This game is a very realistic game.

with very good graphics and special effects.

One downer is though you can only have 50 people for your population limit so you can only attack with 50 people at once then you have to wait for your people to die till you can build more people.

I would rate this game a 4 star because you can only train 50 people.

I WOULD recommend this game for you to buy.

On a scale of 1 to 10, this game would probably be rated a 9 or maybe for a real critical person a 8.

This game has many different historical races, including the Greeks, Assyrians, and Phoenecians. The graphics are, unfortunately rated a 7 or maybe even a 6 on a scale of one to ten.

There are many different units in a similarity to Starcraft or Warcraft. With each race having different attributes, this game has a WIDE range of difficulty, because each race is different.

Please buy this game because the producers really deserve it. If you arent really ready to commit to buying it yet, get the is one of the best demos i have. any questions? email me

The expansion pack to Age of Empires is one of the best games I've ever played. The micomanagement and A.I. have been signifacantly improved.

The new units counter existing units. The Armored Elephants are an upgrade of the War Elephants and has more armor, faster ROF, and siegecraft(increased attack vs. buildings).

The Camel Rider has an attack bonus vs. cavalry, horse archers, and chariots. The Fire Galley was added to give units with a lacking Iron Age navy a chance in the naval department.

The Scythe Chariot is an upgrade of the Chariot and has scythed wheels, damaging anything in its path.

It has the same bonus vs. Priests that chariots do, and the Scythe Chariot was added to give civs lacking good cavalry line an advantage in the cavalry department.

The Slinger was added to counter the famed archer rush and has siegecraft.

There's four new civs, the Macedonians, the Romans, the Palmyrans, and the Carthaginians.

There's four new techs, Logistics, Barracks units count as 1/2 a unit, Martyrdom, sacrifice Priest for instant coversion, Medicine, Priests faster conversion, and Tower Shield, +1 Piercing Armor.

This is a great expansion.

Gameplay: 10/10

Graphics: 10/10

Sound: 9/10

A.I.: 10/10

Interface: 9/10

Overall: 10/10

This is probably close to one of the best strategy games. if your the type of person who likes fast paced action then this aint for you.

Though it don't have super effects it's still a great game. there a 4 different modes that will keep you busy.

Plus you can play online against other people to see how good you are.

All up i give it 8.5 out of 10
