are better, the music is better, the ambiance is ten times better and over all its rather old now but still one of my favorites on the PC.
Highly recommended but a rather good computer is needed for this to run smoothly without problems of lag or computer difficulties.
This is my first purchase from Amazon UK and they are fast.The game gets 4 stars and Amazon UK gets 5 stars from me...
Excuse me of my english....
Inside it contains:
Age of Empires III
Age of Empires: War Chiefs expansion
I was a little disappointed to discover it didn't come with Asian Dynasties, but again, I guess it was my fault for not thoroughly checking.
It runs great on my system with Shadows set to low, the graphics are still beautiful, considering my outdated rig, everything else on maximum, here are my specs:
Intel Pentium 4 3.2Ghz
This game ran amazingly well considering it's an RTS and they don't usually handle well on single core CPUs, but wow, was I impressed, I usually get 60+ fps during the start, my framerate drops throughout the game as I build more and more, and the game becomes cluttered, but even then, the lowest I've seen it drop to is 35 fps, which is still brilliant.
The game, and expansion, was fun and featured several campaigns which I enjoyed greatly, The Home town was also a great implementation, along with Ensemble Studios giving perks and disadvantages to each playable Civilisation, this caused me to think more about tactics, which involved logical planning, which was extremely clever.
The Skirmish mode was also fun. It is the feature I've used most in this game, You choose a Civ and fight various other Civs and customise your Cities through experience earned, You can play pre made maps or make your own using the Scenario editor, which, Like all of the 'Age' games, is fantastic, you can build anything from large forts, garrisoning hundreds, even thousands of troops, or you can build a small village, containing settlers and resources, all this achievable on your custom made maps, where you can make ANYTHING you see in the campaigns and throughout the rest of the game.
My only complaints are that in some places, it has been dumbed down from Age of Empires II, but more than makes up for it in others, also, apart from visuals, the combat hasn't improved much, my horde of 100 British musketeers and cannon still have to halt to kill a few measly settlers, rather than just charging through, slaughtering them with their bayonets/ swords.
My favourite Age of Empires game and RTS to date.
The mythology and Titans were a bit off to the originals, but this brings things back again.
Although some changes are not as likeable as others.
When collecting coins, woods or food the settlers do not return to town centre or anywhere to stock the goods. A bit too unrealistic.
The champaign was enjoyable and quite challanging at the highest difficulty level.
