I just wanted to make this new topic to discuss about some goods and bads of AoC IV, since it transformed from old AoC III.
So, here's my opinion of AoC IV compared to AoC III
AoC Iv has a nice GUI and diplomacy options, making the game more realistic (no Total War and Land-Water-Land attacks activated)
Mostly noted by my brother, the AI in AoC III is more powerful than the AI in AoC IV. The AI now acts weirdly, passively or even seems like surrendering. (I had make a topic about it)
Backstory: (why I am copying "Doof" from P&F)
I was excited to unlock all maps and modding, knowing that my brother old fun, the American map (he used to play American Map in AoC III) is available.
The disapointing think is that the map looks "unsatisfying"
(Sorry Mr. Aschwanden, not meaning to insult you, I know its a true hard work to finish it!)
Actually, the accuracy of the map and the scenarios plus the nations in AoC III is much better than AoC IV, that my brother loses appetite for the AoC IV. If I bought the maps with real "papers", it would not beneficial to purchase the maps. (especially Asia and America)
But, I can't deny, your World Map (the big ones) is truly your most magnificent masterpiece, although some nations were missing. I could not stop playing for 2 days in that one single map!
That's it..... Any opinions?
