MacNN is offering a new review of the recent Age of Empires III expansion, The WarChiefs. The expansion further expands the depth of AoE III with a roster of new features including playable Native American civilizations, A 15 mission single-player campaign, and a host of other updates and additions. MacNN gave the game a score of 4.5 out of 5.

From the review:

The War Chiefs is an expansion for Age of Empires III that allows play as one of three new civilizations – Aztec, Iroquois, or Sioux. While Age of Empires places the focus on a European home city and settlement, The War Chiefs moves the perspective of the game to native civilizations as a way of mixing things up a bit. The Aztec civilization is based upon a strong infantry; Iroquois strong artillery and siege weaponry; and Sioux a very strong cavalry.

The War Chiefs places even more emphasis on military development and war fighting than does the basic game. Instead of economic improvements, most buildings offer military improvements. Another example of this change in emphasis is the “all military to this location” feature in exchange for resource trading. This button is located at the bottom portion of the mini map and orders every military unit that you control to one location on the map. This is helpful when your military unit size has out grown your saved groupings and cuts back on the time it takes to order all groups to fight in one area of the map. It is a fun feature but sometimes becomes irritating when an ally needs resources and you realize the familiar resource trading option has been eliminated from this game.
