The highly anticipated real time strategy game 'Age of Empires 2' emerges once again to conquer a new legion of fans on the PS2.

The action begins as players are crowned king of one of 13 powerful civilisations, including Vikings, Celts and Japanese. Players must lead their people over the course of 1,000 years, from the fall of Rome up to the Middle Ages, in search of total dominance and control of the world.

The survival and prosperity of the civilisation is dependent upon the player's skill and tactical expertise. Crucial decisions must be made on the allocation of resources, technology planning and military development. Players will travel through time on their ambitious path of victory by seizing control of enemy civilisations and building and defending wonders of the world.

'Age of Empires 2' successfully recreates the epic nature of the original and pushes the real time strategy genre to astounding limits.
  • USB Keyboard & USB mouse support

 Not For PS2

Personally I think that this game is meant for the PC. Moving around and general game play is much easier on the PC.
The population cap for the PC version is 200 but you can set it from 75 to 200.
Also on the PC you can go online quite easily.
It is a shame that the microsoft games website for this game was stopped.
But it is just as easy to find other players on Gamespy (a downloadable piece of useful kit that has gaming lobbys and allows for easy set up and joining of a game)
The only problem i have with this game is that it doesnt require much tactic what so ever. It is basically first to Imperial Age that has the best units (usually paladins) and attacks the player first.
Either that or they rush you straight away and build military buildings outside your base stopping you expanding. I warn you, online experience can be very off putting with this game. But don't be disheartened. It will get easy as you get to know how to avoid getting your ass handed to you.

However if its more realistic battles you want. I would advise you to take a look at a game for the PC called Warrior Kings. This game has a population cap of 9999.
This can be very chaotic and laggy in online games if you connection isnt 4mb or higher.
Also there is hardly anyone online. But still a good game non the less

 Good but could be better

This game is great as you fight the battles and come up with new tactics. There is one promlem what really disapoints me though 2 player you can not play im sure theres a way but me and my friend cant find out how all so you can only have a maxium of 100 men which just makes the game less real as you wish you could have thousands. If you want advice as well as people keep coming in and destroying your town put a lot of buildings with the cannons and not the arrows and put a wall round it so that solders have to get in to the wall then they can get in to the cannon building. I heard that on PC this game is better as you can have much more men. Apart from that this is a good game and if you have the money buy it.

If your PS2 does not play blue discs this is a blue disc game sorry for the bad news but it doesnt play on my PS2 either. If your PS2 does play blue discs lucky you.

I agree with the other reviews. but maybe it is better on PC I do not know, but I really enjoy playing this game. Not the best graphics and so on but great simple gameplay and if you like building a society to perfection and then crush your enemies this is the game for you.
