Age of Empires Online
A different approach to RTS games, 7/10
I'd recommend everyone to try out the free version before hand, then if you like it you should feel free to buy the complete version. Aoe:online is really a special RTS game, since it incorporates RPG elements which makes it quite interesting. Try it out it, you might just like it.
The shame of the series?
The Age of Empires series always has been an excellent source of RTS games. But this ''game'' looks less than desirable. The cartoon like graphics sure does give that impression. I could say I'm ashamed of this game, well unless it is truly an excellent game, but seriously an MMO mixed with an RTS? Please do your experiments elsewhere.
