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.
