    age of mythology? like age of empires, but you get to choose ancient civilisations with different god powers to help you, and you can build titans.

    I second Rise of Nations. Great game in it's day. Wasn't a fan of the later technology stages, but overall was excellent.
    I love rise of nations, just like to play a couple games every so often. I wish they would remake it.

    Not really new, but Civilization IV is a badass game.
    Civ 4 is very good, I'd still choose that over 5 any day.

    Cossacks might be worth looking at. It's pretty damn old (around the same as AoE 2, possibly older) but is still fun.
    The expansion, Art Of War is also good, adds a few more nations and a load of campaigns and starting parameters for random maps. You should be able to get them both for ~£5.

    Cossacks 2 had a good campaign mode, but the random maps were annoying as the game speed is not variable, people walk slowly and the maps are huge = spending long periods of time just moving armies around.

    age of mythology one of my favourite games - I can recite nearly all the campaign by heart :P I'm so sad

    Supreme commander is a pretty awesome RTS, Ive not played the latest one yet but imagine its just as good. Starcraft 2 is another great one. Both have bigo online communities so you can alwys find gmes online which is a big for me as playing against the.computer gets boring whatever game it is.

    But if you want to experience age of empires again but little different try star wars galactic battlegrounds. Absolute class, basically a starwars version of age of.empires! Pretty old now though and not sure if its still played online..

    Starcraft II has the same mechanics but is much faster and has a futuristic setting. It is also much, much more competitive and better online. I got to brigadier on AoE3 when it first came out and everyone just disconnected when they started losing. You don't have these amateur problems with SCII, also it is due for an expansion within the next year (roughly) so there will be a skill-reset after a while. If you want to give it a taste before buying, go on team liquid and watch some of the SCII streams on the right hand side.

    Rise of Nations is a commendable choice IF you can get a mod that disables nukes. It is more civilizational then the 1-base/city style of AoE. It's also strongly dated and further from AoE style then SC2.

    I have no idea why they chose to discontinue the AoE franchise.

    It was the best RTS series out there IMO.

    Total War series?

    Rome: Total War, in my opinion, is one of the greatest RTS/turn-based games ever created.

    I remember Empires Dawn of the Modern World Rise of Nations might be worth a look as well
    If I could rep you, I would. Rome Total War is FANTASTIC! Along with the whole total war series!

    SupCom2 is a shambles in comparison to SupCom+FA. Do not even consider buying it!

    Looking to get a hold of a 3 copies for myself and 2 friends - the gold edition is only selling for £7.70 on amazon!

    So I absolutely loved Age of Empires 2 and 3 and Empires Dawn of the Modern World if anybody every played that? Anyway I was wondering if anyone new of any games similar to those that are a bit newer but would still work on a fairly standard PC that's a few years old. It was considered a gaming pc when I bought it but is nothing compared to gaming pc's now.

    Anyway yeah, looking for similar game play to the age of empires style games. Anybody have any ideas?
    Try Tribal wars. Just type it in.
