    I like the new perspective, I am currently playing II again at the moment, it's got good replayability if you go back to it every so often.

    It’s weird, I see progress in some things like the gameplay, but the graphics, the UI and the animations are horrible (especially the arrows). It looks like a mobile game or if it were still 2011. Not to mention the ugly framedrops (e.g. gameplay video 5:25), if I were in their place I would rather not show those scenes in this state.

    Its a Beta, its demonstrating factions and gameplay not graphics and there is nothing to confirm this is a PC version being shown.

    Oh yes, it's beta - final release will be totally different.
    Just like with Cyberpunk

    Microsoft is a giant, CDPR is an ant.

    Cyberpunk was weak, AOE series 'delivered already' for the three first remakes. Only a new AOE IV remains.

    Comparison is at least irrelevant here.

    I like the art and colours, the animations not so much. I hope they do a good job and release only when ready!

    I think it looks too cartoony. Should be more like Total War.

    They weren't showing much to being with.

    It's wishful fanboy thinking that I'm pointing out - not the game differences.

    Won't play either of those regardless.

    True dont get me wrong big fan of the series here. Was kinda expecting something could change this time. Im probably still gonna play the game.

    Understandable, especially after the artistic differences in Star Craft

    I'm sorry but graphics look really like 2008 or something , i know it's alpha , but whole engine doesn't look anything close to 2020 ..... I really cheer for this game but it does look damn bad right now (more like mobile game).

    Looks like the game was either made in 2007 or for mobile. I just don't understand the ones who give the graphics praise.
