Ahead of its release, we thought it best to compile a list of review scores to help you judge whether the game should be your next big buy (or Game Pass download)!

Age of Empires 4 is the latest release in the much beloved historical RTS series, published by Microsoft Studios and heading to PC October 28. Age of Empires 4 puts you in the commanding role of numerous civilisations present during the middle ages as you play out large battles, rule over your kingdom, and conquer.
