I wrote a review for this a while back, and I can say with confidence many issues have been sorted out, but some are still persistent.

If you have never played this game, I am going to say right now to buy this game and play it. The campaign and its storyline is great, the factions are unique and well fleshed out and balance, for the most part, is achieved with some minor discrepencies/exploits which with experience can be learned to be countered.

I will say that the game is not in its glory days anymore as this IS a re-release of a fairly old title. But the multiplayer is also active enough to have a competitive community and there is a revival in the scenario community to experience a taste of the legacy of AoM mapmakers, I suggest looking on http://aom.heavengames.com/downloads/ for more or the Steam workshop downloads provided.


But lets start with the actual meat of the game for anyone reading for determining whether to buy this:

The Extended Edition brings many new improvements over old Age of Mythology and the Titans expansion included, water and other graphics are overhauled and improved significantly. Graphics in general have been improved over the original and the game looks much more vibrant and detailed. This makes playing the singleplayer campaign, which is still one of the better campaigns of an RTS I have played, much more enjoyable.

A new online server is also available for multiplayer gameplay and while its nowhere even close to the glory days of ESO in terms of activity and the amount of scenario makers, some old faces are there both in competitive gameplay and with old mapmakers, and some newer map makers such as myself have been sprouting up. In terms of connection these days it really depends on whose actually in the game but as long as you're computer isn't a toaster your connection and running of this game should go forward without a hitch.

However there is still some bugs that are highly irritating that remain. Desync errors still happen too frequently for my tastes and this wouldn't be so much a problem if it didn't lower the rating of those involved in ranked matches. When someone is on the verge of victory and then a desync error occurs to make them lose rating... its understandable someone would be angry.

There is also more visible lag and connection issues between players then there was on the old AoM in certain instances, such as on certain scenarios or with people with very bad connection to begin with. And the Extended Edition is notable in how it actually lags your computer- some of us may remember we could browse the internet with Age of Mythology running in windowed mode or running other programs while we wait for a game; while this isn't prevented and is still possible the speed of which you do so is stifling and I would not recommend it at all now. (Nor would I recommend it in matches even back then, but if you're in lobby just idling, waiting for your friend to host that game...)

I suggest if you are buying this, do not play on your toaster or similar dinosaur computer, this is an updated version of Age of Mythology meant to be played on semi modern machines.

And as for scenario editors who wish to return to making maps for this game: The online multiplayer community is in desperate need of scenario revival. There is scenarios still being played from time to time but the newer population of competitive players is either unaware of most of the maps or simply do not host them, mostly the former. As for the editor itself, for all intents and purposes its more or less the same as what we know, but there is some notable differences now.

The differences boil down to some old trigger techniques not working, and now causing horrible lag. The old trick of looping Move Army To to move your spawned units to a location, looping it within the trigger editor now causes horrible lag and no longer just simply makes them keep moving there. It acts as if the computer stops their units and tells them to move there, acting as if the loop was just restarting and stopping the order instead of merely continuing it as it did in the past.

There is also UI changes to the editor, and while the function is largely the same it takes a bit getting used to. I can say with confidence though the editor is still fairly user friendly and easy to learn, though trying to find experienced mappers to help you with your project is a little difficult in terms of looking on the lobby- you'll have to consult various forums like AoM heaven or pitch it on the steam forums for this game somewhere. I myself can help with things too, and even old legends like Nottud are still around if you look...

So it boggles down to this, overall: Should you buy this game if you are new, and should you buy this game if you already have age of mythology, the original and its expansion, to relive your nolstalgia?

If you are new, refer to the top. Yes.
If you are an old and musty returning player like me, Yes, but don't expect it to be total brass and shine throughout the entire game. There is some grime to be worked out with this still but I can say with confidence there has been legitimate work and attention on this game to improve it and fix bugs.

(p.s Potato, if you review my review im going to shoot you and feed you to a chimera, not only was your review pointless, it was awful in its critique and if anything uninformative. No one cares about grammar to that extent, it's all about presentation, and the clarity of my review was fine. That is all :D )

There are many features which make the game great. I'm gonna name a few:

- beautiful randomly generated maps. You can learn everything you need to know about the maps in 2 hours, but even after 30 days of playing they will still surprise you.
- the playable cultures excel with their diversity and fascinating mythology. Unleash terrifying mythical brutes such as the einherjer which will tear your enemies apart.
- Advancing on the map with your siege army and military camps adds a lot to the 'all out war' feeling to the game.
- The soundtrack, the graphics and the overall design make for a true atmospheric environment.

