Single Player?

I feel totally stupid asking this but can this game be entirely played as single player? I've downloaded the "free" game and have done a few missions. I love the game (as I do all Age of Empires related things), I just don't want to play online - at least not yet. While I do crave achievements, that is not the issue. I realize I will miss many of the online related ones.

I'd even be willing to buy a lot of the add-ons if I could keep playing.

And just to clarify why I don't like online play, it's because I am not good at it. I just like playing.

Thanks in advance

You do not have to play PvP or online co-op if you do not want to. You can play missions by yourself, but I do not know if you can play single player "skirmish" matches like old AoE games.

Thanks for the fast response! That helps. I'm hoping to find out just how much I can play alone - and what achievements can be obtained. As I said, I don't mind buying additional content and I know I won't get all the achivements (not that I ever do!)

Thanks agian

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...d.php?t=324806 this has a breakdown of the achievements so it might help you see which ones you can get by yourself.

I myself prefer to play this way and have found no problems so far except the quests start getting a little repetitive and are blending together. The defense of crete booster is especially good for single play as that is more or less all it is, and there is a ton of reply value in it. As for achievements almost all of them can be gotten in single player (assuming you pay for the civs)

Thank you Jonanian and BluWolve. I think I am convinced to get at least that first package.
