Inside Mac Games has posted a preview of the new Age of Empires III expansion, The Asian Empires from publisher MacSoft. Here's a clip from the preview:
Back in the not too distant day, I did the Warchiefs review here at IMG. Warchiefs was an interesting expansion pack. While it did add new factions to play, the European powers had to have some tweaking to balance gameplay out. Not so in The Asian Dynasties. In fact, the early game seems biased slightly against the European powers, but not so horribly that itís not fun to play the Europeans anymore. Reading between the lines here, thereís nothing in this expansion that changes how the European powers play. This isnít a problem, I donít think, as the variety of the new powers offsets that. Playing an Asian power is different than playing a Native power which is different than playing a European power. This is how it should be.Follow the link below to read the full preview, and stay with IMG for a full review of the expansion upon release.
