This is a great game and a solid follow up to the original. In my opinion Age of Empires is the hallmark of real time strategy games and this was reinforced by this games sequel, which remain the greatest strategy game ever made. A word of warning though, avoid the so called 'HD' re-release of the game that's on Steam as it was a very lazy production and is full of glitches… Read Full Review

If I could take back the countless hours I spent playing this game it is quite possible I'd be five years younger. If you like RTS games then you should've heard of this. If you haven't, then you don't know what you're missing. This game brings together the best bits of C&C, Total Annihilation and Warcraft 2 to make one of the most compelling and addictive games I've played. The graphics are not "try too hard" 3D so they've aged well and at the time looked superb. The interface is smooth… Read Full Review

Another Microsoft's great game. This game is very good, the buildings, characters, environmental and graphics are GOOD. If you played the campaign, the storyline is very interesting and exciting… Read Full Review

This is perhaps the best from Microsoft. The later versions like Rise of Nations or Age of Mythology has not been up to the mark. AOE has been much more creative & challenging. I hope MS comes up with some more extension for AOE… Read Full Review

Whilst this game isnt your classic arcade type game and could certainly be labelled as a bit 'nerdy' - I absoultely loved playing this game.
Its just one of those fairly simple games that is massively addictive and you end up playing for about 3 times as long as you intended.
The amount of gameplay you get out of it compared to the cost of it makes it one of the best value games I've ever played.
Would recommend to anyone that wants to fill those winter evenings!… Read Full Review

I guess I would rate Age of Empires II: The Age of Kings from Microsoft just average. The graphics isn't superb quality, the gameplay is similar with other genres (try playing battle realms).
I guess what I would recommend is Age of Empire III. That one has more quality and superb gameplay.
Overall, this game is for average gamers, instead of this one, try AOE III. You'll enjoy it more… Read Full Review

Bought this game 2 days ago and I am so addicted to it! Played it for 4 hours straight today. The best strategy game I have ever played, And I have tried quite a lot of them. AoE II is definitely worth buying if your into strategy games, Wide range of units, upgrades for your village, and it even has an ONLINE multiplayer! This is one the best things about this game, if your bored doing computers, Get online… Read Full Review

Age of Empires 2: The Age of Kings is an amazing game almost equaling Star Craft as a strategy game. The game play is very realistic such as arrows missing its target. There is a wide variety of units to create. The player is also allowed to choose battle formations, thus creating an amazingly realistic game play… Read Full Review

Age of Empires 2: The Age of Kings is such a great and classic RTS game, that even though it was released like 4 years ago, it is still worth to buy. The units and siege weapons of the game look very nice. I also like the idea of ages, which lets you upgrade your units etc. It was a good idea each nation had a uniqiue unit, which made gaming more interesting… Read Full Review

Age of Empires 2: The Age of Kings is by far the best game--strategy or not--ever. It is so worth the money, I bought it almost 2 years ago and I still play it all the time. You can never stop getting better at it. The thing that makes it better mostly is the economy. You can never have enough villagers, nor can you run out of resources. There's like 5 ways to collect food, 3 ways to collect gold, and only 1 for stone and wood. The graphics aren't great because its like 5-6 years old, but… Read Full Review

Age of Empires is the excellent strategy series from Microsoft. The Age of Kings is by far the best in the series, even perhaps the best in the gerne. The basics are, you build up an empire in the middle ages where you manage your resources (Food, Wood, Stone & Gold), build up your army (Knights, Infantry, Ships, Siege Weapons etc.) and conquer or befriend allies and enemies.
In this game you can choose from 13 civilizatioms (ranging from British to Goths to Japanese) and build up your empire… Read Full Review
