I am planning on making a game like age of empires or cossacks. I am using c++ and SDL. I want the game to look half decent and I think AOE 3 used 2d sprites and 3d levels if im not mistaken (please correct me on that) and I haven't a clue about making a simple 3d platform. But I want to do which evers looks best. thanks for looking UF

Well-made 2D will always triumph over shoddy 3D stuff.

The first two installments in the Age of Empires series were full 2D, and they were pretty good (graphically), IMO. I'd say stick to 2D if you want it to look good, unless you already have a firm grasp on 3D stuff, as well as a means to generate nice 3D assets.
