Age of Empires on the DS had a lot to live up to as I have played these games on the PC and usd to be addicted to them so was hoping that the DS version of the game would be the same and easier to take around to play with me. The game itself lets you command one civilisation and you can choose between the Britons, the Franks, the Mongols, the Saraceans or the Japenese. Like the PC version of the game you "create" you own civilisations and upgrade the buildings to be able to advance your civilisation. Like the PC version you can explore different lands and learn new skills and technologies to be able to advance to the next level or in this ... Read the complete review

I first tried Age of Empires on the PC and was put off because it I found the whole game running away from me at an early stage without having enough time to think. However, the DS version is turn-based, making it a much more attractive option for slowsters like me! As strategy games go, it is a very good one. You can play individual battles, or go for one of five campaigns of increasing difficulty. The ampaigns are based on historical events and figures (and you can rewrite history by reversing the real fortunes of war), each with their own hero. The Franks have Joan of Arc, the Britons have Richard the Lionheart, Saladin fights with the Saracens etc. ... Read the complete review

Age of Kings is a very addictive strategy game that doesn't overdo the gameplay in terms of complexity. Still whether you find it enjoyable will depend entirely on how well you like strategy games. The game is split into five different scenarios that get progressively harder. In each you play as a famous leader from history (eg Joan of Arc is the first one). You then play through various missions which basically comprise of a grid like map. You can build cities which in turn can be various units (normally battle units) in order to wage war, or defend your city. The game doesn't reinvent the wheel in this sense, and there are perhaps similarities ... Read the complete review

Age of Empires II is, in my opinion, the best strategy game out there for the DS. I love Age of Empires II for the PC (III is just awful) and so I knew this game was a must-have for my DS. Whilst it's quite different to the PC version, I quickly got used to it and find it just as addicting as the PC game. It's definetly one of my favourite DS games out there. On this DS version of the game there are the usual campaigns which you find on the PC game allowing you to play as Joan of Arc and guiding her through the various missions. There are a total of 5 campaigns and they aren't very short so you'll have hours of enjoyment there. Or if you're not a fan ... Read the complete review

Age of Empires is a strategic game and the age of kings is probably one of the best versions out of the age of empires series. The age of kings allows you to create a castle where the king is based. If you kill the opposition's king, you win the game. The options of the game are many, such as deathmatch mode as well as online play. As for graphics, they can be adjusted (on PC) but they are very good. There are options to make movement of a larger army quicker by selecting all the soldiers and moving them to a certain point. Another good aspect is the music, it is very olden styled which matches the king like environment. You can also select from a number of countries to . Read the complete review
