    Default Looking for a fun game similar to age of empires II

    Hey everyone... I'm not such a computer gamer but I just got a new laptop and want to find a fun game to play on it... its a Inspiron 1420 and I'll list the specs in a second... in general I want a fun strategy game where you develop a lot and eventually go to battle... I saw "Game of the Year" Civilization at Best Buy and thought it might be cool... any suggestions or opinions?

    Intel Core 2 Duo T7300 - 2.0 Ghz 800 FSB and 4 mb cache
    2.00 GB of ram
    NVIDIA GeForce 8400 M GS
    14.1 inch screen
    Vista

    is anything else relevant?

    How about Warcraft 3 and Starcraft? They're old games, but lots and still my favorite RTS's.

    what do you guys think about Medieval II Total War...

    is it a good game?

    would it run fine on my system (no lags)?

    Medieval Total War 2 is really a good game. Just look at the different ratings everywhere. Its a mix of real-time strategy (the battles) and turn-based strategy (the empire's management part).

    It should run quite well, but not on max (I can't even run it on max)

    I think Age of Empires III is a great game. Yes, AOE is an RTS. There's a new expansion for AOE III arriving this fall adding Asian civilizations.

    Command & Conquer 3 is a great RTS as well. Starcraft II looks very promising.

    M2 is the best thing to turn up on my comp.

    would run fine on medium settings.
    I like summer. I sit back, relax take the phone off the hook and enjoy a nice cold beer. Then when i get home from work I also enjoy a dip in the pool.


    If what i just said doesn't make sense to you it is either a typo or aussie slang.......if you want to look up aussie slang, click here
