Great real-time strategy game for Nintento DS

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 types of soldiers. I'm running through the campaigns which are enjoyable.
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.
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.
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.
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 include Genghis Khan and Richard the Lion heart. You can choose to lay either campaign, or Empire Map, Campaign is where you choose one civilisation and ...
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
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 ...
