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: 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.
Summary: I love to play the age of empire games on the computer so i was really excited when i got age of empires age of th kings on ds. Sadly it is nothing like the age of empires for the computer. The game itself is...ok, as long as you dont expect it to be like the computer verisons. The graphics of the game where bad and in the begining the game was very compilcated and annoying. But once you learn how to play it could be fun i guess.
Summary: First of all, let me say that the PC version is amazing. Since it was so good on the PC I just had to get this version. But, this game has only 5 civlizations, is very slow going and it plays in turns! It does however have good picture and has cartoon battle scenes and works well. But, it takes so long to play the game that its not really fun.
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.
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. dont base this game on past AOE games as it is a whole different ball-game. Battle scenes are pretty neat if not a bit confusing. try this game before you buy it! im glad i only paid what i did for it.
Summary: I will keep this short as many of the other reviewers have said most of what I feel regarding the game's high level of entertainment. I want to make sure people are aware of the bugginess of this game, however; I already had one mission that did not complete due to goals not being checked as met. I have also had it happen that after a monk picked up a relic, along his way back to town, somehow the relic was lost on the map.
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. However if you like games like chess, checkers, and such games only computerized this game is for you.
Summary: I'm echoing an earlier review, there is some problem w/ this game upon saving it. We are on our 2nd game which has now gone black after saving it and there's NO REVIVING it we can find - just a black screen so gotta do a 3rd now. Be warned, there is SOME LOW LEVEL PROBLEM w/ this game and the DS or it's a manufacturing defect that's more than just an isolated incident - be aware.
