System Requirements

The expansion plays smoothly and has no problems with crashing. Any system after Microsoft’s Windows XP can handle the game, even Windows 10. It only requires 2 GB of RAM to run properly on a computer.

Gameplay

When you start, you will be able to choose one of many nations. Each has its unique advantages and playstyles, which give the game a lot of replayability. The player must build up their base and military to battle it out against the other players, AI or real.

There also is a campaign that throws you into different situations to challenge you. It gets progressively harder with new units getting unlocked as it goes on.

New Features

This expansion brings a new campaign to the table in which you get to play in the Americas and experience the conflicts between the colonisers and the colonised. Also, colonies are now allowed to revolt against their overlords.

Stealth is a new addition. New units that are not automatically seen have been added, allowing you to sneak your way into enemy territory- This is unlike the prior automatic detection.

Alternatives

Age of Empires 2 is the predecessor to this game and varies fairly. The main difference is in the complexity, with the earlier edition being much more difficult to play. Also, AoE 3 has significantly faster playtime.

Civilization V is widely known as the best in the Sid Meier games. While the series differ from each other, if you enjoy a wider selection of civilizations and longer game times but less emphasis on day-to-day interactions, Civ 5 is the right game for you.

Solid playing

While Age of Empires has been around for a long time, it has aged well and remains relevant in the game community. Players who enjoy RTS strategy and civ building will want to try out this title. There are no downsides to playing the game.
