Age of Empires 3: Definitive Edition reviewed by Jon Bolding on PC.

  • wtf

    Ro YeRo YePred 2 urami
  • the biggest problem with the original AOE 3 is its distinct lack of being able to command more than 100 units, or even have that many...... it was a cut down, better looking, less enjoyable AOE 2. hopefully this fixed that, if it does, then hell yes..... considering ive played my fair share of AOE 2... even recently.

  • I would prefer a veteran aoe 3 player (not a part of the development team) to post a review. Someone who has some idea on what parameters to rate the DE on. This is a complex RTS game which can't be appreciated by some on the fly review. This is not to say that the game currently isn't riddled with bugs (which will hopefully be fixed as developers work on them).

  • I generally don't write comments but this review forced me to. Not only does the narrator have a disparaging tone throughout, but he is also biased and hateful of the game. At the time of writing, the review has just 950 thumbs up but 3K dislikes. This just about sums it up.

  • "The cards are too hard to understand." There is online guides for meta builds if you don't want to figure out the card system brah. Because of the cards it's the most player expressive RTS that anyone cares about where two people can play the same civ but play it miles differently with one person taking more unit shipments or some one taking more upgrades that will last till the end of the game. Often some where in the middle being a lot of people's set ups. When I notice people tend to take about half of the cards that are meta in a deck. It's the swapped out cards that help show who is newer or experienced to the game. With out the cards the play expressions is a matter of who has a better order in AoE2 when 3 having that order can be bad for what you want to do.

  • The reviewer keeps saying AOE3 is the 'weird' one, but fails to explain the wording. Exactly how it weird? Comparing to which "normal" RTS game? In which aspects? And if he finds the card system complicated, he should not play RTS game let alone "review" it and get payment for this job. Random unexplained words, undefined logic, lack of comprehensibility, totally a garbage review, 9/10 from me.

  • This ‘employee’ should be fired. He says the music was made better which is not true, there are major issues throughout the soundtrack if you listen to it. He just wanted to seem like he noted a single positive thing to avoid hate. He’s clearly an AOE2 fanboy who will whine about this game isn’t an AOE 2 2.0. Then, he said that “cavalry charges take down muskets”.... um... no.

Please, re-do this review and fire this Fortnite fan boy.

I will be unsubscribing until I see this video gone. Everyone boycott IGN. I will be unsubscribing newsletter and will no longer purchase this magazine.

  • I don't get the hate this game's been getting all these years. I've been consistently playing AoE3 since 2008 and I still find it just as much fun as the first time i played it. do people expect the developer to just recycle the same formula as AoE2 instead of experimenting with new features? Personally i find AoE2's mechanics too tedious and pointless and the economy is too complex for someone who just wants to start training musks and jump straight into action. Also i find the way you manage your deck to play different strategies and experiment with them on each civ very neat and adds tons of replayability value. In addition, the fact that they got rid of the grinding aspect is a great improvement especially for players who have been loyal to the title and don't feel like starting from the bottom.

  • "(The cards) It's extremely cool in theory but extremely confusing in practice" Dude, most cards are just crates of resources, stat bonuses or a bunch of the same unit. You don't need a physics degree to build your deck around your civ. I love AoE 2 but most differences between civs were the passive bonuses, the unique unit and which universal tecehnologies you could develop...
