Fighting the world is getting real old real fast.

The Mayan distaste for gates provided a hazard for the should-be-killing-each-other Red, Orange, Yellow, and teal army.

It kinda has the problem of Aliens CM where the AI will completely ignore NPC's it should be clawing and just run straight for you instead. They did polish this game up a little bit, but it's all on the surface. The only advantages I see is ease of installation and the wonderful Steam Workshop, for which I've forgiven Valve of many sins.

I hate to sound cheap but this was a $10 game. For what they gave us it wasn't worth $20. Just a thought from a cheapskate.

I tend to judge what I've spent on games by how long I play them and if they were enjoyable.

Battlefield 2 - $50 - 799 hours played - $0.06/hr - fun - success
Space Marine CE - $70 - 938 hours played (o.O) - $0.08/hr - fun - success
Far Cry 3 - $50 - 39 hours played - $1.28/hr - fun - success

However, I have too many fails in cheap games I've bought but never touched because I'd been too busy playing BF2 or Space Marine. If you're only going to play about two hours of AoE2 HD, I'd say your money was wasted.

/Your thoughts, insights, and musings on this matter intrigue me

This new HD version doesn't seem to contain the Conquerers expansion, does it?

"you're deadweight adams."

Naw but adams is getting better, he just needs to learn how to micromanage and need better situational awareness.

3 humans and one adams) vs 3 hardest AI went pretty good today.

There is no excuse for this game to suffer from so much multilayer lag.

Ah yeah it is. That makes a difference. Still such an old thing you would expect it to run better.
