I enjoyed AoW3. It's very abusable once you figure out the mechanics but a fun game.
i take it it's like a CIV 4x type game?
Yeah, high fantasy CIV 4x with race style factions and the combat is like a min-RTS.
Lots of fun until you get to the point where you can curb stomp everything and the RTS parts become a drag. If remember right when you auto-complete the battles all it takes into account are the forces present and none of the fun battle winning stuff you can do with them. Like if you are sieging a city with walls and you have a character with wall climbing but don't have siege equipment you'll lose your army on an auto calc since it dosen't under stand your guys can just climb up the walls.
It's been a long time since I've played though.
