In Age of Empires steckt unglaublich viel drin. Selbst wenn ich die Kampagnen durchgespielt habe, kann ich mich noch Monate auf Zufallskarten mit cleveren KI-Gegnern schlagen. Ausgewogene Einheiten und eine Prise Civilization bei der Erforschung neuer Technologien machen jede Partie zum Abenteuer. Die etwas unausgegorene Wegfindungsroutine kann ich da locker verschmerzen. Schlagen Sie ruhigen Gewissens zu - mehr Echtzeit-Strategie fürs Geld werden Sie derzeit nirgends finden.

AoE Gold revisits that the fully patched version of that 1997 title and its 1998 add-on, The Rise of Rome, to surprisingly agreeable effect. While about two years have passed since Age appeared-Microsoft plans to release the full sequel, Age of Kings, this fall-the game still feels fresh and unique.
