    Hey I'm thinking of buying a game and I'm looking for a game thats kinda like Warcraft (which i already have) but leaning more on the side of Age of Empires.

    Firefly Studio's Stonghold caught my eye, and as well as Baldar's Gate II?

    Which one would be more suited for me if I wanted a game more like AOE?

    Baldur's Gate II isn't a strategy game. It's an RPG using a hybrid of the AD&D 2nd and 3rd edition rules.

    stronghold is cool

    In stronghold you can either play the campaign mode, in which you have to build a castle and troops and hold off attackers. Or you can play that you are the attacker, trying to breach the defenses of the castle. Its pretty cool, the only problem i have found is that the AI is pretty stupid. It is entertaining, and a lot like warcraft
