    "Age of Empires is a series of computer video games developed by Ensemble Studios and published by Microsoft Game Studios. The first title of the series was Age of Empires, released in 1997. Since then, seven titles and three spin-offs have been released. The titles are historical real-time strategy games, and their gameplay revolves around two main game modes: random map and campaign. The games are set amidst historical events. Age of Empires focused on events in Europe and Asia, spanning from the Stone Age to the Iron Age; the expansion game explored the formation and expansion of the Roman Empire. The sequel, Age of Empires II: The Age of Kings, was set in the Middle Ages, while its expansion focused on the Spanish conquest of Mexico. The subsequent three games of Age of Empires III explored the early modern period, when Europe was colonizing the Americas and several Asian nations were on the rise. A spin-off game, Age of Mythology, was set in the same period as the original Age of Empires, but focused on fictional elements of Greek, Egyptian, and Norse mythology."

    I think that it is a very fun game. Pretty much standard RTS gameplay but very accessible and addicting. :thumbup1:

    I have only played AOE 1 and 2 Gold Edition.

    It was pretty amazing, plus the cheats where damn cool!, i still remember most of them...

    I've been waiting for AOE 3 Gold with both expansion packs to go down in price.
    Its sad that Ensemble has been disbanded...

    Never played any of them.
    but don't get me wrong, I play Medieval II Total War sometimes, but I play the M2TW Kingdoms expansion more, which has four geographical areas, set in the High-Late middle ages. There's the Teutonic Campaign, which includes the Teutonic Order, Denmark (w00t the best), Novgorod, etc. The Britannia campaign focuses on the British Isles, with England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, and Norway. Crusades obviously takes place in the Holy Land, with the Principality of Antioch, Kingdom of Jerusalem, Egypt, etc. The Americas Campaign is again an obvious location, and includes all colonizing powers, and indian tribes.

    Kind of a mouthful but a great game!

    Italy isn't even included in the Kingdoms expansion, and in the origional, it takes FOREVER to get to the 1400s. Assasians Creed is boss


    well, each to their own. Empire Total War is AWESOME. I have it too, but it kinda lags, so I don't play it a lot, but it is excellent-the only thing is the cannons suck pretty much, but that's mostly how it was against other infantry.
