I just played it. It is definately the best AoE made. It's an ok game, I just don't like how the resource thing is done in it, I prefer the type that is used for example in Warhammer 40k: Dawn of war. So there is only like a few resources and u get them by controlling points, quite much like the trade post thing in AoE 3. IMO it's better that way so it's more about ur skills using limited resources instead of just making loads of resource collectors and then after that just making troops all the time from all of the possible building.
