I've bought every game in the series for 50 bucks when they first came out (except for Warcraft 1, I doubt a 6 year old kid can walk into a store and buy that :P).

I'm a big fanzor, WC2 is still the best in the whole series.
Always loved its smaller, smarter battles.

WC3 had nice story and offered nice gameplay. But IMHO it is short.

@ velik_m - AOE offered some stuff that Warcraft 2 did not have, and improved animation, different kind of story with ability to replay same missions. Both games have their ups and downs.

@ gregor - never heard of remake of WC2. Are you sure you did not mean Total Annihilation? There is a remake of that game, which is converted into 3D world.
well i don't know. i have to look it up and see if i can come up with the remake...

and in my opinion all these games are not that much different.
let's say war 2 and AOE 2

1. they both have farms (sure Aoe has better graphics and farm funcions more specified - food separated from housing). more farms = more units
2. they both have town halls where you create peasants
3. they both have baracs, sort of lumbermill and smth. to create siege units and soemthing to create horse riding units (AOE can stock their production in lines).
4. they both have similar warships, but instead of drilling for oil AOE has fishing ships
5. they can both group units but neither can make companies (warcraft can only group 9 units and AOE has formations which dont' work too good)
6. they both have trees that need to be cut down (although there are much more of them in AOE 2)
7. they both have godl mines that need to be mined to produce the units
8. the both have some form of magic (war2= magician, AOE 2 = priest). AOE 2 has less powerfull spells.
9. they both have similar tactics in battle. you can do either a lot of damage if you can control your units and just prevent them from going berserk and scater arround you only need 2 siege units and a group to protect them.
...

I know there are also some differences but basically gameplay is same.
Differences:
1. story
2. AOE has hills
3. AOE has strong castles
4. AOE has stones to be mines
5. AOE has trading
6. Units in AOE dont' have magic to be used (except for the priest)
7. "Magic" in AOE is more "down to earth"
8. Better graphics in AOE
9 Aoe is from Microsoft

...

I totally love Warcraft 3 and Frozen Throne. The graphics and story grabbed me.

War 2 online = worse hacking than Open Battle.net on Diablo 2, and that's saying ALOT.

That's why I rarely play online strategy games.

Once I installed Total Anihillation multiplayer, and then after long updates, finally I was able to connect to net. First battle against some guy with agreement not to attack for 20 minutes. And then he came with huge army (I mean HUGE) in 10 minutes. :blink:

Warcraft 3 had best video sequence IMHO.

@ gregor Warcraft 2 and AOE 2 are from two different times. More correct would be to compare AOE 2/3 with Warcraft 3. IMHO Blizzard games are superior to M$ games.

I'd agree.
There's rarely a lack of balancing issues in Microfeces' games, Age III for example had a massively unbalanced Russian/German civ.

Never really have to worry about that in Bliz, the best things about their games is that they get them perfect from the start and better with the patches.

Sadly, playing older games, oftentimes you will run into MANY people hacking the game. Tis sad, really.

Yar.
Somehow Starcraft avoided it.

You hardly ever meet hackers on there.
