Age of Empires II User Reviews

9.6

After 5 years i still play it all the time

The good:

Deep,never gets old,good graphics,great sound

The bad:

The MSN gamingZone the best place to play it online recently stopped supporting it.

Summary:

Age of Kings will forever be one of the best strategy games of all time. The insanely addictive gameplay, wealth of tactics, the historical accuracy and the satisfaction of conquering just make it incredible. Seriously this is deeper than Deepy Mcdeep and his adventures at the bottom of the ocean.

AoK's graphics are better than average for strategy games. All units are instantly recognizable and animate smoothly. Fighting animations look good and so do all villager animations such as chopping wood or fishing. The backgrounds are drawn bitmaps so zooming in and out isn't available. It looks g...

Age of Empires II

The good:

Many Civilisations to choose from.
Graphics improved.
Build your own unique army.
A lot of fun to play with friends.

The bad:

Some resources like rock are most of the time in small amounts.

Summary:

I havent played that many games similar to Age of Empires II but comparing this game to them it rocks. The most important thing that is great about this game is that you can choose from different civilizations and there are a lot of cool things that you can create if you have the right amount of resources. Resources are pretty easy to get especially food and wood. The only resource that can get pretty tought to find is stone because they dont have a lot of it in the game and that is one of the main resources besiedes wood that you need to succed it the game. The graphics have some what impr...

Even better than the original

The good:

Different civilisations from the first game
More units and technologies
Unit unique to every civilisation
Castles

The bad:

Length of multiplayer games

Summary:

This game is the sequel to Age of Empires. It has the same principles but has added many more things in. There are more units, some the same and some new ones, more technologies and in general the whole game just seems bigger. There are still the single player story missions where you can rein act famous scenarios like Attila the Hun's campaigns, but most of the fun will come from the multiplayer matches to the death.

The foundations of your base are still the villagers who are required to build and repair all your buildings. You need to collect resources (food, wood, gold and stone) with th...

Japanese Empire RULZ!!

The good:

Japanese army, nice big battle feild, the ways you can and have to keep your economy up....

The bad:

the graphics arent the greatest....

Summary:

I really only picked up this game because I heard it had simallar action to the battles in Warcraft...So I decided to try it out, and the game is great...only when you play as the Japanese Army...MUH HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!!! >.> <.< Well you can tell thats my main force...I really liked how there was a wider battlefield than to WarCraft....plus the armies were in greater numbers than WC...:/ but not as much bloodshed as there should be...and the technology growth is kinda lame..I wish it stayed in the Fedual Era troughout the game....but oh well...i like to have Asian battles sometime..the M...

Age of empires II

The good:

graphics are alright exept you dont need them because you cant see the faces of the people up close so there's no point.I also like the random map where you can play against the computer and also try out different civilazations i've only had it about 2 weeks so i havent got board of it and i dont think i will.

The bad:

well i have only tried one campaign so far the Joan of arc one i found it really boring so i just couldn't be bothered doing any others so now i'm only playing the random maps or just making a map in map editor.

Summary:

i like it how you start off at the dark age and work up to the imperial age and look at how all the buildings looked at the time.its also good that you have to collect the food,wood,gold and stone its really realistic.But all in all i think this game is great.

6.6

The Age of Kings

The good:

Graphics a great improvement over the original...

The bad:

but still not quite up to the mark.

Summary:

Due to some unfortunate circumstances I found that my computer hardisk had crashed and all the games loaded had been uninstalled. The only CD I had available was the AOK one.
Perhaps it is a bit of an insult to Aok that I only bothered playing this game when I had no other alternative. Well anyway on to the review.
So we go bang into the gameplay..with an interesting, fastpaced introduction you are left with quite a few choices on the screen. You can learn to play, do a skirmish or play a campaign. I played the learning campaign first in which you have to command William Wallace's forces from...
