Age of Empires is one of the most amazing and legendary civilization style strategy games that ever existed.

Now in this third part, you're taken into the New World. Players are able to develop European nations from the Age of Discovery through to the Industrial Age with Age of Empires III. There are eight playable nations that battle across a wide variety of lands - from the early beginning of the swamps of Florida to the Rocky Mountains. Age of Empires III lets you recruit Native American tribes along the way and with them, try to seize control of trade routes while being supported by your Empire back in Europe.

There's no doubt that visually, Age of Empires III looks superb with some of the best graphics ever seen in the Age of Empires series. However, Age of Empires III developers seem to have concentrated on graphics more than the realism aspect. An exception to this is the fact that you are supported by your home European nation in your quest to plunder the New World which is something unseen in previous versions.

However, it is attention to detail and unfaithfulness to the realities of history that really let Age of Empires III down. In Age of Empires III, American Indians are portrayed as mercenaries rather than spiritual tribes and gold mines suddenly appear hundreds of years before they ever did!

Age of Empires III looks great and has the potential to be a great game but the developers probably need to pay more attention to historical facts than the graphics themselves.
