The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...
AOE II is a great old school game. Now that I have AOE III, I only occasionally play AOE II, but when I do, I'm hooked on it for a week.
AOE II has great graphics, great plots, and a really good range of possible units and civilizations. You can play as everybody from the Saracens to the Celts. They have Cataphracts and Woad Raiders. Trebuchets to battering rams, and champion swordsmen to paladins.
Great game, I recommend it.
