I thought I was over my AOE addiction back when MSN zone shut down. I managed to go outside and make some friends. I even got a girlfriend and a job. Life was good until a colleguage told me to check out the black friday steam sale. I noticed AOE HD listed with 70% off and immediately started having flash backs of the game from back in 2000.
I have to say the game hasn't changed from what I remember and once I got the hang of the keys I was playing like a pro again. In the first few months there were crashing issues in the lobbies but these have been fixed recently. I now love playing it just as much as I used to and spend most nights in deathmatch games.
The population limit increase it the only feature i've noticed to really improves the game from the original...apart from that its the same, so probably overpriced for a 15 year old game. Reasonable if you pick it up in a steam sale.
Unfortunately my girlfriend got sick of the sound of camels moaning while she tries to watch towie so our relationship took a bad turn...my boss has also noticed my work productivity has decreased because I spend too much time sitting in deathmatch lobbies when i'm supposed to be working...he said if things don't improve I will be fired.
I think I could enjoy this game more if I was single and unemployed but at the moment it's causing too many problems :(
