Pros Wonderful gameplay, intuitive controls, feels like a proper AoE game
Cons Unresolved fatal bugs
Summary Till it froze mid-save and refused ever to start up again, this was my favourite ever DS game. Wonderful gameplay - like a cross between the PC original and chess or, i suppose, Advance wars.
If Majestico would just sort out the bugs i'd recommend it to anyone. But until then, it's a waste of money. Such a shame.
Pros There were plenty of chalenging maps and missions.
Cons If you enter a name shorter than 4 characters like "Joe" or "Bob" the game will eventually freeze after you try to save then never boot up again.
Summary I liked the game well enough until it stopped working. At first I was afraid I hadn't put the game card in securely enough and would just lose my saved data. But no, after I tried to play again I got nothing but two black screens. I found out later that Magesco had heard about this glitch and hasn't yet released a fix. A temporary work around was release to use 4 or more characters in your name. I found out about this only after my game had permenently frozen.
Pros Great game awesome fun!
Cons If you save in multiplayer the game wont work
Summary This game is amazing but it has a terrible bug. DONT SAVE ON EMPIRE MAP OR THE GAME WILL FREEZE and you wont be able to play it again. I had this happen to me twice now and figured it out. Now remember that! I have only pressed save and quit that caused this error but I wouldnt take any chances.
