best RTS ever!


Well its 10 for me, i know everyone says the don't like the new fire, but i like it, but that's not what matters here, what matters is that's the Age of Empires II Community is back and it has loads of new features like the Steam Workshop, and this biggest thing here is online so its 10/10 for me!


It's nice to see Microsoft didn't forget this old gem!

Awesome game. Lot of historical stuff with fabulous gameplay. I suggest everyone to give it a try.




Age of Empires II. Is describe it necessary? I'll jump over that step. This HD Edition is, for sure, a perfect HD Edition! With new campaigns, new units, civilisations, with new design object, mechanics, that edition is what is have to be done when you make a modern edition!

I don't want to make a big review, there is a few interessant on Internet, I just want to give my opinion. And, f*ck, it is just positive!

The classic game, but even better. HD brings numerous bug and balance fixes, and lots of new content to boot. It also brings Steam's interface which facilitates multiplayer. The Forgotten expansion even makes Cartography a free tech that researches immediately after you click on it!

And remember!
Roses are Red.
Roses are Blue.


I like age of empire

Meh, I have old age of empires 2, it works, so why to pay again for same game?
Or it is just entering to new age of gaming for old game like aoe2? Useless paid dlc packs, frequent expansions, nothing new, lots of bugs
Thank you, but no

At the Point i am making this score the Game is still a mess.

People are complaining about bugs and low framerate, which i am having myself, everywhere.

The Original Game: 10/10

This "Port" 4/10

I'll change this as soon as i experience no problems without community fixes.

Nothing is new, except the terrain and the water. I am disappointed by far
