    A bit expensive but shiiieeeeeet, this is Age of Empires 2 man!

    Anyway, if you don't already see where I'm going with this, allow me to spell it out: the only meaningful MMORPG "endgame" -- i.e., something novel to do after the progression process is over -- is that of the sandbox.

    19€ is much for a game that is remade in HD(1920x1080 resolutions) and not just scaled up like a silly goose? Also it is now optimized for Win7/8, I can't play my AoE2 on my Windows 7, it just crashes, tried searching online but nothing worked.

    This is the best Strategy game in the existence, it's been what, 14 years since its release? Many, MANY people grew up playing this game, I told my raid about this(25m) last night just as raid ended, a lot of people were excited.

    Also as a nice bonus, the HD edition contains the expansion too

    I get it, apparently it was a huge hit back in the day but i think it's just lazy cash crab. They should make a sequel or a remake instead of tying a corpse to a pole to make it look alive again.

    Wo Lo Looooo!

    I really liked Age of Empires and Age of Empires 2. Too bad Ghostcrawler killed the franchise.

    I'm so happy. I can't express this in enough words.

    HD intro video please.
    I don't think this matters nearly as much as you think it does.

    I... Don't see any improvements except for the water... And will the workshop really be used? This game isn't exactly that popular nowadays.

    Still an excellent game, but I don't really notice the difference in graphics as being so huge that it was worth reworking for it. Guess they'll still get my money, though.

    Good game but this seems like an unecessary purchase for me. Good for the people that are excited though.

    Still waiting on my Age of Mythology II game.
    Being critical is a burden which some people loves to bear.

    How would altering a graphics engine mess up the original gameplay?

    Seriously though, calling this a HD remake is a bit of a stretch. Well, yes it's HD in the sense that it supports HD resolutions, but when I read HD, I imagine the textures being revamped too. I'll stick to the original AoE 2 if I need my fix.. thanks.

    Age of Mythology doesn't need a HD version yet. It needs a sequel. Gief Middle-Age RTS, all the cannons and spaceships in Age of Empires III and Starcraft 2 is making me hunger for monsters and swords!

    There are already patches out to play it with full resolution, no scaling.

    Infact, if you check out the unofficial expansion, Forgotten Empires, it has balancing changes, new races, pop cap increase, widescreen patch all baked in.
    This "HD" remake is actually feeble compared to Forgotten Empires. But hopefully it will be easy for them to re-release Forgotten Empires on Steam Workshop..

    Lets hope for that, I guess. If the AoE 2 community will be revived thanks to this - I'll be happy. But I'm rather skeptical, haven't seen threads about this game on different forums for a long time.
