Well...AOM uses a 3d engine a la WC3, so it looks much better in my opinion. Can't really say about the gameplay though, since I haven't played it much, but all of the reviews are pretty strong. If you like RTS, I would imagine this is a no brainer.

It's a great game, but if you've played AOE 2, it's not as fresh as you might hope. The graphics are fantastic, but the gameplay is hardly evolutionary. I'd still reccomend it if you enjoy RTS' though.

Already have it since about the first week of its release. Been out for a while now and wondering if Mike might be interested in a review of it

It's an awesome game. Great graphics, fun gameplay. The best review I've read for it said, "It doesn't do anything to redefine the genre, but it's still a great game."
