Got this as a Christmas present from my brother :)

Really nice game, I must say (although I've only played it for about 3-4 hours so far). I like it better than AoK, which I found too difficult to manage because of the tedious micromanagement of the villagers. In this one, at least with the Greeks, it seems much better. And I like the idea of the mythic creatures and special powers granted by gods.

Anybody here still playing that ? Now that I have ADSL, I might even be tempted to get my ass kicked on-line :D

played it at xmas on my step dad computer (he got it as a present, I find it funny that he should start computer gaming at the age of 55)

quite good indeed, you can play the greeks pretty much as a AoE faction, but the deeper you go, the better you are at seizing specific potential match winning tactics that really separate it from AoE. Besides, the gameplay between the 3 different factions is genuinely different. Very good game overall, but the gathering food/wood part is as always busting my balls.

Red, I have been playing this game since a few days after Thanksgiving. I have only played one random game though, as I have been playing the Campaign.

I have just started on The Norse part of the campaign.... scenario #20 or something like that.

I think it is an excellent game, but much more difficult to remember which units counter each other.

So basically I have spent time amassing an economy and attacking simply with numbers .. in the campaign.

The one Random game I played was a 2 vs. 2 . Me and a computer player vs. 2 computer players. Islands type game. Lots of ships. My type of game. :) Time enough to be isolated to build economy and lots of sea action.

After I finish the campaign and play several games of random, I'll get back to you on the challenge. But I don't have ADSL and that may pose a problem. We'll see.

By the way... my times for the first game I ever played... the random game... were 7:15... 15:43 ... and 21:01.

I'll have to improve but I think I can. I Still can't scout worth a shit though. :D

I should get the patch and see if it works on my machine yet. I'm sure Rachel or Sean would be happy to kick anyone who wants to play online against other CGers.

Why be afraid? It's only a dumb game and you can't be any worse than I am. Trust me. :D
