Customer Review

3.0 out of 5 stars Fails to engage my interest, 13 Nov. 2011
This review is from: Age of Empires III (PC) (Video Game)
At the heart of a good game, to my mind, is a good progression. This game gives a half-hearted tutorial and then basically tells you to just try things out. What follows then is an annoying sequence of games which never let you slowly develop a settlement and then attack your enemy, but rather in each case throw you up against an enemy without having a chance to develop at your own pace. Settlers 5 would be a perfect example of how a game campaign should work, Age of Empires 3 seems to be just an unstructured mess, forcing the player to mess around with irritating game play such as sending items from the home city (why bother?). There's not a real sense of achievement that Settlers gave in developing technologies and new types of units and housing. It's just all dull I'm afraid, but perhaps people like it for the multiplayer side, it's only the campaigns that would interest me.
