The "Gold" edition of Ensemble Studios myth-based, real-time strategy game includes the original Age of Mythology and its expansion pack, Age of Mythology: The Titans.
Three of the world's most celebrated ancient mythologies come alive for real-time warfare in Age of Mythology. Players choose to lead the Egyptians, the Greeks, or the Norse, each quite different in terms of available units, special powers, and methods of resource collection. The Greeks offer a balance of good offensive and defensive capabilities. The Norse are aggressive, driven by conquest and expansion. Sturdy and resilient, the Egyptians defend themselves well and are difficult to overcome.
With Age of Mythology: The Titans, a fourth culture — the Atlanteans — becomes available, and the original three cultures are modified with new god powers, human units, and mythological units. The Atlantean civilization offers some gameplay twists; players are able to use god powers multiple times, as opposed to the one-time powers of the Greeks, Norse, and Egyptians. All Atlantean human units can be converted to heroes, for a price, which can be invaluable in beating back attacks from mythological units. ~ All Game Guide
