This series of games has always been known to cheat. I have played many few games in which the AI comes at me with huge armies of expensive units, yet when I invade their camp I discover it's all apparently funded by a dozen villagers, a couple of farms and trading post! That is a silly way to beef up a weak AI opponent. No enemy who has just come at you with 40 cannons, 200 cavalry and infantry, and been wiped out, could repeat the attack in the same force just minutes later. It is simply impossible. That said, you don't get this when playing against non-cheating humans.
The addition of trading posts gives players something substantial to fight about and defend, though the AI never seems very interested in acquiring them or defending them. Hence, you may send your explorer to build on most of the trading post sites without problem. The ships are more interesting and varied to use, though the much-loved "fire ships" of old have gone. It also lacks the ability to garrison buildings with anything other than villagers. That's disappointing, as this made towers very powerful (perhaps too powerful). I run mine on a really fast PC, but the save game feature still takes a staggering length of time to complete.
This collection comprises the original game, plus the Warchiefs and Asian Dynasties expansion packs. These give variety, on top of a game that already offers an almost infinite number of games. As with any game, it is worth downloading the patches, which fix a few bugs and improve a couple of things.
The single player campaign is weak. The story has elements of Pirates Of The Caribbean here and there. It's not exactly original. As ever, it pits you against waves of enemies that appear out of nowhere, while crippling your ability to fight back by preventing you from upgrading or building any powerful units, or building walls to defend a town. It's an outdated and frankly tiresome way to design a game. Having just a couple of blokes armed with a stick to fight off a huge army armed to the teeth, is not my idea of balanced gameplay. I played games designed this way 20 years ago, and I want something a bit more intelligent these days.
While the high point of this series is likely to remain AOE2 (Age Of Kings) I am sure you won't be disappointed in AOE 3. It has all the fun elements of the previous outings, plus much-improved graphics, but does lose some key features of AOE2. The campaign is annoyingly old-fashioned and boringly difficult to complete, but stick to skirmish mode and all is well.
While the previous games have focussed on medieval times, this game takes you into a much more recent era when all the colonial powers are battling it out over the New World. You have access to some great weaponry (my personal favourite are the rockets) and the campaign is relatively engaging with some diverse missions, including a memorable one where you have to survive the cold by hiding in caves with a campfire while your enemies patrol outside looking for you.
I had a lot of fun with the online portion of this game as well, and it's nice to level up your home city (a new feature in the series) to get little perks that you can call in if you get enough XP during a game.
My only criticism with this version of the game - I could not get the key provided with this to activate on Steam, even though their support page says that you should be able to! You do however get all of the expansions, so if this isn't a concern for you, this is a great complete Age of Empires 3 set.
