Age of Empires III

Age of Empires III will offer gamers the next level of realism, with advanced battle physics and unparalleled visual detail. The new game picks up where Age of Empires II: Age of Kings left off, placing gamers in the position of a European power determined to explore, colonize and conquer the New World. This time period features stunning scenes, from towering European cathedrals to courageous tribes of Native Americans, and spectacular combat with Industrial Age units like rifled infantry, cavalry and tall ships bristling with cannons.

In this action adventure tale of historical fiction, players take on the role of Morgan Black and his family, struggling against the hostile wilderness and a mysterious cult that's crept in from Europe.

In a series of 24 scenarios divided into three acts, Morgan Black and his descendants help the Aztecs resist conquest by Spanish conquistadors, pit the French against the British in the French and Indian War and help Simon Bolivar lead revolutions in South America.

Brilliant

Kalahari make it very easy to buy on line. Thankyou

Age of Empires III

We bought this for a very reasonable price and my son currently plays it daily. Good visuals - history lesson on the side. Good buy!

AOE III

Great game, very different from 1 & 2. My son (5yrs) and I have spent hours playing it.

Well done

I am a huge AOE fan and this one takes the cake. This is a must have for any strategy player. I find that the game is more based on strategy and planning than of bulding a heap load of soldiers and attacking. Well done!!!

The Mug Club

Me and my associates find this game to be a crime against humanity. A word of advice, if you are going to buy it, do so from Kalahari because the limited edition mug is the best thing in the box.

Bland and boring

I was really looking forward to a great game and i'm a big Age of Empires fan. I think it's a big let down. Like most games these days the gameplay is boring. Everything is given to you on a silver platter (resources, upgrades etc) and the understanding of the game lacks logic. It's relatively unrealistic and craves creativity. A 2 year old could play this game. But great graphics.

this game is worth the buck...

Got the game today, and I am definately addicted... The graphics and gameplay is absolutely excellent, not to mention the free t-shirt and drinking cup.

split comunity

after playing the demo i was very disapointed the game is the first AOE game that has to my knoledge been so badly recieved the first 2 were master pieces of game dynamics but this time not only have they changed it for the worse but they have reduced the number of playbel civs to 8 ( thats the lowest yet) it covers what they should have fully covered in aoe2:conquerers exp they also miss out some of the mojor historical events going on at the time Such as the napolionic wars ,the african settlement, the opium wars ETC. they arent letting you play as any of the native american tribes or empires your troops dont upgrade to new kinds anymore and you cant play the same civ against the same civ eg: spain vs spain id rate it a disgrace to the aoe franchise

Download the Demo!

The graphics is excellent and the gameplay very good. The new Home City and the Trading routes / posts assist in getting in resources faster which gives you more options for your strategy. The experience that you gain in one campaign is transferred to the next - something that can give you quite an advantage in the long run. Seems like fun! The Trial Version can be downloaded at www.ageofempires.com. It is 360 Mb in size, so do not try to download over a modem!
