Via PC Gamer, AoE 2 is coming to Steam in a "new" HD version...

http://www.pcgamer.com/2013/03/07/age-of-empires-2-hd-to-launch-with-improved-visuals-steam-workshop-on-april-9/

Here’s an example of the original game, running at the native 800×600 resolution:


And here is Age 2 HD, cruising along at a respectable 1920×1080:


I hardly looks stunning in its higher resolutions, but worth grabbing once it is on offer on Steam. It is showing as $17.99 for me at work because apparently our new servers must be configured to report I am from America, so not sure what that is going to be in GBP - probably £14.99.

I did try that new campaign you posted a few weeks ago, but it is still way behind where AoE 3 got to. Both in terms of gameplay and visuals, once you've played AoE 3, then going back to AoE 2 isn't pleasant. Plus, my hero chap went missing - couldn't complete the mission }Sad

That's rubbish, AoE2 is where it's at.

AoE3 ruined it!
