    I really miss this game, and I've been looking for possible legacy servers being active (I doubt I'll ever find any).

    Whilst I admit it's a good fun game, looks nice, and in the future could be even better, I don't think it's as good as AoE II or AoM. Age of Mythology is my most played game of all time, but I just don't feel like playing this as much.

    Graphics are perfectly fine for this game, better than previous titles with exception to AoE3, they support a wide array of systems, this is so the game is able to run on even some pretty old systems(support more system = more potential players and profits).

    There is no disc for this game, no such thing, it's entirely digital distibution, the only item you'd find in a store purchased copy is a key to redeem the content you have purchased, eg. a civ.

    The game is currently at 6 civs, 3 provide a free-to-play option, these are referred to as premium civs(with a free option), the other three are pro civs and can only be played if they are purchased(they also start at level 20, where as premium civs start at level 1 - though you can skip the tutorial part and start at 3).

    Current civs: Babylonian, Celtic, Egyptian, Greek, Norse & Persian.

    I've played since beta myself(so quite some time now) and whilst the game isn't perfect it's making huge progress(there has been some radical changes to the game's direction since launch).

    If any of you liked previous titles and are true AoE fans, you wouldn't judge the game on the graphics alone. I know i disliked them at first myself(back in beta), but it's something that has grown on me a great deal, once you start to enjoy the actual gameplay, the graphics take a backseat to everything and if you're like me, you may actually come to like them(as i have).

    AoE 1 looked awful(be honest with yourself), but that was awesome game for it's day.

    Some of the most successful games to date have had awesome gameplay but below average or even in some cases *bad* graphics. If you play games purely to been impressed by fancy graphics, i'd suggest watching movies instead if all you're after is special effects and that *wow!* factor. Great games do not need great graphics.

    For those of you wondering, you only pay for the disc then sign up for free and finally play game, no WoW "pay for play" BS. Just have the internet, buy the game, sign up, log into the game, and fun times had by all.

    Once you understand that graphics dont mean **** when making a game, its exactly the same as a regular age of empires, only what would be one level in AoE 1 is now a very small quest on a giant map 1000x the size of any AoE map before.

      Ok, the statement that graphics don't make any difference whatsoever is going way too far. Say rather, that the level of graphics necessary for quality depends on the genre of a game. For example, Elder Scrolls demands a higher graphical quality than Pokemon. Why? Because the goals and art direction of the two games are totally different and each must have graphics tailored to their purpose. If Skyrim came out with Morrowind graphics, I (along with 99% of all Elder Scroll fans, both old and new) would be furious. And the reason is because the goal of Elder Scrolls has been total immersion since day one and significant graphical improvements from one game to the next has been a major part of their pursuit of that goal since the earliest Elder Scrolls games. Now, I think that this level of graphics is acceptable for the art direction and genre of this game. I actually kinda like it. But to say that graphics mean absolutely nothing is just absurd.
