IGN - Age of Empires Online Review

IGN - I think I had the same reaction as many of our readers when the very first screens of Age of Empires Online drifted into the fanged, slathering maw of the internet. It was a kneejerk reaction --Age of Empires wasn't meant to be bright and colorful! It was meant to look realistic, and play like Deadliest Warrior on a societal scale.

The story is too old to be commented.

Too bad the developers of the originals were assigned an over-simplified RTS with an IP that didn't really make sense in the genre and then were driven into the ground and dispersed.

Too many great IPs are becoming "free"-to-play-unles s-you-want-to-actually-do-anyt h ing-good MMO games.

LOL, I remember how much I despised those little guys, stealing my units. They weren't slow, either; too often they escaped into the "fog" or behind enemy lines before I could seek my revenge.

This statement chose you lack of knowledge in the gaming industry.

Played the beta a while back, thought it might be okay even though it's just totally diferent.

Played the free-to-play version. Game restricts content from you by the time you've hit level 3. It's a blatant cash-grab on a large scale.
