Age of Empires III: The Asian Dynasties review

  • New civs mix up familiar gameplay
  • Strategic options of new Export resource
  • The return of Wonders
  • Blah multiplayer additions
  • New campaigns are a little brief
  • Still AoE at heart, if that's a drawback

It's hard to believe that any two-year-old game could be livened up this much with an expansion pack, but Big Huge Games has pulled off this trick just about perfectly with The Asian Dynasties. While the core gameplay is still recognizable, this is a great facelift that makes an old friend look young again.
