Hello and welcome to games like Age of Empires. Let’s start with Age of Mythology Ensemble Studios, who created Age of Empires decided to make a spin-off series based on mythological beliefs. So here game takes place in a lost land of Atlantis and focuses on the famous Greek, Egyptian and Norse myths and legends. So, to say short – it’s an Age of Empires, just with a mythological setting. So be prepared to fight almighty Kraken, who isn’t that big as legends describe. Definitely smaller than your mom. All in all, game is really fun to play and it’ a must try for every Age of Empires fan. Rise of Nations: Extended Edition Rise of Nations was released in 2003, but despite the age it still looks really good. I wish that somebody said that about me. “Oh, despite the age he is ridiculously good looking”. Said to me no one ever.

So let’s look at second part of Empire Earth. It’s way less outdated than the first, and way less terrible than the third.
Here, according to a game description, you will become the greatest conqueror of all time. And in reality it could be other way around. You could actually suck at this game and be conquered all the time. Just like in real life. Warcraft 3 Warcraft 3 was released in 2002, so it’s an old game, but not too long ago, in 2018, Blizzard issued an update for it, supporting widescreen monitors, adjusting viewpoint and making it look like a new game.

Game is still popular, so you definitely will. Bannermen Alright, this is a shot into the darkness, because game isn’t released yet.
