Bland and generic. Basically, there is no story and you're not given much reason why you're doing what you're doing. The campaign is basically one long tutorial that locks units out until that specific has a use for them. Even with the 50% off coupon most people received, it's still not worth it.

Also the game is pretty much dead now, don't expect any more DLC or new content to come, all been shelved. because the company is now moved onto AOE4 (and might mess that game as well).

Not touched it, but you could easy see from the early vids they released before the game was even out, the thing was going to be an epic failure. I also got a 50% off coupon, in fact, there were so many people getting one, you just couldn't shift them!!!

"Might", do I sense hope?

Thanks for all the replies everyone. Glad I made the right decision to stay away from this

Well there is always hope that they might not mess up AOE 4, but considering that relic failed to heed what the community was telling them, released a game that was heavy influenced by the MOBA genre. and basically released a game that was really short on content. I do sense that AOE 4 might end up going the same route.

I like your optimism, but we both know the sad truth here.
