Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

Because its gameplay stays true to its genre, Age of Mythology can immediately be played by any real-time strategy fan. The game's excellent tutorial and streamlined interface make it even easier to learn. Adding ancient Greek to the mix offers a few new tricks, however. The best is access to God-like powers such as weather control and resurrection; along with the usual strategy tasks such as training soldiers and gathering supplies, the decision of when to use these extra powers adds an intriguing level of strategy. Once installed, the demo reigns over nearly 500MB of drive space. Thankfully, it's packed with top-notch graphics, an inspiring soundtrack, and enough single-player campaigns to justify the resources it consumes. Arcade and puzzle fans should probably skip the mammoth download, but anyone with at least a passing interest in real-time strategy should consider this a must-have.
