Edit - Spanish are good too for the Conquistadors.

Persians for the mother f^ckin' can of whoop-ass you can unleash with Elite Elephants. Also, the Franks and Mongols are good for horse infantry.

This. The Celts and the Britons. Persians couldn't hurt to try either.

I freaking love that game.

Im pretty sure my disc is scratched to hell, but its like 12 bucks to buy now


For $10 I got AOE Gold, AOE2 and the AOE2 expansion, but it came in a pretty crappy jewel case.

I don't normally advertise Wal Mart since I work at one of their competitors, but that's probably where you'll find it cheapest.
#25
yeah, this game is fun. i was the celts and got owned again. partly cause my teamates always suck so I get absolutely no help from them.

i think its aztec time.

byzantines or turks

cataphracts can inflict trample damage which is ace, and the turkish janissaries are really quite effective gunpowder units.


that or use the "how do you turn this on" cheat to fill your ranks with Shelby Cobras with guns.

those things are intense (the cobras). Britons are usually my favorite. I keep the longbowmen inside my walls and shoot at attackers over the walls. Those guys combined with trebuchets make a tough fighting machine.
#28
Celts, or Brits, Vikings for water, Mongols for cavalry, Teutons if you don't mind the fact that the knights are really slow movers. That game has to be one of the best ever (far better IMO than AOM).

British Longbowmen. Get a group of 40 and you're literally unstoppable. Anytime anything gets near you, right click and they die. Buildings take literally seconds to demolish and no-one can reach you.

This is a great game. Most of the civilisations are good, they all just have different strengths and weaknesses.

Depends what you wanna do - for Infantry, celts/vikings/goths are the best, for archery go with china/britons - Just look at the civ descriptions & you shou;d be able to figure t out. TBH,. they're pretty same-y anyway, theres' a couple of boosts and what-have-you. The franks are good for cavalry and Knights
(What? I had to avoid homework in my school days somehow )
EDIT: If you're using the expansion, Aztecs are the best for Infantry

I like the japanese, byzantine or britons the most. They've got good infantry, cavalry and archers respectively.

With or without expansion?
With - Koreans, bish. Turtle boats ftw.
Without - Britains, because... I'm English.

Persian elephants are expensive, britons are the best cause every attack is backed up by longbow men

You can easily play online on IGZones, there are a lot of people that play there and it's really easy to set up a game. My favourite civs are japanese, britons, chinese and teutons if i'm against a melee civ
