Click to read.Strategy fans rejoice! We now have a reason to re-flip open Nintendo\'s shiny little system. Microsoft\'s big name strategy series Age of Empires has made it to the DS in the form of Age of Empires: The Age of Kings. Even if you already picked up the PC version - and who hasn\'t? - Age of Kings will hopefully offer a reason to take the series on the go.

Here\'s a laydown of the game\'s features:

?Command one of five different civilizations: the Britons, Franks, Mongols, Saracens or Japanese;

?Control special \'hero\' units such as Richard the Lionheart, Minamoto Yoshitsune, Joan of Arc and Genghis Khan whose special Hero Powers affect the battlefield;

?Lead over 60 different types of units into battle--from archers and monks to hand cannoneers, battering rams and samurai;

?Construct and upgrade buildings to create resources for your civilizations and provide access to new units and technologies;

?Research over 55 different technologies like chemistry, ballistics, iron casting and spying to advance civilization into the next Age;

?Consult a new Combat Advisor for advice on a battle\'s outcome;

?Battle wirelessly with up to four players;

?Gain Empire Points to unlock maps and units while improving your Emperor Rank;

?Includes all new music plus the sounds from the best-selling PC version.
