Great real-time strategy game for Nintento DS

Dino V. Saccani "hstruman", Amazon
5 May 2013
  • Summary: It's hard to find good real-time strategy games for Nintendo DS given the limited amount of capabilities of this small unit (compared to PC's and console games), but Age of Empires pulls it off! For those who love a good RTS experience and want a "lite" and mobile experience, this is for you!

Fun portable version of Age of Empires

Jay Bee, Amazon
8 February 2010
  • Summary: I really like this game. Although it had to make compromises from the real time PC version, I think it's a nice compromise. The DS version keeps a lot of the same features of the PC version - like constructing buildings (including wonders), researching technology, and massing an army of different types of soldiers. I'm running through the campaigns which are enjoyable.

A quality game that has a little pizzaz

Jonathan E Spence, Amazon
11 February 2009
  • Summary: Advance Wars has always dominated in turn based strategy and in my opinion still does and then there was fire emblem which advanced intelligent systems turn based empire even bigger but then came age of empires. Age of empires is not too far away from advance wars but it gives a average presentation. The first level has you wanting more but then again you get to pick which level to go on.

Good Game.

  • Summary: This game was everything that I had hoped for. I was worried about the "save game" problems that other reviewers had complained about. But the game includes instruction on how to get around that particular problem.

Fun but limited

Daphne "Book Reader", Amazon
9 January 2007
  • Summary: Age of Empires for Nintendo DS is fun but limited. The characters all have to be moved one at a time which gets annoying, and the battle sequences even with the animations turned off took way too long. Good over all.

Deeper than Advance Wars, but...

Elizabeth Powell, Amazon
24 September 2006
  • Summary: This is an absolutely fantastic game in many respects. It is far deeper than Advance Wars while still being accessible (and there's a perfectly constructed tutorial with its own campaign to lead you through every aspect); you need to worry about building placement, research, two different resources, units with special abilities, heroes, and a multitude of different civilizations all with unique units and heroes.

You can choose to lay either campaign, or Empire Map, Campaign is where you choose one civilisation and ...

a few flaws and change of gameplay

K. Rose, Amazon
7 November 2009
  • Summary: They really shouldn't have placed this under the "Age of empires" umbrella, aside from the scarce low-quality sounds and a few of the graphics, it is nothing like age of empires. It still however manages to be one of the leading games in the DS library. A small flaw I found is with two-player. If you're playing with a friend using two cartridges on seperate DS systems, the game will eventually freeze halfway through. It almost seems like they never even tested the game!

Age of Empires: The Age of Kings. Great turn-based battle game

tedzonk, Ciao
24 September 2009
  • Excerpt: "...and played the predecessor game Age of Empires which I thought was great, I was looking forward to playing this one. Although it seems to have the same game engine, I was slightly disappointed as the maps appear to be much smaller and restricted. The first 2 King / level scenarios were much much too easy and it is not until the final King that you need to start thinking and employing tactics. The game is still enjoyable for those fans of turn-based ...
  • Pros: great gameplay .
  • Cons: restricted maps .  initial levels too easy .
