X-Play writes: "A few years ago, Age of Empires was released on the DS. Unlike its real-time cousin on the PC, this Age of Empires was a turn-based strategy game. An odd choice to be sure, but in this particular case it worked, providing players with a solid tactical strategy game with much of the flavor of the original. What didn't sit so well were the atrocious graphics. The mess of chunky pixels and colors made it far too difficult to tell what was going on".
