Game Review

Age of Empires is a historical real-time strategy trò chơi created by Ensemble Studios & published by Microsoft on October 15, 1997, for Windows. Later it was also published for Mac OS on August 22, 1998.

In this famous game, you control an ancient civilization through four different ages, from the Stone Age khổng lồ the Iron Age, with each age providing access lớn new units và technologies. Age of Empires quickly gained a reputation as a classic with its combination of solid chơi game mechanics & engaging features.

The trò chơi has four resources: food, wood, stone, và gold, which must be acquired by hunting, foraging, fishing, farming, logging, mining, or trade. The game"s emphasis on resource management is key lớn victory, and players must gather, preserve, & allocate these resources to build units, buildings, & advanced technologies. You can command your tribe khổng lồ build houses, docks, farms, và temples và advance your civilization through time by learning new skills. You can progress through the Ages: The Paleolithic (the Stone Age), the Neolithic (new Stone Age, or the Tool Age), the Bronze Age, và the Iron Age. If you would instead get away from the historical aspect, the game offers a random terrain generator and a custom scenario builder.

The original Age of Empires trò chơi allows players to control one of twelve civilizations, overseeing its development from a hunter-gatherer society to lớn Iron Age sovereigns. It also features four single-player campaigns focusing on the Babylonian, Egyptian, Greek, & Yamato civilizations. Ensemble Studios would later release the Rise of Rome expansion pack, which focused on the trials & tribulations of the ancient Roman Empire.

Age of Empires has 2 chiều isometric graphics that is somewhat dated but still offer an immersive experience for the player. The Genie Engine, the isometric engine used in the Ensemble"s title, was also used for other games, such as Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds & Close Combat III: The Russian Front and its sequels.

The game"s sound kiến thiết is also excellent, with a fantastic soundtrack that captures the essence of each civilization. The game offers a multiplayer mode where up to eight players can participate, và the overall mechanics of the trò chơi provide an enjoyable experience.

One of the game"s major criticisms is that resources vì chưng not grow: for example, trees, once cut down, do not grow back, so the trò chơi only offers a limited number of resources. Anyway, this is part of the design; it"s a precise choice. Thus, players must be very strategic in how they manage their resources. Considering that Age of Empires is generally regarded as one of the best đoạn phim games ever made, we can"t complain too much about this choice.

Upon its release, Age of Empires was reviewed positively. Many defined it as a sort of Sid Meier"s Civilization in real-time, although the two games are pretty different. Age of Empires is one of the most popular video clip game franchises ever created. The series, made of 4 main titles và spinoffs, has sold over trăng tròn million copies.
