Real Time Strategy games have always been a great little power trip, even for those as strategically inept as I. Commanding armies of fantastical orcs and humans, lead by their mighty hero units in Warcraft. Constructing technologically advanced robots and amassing an army on a massive scale in Total Annihilation and Supreme Commander. Leading your men against untold galactic horrors in Warhammer 40,000. Or pushing your fledgling group of gatherers to thrive and prosper through history in Age of Empires. Ensemble Studios’ Age of Mythology picks up the core mechanics of the Age of Empires series, and throws in a healthy dose of mythical intrigue to create a unique and enjoyable experience. Now, nearly 12 years later, the updated Age of Empires: Extended Edition has been released. But is it worth playing for those that have fond memories of the original, or those that are more used to modern RTS games?
