If you recently tried playing Age of Empires after playing later RTS games. you just realise how much you have taken for granted...

Campaigns that literally tell you what to attack and how through trigger and flares.

Auto farm replenishing, or no depletable resource sites. Lots of auto-micromanaging tidbits that you have to do manually again (putting villies to work, rebuild farms, selecting each building individually and clicking build...)

Counter units upon counter units, also units with special powers.

Playing in full 3D.

I much prefer 2D to 3D.

eah, 2d is far more suited to the Aoe RTS style of play, but the more micro-based games, such as warcraft 3, are IMO,best in 3d, heck, they need the graphics to keep up with aoe

2d is good cause doesn't use as my resouces to run the dam game.
3d is good at times, apart from when it lags.
