No Fun Intended Shoo! You are debugging the crap outta me!

Pros:

  • The graphics are a very nice improvement over AoE2.
  • Better civilazation/empire building.
  • Rushes are a lot harder in this one.
  • More sources for food and gold.

Cons:

  • Nearly identical gameplay as AoE2.
  • No historically accurate campaigns (I am a history buff and therefore would at least like to see at least historical campaigns).
  • The better quality graphics seem to require a lot of hardware, more than I would have thought.
  • $50! There should be a warning on the box: If you played AoE2, just skip this one for now until you can pick it up for $20 on the bargain rack.

I never played AoE or AoEII... would this be the one to jump on? Hardware's not really an issue.

If you have not played either, you don't know what you are missing. However, you really had to jump on AoE when it first came out. It was amazing for that time. Yeah, take the plunge and try III.
