I wish Steam could send my money back, because this game is not working for at least 6 months.
And this one is very expensive.
Do not buy until they fix the problems, you cannot even open the game.

When they first announced the upcoming dlc, I was joyful, the AoE 2 dlc was pretty good, but when it came out, i lost all will to purchase it, not even only that, it also broke the game. Ever since the dlc came out, I haven't been able to play a single AoM game online with friends, either it won't connect or it will lag so bad we just ragequit.
A real shame, I think i'm just going to go back to Age of empires 1 if i want to play with cavemen, at least that game doesn't lag in multiplayer...

Should be a good game but is ruined by how badly the ai was revamped in this patch; the ai either cheats ridiciulously or is completely useless. Even on normal the ai will field legions at you at 10 minutes.

A good game.

While there has been a lot of hate for the updated edition, and I partially agree with this, Age Of Mythology hasn't got any worse. Atlanteans, Egyptains, Greeks and the Norse still have 1 new unit each for each category. Surely this is something to celebrate?

While the Chinese campaign and race on the hole is a flop, and most are remodles of old units, it still shows potential for the game itself, as the cretors are more likely to create another expansion that could potentially be huge for the game's development.

-This is an excellent game with an amazing soundtrack. It offers a slightly simpler and more "noob friendly" version of Age of Empires. Pathfinding, response times, and many other elements of the gameplay are improved from Age of Empires. The Campaigns are great and offer a lot of playing time while still being enjoyable the second or third time through. It is very fun to play by yourself, with friends, or online.
-I will admit that the HD edition has a variety of problems including extremely common disconnects in local games. It is kinda sad that they would charge so much for the Chinese expansion, but it is a good game, nonetheless.
-I have played this game long before it was released on steam and I highly recommend it.

This is a great game for the old school strategy games lovers and especially those that used to play the original Age of Mythology and want to relive their childhood. However there have been some issues that force me to not recommend this game.

The good
  • The game is what it calls itself. It's the classic Age of Mythology with improved visuals, which to me are a welcome change
  • Golden gift campain. I never had the chance to play this campain, nor was I aware of it's existance, so it was a fun bonus
  • The game supports the workshop

The bad
  • There has been an issue to A LOT (including me) users where the game doesn't launch at all (redownloading, verifying integrity of game cache doesn't seem to work)
  • Multiplayer can be very laggy, making it super annoying to play with your friends
  • You are basically paying for the old Age of Mythology with some make-up on

Value for money
Assuming you won't have an issue with running the game, it is still fairly expensive (Standing on 27.99€) for just a re-skin. If you could find it being on a 50% sale, you could consider getting it. 75-80% sale is totally worth it

Final thoughts
If I were you I would not buy Age of mythology: Extended Edition as long as the issue of the game not starting still exists

The game is just great (not what I can say about this particular version because I can't play it, it just keeps crashing), but in general, the game is just great. It can teach you about different mythologies, which is very culturally pleasing (even though some things are not very accurate).

I do really like this game. It has served me well since childhood and continues to bring back good times!
Though multiplayer is bugged, it can still be worked out by remembering to save games and load them again once a crash occours.

One last comment: Who the hell picked the names for the soundtrack files?! Hot damn that is funny.

Steam\Steamapps\Common\Age of Mythology\Sound\xpack\xtaunts\en\999 theme.mp3 Fantastic!

I cannot recommend this version of the game. Currently needs a lot of fixing before I can retracked it.

The amount of glitches present at current time is just staggering, not just the visual kind where a wall is half blurry half well textured either. The largest example I just experienced from the original campaign Fall of the Trident: chapter 12 on October 19th 2016 is where some of my units got suck inside my town centre. Before this units got stuck on unwalkable parts of hills as well (still only FotT). Not to mention the visual upgrade is slapdash with Erebus being so dark I thought the greys and blacks got crushed. The added Bloom didn't help either.
Have yet to try out the other 2 campeigns, and I do not own the Chinese expansion, although from reading others experience I'm not missing much. Also the rebalance to units feels wrong to me.

Improved graphics and textures, it was released a bit too early carrying plenty of bugs, a practice which has become all too frequent in this years of post-release "patches" and DLC. Felt unpolished in the beginnig.

The new Chinese Civ feels a bit too strong and I would love to have had at least another 3 or 4 civs:

India, Meso-America , The Zulus and the Siamese for example.

Gamplay is classically good. Age of empires with a twist. I wish you could put your military units into formation and provide more advanced commands tho.

Veredict; 7+1/10 (that +1 is the nostalgia factor, but this remake can be improved a lot more_

Good RTS, voice-acted campain taking place through the Greek, Egyptian, Scandinavian and Atlantean mythologies. While the extended edition does not bring many exciting things to the table, it at least allows to play in multiplayer. Must buy if on sale for 10$ or less. Should buy for any RTS player for the 20$ (somewhat expensive for what is essentially enabling multiplayer again for a classic).

I think this is one of the best RTS games I've ever played. Fun, addictive, colorful, and can boost anyone's interest in mythology. I used to play it on a 14 inch CRT monitor, about 15 years ago. Now I enjoy it on a 40 inch TV and have fun just like the first time I played it. On the technical side, excellent rotating camera. Unit acknowledgements can turn a bit annoying after many hours of playing, especially for family members who are around you when you play, but hey, it's an oldie. I would only place StarCraft and Brood War above this one.

Prostagma? Pani!

I remember when i first saw AOM, i was in highschool and didn't like mythology stuff but i like rts so i tried it..
Didn't know that it would really enlighten me in mythology and really made me interested and surprisngly enough that it help me with my study and people are like hey why do you know those stuffs and i said well i played this game called AOM and read some of its character description.

8.5/10 for educational stuffs..

PS: O CANADA FREAKING LAZER BEAR really made me laugh until now

I bought this "extended" edition of my all-time favourite game when it came out on steam, to play online with my friends.

Unfortunately it's unplayable because of the lags when playing over the internet! Even after so long time they could not fix this problem! Shame on you!

PS: DON'T buy that ♥♥♥♥♥♥ dlc!
