Age of Mythology is one of the most classic real time strategies around and this expansion improves it by introducing giant Titans to the mix.
Age of Mythology is a spin off from the Age of Empires series that first saw a release back in 1997. The original Age of Empires was touted as being a blend of Civlization and Warcraft and certainly did it's best to live up to those lofty ambitions. It had a lot of what you'd expect from a real time strategy game. It had base building, resource gathering and troop management. But it also had Civlization like technology development. The main gimmick of Age of Empires was that as you developed your empire you had a number of criteria to meet and if you met them your empire advanced an 'Age' and you got access to bigger and better technology.
Age of Mythology took this winning formula but put in the context of ancient mythologies. This time round you were building the armies of the ancient Greek gods and fighting them against Egyptian deities and hordes of their devoted followers. It was a great transition and one that built a huge fan base and multiple iterations.
The Titans Expansion does pretty much what it says on the tin. It adds enormous new titan units that the player can acquire for their faction. These new units are devastatingly powerful and each factions titan units have a unique feel, look and skill set. The expansion also adds a new set of single player missions based around the titular titans as well as adding them for use in the already hectic multiplayer mode.
If you're a fan of the game already then we heartily recommend getting this expansion. Although the singleplayer portions may be a little lack luster compared to the original offerings, the titans themselves are special enough to warrant a look.
- Titans Are Huge and Impressive
- Adds a Whole New Play Style to the Game
- Single Player Portions Are a Little Underwhelming
