Age of Empires III offers gamers the next level of realism, with advanced battle physics and unparalleled visual detail. The new game picks up where Age of “Empires II: Age of Kings” left off, placing gamers in the position of a European power determined to explore, colonize and conquer the New World. This time period features stunning scenes, from towering European cathedrals to courageous tribes of Native Americans, and spectacular combat with Industrial Age units like rifled infantry, cavalry and tall ships bristling with cannons. Age of Empires III excites strategy gamers with new game-play elements, including the concept of a “Home City,” new civilizations, units, technologies and an immersive new single-player campaign that will span three generations.
An excellent installment in the series, the game looks and plays beautifully even years after it’s release. The campaign has an engaging storyline, told with the same epic feel the series is known for. Thoroughly enjoyed creating the guides for this classic.
