I had been a fan of Age of Empires for a long time, and this game for the Pocket PC sure amuses me. It has a lot of things dubbed right out of the popular PC game (I own it). Unfortunately, there is no multiplayer. I hope there would be infrared, Wi-fi or Bluetooth multiplayer in future versions of AOE.

Other that that everything is impressive. Works fine in Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition (Microsoft's newest OS, great on my Dell Axim X30) it can display in landscape mode in every version. Music and sound was great, primarily because the sound effects are always part of AOE. It warns you when something of yours is attacked, or when a new military unit is created. Graphics are so impressive, I forgot I am actually on a handheld computer.

This game is also very addictive. I can't believe how it can make you so focus on the game. I bet this game would raise pocket PC sales. You can never let go of this game.

Such a awesome game, should be rated 9.5/10... because there is no multiplayer mode.

Here are the screenshots.
