  • 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: 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.

  • 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.

Age of Empires: The Age of Kings review

Gameplanet
12 April 2007
  • 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 challenges.
  • 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.
