Age of Mythology is a strategy game by Ensemble Studios, the creators of the Age of Empires series. It offers a fully-3D engine with detailed visuals, such as animated water and shadows. The action takes place in ancient times, where we can find lots of elements inspired by the classic mythology. We may choose one of the nine available civilizations, including Greeks who worship Zeus, Poseidon or Hades, Egyptians divided among Ra, Seth and Isis, or the Nords who are ruled by Thor, Odin and Loki. Each of these three cultures have also three minor gods that provide unique inventions and units. The latter is especially numerous, and are accessed by skillful economy management and reaching subsequent development levels.
Due to the mythological atmosphere, we will fight Cyclopes or pray to Zeus to strike the overwhelming enemy forces with a thunder.
