8 Random Matches - Matched against Fu Xi as a diety every time. Game forces you to either buy the DLC or to quit the game due to "Incompatible units" as the AI is using units restricted to DLC owners.

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.

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...

Classic game. However, i cannot install it on Windows 10. Disk Write Error, or something of that sort. I would love to come back to this game after years of absence, but I can't until the problem is fixed.

It's a good remaster of a game that was in dire need of revival, the DLC it comes with breathes new life into it, despite it's many setbacks. I'd get it if you love history, and the mythology of various nations.

This is the Extended Edition. By extended, They mean, take a 15 year old game that worked perfectly before, somehow make it looks worse, and make it completely unplayable on anything but a supercomputer.

Kudos devs.

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.

If you want to play Age of Mythology, buy the first game and play online with Voobly and/or Gameranger. The 'Extended Edition" has nearly no players, lags and crashes all the time and randomly has errors causing multiplayer games to just stop, regardless of progress.

Great game, but this extended edition performs badly; it's not well optimized. Could run all of the other AoE, as well as the original AoM, just fine but this one takes a dip in framerates just by scrolling through the map.

If you experience slowness/reduced framerates, you can try some of the methods mentioned by others (ensure you're not running in integrated graphics if you have a dedicated card, run in the lowest resolution, turn off water refraction and shadows). This kind-of helped, slightly, but the game's frequent frame-drop just makes it unplayable.

Bugs is not something this game lacks. It has got them, a lot of them. Not to mention they seem to have got the online experience much worse than the original..

Aah, Age of Mythology
I've played this game since I was 9 years old. I could remember the first time I put in the CD and saw the game I would play the next 4 years. I loved it, played it for days, alone and with friends. Until I lost the CD. 2 Years after the loss I met Steam, and saw that they made the Extended Edition. So, like I always do, waited until christmas and bought it in the Winter Sale. And all the memories came back to me, and started playing it again. And apparently I never stopped loving this game. Every time I click on the PLAY button I still feel the memories coming back to me.

10/10 wouldn't forget the background music again.
