What are your thoughts on m$ age of empires online?

Personally i think they have ruined one of their best franchises, and this comes from someone who still plays aoe 1/2/3... Seriously whats in these devs heads with their free premium ****.. Managed to only get 2 achievements in 2 hours since out of 41, you can get about 5 rest ou have to buy premium ****, why not just release the payed version.. /rant

I couldn't agree more. I loved Age of Empires III, and Online is just plain crap. The only way I can explain the high activity spot in the Games for Windows - LIVE section, is that there's suddenly a lot of unicorns popping up in the sewers below our cities who love to play crappy games and eat each others' s**t.

Seriously, why would they just rush on this game, the cartoony image that the game now has is just awful looking and the game mechanics arn't that great - especially the Achievements. Hate it.

Agreed, if they spent as much time as they spent with halo 4 or forzas, theyve wouda sat on a gold mine right now.. This kinda game youd expect from zynga (farmville etc).. They could easily release a patch for aoe 3 to support games for windows live and achievements.
