This combat in AoE:O looks to be quicker and more brutal than the previous game, but the two previous Age of Empire games were horribly balanced and boring, so I fear the same of this one. However, it is different studio and with that there is new hope. I hope that the attractive art style, customization options, free gameplay, multiple races, large maps and progressive elements will make this Age of Empires the real successor to Age of Empires 2, but we will have to wait till the 16th to find out. That's all there is to say about this game for the moment, but do check out this release trailer and see if it the game piques your interest at all. I was a fan of Age of Empires 2 and I'm really glad to see them doing something new with this game, but I am worried by all the possible downfalls. It is being made by Gas Powered Games and Microsoft Studios. Thanks for reading, last post of the night, I swear.
