Hmmm, my runs pretty smooth with no lag. Eventually, it does get boring if you play it all the time. I still have AoE 2 and the expansion pack "Conquerors" that I get tired of playing it too. I still very much enjoy playing it though and do it from time to time. Don't play the game for a few weeks and you'll want to play it again. I was off AoE 2 for like a month and I find myself coming back to it. The full version has got to be better with more civilizations, maps, multiplayer, etc.
The problem with the new AoE 3 is that you dont have to do anything to get the resources (except from the beginning where you have to build up). I mean, there's the mill, plantation for coins, plus the trading posts, and HomeTowne. Eventually, they generate by themselves and I get loads of resources so the challenge is pretty much getting to that point. Once you are there, your enemies will get smoked big time because you have everything. That's when you know the games over. I'm looking forward to the other campaigns and more maps in the full version. That will be more fun.
