Nope. It's s***y af even for a standard back then, you better jump to the second one mate. There's a reason only the second got HD treatment.

There is going to be a new version of the original AoE released in October:-

Age of Empires: Definitive Edition

The release date for Age of Empires: Definitive Edition has been set for 19th October. This release commemorates the 20th anniversary of the original game. Microsoft promises to keep many aspects of the game and its gameplay mechanics the same to preserve its feel but also promises "a ton of awesome new features," as below:

All-new 4K graphics
Re-orchestrated soundtrack
New zoom levels
Attack Move, Unit queuing
250-300 population cap
Rally Points Basic, Rally Points Contextual (Intelligent Villagers)
Grid default key layout
Select Idle Military, Select Idle Villagers
Right-click mouse scroll


In the wake of the above announcement it was confirmed that Definitive Editions of both Age of Empires II and III are in the works.

I don't know what hardy is smoking. The first AoE is awesome. I played it again a few years ago. Still worth it. The AI kind of sucks, but it's just a fun and relaxing game.

It's not as good as its sequel but it's not a bad game itself, especially with the Rise of Rome expansion. Some of the missions are hard as hell, and you may not get used to the absence of unique units other refinements introduced by AOE2.
