In 3 years this is still the best multiplayer game,
This review is from: Age of Empires 2 Official Expansion: The Conquerors - PC (Video Game)
I am updating this review. I didn't like the mythology version and I don't like AOE 3 but I still like this one.
You have to think and plan to play and win at this game. It is not a shootem up.
Everyone can play at the same time on the LAN.
I have 2 teenage daughters and we will play this game for hours. They inevitably beat me and together we can beat almost any combination of computer opponents even when we create the max number of opponents.
It is a good game because of the planning. You must manage your resources and plan to get more resources in order to provide for defense and offense.
I wish they would take this game in another direction from AOE 3. Create a way for players to develop unique tools for war or resources. AOE 3 seems to have spent all its energy on graphics. I bought one version of AOE 3 but none of us find it compelling enough to buy 2 more copies for LAN play so we continue to enjoy this version.
