    I have played it for a number of hours now, and enjoyed it quite a bit. But I didn't finish the campaign, and doubt I ever will. Just didn't "grab" me enough.

    But I'll probably get back into it again sometime. All and all a solid strategy game.

    It's nice but didn't grab me as much as AOE2 or Age of Mythology. It seems to be harder though, even the beginning levels.

    I think it is a nice RTS. Nothing to knock your socks off, but it is very well done in many different aspects. (i do like the revised naval forces as well)

    Is it better than Rise of Nations now?

    Because from a pure gameplay point of view Rise of Nations was better than Age of Empires 2: Age of Kings.

    I would say that Age Of Empires 3 is better than rise of nations now! :)

    I see. I better get my hands on it then.

    It sucks though that even if I have an awesome graphics card I will not be able to run the game at max settings. It sucks that my X850XT does not have Pixel Shader 3. Means I can't use full sahdows in the game and the water won't look as good. Ah well it should still be fun to play so I must try and get it.

    AoEIII is a pretty demanding game. What do you mean by "mint" card and "loadsa" memory and "equivilant power to P4" Athlon?

    If you can give us the details, we may be able to tell you where your bottleneck is.

    Your system meets the minimum requirements to run the game, but you are on the lower end.

    Try turning down the settings in the game. Lower your screen resolution etc.
