      "I don't know about you but if my video game doesn't include some epic battle or huge Gladiator style fight then it isn't much of a game. Stuff like Skyrim let's you down with its storyline and the overall quality of the bosses so much you have to install a DLC so you can span 100 dragons and feel like theres really something cool going on. Oh.. that's just me. But regardless Age of Empires II really brings back the feeling of epic fights to the PC war simulator genre and will surely satisfy a need for "epic" immersion."

      "As an avid gamer, this is a great game to play! I love shooter games but I am so tired of getting getting teams that troll or do not take the game seriously. I love that this game is about being the "lone survivor", so my performance is solely dependent upon me, rather than dealing with afkers, trolls, or bots."

There's war and death and murder happening all around you and there's you and whatever choice you choose to make to help your warfront. You put your head down, lasers whizzing all around you, and you run."
