MoM comes as close to being the perfect game as any.

The thing is the enormous content and most of it rather well balanced.

Hundreds of viable Wizards to create combined with over a dozen races =replayability unmatched.

I want a 1:1 remake, change *nothing* except remove the few bugs, make the unit graphics in tactical combat less blurred and let the AI expand faster. It should conquer neutral cities aggressively in the early game so as to stay competitive. Or else give neutrals a stronger garrison. That´s all.

How bout an updated remake of.... All older Matrix / Slitherine games that sound really cool but don't work well with modern systems .... Horse and Musket Vol I, Warplan Orange etc ....

Or cases of Abandonware like Time of Fury ..

Are you talking about working with Windows 10? They all work for Windows 7 (according to the store page)...

Like the idea of an updated Bismark, while your at it a new Iron Bottom sound & Jutland would be ok too. Along with AH Longest Day!

Now, I do like the combat tactical portion of AOW III (except for sieges) but, that is really about all. I would have liked more races like AOW I had, up to 15 I believe. AOW III allows you only to play with SIX. They just keep taking away it would seem.

Hey hey HEY! AoW3 added character classes. Those add variety to any given race. I haven't played earlier games in the series, so I can't say would classes make as significant differences to elf race as those between wood elf and dark elf. But it adds something instead takes away.

I'm talking about doing a refresh on games that were originally designed for 1024 x 768 etc - and bringing them up to

today's standards. For the customer then : No twinking around with compatibility, Direct x versions, using Windowed mode, dealing with stretched

graphics.


Not all games (and associated potential revenue) would justify a complete over-haul I realize - but I think it would be reasonable

to do what Beamdog did with Baldur's Gate II. (ignore recent patch changes) where the characters are a bit pixelated

but overall the product looks good, plays in 1920 x 1080 and needs no real major tweaking in order to enjoy the game.

Yes, all of those classics would be welcome!

AOW I let you PICK the personalities of the AI races or let the computer randomize them. I'd rather have that than scripted AI races in AOW III. AOWIII took away more than it added imo.
