Age of Empires is becoming a classic which Microsoft knows how to nurture. In the second version of this game, Age of Empires II – The Age of Kings, you’ll be able to enjoy other eras of history using an interface similar to the one used in the first game, so you’ll be able to smoothly start playing.
This recommended strategy game’s main shortcoming is common to many strategy games: you can’t grasp where time had gone to when you finally will yourself to leave your PC and look out the window only to discover that while you were playing the regime had changed, new types of cars are roaming the streets and that you’re no longer a high school student but a grandfather of 3 grandchildren…
In other words, the number of hours you’ll have to put into this game, for better and for worse, is overwhelming.
Age of Empires II – The Age of Kings is a sequel to the award winning, best selling and real time strategy game: Age of Empires. It spans a thousand years starting with the falling of Rome and going into the medieval times as it lets players lead one of 13 civilizations into greatness. It keeps track with the original game’s character while developing the combat and economy aspects.
It’s considered as one of the most popular games and gets downloaded by dozens of millions of users throughout the world.
