    Pros: A few new graphics.
    Cons: A WASTE OF SPACE!!

    Cons: There is nothing wrong with this game!

    Summary: I just can’t stop playing this game. Am I addicted? Possibly. Microsoft’s AOE happens to be one of the few games out there that’s capable of keeping me busy way past the 8 hour mark. Showing no signs of defeat at 10 hours, I pressed on, determined to ... read more

    Pros: Multiplayer, Campains, Death Match
    Cons: graphics

    Summary: Well, I must say that this was a game that when I bought it, I spent a whole lot of time playing it. I'm talking black-eyes, not showering in days, not seeing natural light for one week kind of obsession. OK, maybe I was exagerating a little. But make no ... read more
