Gameplay & Graphics and Music
Like many of strategy video games , Age of Mythology is about building towns and training your soldiers , but AoM has another feature too named Power of God , after upgrading each level , you will have a new Power of God , each Power of God can directly change result of the battles.
There are four major resources in the Age of Mythology : food , wood , gold , and favor.
The game doesn't have very good graphics but in the strategy video games , graphics is not really important so we can just ignore it.
The official soundtrack was released on October 22 , 2002. Starting music of the game is very epic and exciting but in throughout the story there isn't so much good sounds but still acceptable.
In the end , if you like strategy video games for fighting , building , managing your troops and creating your unique town ; you can play the Age of Mythology game and enjoy from it …
