    I thought they were...they were all pretty self explanatory, what with "hyperlinks" and all sorts of interfacing going on around your ass.

    The only problem with this game is that they may give you too much information. This game was very thoroughly thought through, I believe.

    Brian Reynolds is a cool guy. When I was a kid I found out his MSN AoE II handle and weaseled my way into playing a few games with him and what not, the obligatory kid questions "Your game is awesome, are you proud of it?".

    Very polite. Very kick ass with an army of macemen.
