Editors' Review

+
Kind of a mix of Civilization 2 and Warcraft II, Age of Empires is a real-time strategy classic that has in turn spawned countless imitators. If you've ever played any title from the Age series, you'll feel right at home gathering the troops, gathering natural resources, and building structures. The game's graphics and sound are a bit rough by today's standards, but the challenging gameplay and classic control definitely stand the test of time. Although only one campaign comes with the demo, it's split up into several scenarios that can take hours to get through. If you're any kind of real-time strategy fan, this should have a mandatory spot in your download library.

"Its a Demo"

February 08, 2013  |  By ethyrdude

 |  Version: Age of Empires 1.0

Pros

You get what you paid for - a demo

Cons

Good luck trying to get the full version, maybe in a yard sale.

Summary

When this was released back in 1997 it was a great game, I found it far more entertaining than AOE3 which took me all of a weekend to get through all the scenarios including the two expansion packs, yes it was well done but a bit same old same old. I was hoping this was the full version as its one of the few I don't actually have, I did "borrow" a copy but deleted it once done, I do have AOE 2 and the 2 expansion2 as well as Age of Mythology with the titans expansion pack. AOE 2 is actually a bit better than 1 but I did want to give AOE 1 another go on my old puter. In any case this is a demo, this will probably be my last visit to this site as I am not liking the CNET installer even just a little, I don't like having to install other stuff on my computer especially for a demo.
