Caution! User name must be more than 3 characters...

  • 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. This is an issue with the game developer, not the seller here. Now that we know what the problem is, my son has chosen a longer user name and is enjoying playing with no trouble.

  • Summary: I'm not a big fan of handheld systems but for the small screen it isn't too bad. Plays pretty much like any age of empires.

Age of Kings

Alec Theisen, Amazon

  • 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. Some copies were instantly bugged, others just quit over time. Keep in mind that if you pick up this great game that the chances of it crashing are high.

Pretty Good

  • 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. One thing that annoyed me a lot was the sound. Everytime you fight your enemies the war cries and so on get very annoying. I would suggest if you buy the game to not play it with the sound on.

Not bad, but not the same as the PC version

  • 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. Having said that, the graphics are good and the game play is enjoyable, just don't expect too much.

Not as good as the PC versions

  • 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. I dont think it translated over to DS as well as it could of which is a shame.

Good game - bad software glitches

J. Morris, amazon.co.uk

  • 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. Because of this it only gets 3 stars when it should be higher.

"Minor" flaw

Amazon Customer, Amazon
11 March 2007
  • Summary: I've had this game for just over a week, and have found it extremely fun to play. Unfortunately I haven't played any of the PC Age of Empire games (yet), so I can't make any first-person comparisons. Age of Empires for DS has one flaw that, if you are unaware of it beforehand, can be very annoying. For some reason, if your profile name is less than four characters (i.e. "Bob" or "San"), on starting up the game the next time you want to play, you get a blank screen.

More good than bad

  • Conclusion: I was kind of disappointed with this game as it was one of my first. It is a good strategy game, however its not in the same league as the game on the computer. It is still a alright goodish game.
