Good game, Excelent replay value
30 June 2011
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: 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.
Summary: This game was well-done, and a great value for the price. If you like strategy games, esp. turn-based, this is as good any decent PC t-b strat game for the PC from the 90's. I actually never played AoE for PC, but think I will go ahead and pick up a bargain bin one and give it a whirl. This game actually reminded me a little bit of early HOMM titles (DS versions, please!), but with more freedom to move around.
Summary: This is one of 3 games I received with my DS for Christmas, and I was hooked right out of the gate. I am a veteran of PC-based RTS games, including the original Age of Empires all the way up to AoE3, as well as other publishers like Warcraft, Starcraft, C&C, etc. The one thing I really liked about this version is the change to turn-based rather than real-time.
Great Game for Business Trips or Family Gatherings

Summary: This was the first game I bought for my Nintendo DS Lite. The graphics are pretty good. They don't compare to the PC version, but overall game play is very enjoyable. I've almost finished the game, after probably 50 hours of play.
Summary: I'll keep this very brief: If you like strategy games, you will absolutely love this portable version of what I understand is a PC classic. Yes, you should also own Advance Wars DS, but this is frankly a much better value at less than half the price. Plus, there are cool (also brief) history lessons told through well illustrated cut scenes. Anyway, tons of gameplay and enjoyment that'll make long car or train rides fly by. If you like strategy games, that is.
