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.
