PostReview 12 - Age of Empires 2

Pros: -Historically accurate campaigns (If you get the full game)
-Easy + beginner friendly interface
-Addicting + tons of replay value
-Lots of other races + their own technology tree (If you get the full game)

Cons: -Graphics are less than average
-Gameplay feels very outdated, at least compared to newer RTSes
-Too little stuff to do in the demo
Summary: This was the reason why I love the Middle Ages. Age of Empires II was one of the few games, from my childhood, that managed to survive the test of time. Today, I download the demo and... I still love it. What does Age of Empires have that other RTSes don't? Well, it's nothing much due to my child self's low standards.

One of the pros listed is that you learn while you play the campaigns, at least, if you get the full version. Let's see, Joan of Arc, Barbarossa, Saladin, and more. Quite a package of learning and fun. Another is that, when I started to play this, it was easy to get though all of everything. And it's very addicting. You probably couldn't see why due to its "click to do everything" nature. And there are a lot of other races with their own technology tree, (You know, own set of available and unavailable technology) as well as their special unit when you build a Castle.

Every addicting thing has its cons, and Age of Empires II is no exception. The graphics are outdated, and thus, the graphics are less than average. And the gameplay... to, say, Starcraft II players, it seems a little too outdated. And this demo doesn't contain all of the good stuff (more campaigns, more game modes, etc.) has to offer.

Overall, a pretty good, but outdated, RTS.
