This is the kind of graphics expected for an AoE sequel:
The colors are good, but everything(not just units) looks flat because of lack of sharpness(blurred and clean textures) and details on the textures + there seems to be a lack of shine on metallic objects.
I’m not going to bring forth unit x building scale because other forum posters already singled that out many times.
