My roommate purchased it thinking it was like AOE2 (hes also a big RTS fan) and well he found it disappointing, I tried it on his PC (mine for some reason wont run it) and didn't like it aswell. The battles feel stale and just not as exciting as the previous series.

Also alot of the game feels like they took too much from other RTS titles and just loses the AOE feel.

Decent story though, but Winter Assault Expansion is far more worth the time.

Yep.

FEAR and Quake 4 even made me forget WoW yesterday. Now THAT is saying something. :eek:

Sorry I really don't like Everquest, and I LOVE World of Warcraft. I generally hate MMORPGs but WoW plays like more of an action RPG so I'm much more interested in it. Plus all my friends play it. :D

I bought everquest and payed 5 full years for it..

Everquest = 50 bucks when i bought it
everquest playing 5 years = around $750

Sony has $800 of mine... i think I well deserve my right to do whatever I want with the game..... and its not illegal "technically"

Jesus christ... I cant believe people pay so much to play MMOGs. I used to play UO and basically it was just something to take up all my time so I couldnt do anything constructive (or play any other games). I stopped and that made me save money, gave me more time to get things done and allowed me to play more games :o

Not bashing you... it is fun, but man... it sure takes up ALL of your time and a HUGE chunk of your cash.

yea it does take up a huge chunk. I actually pay on the Custom Everquest server I'm on now. Not because I have to, but I donate. I don't mind paying for MMORPG's.... they really are fun.

:( I guess you just have to appreciate a good RTS. Or do you just not like the genre in general?

I enjoy it quite a bit... but I kind of wish I would have waited to buy it... seems fun and I love nailing people with cannons ;).

I have been a loyal fan of the AOE series since the 2nd title, which I played a lot. IMO, this one is a worthy successor, and there's plenty of "AOE feel". Also, the graphics are really SUPERB, and it looks so much better than the demo.

Hell yeah! That's the best part! Why do you wish you'd waited to buy it?

this review goes along the lines of how I feel. From the demo, it was plain out BORING. Graphics are superb and all, but graphics are nothing without gameplay. You get really small skirmishes from the AI (even on hard), and the peasants will stop what they're doing in the middle of their task, and do something else. As the review says, th emost excitement you get, is watching the naval battles.

I might buy it when it's $20, but right now, the AI is keeping me from this purchase.

and really, you can stop with the screenshots now, please. I am on 56k, and it takes forever to load them. We know how it looks, but it plays like poo.

What happened to all the people saying it was all about multiplayer with games like this? I complained about the AI in the demo and almost everyone said that in the full version everything would be a lot better because of MP.

Anyone played multiplayer yet?
