IMG Reviews Age of Mythology
12:30 PM | Johan HansÚn | Comment on this story

To conclude the Age of Mythology week here at IMG we have posted our own review of this fantasy based real-time strategy game by Ensamble Studios. While based in the historical cultures of the Greeks, Norse and Egyptians the game focuses on the cultures mythology and implements it both in the story and gameplay.

From the review:

Age of Mythology includes the notion of gods. As you advance through each technological age, you're given a choice between two gods to worship for that age. Pick wisely. Each god and deity comes with its own set of blessings, units, and technologies. And the powers and abilities they bestow on you aren't unimportant. While one god might give your opponent the ability to create a new type of war machine, another god might give you the ability to create something specifically designed to decimate that machine. As you play, a message alerts you to the god your opponent has chosen. Not so great if you've advanced first, but an excellent piece of information if you've been lagging behind. In this way, the game stays incredibly well-balanced and fair. If you've learned enough to choose wisely, that is.
