Patch 2.3 Now Live!

Patch 2.3
Just a minor update only 1 day after Patch 2.2 went out. Updating the version was necessary to prevent cross build desyncs due to the war salamander pathfinding fix.

Bug Fixes
Amphibious units can now traverse terrains properly once again.
The game will no longer spontaneously pause due to breakpoints existing in some AI scripts.
Desync tracking system will now generate logs when you play scenarios.
You cannot enable the desync tracking system in quickmatch (settings are ignored).

We're still looking into some data fixes that went into Patch 2.0 Hotfix #3 that got lost when Patch 2.1 was introduced. For example, the AI won't cross Yellow River.

We are also aware there is a refresh issue in the lobby browser. This isn't something that was changed, so we believe there is a problem on the Valve side, but we are investigating this. Some people have posted information that if you change the dropdown from ping to something else and back again, it'll recover quicker.

This game was a nostalgia overload. I had first played it when I was 6/7 years old, an I remember being absolutely terrible at it but having so much fun with the visuals and the rich mythological aspect to the game. Now the extended edition became the remake we were all looking for, unlike Star Wars Battlefront to name an example. They updated the graphics, through in a free expansion, and reinvigorated the online community. This is one of my all time favourite games, and I would heavily reccomend that you purchase it.

The new game expansion (Tale of the Dragon) is awesome! I bought the game only because of this expansion, and I assure you, it worth every penny.

Writing long reviews is boring, this game isn't. If you like any strategy games or ancient mythology you will like this. I've been playing it since I was a little kid.

This game is sooo good the dlc is worth the extra $10 (Or $5 if you buy the bundle), controls are really simple, the campaign is great, online is fun and if you find freinds to play you will be playing for hours (10 out of 10) The bundle is worth it if you plan on playing for a very long time (TBH i would wait for a summer sale or a winter sale because it is way more cheaper than $35 normal)

Age of Mythology: Extended Edition is a good example of a poorly made cash grab.
The Extended tag probably mean the new bugs Skylab managed to produce, that didn't exist in the original.

The AI pathfinding is messed up. Units will often phase through the walls and villagers often get stuck in larger buildings (Temple, Wonder, Titan Gate) they have finished building.

The changes to the graphics are highly questionable. The new textures are washed out, so it's highly recommended to revert them to something that looks closer to the original (EG: Epic textures mod). Otherwise you will have a hard time finding your units, as they blend into the environment too well.

Last but not least the netcode. Oh, boy! If you thought Age of Empires 2 HD's netcode was bad, then you have no idea what this game has in store for you. The online matches are insane lagfests, often freezing up for seconds, rendering the game unplayable.

Bottom line is that this version of the game is a mess. Skip it, you're not missing out much!

Impossible to play online against other players due to the lag in response from the servers. Playing from Singapore here. Would greatly appreciate it if the servers can be upgraded or expanded to other regions

Glaring technical issues and they have gated the really big type of map (cant recall the specific term) behind the expansion.
I requested a refund.
Too bad cause I loved playing this game when I was younger.

Started a random game vs AI, AI opponent got the Chinese, I don't have the ♥♥♥♥♥♥ DLC, so I was forced to either buy the DLC or quit the game.

What kind of ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t is this?

A cuple of years after release and the mutliplayer stills runs terribly and just massively stutters. Just buy the original game as the online experience is very much dead.

If you're wanting to play LAN games, don't buy this version, get the original from somewhere else. This version is very buggy for LAN games, and has terrible, terrible lag, random desyncs (player drops), and is very buggy when trying to save the game and resume at a later time. You'll not get to finish 1/3 of the games you start due to these bugs. We also encountered game corruption, where multiple players will experience severe graphics glitches making the game unplayable. Saving & resuming did not resolve this, it kept spreading & getting worse. The original game (and titans expansion) was rock solid, so if you can get your hands on that instead of this game, you will avoid much disappointment and headaches.
I got it during the summer sale so it's worth the money I paid, and still a good game, but that is in spite of the horrible problems they've added to it with this "Extended" edition. Oh, and they've paywalled the "giant" sized maps, so you'll have to get the dragon DLC to play that map size.
