    "I personally prefer this one over Age of Empires 3 due to the amount of DLCs, civilizations, and other tech it has to offer. I mean, it isn't free, but the purchases are worth it imho."

    "Always wanted a Greek-themed AoE with gods and all that stuff. This is a pretty good match. Not the best Age of Empires game overall, but it has the best theme out of everyone :D"

    "Not the best one, personally speaking, seems like the lwoest of all AoE games, but it's still good, and that says a lot about the quality of the game when even the worst game they have is still phenomenal!!"
