How far we've come
16 August 2005 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

I got the demo of this game in Dec 1997 and for months me and my best friend did nothing but play it (yes, nothing but the demo). Some months later I actually saved up enough to buy the full game and at the time it seemed so cool and interesting. I'd never played anything like AoE (I had just gotten my first Windows PC round about then) and we were both totally addicted.

Today, it seems dated and dull. Weird isn't it? I have AoE2 and it is much better but that too already seems old hat compared with the screenshots of the forthcoming AoE3 (can't wait). Even with all the expansion packs available for this game it will never come close to the complexity of the second sequel or even Age of Mythology. Buy it if you can find it dead cheap tho.
