Expansion packs are notorious for providing minimal additional content at a premium price. Age of
Mythology: The Titans is a glorious exception. There’s plenty of new content — a whole new single-player campaign, a new civilization (The Atlanteans) and adjusted gameplay for the original three civilizations. Starcraft, AoM’s three-civilization-predecessor, never attempted to add a fourth regime, with good reason:
