Age of Mythology transports players to a time when heroes did battle with monsters of legend and the gods intervened in the affairs of mortal men. Players wage war using human armies and diplomacy, progress through development ages, enhance military and economic performance with improvements, and manage economics through resource gathering and trade. Mythology enters the mix when players call upon the gods to act on their behalf or reinforce their armies with more than 20 mythological creatures. Ensemble Studios' new 3D engine adds a deep richness of graphical detail and creates a unique new title based on the ancient cultural history of the Greek, Norse, and Egyptian cultures, which are divided into nine detailed civilizations.
The peculiarity of Age of Mythology is thst you can choose your god and the game play is very much depend on which god you have chosen. Different gods have differrent units and even the resource collection style veries with god.Loki and Zeus are the most powerful gods. And it very difficult to say who is the better among them. There are lot of myth units and you will fall in love with one or two of them as you play.
As a RTS fan, I did enjoy AoM. It definitely had a different feel to it than the other Age games, but that didn't stop me from enjoying it. I well remember summoning various creatures and assaulting my brother's base while he desperately tried to defend it. I think I even have the collectors edition floating around somewhere.
Bottom line - maybe not a must get if you liked the other Age games, but a good RTS anyway.
