Age of Empires: Mythologies (DS)

 

Turn-based strategy gamers in need of a fix should probably drop their PCs and pick up a Nintendo DS if they haven't already. The genre is thriving on the handheld system these days, with games like Age of Empires: Mythologies and Civilization...

Depth of gameplay ; Ample content ; Multi-player

Expert review by:

Age of Empires: Mythologies

 

A fully-equipped strategy game on the DS? Oh, yes!

An abundance of gameplay modes ensures a long lifespan ; All the micromanagement of a console or PC RTS shrunk down for the DS ; Graphics are very pretty, and some spoken dialogue adds spice ; Multiplayer options are robust and appreciated

Stylus control not so good on the battlefield ; Dark areas of the map often box you in a bit too much ; Troop management becomes a bit of a chore on a big battlefield

I was really surprised by how much content Age of Empires: Mythologies contains, and the game itself is fun and inventive. Even the multiplayer options have more legs than most other DS games. Strategy fan or not, this is one DS game everyone should try.

AOE Mythologies is enjoyable and challenging

This is a great strategy game for the DS, and one that strategy fans won't want to miss. It's fun to play, pretty to see and nice to hear. All the different modes add a good bit of content. The single-player campaign could be longer, but overall this...

Much as the DS' original Age of Empires was so improbably successful of capturing the desktop Age of Kings' real-time strategy experience in a turn-based handheld game, Age of Empires: Mythologies aims to deliver the series' supernatural spin-off in acces

Hands on with Age of Empires: Mythologies

Age of Empires - The Age of Kings

 

Age of Empires: Age of Kings is a noble, if distinctly old fashioned, effort to capture the magic of a classic series in the palm of your hand.

Lengthy and rewarding Campaign mode ; Very addictive

Lacklustre graphics and sound ; Stuck in the past

Apart from these minor quibbles, Age of Empires: Age of Kings is a noble, if distinctly old fashioned, effort to capture the magic of a classic series in the palm of your hand. Amazingly, it even gives the sublime Advance Wars Dual Strike a run for its...
