Mythologies Offers Solid Strategy On the Go

Game Informer
22 September 2009
  • Excerpt: Age of Empires smoothly transitions from a real-time strategy PC game to a turn-based tactics handheld game. Mythologies preserves the foundation of its PC forefather - players build towns, gather resources, and recruit soldiers and mythic creatures like minotaurs and sphinx to crush their enemies.

Age of Empires: Mythologies

Nintendo World Report
16 May 2009
  • Summary: A fully-equipped strategy game on the DS? Oh, yes!
  • Pros: All the micromanagement of a console or PC RTS shrunk down for the DS, An abundance of gameplay modes ensures a long lifespan, Graphics are very pretty, and some spoken dialogue adds spice, Multiplayer options are robust and appreciated
  • Cons: Dark areas of the map often box you in a bit too much, Stylus control not so good on the battlefield, Troop management becomes a bit of a chore on a big battlefield

Age of Empires: Mythologies DS (DS) - Review

VGChartz
21 April 2009
  • Excerpt: A few years ago, the standard bearing franchise in the Real-Time Strategy (RTS) genre, ‘Age of Empires’ made its first bold adventure outside of the PC redoubt with the launch of an adaptation of ‘Age of Empires: The Age of Kings’ for the DS. It was a risky decision, especially since the creators decided to boot the RTS modality that had characterized the franchise in favor of a turn-based approach.

Age of Empires: Mythologies DS Review

13 January 2009
  • Excerpt: With my thumbs and senses still numb from the recent onslaught of hyped holiday releases, I recently found myself happily engaged in an unexpected, more subdued interactive experience. Released way under the radar last month, you wouldn’t know Age of Empires: Mythologies for the Nintendo DS even existed unless you went looking for it.

Age of Empires: Mythologies Review

GameSpot
16 December 2008
  • Excerpt: Turn-based strategy gamers in need of a fix should probably drop their PCs and pick up a Nintendo DS if they haven't already. The genre is thriving on the handheld system these days, with games like Age of Empires: Mythologies and Civilization Revolution and the Advance Wars series leading the way.
  • Pros: Brilliant blend of RTS and turn-based design conventions, Outstanding strategic depth, Lengthy campaign and numerous other modes, Solid interface and presentation values
  • Cons: A little formulaic when it comes to scenario design

Age of Empires: Mythologies

Thunderbolt Games
6 December 2008
  • Excerpt: War: what’s it good for? In the realm of video games, well, war can make for hours upon endless hours of pure mindless fun. Some gamers, however, yearn for the chance to wield godly power, as they move mighty forces across the battlefields of destiny. Enter strategy gaming. Age of Empires (AoE) on PC has been one of the few real-time strategy series to successfully compete with Blizzard’s amazingly popular Warcraft saga (not to be confused with World of Warcraft).

Rise of Nations: Thrones and Patriots Review

AtomicGamer
29 July 2004
  • Excerpt: Many strategy game buffs consider last year's Rise of Nations to be the best RTS title seen in years. It deftly combines age-spanning gameplay along with elements of Civilization (and even a bit of the classic board game Risk) together, and then tops it off with a ton of options and excellent graphics.
