|Age of Empires II: The Age of Kings is the sequel to the award-winning, best-selling real-time strategy game Age of Empires. Age of Empires II spans a thousand years, from the fall of Rome through the Middle Ages in which players lead one of 13 civilizations into greatness. You start off small, with nothing more than a town center and a few peasants and from this meager beginning slowly add infrastructure to your civilization that either enhances your resource gathering or pumps out tons of varied military units. The game keeps the epic scope of Age of Empires' game play while evolving the combat and economic features.|

Age of empires is a game about strategy and conquest. Some things that are just outstanding in this game are the ways you are able to build your own army and civilization from the ground up. The game is also challenging for your enemies use all sorts of siege weapons to try to break in your city walls. Something very tedious about this game is all the resource gathering (wood, food, gold and stone). However it is essential that you find a way to gather enough resources and fight incoming invaders. The difficulty behind this is that you may not have enough resources to purchase soldiers or have enough soldiers when your town is attacked leading to defeat. Warfare on the ocean is something I like about this game because it takes the fight to the high seas. You can purchase things such as cannon galleons that shoot to destruction ships that explode on contact with other ships! The advancement through the ages is something cool. I like the way your town appears more advanced as it advances through the ages. In conclusion some other things that I liked about the game are the trebuchets which are like catapults, wonder buildings and destruction someone’s civilization at the end.
Age Of Empires 2 is a masterpiece. The sequel to Age Of Empires keeps everything that made the first one great, throws away almost everything that made it bad, and throws an amazing, revamped user interface that gives the player god-like power if used expertly. The different civilizations are fantastic. The advantages and disadvantages of each one make the game interesting and balanced, although some civilizations are better (overall) than others. I mean, really, who doesn't love (and equally hate) the Longbowmen? The War Elephants? The Woad Raiders? The Throwing Axeman? The units are the best part of the game. Except for the paladin and scorpion wipeout trick, the unit balance is superb. The naval battles are amazing, with fireships, ballista ships, and even ships that launch cannonballs. There are more buildings, tons more upgrades, and a brand-new unit I like to call the x-factor: the trebuchet. This is one of the units that makes AOE 2 a true delight. As built up as a city can become, it can be destroyed in minutes with enough trebuchets. The multiplayer aspect of this game is what solidifies AOE 2's standing as one of the best games ever made. It is surreal. I've had 12-hour multiplayer sessions many times. You just don't want to stop. It's so fun!!! It's madness! As far as challenge goes, you'll get all you want. Just try beating the entire game on the hardest difficulty and see the headache you get. And if you get through with that, buy the expansion pack and eat your heart out. Buy this game! Play it until you're sick of it! That probably won't happen, but even if it does, when you come back from your break you'll be twice as hooked.
This is hands down one of the greatest real time strategy games out there. I like it b/c it isn't turn based which means you can move your troops across the maps at once without being limited to movements per turn.
THe expansion packs for this game are great too. And since it is an older game you can find it for great prices on ebay. Don't let the year this was released or the graphic pictures disuade you one bit from buying this.
