    "A new iteration for a well loved and well played game which garnered a loyal following back then. The game used to be a lot of fun and the new version delivers. Everything looks sharper, of course, and has been duly modernized and adapted to 2017 sensibilities, but the core of the game stays the same, with the same attention to details and to smooth interface. The result is a classic, where I invested a lot of time, and emerged happy and totally surprised to look at the real world again."

    "Age of Empires 3 is a worthwhile, albeit dated way to get into PC RTS games. There are far more advanced titles in this genre but I liked how this game sticks to the basics."

    "RTS games are blowing up in popularity and never have played those types of games I decided to look for PC RTS games for beginners. One of the games I found was Starcraft. This game is a ton of fun, but it feels really outdated and not like the other RTS games I've seen. If you're wanting to learn how to play RTS games, I recommend looking elsewhere for a more updated game."
