Age of Mythology: The Titans demo

Expansion packs are a hard thing to decide on. This might help.

It's difficult to know when to buy an expansion pack. Even for the best games. If it's good, then you've just bought yourself more time with an old favourite, maybe reliving some of the experiences that made you go for it in the first place and even taking in a few more. On the other hand, if it's bad or just a glorified patch then you could be stuck wondering why you didn't get this in the first place, or for free. A genuine reaction to the healing properties of one recent expansion was thus: "What! I don't have to glitch my way through that mission any more and now it takes five minutes? That took me two hours to beat!"

So we'll understand if any AOM fans out there have been a bit hesitant over The Titans, an expansion pack that adds a final titanic age of ravaging, oversized beasts and an Atlantean society whose capabilities throw traditional strategies aside. You can read what Rob made of it in his review, of course, but now you can also judge for yourself thanks to a 312MB demo, comprising the first scenario from the single-player campaign and a random map called The Marsh, where you get to toy with the Atlanteans as they advance through the third age.
