MacGamez Reviews AoE II
10:38 AM | Noah Brimhall | Comment on this story

MacGamez has posted a review of the new Bold title Age of Empires II. This generally positive review spends a good deal of time focusing on improvements over the original Age of Empires.

[In Age of Empires] unit control was a major pain... villagers had to be constantly supervised to ensure they were productive, and grouped formations of troops tended to split apart into disorganized rabbles as they tried to reach their destination.... Thankfully, many of these shortcomings have been remedied with the game's sequel, Age of Empires II: Age of Kings.
Even though the review is very positive, there are some issues that bother the reviewer, including the lack of GameRanger support in Mac OS X and some bugs.
Peter Tamte of Bold Games has promised to release a patch that will fix many, but not all of the problems.
Head over to MacGamez for the full review, and for even more information, check out IMG's coverage of the upcoming patches and IMG's preview.
