I have been thinking about jumping into RTS games, and Age of Empires seems to be a favorite. My biggest question stems around the AI. Can anyone offer up a few opinions on the difficulty of the AI? I don't really have the time for multiplayer options online, so a nearly indefeatable AI is something I really look for, even if the AI does receive bonuses to augment its abilities.

Thanks for the help!

If you don't mind the AI receiving bonuses to augment then the AOE AI on hardest is indeed tough. Although I could easily defeat 3 computer players on hard, 3 on hardest was totally dependent on a defendable map position. If you do get AoE I recommend you get the gold package which has both AoE and the RoR upgrade along with the 1.0b patch. And watch here for news on another expected patch for AoE.

I agree with Thinker, the AI on hardest is very tough.

The AI always has the default population so if you set your population higher, it's more of a challenge to use multi-AIs. have fun

Tenacity, A beg to differ. The comp AI, even on hardest is very simple and easy to manipulate.

i agree Coleader that the ai is easy to manipulate. Like get it to attack houses or towers. Or kill all the ai's poor repairmen it sends to its death. The ai doesn't do well on islands (it transports badly)

Non the less I do think if someone likes single player games the ai can give a great game. If one doesn't manipulate the AI's weakness

Settings like pop200 human vs 4 or 5 or 6 hardest allied computer players on a non-water map are very hard to kill.

I almost always play multiplayer, a funny thing though when i first started to play aoe multiplayer..all was so suck! no one as bad as me so i thought well I'll practice hard settings vs 1 ai...it sent clubbies and barracks stuff at me..LOL killed me dead.....thought ,i would never kill even one hard AI
