Review - Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition (Xbox Series S/X) | WayTooManyGames

WTMG's Leo Faria: "This was a bold attempt by Microsoft. I applaud them trying to adapt the most mouse-friendly game in existence to a console, with a controller. It’s still fun, and it’s certainly very playable, but it’s off-putting. It’s far from being the ideal way to experience this classic, and to be fair, the PC version isn’t even THAT demanding, even on laptops. I really don’t know who this particular port of Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition is for. You may have fun with it for a while, and there is a ton of content (despite some additional DLC, bummer), but at the end of the day, you’ll revert back to playing the original version on a PC, with a mouse and keyboard, just like the God of Wololo intended."

I’ve been having a blast with it on console sitting on my couch lol they mapped the controlles to controller surprisingly well. I thought it was going to be a mess but I had it all down in about 10 minutes. I wish they had implemented more gameplay settings when creating matches, but it’s a small complaint. On my Series X it runs perfectly even with all the settings cranked to high and the map and population sizes cranked up to max. Haven’t had a stutter besides the odd one when it auto saves.
