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!
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...
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.
Summary: I enjoyed this game almost as much as the pc version, even though the graphics were not as good, because it was portable. I purchased my copy used. An earlier reviewer mentioned that there were known problems with a three letter character name, I had used a three letter name.
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.
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.

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,...
Excerpt: After playing another version of Age Of Empires on PC, I was looking forward to playing this as soon as I bought it. Age Of Empires: The Age Of Kings is a game where you can control one of 5 civilisations, each one with an iconic war figure as their 'Hero' -these are the best warriors, these heroes...
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.
