A battle strategy game that still holds up today

The Age of Empires II: HD Edition game allows you to build an army by creating a small village, gathering resources, and upgrading your technology. Build your forces and destroy your enemies with either a full frontal attack, or by denying them resources and picking them off one by one. The campaign mode has a historic story attached to each, and each is very well told and produced. The skirmishes are fun if you want a long and drawn out game. You may have mixed feelings about the HD side of this game. If you played the game years ago, it is going to look very similar to how you remember it. However, the new HD version is definitely sharper than the older version, and the colours are a little nicer too.

You probably won’t buy this game because of the HD remaster

Buy the Resident Evil 1 HD remaster or the Final Fantasy X/X2 HD remaster and you get good value for money because you can clearly see a massive difference compared to the original versions. You will not be bowled over by the high definition with Age of Empires II: HD Edition. If you are going to buy it, then buy it because you enjoyed the original game all those years ago and you want to smash online players or work your way through the campaigns again.
