Review – Age of Empires: Age of Kings (and Crashing)

videolamer
21 February 2008
  • Conclusion: On the whole, if you are a strategy player and aware of the many ways the game can crash, this is a great pickup for the DS. If you have friends for multiplayer, you’ll get that much more fun out of the game. It’s flawed, certainly, and I wouldn’t disagree with anyone who shunned it for that fact: a console game should not crash as much as this game does. I’m almost certainly influenced by the fact I borrowed, and did not buy the game.

Age of Empires: The Age of Kings (DS)

The Review Busters
2 March 2007
  • Conclusion: Age of Empires: The Age of Kings delivers a good, quality RTS game for the Nintendo DS. It might not have everything the PC version does but it have the majority of units, buildings and it even lets you do some upgrading. At times the game doesn't feel right, you can't produce nearly as many units as the computer, but you can easily defeat the enemy if you play with some sense of strategy.

  • Excerpt: Genghis Khan is on a roll. With villagers bringing in a plentiful supply of gold from the mines and wheat from the farms, his populace is flourishing and victory is nearly assured in the ongoing battles to the north. Now the warlord can look forward to a quiet evening in with a small selection of his favourite concubines. But what's this? There's been an uprising to the south and the enemies are massing on the border. How will Genghis cope?

  • Excerpt: Longbowmen ready for action. If you’re a PC gamer, especially a PC strategy gamer, then the name Age of Empires is certainly familiar to you. The Age of Empires games are one of the premiere series of real-time strategy games on the PC. Now Age of Empires has gone mobile, shrunk down to fit the Nintendo DS.

  • Excerpt: Age of Empires: The Age of Kings may share a name with the PC series, but the portable version has been completely redesigned to appeal to portable audiences as well as take advantage of the system’s capabilities. The translation isn’t without problems, but the overall experience remains true to the series. Presentation is generally strong, though it also proves to be one of the game’s few shortcomings.

Age of Empires: The Age of Kings

Game Over Online
1 May 2006
  • Excerpt: This review took me longer to write than I really wanted. I'm a big strategy fan, particularly of the Age of Empires series, so I was looking forward to Age of Empires: The Age of Kings. Initially, I was interested in how the game made the switch from RTS to turn-based, Advance Wars-style. It seemed like a natural fit and particularly suited to the Nintendo DS's design. One problem: Age of Empire: The Age of Kings is extraordinarily buggy, ugly, and really not very good.
