Age of The Empire 3 is a game I grew up with. I had loads of fun playing this for very very long hours. In my opinion, this game is amazing. It has fantastic graphics and lot of new and cool features and upgrades which added more excitement and entertainment in the game. Moreover, the graphics are very enchanting and beautiful. Also, the visuals and music of it are good.

After having used this game for the last 8 months, I can say that this game is simply a normal extension of the Age of Empires games. I have used the last version of this game, and I think this version is an progress in virtually every way. The weapons are very powerful, and the battles are very stunning. All I can say is that this game is really good. It is one of the best strategy games I have ever played.

Pros

  • Key improvements over previous games in series.
  • No cross-platform multiplayer support provided

Cons

  • Lively new civilizations and lots of new gameplay
