Age of Mythology: The Titans is an expansion pack for Ensemble Studio's Age of Mythology real-time strategy game. A fourth culture, the Atlanteans, with three new gods — Gaia, Cronos, and Oranos — is available, and the existing cultures have been modified with new god powers, human units, and mythological units. As the title suggests, however, the fearsome Titans are available as well. Players must build a pricey underworld portal — much like the expensive wonders — to summon the 7000-hit-point monstrosities.
The Atlantean civilization offers some gameplay twists; players will be 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. As Gaia, players can utilize an undergrowth that grows around all of Gaia's buildings, granting them defensive advantages. Kronos allows users to move buildings anywhere on the map, at minimal cost. Oranos gives his vassals sky passages, which can be constructed all over the map, allowing players to rapidly deploy their armies in far-flung locations. All Atlantean villagers have mules, allowing them to work much more efficiently, but they also cost considerably more.
New maps, a new campaign, and an additional multiplayer mode are also included. Players can participate in multiplayer games through Ensemble's included matchmaking service, accessible from Age of Mythology's main menu screen. ~ Mark Hoogland, All Game Guide
