This is a remarkable remake of the original. It has the qualities of a world class RTS and is continuously improved by many updates. I love the game play, the theme, the graphics and music. The only negative thing which may be fixed in the future is the path finding. But aside that nuisance the rest of the game is exceptionally good. The campaigns are inviting and fun to play with. Oh and the only other thing I have to say is that Macedonia is actually the Greeks after Alexander the Great. It shouldn't be held against them that they included Macedonia but left out Athens and Sparta. Just saying.

"To love Christ -means not to be a hireling, not to look upon a noble life as an enterprise or trade, but to be a true benefactor and to do everything only for the sake of love for God." —St John Chrysostom
"When one returns to the Greek; it is like going into a garden of lilies out of some, narrow and dark house." -Oscar Wilde

The game has improved to a point that I would now call it "great." I really enjoy playing it. Path finding is a bit of a problem still, but it always was a problem. I think the AI is better, and it is nice when you play with computer allies that they automatically come to help you if you are in trouble.

Unfortunately some players like myself prioritize pathfinding over all other concerns so I can never see AoE DE in a positive light.

That's too bad Kataphraktoi, because you are missing out on a long running classic, and the best version yet.

I think the biggest problem with this game is that most fans of the show prefer AoE2, including me. Therefore, we wanted a clone of AoE2 but with civilizations, units and campaigns of Antiquity.

Yes. ... But then what would be the point of plaiyng AoE at all when you could be plaiyng AoK instead?

Ironically, I once tried to make a mod that was literally exactly that( That is: Take the civilizations from AoE, and adapt then into the tech tree and general gaming systen of AoK, except that change the name of some units to become more period-appropriate. ). I eventually gave up, though, for a couple of reasons. The main one being that I just couldnt think of enough unique units for all of then.

I may be in the minority, but I don't care for AoK that much. Players can be too defensive for my taste. AoE is simpler and more straightforward. I prefer ancients anyway.