Age of Mythology was the game that initally ignited my passion for online games. It's hard for me to be objective, because I share so many glorius childhood memories with this classic jewel. The main reason I bought the extended edition for steam were simple: The game hasn't aged and they gave access to online-playing. The former AoM servers were unfortunately shut down which was a huge bummer at the time.

This "upgrade" is appalling. The game looks as if no effort was put into updating the game for HD resolutions. The GUI is huge and, if anything, looks even worse than the original AoM. The textures they have replaced look horrible and out of place and even the Campaign screen is still in 4:3! This is very, very poor work from Skybox. Hidden Path did a much better job updating AoE 2 to HD and in my opinion should take over this too. This version doesn't even seem like the same game I loved 10 years ago. All I wanted was the experience of the original with slightly improved graphics. This didn't even meet that expectation. That's exactly what I got with AoE 2 HD and then more content thrown on top.

My advice? Get the original. Even at £6.49 I feel as if this was a waste of money. I couldn't even play 20 minutes before quitting. The game probably runs just fine, if not better than before, but Skybox seem to have gone out of their way to make it look even worse than it did originally. The fancy new lighting and shadows do not make up for anything.

This game is heavily broken and unusable.

I purchased it believing it would be a functioning, HD remake of the original game and expansion. Boy was I wrong.

-Singleplayer
The game has all the features of the original. A level designer, a campaign, etc. The problem is, these can't be enjoyed in this game. The game performs very poorly, giving a massive amount of frame drops with a low framerate to begin with. There is also a noticeable amount of control latency, from all the input devices I tested. The game also crashes somewhat frequently.

-Multiplayer
The community is pretty much dead here. Why? That would be because the game does not function during multiplayer. The servers used are very unstable, and give very choppy gameplay. Playing in multiplayer with any more than 2 players causes even more severe framerate and latency issues than playing singleplayer.

-Other issues, possibly something wrong outside of game
Saving. It can't be done. I've started many games, tried to save, and then my game completely froze. I then attempted to contact the support for this game from their website, only to be greeted with automated emails telling me that my problem should be resolved thanks to "given information" that was never given to me, and that if it wasn't, I should reply to the email for more assistance. After attempting to have an actual response given to me but receiving only the mentioned emails, I decided to reply to one, thinking that it might get a response. However, it has been approximately 3 months since then, with no response at all.

The previous points are but a small amount of the trouble I went through with this game. There are many issues with it beyond what is detailed here, and these issues render it practically unplayable.


Overall, I highly recommend not buying this game.

The new art drawn for this game is terrible and jarring, do not approve. The interface is much uglier as well, and the online componenet appears to have barely any players on it.

The network code is beyond horrendous, much, much worse than the originals. Unless the ping between you is perfect, then the games animations become choppy and ugly, affecting playabillity.

It annoys me to no end that in the old version of Age of Mythology games between people with 200 ping were perfectly playable, and they are not in this. Very disappointed. Just play the old version peer to peer. The engine could already do 1080 fine anyway with one little tweak. The graphicical enhancements made here dont justify the price.

Love the original game by the way.

Thumbs up.
NIce RTS game. I'm not usually into RTS, but I had fun with this game and the story it told.
Usually RTS games don't have much of a story so it was interesting.

AoM is a good game. When I saw the extended edition on steam, I bought it for me and my friends. And I regret it.

Problem: They messed up badly with the multiplayer network (Doesn't matter how fast your connection is and how beasty your computer is). Even if played via lan, the lag totally kills the fun, and at least for myself and everyone I know, makes the multiplayer beyond frustrating.

-If you intend to play the campaign and singleplayer ai skirmishes only, go ahead and enjoy. HOWEVER,
-If you want to buy this for the MULTIPLAYER, - DON'T BUY THIS! (unless you can put up with massive lag)

I will change this review once they improved the multiplayer performance ( Which probably won't happen since they didn't already do anything until now about this known issue)
