Summary: ...or the whole game freezes up and cannot be used. We found this out the hard way, actually had to go online and read about this after my son had theis happen with 2 other cartridges of this exact game. Pity, too, because he LOVED this game when he played it.
Summary: While this game is really good, ships about average, maybe 9 or 10 days to my home, and arrives in excelent condition, this game is a bug fest. I have owned around 8 copies of this game over the years and they all wound up being unplayable due to bug glitches.
Summary: As you can expect, Age of Empires is a far better game at home on your PC. Although this game was a good attempt at a portable game, I would rate it about 6/10. The controls are very hard to get used to, but they are not complicated. The graphics are pretty good as well.
Summary: Being a massive, huge fan of the PC version I was a little disappointed with the Nintendo DS version. Possibly I was expecting too much from a hand held game, but the game play doesn't really bare much resemblance to the PC game.
Summary: i didnt think this was very much fun from the start. there was no tutorial and the in game menus are sometimes a mystery. This game is slow even for a turn-based game. controls are spotty and counterintuitive, it just wasnt very engaging for me.
Summary: When I first heard that Age of Empires was coming out for Nintendo DS I was quite excited as I had played AOE 1 and 2 frequently on the computer. I bought the game and at once was pretty dissapointed. If you compare it to AOE for computer, its boring because its a turn based game.
Overall an OK game but if your used to the PC game maybe not for you

Excerpt: Age of Empires on the DS had a lot to live up to as I have played these games on the PC and usd to be addicted to them so was hoping that the DS version of the game would be the same and easier to take around to play with me.
Summary: A great strategy game which will occupy you for weeks, however if the game has gone on for a while, it tends to freeze after you try and save it with a message, "cannot write/save to card". You can't get back to the game after this so your last playing session will be lost.
Summary: I bought this in high hope it would be as good as the PC versions of the game. Of course it couldnt be the same because of the different format but i was disappointed that it didnt live up to my expectations. I found the graphics werent great and the gameplay didnt hold my interest.
