Nice review. I remember playing this game against friends back in the day and had a lot of fun. Good to see it works so seamlessly.

I just find it funny that he says he didn't play the campaign at all cause he never plays campaigns on RTS's and the multiplayer wasn't up yet so he didn't play that either. How can he confidently give it 8/10 without playing the majority of the game?

That’s my issue. There’s 200 freaking hours plus worth of campaign.

But no he’s not a fan of the single player historical campaign stuff.

So he then decides gee I don’t know I guess I’ll score the game an 8 out of 10.

Believe me when I tell you fellas had this been a PlayStation platform only game he’d have given it a 9 out of 10 or 10 out of 10.

This is par for the course though with pathetically poor reviewer when it comes to most not all Xbox related stuff.

I really can’t take that gentleman seriously. The man couldn’t even play online. But as he said he’d probably jump in later.

Cool story bro. Game is excellent. A masterclass in porting a beloved PC RTS game to console.

Would love to have seen this on the PlayStation 5 as well. I think it do really well there. I definitely would have double dipped with a second purchase especially with cross-play.

I do understand that Microsoft and their IP are on a case by case basis in terms of exclusivity. AOE2 DE though would be fantastic with the dualsense touchpad.

Anyway happy gaming boys and girls!
