Apps & Games content ratings on Softonic

Content ratings help you understand the type of content you might find in an app or game, so you can decide if they are suitable for you and your family.

What do the ratings actually tell me?

Content ratings describe the minimum age we feel the content is suitable for. It does not indicate that the app was specifically designed for that particular age, or if a certain level of skill is required to play the game or use the app.

Where can I find the content ratings?

You will find the content ratings on every app or game page.

Why are some apps or games unrated?

If an app or game does not have a rating, it means that it has not yet been rated, or it’s been rated and we’re working to update the page.

Rating Systems

Softonic uses the rating systems by PEGI and ESRB. The ratings you see may vary by country or region.

Conquer the New World with the classic third part

Nick Mead

Articles Age of Empires
  • Superb graphics
  • Some realistic elements and gameplay
  • Historical facts and scenarios wrong in parts

It's the dawn of a new age in real-time strategy (RTS) games. A brave New World is rising – a hostile yet beautiful world, filled with innovative gameplay, new strategic scenarios, eye-searing graphics and much more.

In this action adventure tale of historical fiction, players take on the role of Morgan Black and his family, struggling against the hostile wilderness and a mysterious cult that's crept in from Europe. In a series of 24 scenarios divided into three acts, Morgan Black and his descendants help the Aztecs resist conquest by Spanish conquistadors, pit the French against the British in the French and Indian War and help Simon Bolivar lead revolutions in South America.

Not only are you in command of large and diverse armies of infantry, cavalry and artillery, but also Native American warriors, mercenaries and tall ships. You can assign different formations to your army for different strengths and weaknesses, or have the game automatically choose the most appropriate formation. Shingles, shutters and whole towers may fly off a building and interact with the terrain, such as crashing into nearby water. This next generation effect is done on the fly so that each building always has a unique destruction, no matter how many times you see it.

"Edited Version of Last Review"

Another reviewer claimed that this was no better than AoE 1 and 2. I don't know how 3 isn't better than 1 or 2....If you claim this then please explain. 3 is great. The demo provided here is great. My only comment is that is that in these types of games you seem to either win...or lose, and that is pretty much determined within the first 20 minutes of the game; once key positions have been gained, trade routes claimed and and advances made, it's pretty hard for you or an enemy to make a come back. What this means is, it's either an enjoyable but quite boring walk over, or a frustrating. total defeat by a far more advanced civilization....The ships are beautful and the movements of the tiny characters are great.
