Summary: An incredible game ruined by an incredible glitch. I thought the first one I bought was just a random dud, but the second one was just as bad. All the rumors about this game are true, and if you call the 1-800 number inside the instruction booklet for technical support, no one will answer. The phone just rings and rings. This was my favorite DS game of all time, until the earth caved in and sucked my cartridge into a black hole.
Summary: Apart from the fact, that it doesn't match the PC games capabilities, it obviously went into production without proper testing. I have never owned a game before, that crashed so often. I have grown so paranoid about it, that I save virtually every second or third round. Nothing to add.
Summary: First of all, I'm about to send back to Amazon my second copy of this game. When you first get it going in the DS, it's amazing! Graphics, turn-based system, and really fun. But after you complete a mission you normally want to save your game correct?? WRONG!! If you select "Save & Quit" from the options menu it actually shuts the game down, only to never work again! Out of two games I have massed about an hour of game play!

Summary: I bought this game after reading all of the extremely positive reviews comparing AOE to Advance Wars: Dual Strike. After playing one match (and losing since I didn't read the instructions), I paused and pressed the quit option. My game immediately froze and made a humming sound. After turning it off, the game would NOT restart. After taking the game back the same night and getting a replacement, I played a 2 hour long battle.
Summary: I also bought this game and was playing fine until l tried to save and quit. The whole think corrupted - Luckily l was able to get a refund for this. If the desginers know about this fault they shouldn't be selling it. I'd be wary if you are thinking about buying this - It is easy to forget about saving first and then quitting seperatly.
Summary: Estamos ante un juego que me decepcionó muchísimo ya que soy gran fran de todos los juegos que han salido de la colección de Age of Empires. El nivel de adicción era muy bajo ya que la dificultad de uso lo hacía imposible jugar o que te tuvieras que armar de paciencia para hacer cualquier pequeña acción. Los graficos no están nada mal a pesar de que se presente en una pantalla tan pequeña, se ve todo con mas o menos claridad.
