Imagine the sound of a long, tired, yet slightly frustrated exhale of breath. That's the sound I make when I think of Age of Empires: Castle Siege, a game that I have previewed for you in the video above.

Currently in soft-launch, the game isn't bad per se, it's just shaping up to be very average, and quite slow, and in the strategy management genre, that might just be a death sentence.

But you can unlock Xbox Live Achievements, so I guess that's cool.

Age of Empires: Castle Siege is on Windows Phone now, and is coming to iOS shortly.
