It must be me; surely, so many people just can’t be wrong. So I gave AOE3 a go; and granted, at maximum detail and resolution, it’s a fabulous example of gorgeous interactive computer generated art. If you have the hardware for it, that is.
What I don’t get is what all the noise is about?! Sure, the game is lightyears away from and ahead of its two predecessors — but at this level, I expected more. All too soon, I get the feeling of “been there, done that, and I even scored a couple of t-shirts”. Man, what a disappointment. I think the AOE-team is losing track and sight of their audience; or perhaps they’re gunning for a different audience?! The one that I’m not in? 🙂
