Games similar to Age of Empires

I really enjoyed Age of Empires II and want to play some other games that are similar. AOE3 didn't feel like the same game and definitely was not as good as AOE II. What are some other games that have the same kind of top down perspective where you control soldiers and build a settlement etc.

Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War

Dawn of War is by far the best RTS I have ever played. Its Warhammer 40k so it's going to be guns and machines etc, but the first game was amazing. Lots of expansions adding new armies so there is a lot to enjoy if you go back to this game. I wouldn't suggest playing the newer ones over the original.

The Settlers III

I sunk a lot of hours into Settlers 3 when I first got a PC. There are a good few entries in the settlers series. Heritage of the Kings was also a good entry, but there is something about settlers 3 that I liked the most. There was also a 10th anniversary remake of the first which is also a brilliant game. Settlers is definitely a game to play if you are looking something similar to Age of Empires.

Warcraft III: Reign of Chaos

Warcraft 3 is still being played and is a classic RTS. It's more mythological than AOE but it is a fantastic game all the same. The story is enjoyable and I'm sure there are still some multiplayer servers running for it.

Company of Heroes

Company of heroes was created by the same developer as Dawn of War. It's a WWII setting and a fairly solid RTS.

Empire Earth II

Empire Earth is an old franchise that is a lot like Age of Empires. There are 3 games, but the third wasnt very well recieved. Id say the collection can be bought for very cheap on Steam so it probably doesnt matter.
