  • 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.

  • Excerpt: If Age Of Empires on the PC is the Star Wars saga, Age Of Empires on the DS is the animated Clone Wars spin-off. It's still Star Wars, but in bite-size chunks and with its own stylised design.

  • Excerpt: Purists of the original PC version will lament the lack of free-flowing manoeuvres, however at its heart the game is Age of Empires - albeit a cut-down version. It still retains the challenges and the rich historical backdrop of the original, and fans will enjoy the familiarity and the new...
  • Pros: A very challenging strategy game that builds on the original framework of the PC version.
  • Cons: Controlling and moving your units can be problematic, and they are often obscured by other units.

  • Conclusion: You've probably noticed that I've studiously avoided mentioning Advance Wars so far. As the only other strategy game of note on the DS, it's obviously tempting to pit the two against each other, point for point, but there's no reason why strategy fans shouldn't enjoy both.

  • Summary: Vroegah hadden ze nog geen tanks, maar verplaatste men zich te paard. Vroegah hadden ze nog geen machinegeweren, maar vocht men met een zwaard. Vroegah was Age of Empires alleen te verkrijgen voor de PC en niet voor de DS. Gelukkig is dat nu wel zo.
  • Pros: Redelijk verslavend, Behoorlijk uitdagende campaign, Turn based werkt prima, Vrij uitgebreid
  • Cons: Onoverzichtelijk, Twee cards nodig voor multiplayer, Lage replay waarde
