Age of Empires II introduces players to the empires of the past. It holds 13 civilizations and historical campaigns. The game proves to be a breakthrough in terms of gaming as it incorporates historical figures, civilizations, events and places. It also has an intense multiplayer action and lots of character units. The graphics are filled with real life scenic panoramas such as oceans and lakes, hills and mountains.

A newbie may opt to start with the campaign mode. It has an excellent in-game tutorial that will guide the player on how to lead the empire. The basics of the game are taught in an easy to grasp approach.

After the tutorial, a series of campaigns, 9 in total, are available to the player. These are based on historical information, and the events inspired by historical leaders and known locations. The campaign does not stick to the generic objectives of eradicating enemies, there are campaigns such as protecting a cathedral or carrying out an assassination plot. Furthermore, the scripted events and dialogues add color and life to the campaign.

Age of Empires II also has an attractive collection of graphics. The scenes are nostalgic and look realistic. Characters and animations are fluid and precise. Structures are elegantly detailed and perfectly suited to the ancient atmosphere of the game. There are lots of contents unique to each civilization. The buildings also transform as the age and technology progresses. Overall the graphic quality of AOE2 is stunning.

This game would not top the list if not for its high end sound effects. The combination of graphic and sound quality sets the whole tone of the game. Character voice and battle sounds are very rich and accurate. Everything in Age of Empires just looks very real and this reality runs throughout the game.

As one of the best real time strategy game Age of Empires indeed is a real must have. It captures history and excitement altogether. Napoleon and Alexander might be ashamed when he sees your battle plans.
