Reviewing a remake of a game that is over ten years old is a little difficult, especially if the remake is nearly an exact copy of the original game. In this case, “Age of Mythology: Extended Edition” is nearly identical. Everything from the character models to the level design remain the same. Don’t get me wrong, it looks much prettier than I remember it…but aside from the extras, you’re getting the same game you played years prior. Same scoop of vanilla ice cream if you will, but with jimmies and chocolate syrup on top. Shadows, lighting, water effects, time of day, antialiasing, ambient occlusion…all great additions, I just wish there was a bit more. Twitch users will be pleased to know that there is Twitch integration, though I personally haven’t tried it to know if it works.

With that being said, I do appreciate the remake, even if it’s almost the same game as I played years ago. Seeing the updated graphics was nice, though I admit the appeal was mainly centered around the fact that I didn’t have to enter my blasted serial key each time I wanted to install the game. I also don’t have to worry about managing discs…all three products (“Age of Mythology”, “Age of Mythology: The Titans”, “Golden Gift Campaign”) were all condensed into one nice, easy to boot up package. It’s hard to justify that convenience into a thirty dollar price tag however, the going rate as of 4/29/14. If you’ve never played “Age of Mythology”, love RTS’s, and don’t mind the outdated character models/interface, then picking this up is most certainly worth your time and money. If you have your own playable copies of the game from years ago and want to know if buying the extended edition for the effects is worth thirty bucks, then I’d have to say (with heartfelt regret) no.

Pixel Judge Age of Mythology: Extended Edition review

The Verdict
Age of Mythology: Extended Edition is a very good cash-in on an old game. RTS market isn‘t really oversaturated and AoMEE is still a solid game. Two good (and one less so) campaigns that are bundled together with really fun skirmish, and all of that is topped by an excellent map editor, and now, Steam Workshop integration. What else could one ask? Surely not a sequel, because it would suck.

Score: 4.5/5 - Still a legendary game.

I have been playtesting Age of Mythology: Extended Edition for a week, played over 30h, and yes, the game is worth it. If you are at least marginally into RTS, this is a game you shouldn't miss.

If you are new to AoM, you're in for a good old real-time strategy experience that shaped the world of RTS gaming, all in a fun mythological setting. Specific mechanics like god powers and mythological units make the gameplay unique and interesting, bringing different style, but with the same basics, to the whole of "Age of" franchise, the paragon of strategy gaming.

If you played the original, you're going to get the same great gaming experience, but with some extra goodies. Obvious are enhanced graphics and support of today's resolutions (I've been playing on 1920x1200 with no problems) - the graphics take a while getting used to as there are some harder to discern things due to the new lighting and colour scheme of map backgrounds, but overall the change is nice and adds to the game, making it more attractive for first timers.

The most important addition is revitalisation of multiplayer through Steam, which looks just like old ESO. You have Quick Search for random matchmaking, advanced games for all your fun and scenario games, chat lobby and they added Leagues and Events. They've also included Treaty mode (ceasefire until certain amount of time) and the option to disable Titans (the unit). You can check the video I made about the Multiplayer Online Lobby

Another fun thing is the Steam Workshop and the fact the game has been made more friendly to modders. AoM community has always been full of talented people producing fun and useful content like various UIs and custom scenarios, and even before launch, there are mods already trickling in. Plus most of the original custom scenarios should work even on AoM:EE, so no real way to get bored with this game :-)

Last thing in need of mentioning is improved support of Observer Mode and streaming - you can now see various in-game stats of players like resources, upgrades in process and similar in an easy to navigate table to give you a better idea of how are the players doing, and you can also switch to players' perspectives. This same interface works in recorded games, so you can analyse even those.

All in all a nice remake of a great game. If you loved the original, you'll enjoy this, if this is your first time with AoM, you'll enjoy it, too :-)

Simply an awesome game. As a new AoM player, but an old AoE player, I am certainly impressed and cannot believe that I missed this game during its original days. All the best qualities of Age of Empires combined with an unique mythic atmosphere. If, like me, you never played this game before, now it's certainly the time to get it. Otherwise you're probably looking for the Steam improvements such as Multiplayer and Workshop support. See you online!

I have playtested this new release for over 30 hours, and have never really stopped playing the original since it first came out (although I only started multiplayer in 2009).
This game is definitely worth getting, as it's easily one of the best, and most fun RTS games out there.
The game has its own issues such as minor bugs and imbalances, however these will definitely be fixed as time goes

A multitude of game modes, such as campaign, custom scenarios (aka minigames), supremacy(standard mode), deathmatch(high starting resources, all upgrades researched) etc will definitely keep you hooked for months, if not years.

Why are you still here reading what I think? Go buy it! Tell your friends to buy it, too.
