    Its the 3rd installment in one of the biggest selling computer game series of all time.

    Age of Empires 3, its also big....

    Anyhow, All the threads I have read about it elsewhere are giving negative feedback....

    That's a shame - been looking forward to it heaps.

    It seems that a lot of the new games are getting negative feedback. I guess people (me included) just expect higher and higher quality of games. Well, so we should

    Yep, with every new game released the hounds move in to rubbish it and put everyone off, stupid behaviour.

    I ignore crap like that and try and filter out the kiddies looking for attention, worthwhile views can be found.


    The reason I mentioned the negative feedback in this case is because I looked on a number of forums i visit and near everybody was asking "is this it?" even posters who would no way lower themselves to bashing a game to be part of some idiotic crowd.

    I would have expected the much anticipated AOE3 impress at least a few people.

    Anyhow, i will reserve judgement till I have played the demo, though I am no longer in any rush

    Well I just spent some time with a friend playing the F.E.A.R demo. Quite long for a demo, and you can save. Quite excellent physics and detail and nice gruesome creepy bits too. The slowmo during battle was quite fun although friend sneered at it being "not realistic". I thought the creepy girl walking on the blood covered ceiling was not "realistic". But is was great - will buy that one. And I don't like a lot of FPSs. Did possibly seem to require a fairly grunty system though...

    What exactly about AOEIII that people are complaining about?

    I'm no gamer, but I have played these types: AOE, Rise of NAtions, Empire Earth, Rome: Total War etc, and they are very good. Makes me want to get an XP box just to play them.

    Another strangely good one is Children of the Nile.
