Oh wow, I grew up on the original game. One of my all time favorites. The Free to Play designation worries me, though. I'd rather just pay like $5 for a quality, full product.

God me too =( don't let Age of Empires be ruined by microtransactions... Or pay for extra turns daily or some crap. I feel a massive flop incomming =(

Free to play?? Gawd dammit, Microsoft. I love the AoE series, but may very well not even install this if the IAPs are insane like most other F2P games. That's why Age of Empires Online sucked and failed.

Just let me pay a fair price for the damn game and be done with it!

LOL! You'll be able to buy it outright on WP8. On Android it will be free with IAP, just to piss off Android users.

IAP ruins everything xD. It's Ruined. What they will do is slow down the pace of the game by like 30 and then charge you to get more people and to speed up the game.

The game looks decent; nothing too amazing. I've always been a fan of Age of Empires since the beginning. These graphics and animations don't seem similar to the previous games which really turns me off. IMO they should have considered pricing the game at around $2.99 and if sales weren't satisfying they could take the IAP approach.

Please no in app purchases, please no in app purchases, please no in app purchases. I'd rather pay $5 or $10 for the game and have it be the FULL game than have it be ruined by stupid pay-for-energy crap.

Sweet. I love when quality rts games make it to mobile platforms. Thanks for telling us.

I agree, loved the PC games, these graphics actually look worse than the PC games in the 90s, but hopefully they are just early alpha renders. Also, in app purchase is a bad move here. I would have paid a few bucks like others have said.

Is Age of Empires like the old school Warcraft 1-3? I have been looking for a game like that. I wish Blizzard would turn those into mobile games. I tried to put my Warcraft 2 disk in but apparently Windows 7 didn't like the Windows 95 disc and it wouldn't read it.

Still have fond memories of playing the Original Age of Empires. Can't wait for it to make a return :)

LOVE AoE. Still play Age of Kings and Age of Mythology, years and years after release. Best gaming times was when I founded and ran an AoE scenario design team. Looking forward to this!

I CAN'T WAIT for "Free to Pay" apps to die a horrible death! Why can't we just get a good game and pay $15-$20? No, they have to bleed us in perpetuity for the dubious "privilege" of playing their shitty game!

I grew up on the first one, and still play it to this day. But as others have said, I feel like this will be a micro-transaction hell. If there's even a single one, I won't be downloading it. I can't stand micro-transactions and I seriously hope they die soon...

I was a huge fan of this series. I'm sure that there will be IAP's, which will then some people away from playing. Like others have mentioned I'd rather pay a premium to avoid ads and IAP's. The game looks a little too cartoonish also, but as long as the game play is good I'll be able to overlook it.
