Rise of Nations features complex gameplay mechanics, which require the player to consider every move carefully or face its consequence. Combined with extensive building systems, this makes RoN a title that all fans of RTS city-builders should try.

A spinoff to the Age of Empires series, Age of Mythology takes the player to the ancient times, where people believed that their fates were governed by the will of almighty gods. While most of the gameplay mechanics remain the same, the presence of gods and their influence on the world of the game is what makes Age of Mythology so different than other games in the “Age of…” series.
Each civilization chooses one major god to aid them – including Zeus, Ra, Odin, etc. As the player progresses, minor gods who provide additional support in various gameplay aspects are unlocked. If you don’t mind a bit of fantasy in your real-time strategy games, then we can wholeheartedly recommend you play Age of Mythology.
