2014 and It's Still Great

Summary: This game was made 8 years ago and it's still better than most current gen games. Strategy, RTS or tactical/turn based is a genre that is neglected. Don't be fooled by the low score. This game has a bug that can run the cartridge if you save and quit. So, i just don't use that feature. The gameplay is sort of like a cross between advance wars and the other age games.
Summary: Gameplay is fun and engrossing. It is easy to lose track of time while playing this game. If you have played this style of game before and liked it, you will like this one. That said, it does have some glitches. The most important one to fix is your username. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE AT LEAST 4 CHARACTERS IN YOUR USERNAME! If you do this, most of the problems will be fixed. This game, like most others of the same type, has EXCELLENT replay value.
Summary: This game is very fun and it is challenging. If you liked the Age of Empires on the PC then you will love this game. One thing is that it doesn't have a lot of different empires to choose from. Another is, unlike the PC version, your infantry can only take a certain amount of steps per "day". The maps could be bigger but over all there are a decent amount of different maps (some you have to buy some maps using bonus points).
Summary: This is a great game, I would not call it a port of the PC Game though. The interface is different but still an outstanding game. The campaigns are incredibly difficult but the empire maps are really enjoyable. Unlike the PC version were the random maps (equivalent to the empire maps on the DS version) can be finished in 20 minutes you can play an empire map for days training units, building, and fighting.
Summary: Its the game for the stratergy game lovers. I do my gym workout (cardio activities) while playing this game. I get distracted by this game and this help me to do 2 hours of workout with out any mental stain
Summary: When AoE came out for the DS, it was the best strategy game on the system, bar none. It's been eclipsed by Civ:Rev, but it's still a strong 2nd on the DS. If it weren't for the small screen and difficulty in recognizing units, this game would score almost perfect. Can't wait for sequel that they're working on. Hope the sequel has Wifi support also, and user created maps.
