I loved AoEII but this remake is overpriced and doesn't do enough visually or gameplay wise. It's possible I'll grab it during a sale but more than likely I'll pass on it.


£11 is overpriced? Didn't you buy SimCity...

Noooooo! Why aren't you offering support for Macs?! I used to play this game religiously, and myself and some friends would go to an internet cafe for a day-long game.

This makes me unhappy. :(

I'm am looking forward to this so much you wouldn't believe. I sunk so many hours into this game after getting for free with an old computer we used to have and my list of saved games was huge...I played a multiplayer game on it a couple of months ago through GameRanger but it's a bit buggy, so this will be absolutely brilliant.

I don't really see why so many people are complaining either, sure it hasn't had a big visual makeover but if I'm honest I think it's better that way. It's not a remake, and they're not charging £30 for it, it's just a 1080p version with some new textures and features. Steam Workshop and proper multiplayer lobbies is reason enough for me to get this!

It's actually £15, discounted to £13.50 if you preorder (which is always a dubious prospect without reviews). That's pretty steep when it's essentially just a tweaked version of the game I played fifteen years ago, especially when for a similar price you can usually pick up AAA titles within 6 months of release. And no, I didn't buy SimCity but even if I had that's a modern game that's just been released.

Already ordered the 4-pack.

This title nearly caused me to fail high school... Easily one of my top 3 games of all time!

Remake reaction thus far:

Terrible. Completely unplayable. The framerate issues are horrendous and multiplayer simply doesn't work. And there are so many other little bugs it's simply unbelievable.

And, if you're running on XP, you won't even be able to play the game because it calls for API's that apparently don't exist!

Sigh.

Pre-ordered people got it on the 5th.

Got in a really good game earlier with my friend, then just before the end a disconnect screen came up to vote and everyone got kicked.

Played it for 4 hours today with no issues at all. The workshop support for Steam is pretty nice as well. Haven't tried multiplayer yet though.

Still one of my favorite games of all time. :D
