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: 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: Like most of the other reviewers I rated this game one of the best if you like strategy and building an empire. It is not for the fast paced crowd. You have to build cities, explore the map, fight other armies. Not much new if you have played Role Playing Games before but they don't come much better than this game even on the DS. One word of warning, you must not have a 3 character name on your DS.
Fantastically Fun - Just Check your Profile Name First

Summary: Age of Empires - Age of Kings for the Nintendo DS is not just a straight port of the fun real time strategy game. Instead, it's a turn based version based on the same missions. Let me first say that several people have had issues of this gaming locking up on their DS. I haven't had this problem at all with mine. The creators of Age of Empires - Age of Kings say that this is a known problem if your profile name (i.e your DS name) is only 3 or less characters long.
Summary: I have not been dissapointed by this game. It has great replay value as well as lots of units and buildings. I would say this game is a cross between Zoo Tycoon and Advance Wars. I have really enjoyed this game. I believe it is definitely worth the thirty bucks I paid to get it. I have only had it lock up once or twice but it really does not effect me(I save at the end of each turn). I think the ingame library and store are also great assets to this game.
Great portable version of one of the best games ever

Summary: At first I didnt know what to expect but as soon as opened the box and played the tutorial things started to make sense. It took me a few times to fully understand the pace and features of the game but once you get it you can get hooked and not stop for hours. The game may seem harder at the beggining but as you evolve in the knowledge of different civilizations and their paces the game comes together ver nicely.
Summary: From the Majesco support forums: The save/quit issue seems to be caused by having an empire name of 2 or 3 letters in length. To Avoid the loss of data and the Black screen issue our current suggestion is to edit your user profile. Make sure the profile is more than 3 characters long (That's 4 or more letters or symbols) This work around should prevent any data loss while playing age of kings.
