This collection of the basic game and expansions is a good value for Real Time Strategy (RTS) game players. The War Chiefs expansion is ok, campaign short, and not a lot of depth. The Asian Dynasties Expansion is a lot of fun, three campaigns (Japan, India, China), with each nation having their own wonders giving them unique special abilities. The different nations are neat, but not having a United States colonial civilization to choose from in skirmish mode is disappointing, especially after playing the campaign game in War Chiefs. The campaigns are easier to complete and have less depth than Age of Empires II (AoE2). AoE3 campaigns were overall fun, but require much less strategy to win; build one small army to defend your base and when the large army is ready to go, overwhelm the computer.

The graphics have improved, but did experienced significant lag and even game freezing at times due to ship combat on the duo-core Thinkpad, even with all graphic options reduced to minimal levels. Other than naval combat, the game played well. Not sure why the lag occurred.

There are some improvements to the game play where a single large farm can be built and no need to worry about cueing or constantly checking if there is enough wood to re-task the workers to harvest food. The use of a home city for the campaign game is really neat with special cards to provide resources, upgrades, or units. Each nation has unique units and cards. The strategy of the cards is very important, does the player want to have early age villagers to gather resources faster or hold on for the late age military units for the end game battles? This adds depth to the game.

The basic resources are still wood, gold, food, with experience for home city improvement (cards).

For some reason, I never had my expectations set very high when it came to this game, and so, I held out on buying it until recently, when I noticed I could get this complete collection at such a great price. Perhaps it was because of the industrialization- something I detest whenever it somehow sneaks into a fantasy RPG which I often play. Maybe it was just because the formula for the Age series was already done, done again, then done again after that. Or most likely, I have always been terrible at real-time strategy games and found them frustrating, but fun at the same time. I guess I wanted something new, but still wanted something I knew I'd have fun with.

And I did get that. When I first started, I was very pleased at a lot of the new features that added more depth to the Age series' formula. The game is largely played in the same way as previous Age games, but with more depth and strategy. While a lot tend to compare it to Age of Empires 2, this game has most in common with Age of Mythology. You choose sides when you advance in age, create more special units based on your civilization, focus more on bonuses and units, etc. My favorite new addition was the home city shipment system, which allows you to choose units, upgrades, etc. to be sent to your town center throughout the round. You must choose which shipments will be available before each round starts, so there is careful planning involved before the game actually starts. This is mostly emphasized in skirmish and multi-player modes instead of campaign, but after the game starts is where the focus of the campaign should be anyway.

The game's main campaign series follows the Black family, starting with Morgan Black, set in around the 16th or 17th century (can't remember exactly).

I was a little leery about buying this game based upon the reviews that said they couldn't find the game after installing it. I had previously played Age of Mythology and loved it. So I went ahead and bought it and installed it. After installing it I had the same problem that many others had. The icon didn't show up on my desktop, or in any file I looked in nor did it open immediately after I installed it. I was so disappointed. I was going to ask for a refund but decided to look through my computer one more time. I have a Toshiba Touch Screen laptop with Windows 8. I was looking through the files that are on my hard drive and then through the program files. I followed the Microsoft Games file (that is the company that sells the game) and the AOE III file that was there. There was a big list of files and after scrolling almost to the bottom I finally found the icon that opened the game. After installing a run program my game opened!

So for those of you who are like me and need a guide-Open up your file folder that is in your start menu bar on your desktop. When that opens click on your hard drive-the one that shows how much memory you have left on your computer under devices and drives. Click on the File marked "Program Files" (it should have a number after it-mine was Program Files (x86)) and then scroll until you see the "Microsoft Games" file. Click on the "Age of Empires III" file and scroll down until you see the icon that has a Black Triangle Hat looking thing-should be the first one with the file name age3. Click on that-install the run program and there is your game. I added the game as a shortcut on my desktop so I don't have to go through this process every time.
