Sometimes we want a fairly simple game too play but can't seem to find a game thats worth playing. But AOE 2 is a great companion to play with your friends via LAN or Microsoft server. Overall the game is to test if you have skills such as speed and the proper usage of your army. I give it 9.5 out of 10 as the graphics are pretty old for now. The good thing is that you get to run this on some random integrated video card on your pc. Such as the Intel GMA950.
