Look, a lot of games come out each year. More games were released this year over last. A lot’s changed in this decade in gaming. As a result, it’s becoming increasingly harder to find the time to play them for review, or play anything else for fun. So yes, there’s going to be glaring omissions and other oddities, but at least understand there’s just a lot of fucking games right now. And a lot of them are good. So let’s kick this thing off!
Age of Empires II: The Age of Kings remains the best reviewed Age of Empires game in the series history. Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition celebrates the 20th anniversary of its release with a whole host of improvements, an expansion with new civilization, Ultra HD graphics up to 4K resolution, and a complete modernization of the gameplay. This is a “definitive edition” that lives up to the name. Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition is a game that’s aged like a fine wine.
