Inside Mac Games has posted a hands-on preview of Age of Empires III, based on a recent beta of the Mac version. Here's a clip from the preview:

Previous Age of Empires games made use of very pretty, but very 2D graphics. Such will not be the case with AoE3, which uses an entirely 3D engine to mesmerize players. AoE3 will support plenty of 3D buzzwords, like bump and specular mapping, tone mapping, dynamic shadows, real-time lighting effects and advanced water effects. AoE3 also boasts an advanced physics engine that will bring a new level of realism to RTS gaming on the Mac OS. The Reader's Digest gist of the previous is that it'll take a fairly hardcore machine to experience this game in its full glory.
AoE III recently went gold and is scheduled to ship sometime next week. Be sure to check out the preview by following the link below.

Age of Empires III is currently available for pre-order through Macgamestore.com for $49.95. Place your pre-order by following the buy link below.
