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

AtomicGamer
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.

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.

Review: Age of Empires: Mythologies

N-Europe
3 March 2009
  • Conclusion: A thoroughly decent strategy affair, and a fine diluting of a PC classic. If you're a series fan and missed out on Age of Kings , then Mythologies is a worthy addition to your collection.
  • Pros: Great variety of units and generally lots to do, Economy system works well, Mythological elements add a nice spin, Classic Age of Empires feel
  • Cons: Fiddly control interface, Lacking polish, There are simply better strategy games on DS
