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

  • 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.

  • 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.

Age of Empires - Mythologies

GameRadio.de
11 February 2009
  • Summary: Als jemand, der gerne Strategiespiele spielt, bin ich mit großer Vorfreude an "Age of Empires: Mythologies" rangegangen und ich wurde nicht enttäuscht. Der Schwierigkeitsgrad nimmt stetig, aber fair zu, während die Kampagnen und Szenarios sehr gut unterhalten. Das Spielen gegen Freunde oder eine Runde im Scharmützel runden das Gesamtpaket angenehm ab. "Mythologies" gehört also definitiv zu den Dauerbrennern, die man auf längeren Reisen immer dabei haben sollte.
  • Pros: fairer Schwierigkeitsgrad, tolle Präsentation, gelungener Multiplayer
  • Cons: anfangs nur möglich, die ägyptische Kampagne zu spielen, der Verlauf einer Schlacht kann etwas langatmig werden

Test: Age of Empires: Mythologies

nintendo front
18 December 2008
  • Conclusion: Es ist zum Heulen, dass es alte Serienschwächen der PC-Version auch wieder auf den Handheld geschafft haben. Besonders ärgerlich sind hier der unausgewogene Schwierigkeitsgrad und die cheatende KI. Die teilweise unübersichtlichen Schlachtfelder helfen mir beim Kampf gegen den Feind genauso wenig wie die krampfhafte Stylus-Steuerung.
  • Pros: Tiefgründiges Spielerlebnis, Power Ups, Helden, Kreaturen..., solide Optik, Funktionierendes Rundenstrategieerlebnis
  • Cons: Verkorkste Stylus-Steuerung, Balancing-Probleme, Teilweise unübersichtlich, Banale Story
