Some units look worse than the original version!

Based on my own observation and comparision, it is noticed that some units in DE look more disgraceful than the original versios.

For instance:

phalanx:


chariot:
74897-age-of-empires-the-rise-of-rome-render

calvary

I can’t agree with that, but of course it’s a subjective perception.

I totally disagree. Old units look ugly and without historical accuracy.

The best of the D.E. are the unit and building redesigns.

What is it specifically that you prefer about the original graphics? To me, the DE unit graphics are just like high definition versions of the originals - they’re all very faithful to the originals, and any design differences are very minor.

Describing either of them as “disgraceful” is pretty weird, to be honest.

Some of the old design have more cartoony and exaggerated features, like the longer hair of axeman.

But I prefer a more historical approach, like the phalanx. Anyways you can always play with old graphics mode.
