Mmmm....... It's a shame they didn't bother making a more serious, fully fledged AOE game. I would've been all over that like jam on toast.

AFAIK the AoE name was under microsoft's IP and they only contracted RE to make AoE:O but the game has since transferred ownership to some other studio.

But yes , AoE2 remake = jam in pants.Regardless , waiting for a real RTS game to be made by RE.

i was gonna check this out but after reading about having to purchase "premium" armies and pretty much pay monthly...not sure how i feel about that....

I LOVED AOE2 and AOE3! I also really really really like AOM a lot and the titans expansion. The graphics are way out dated but that game is still fun. I wish i could find my AOE2 discs now .....i could play that game for hours just smashing the computers to pieces over and over again.....so good...

AOEO looks like TF style graphics which i like but i dont like the pay portion of it....

Oh boy, Age of Empires I was the very first game I every played. I have so many memories of playing AOE. I still play AOE III online. Reading this posts makes me remember all the good times I spent with friends playgin AOE I, II, III and AoM. But AoE- O seems like a step back. Its like a cartoon. Nothing I would like to play. It doesn't get my attention. I mean, I'm 19 and I feel like they are trying to make me play some game aimer for 10-12'ers.

I would totaly love to see AOE IV being created. As some of folks here, a remake of AOE I or II would be AWSEOME! I would love to revive those EPIC moments when I played AOE I with newer and better graphics. Dang... Lets keep this Hope alive. I play StarCraft II because Aoe III is pretty much dead. :/

Very Very good fight AOE! You are still the King of Kings!

I've been playing AOK and TC on and off for 10 years. I can beat the AI but I stink online.

I think it's one of the greatest games ever made.

I played the beta and it was really fun.

But seeing how the content is priced at and what you get for each price point is ridiculous. Way to expensive.

But I might install it just to play the free content because the beta was really fun.
