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.

I bought this game several months back via Steam. The connectivity was absolutely superb for what few games actually existed or that I could play with friends. Since I recently started playing again after a long hiatus, the connection since the Chinese were released has gone downhill so hard. I started playing Age of Mythology way back in the early 2000s, and it consumed much of my time after school. The game is virtually unplayable given the horrid latency online, as the storyline, although entertaining and enjoyable, has absolutely no replayability. 'Tis a shame.

I'd recommend it for the fact only that it -was- a good game. I wouldn't recommend it beyond past experiences. Current experiences make it pitiful. If only Ensemble still owned it, or rather if only Ensemble still existed.

\ Ignore the amount of hours I have here, I've played the original game and the Titans expansion for hundreds of hours. /

- THOSE WHO HAVE PLAYED THE ORIGINAL GAME SKIP THE FIRST PARAGRAPH -
Age of Mythology is a simple strategy game to get into, but hard to master. The game has 3 campaigns (although not the same length) and PvP multiplayer (Online, AI and LAN). The first campaign alone (32 levels) is a lot of fun and the story is very interesting; it will take more than 30 hours to complete this campaign alone! Add on the Titans campaign and another one (which I haven't played yet) and you can easily get over 60 hours of play-time.
The multiplayer is nice and easy to set up and a lot of fun and very competitive.
The mechanics are pretty much the same as any other RTS (Real Time Strategy) game: gather resources, build a big city and army, and finally demolish the enemy. Unlike other RTS games I have tried in the past, the game is easy to learn and the UI is very well set out and organised: you will rarely, if never, get confused as to what's going on or what you're supposed to do to advance/beat the level.

Now, I'll talk about the remastering of the game.
The game is pretty much the same, apart from the inclusion of the expansions straight away; you won't find anything new gameplay-wise or content-wise. What has improved is the support for high screen resolutions (including multi-monitor setups, which I have tried myself and... oh boy... it's faboulous), better shadows and lighting. A cool addition is the ability to stream on Twitch directly from the game; I haven't tried doing so myself but I think it's a nice feature.
Lastly, there's Mods. Still have to play around with them, but as far as I've seen there's some quality stuff.

\ VERDICT /
If you have played Age of Mythology before and want to re-experience everything again and compete against other players, this game won't disappoint you. BUY THIS GAME.
But if you're expecting new stuff, you're out of luck.

If you have never played Age of Mythology you're missing out a lot. BUY THIS GAME.

If you have played any Age of Empires game and you enjoyed them BUY THIS GAME.

This is the longest review I've ever written on Steam.

Great game. It\'s very accurate in terms of mythology. If you\'ve played Age of Empires then you\'ll no doubt love this game. It\'s very hands on. I enjoy the graphics and sounds. The buildings are well done along with the story. The AI can seem a bit broken at times, but it\'s way nicer than Age of Empires AI, so that\'s a sight to see. Though there are parts that can get rather boring, it makes up for it with quick-play matches, and even a multiplayer system. The units are very ranged and it\'s interesting when you play as different groups like Nords, Egyptians, Greeks, etc. The system is very easy to learn and understand so even if you\'re new to these kind of games it\'s nothing to be scared of. Overall, a good strategy game.

When I bought this game in November the game was working fine. A few months ago when AOM was updated the game stopped working. When I try to play online the game crashes and closes back to desktop.
I can´t recommend a game that is not working!!!

Ask me two days ago, my favorite game is Team Fortress 2.

Now it is AoM: Extended Edition.

I have the Titans expansion with the original game on disc but it is not compatible with newer computers, I am very happy to see that it is on Steam, with multiplayer! There are also new add-ons that aren't in the original besides multiplayer, which includes being able to choose Chinese gods or even Titans!

I really love this game.

I am absolutely thrilled to see this game reemerge - what a lovely surprise on a miserable Saturday morning! The original was one of the first games I owned and it has remained in my top 2 ever since. Would absolutely recommend this game even if you only played the campaigns - they are great fun. I have never played multiplayer, but have sunk countless hours into its singleplayer mode!

So apparently after the new expansion came out they decided to integrate parts of it into the EX edition of the game.
Prior to the expansion coming out I could play the old game without any problems at all. Now it appears that the same coding for the base game and the expansion are mixed in some way.

Would not recommend anymore as the amount of bugs have increased quite rapidly since the release of the Tales of the Dragon expansion.

Hopefully they get their collective ♥♥♥♥ together so that those of us who used to love AoE and TItans can enjoy the old classic game once more.
