Not really a fan, the Age of Empires series always felt vastly inferior to the Empire Earth series that was doing the rounds about the same time. EE always felt more epic to this game and I think it had a much more enjoyable single player mode.

The unit cap on this game was severely hampering, as well as some of the ridiculous cheats. Who could forget the photonman? I can.

And once you had more resources (I neve... read more

“This was some good stuff.

And once you had more resources (I never liked to attack until I knew I was set for victory, I was never a rusher or a raider) you learn to translate economic greatness into military might, swarming the enemies' army, ravaging his base, seizing his resources (which are useful to expand your economy even further), and if he manages to survive the first onslaught, you can repeat the ordeal for him as many times as necessary, until the fi” read more
