Is there anyone in the world that doesn't think that game is the best thing since sliced cats?
I don't like AoE(2). Because i played Stronghold first.
These are different types of games. I love both of them. Stronghold, because it's good castle sim with huge battles, and AoE because of it's diversity in units, civilizations and micromanagement.
I'm not the best with micro in such games, but I enjoyed AoE2, played lots of hours with my friend.
So we did with Stronghold :)
