With this taking place in the olden times, fighting for land was not to uncommon. There is a lot of killing in this game but this violence is not seen up close so it will not scar your child emotionally like so many of the games that are on the market today. With no sex, drugs, or occultism, this game would be suitable for children 12 and up. This Game gives a lot of strategic elements into your game play. With ongoing battles and building a civilization this game will kill some major time without you even knowing it. I would highly recommend this game to anyone who enjoys highly strategic games like this one.

Obwohl inzwischen zwei Jahre seit dem Erscheinen von Age of Empires 2 vergangen sind, markiert Microsofts Echtzeit-Strategie nach wie vor die Genrespitze. Allein die Vielfalt an Einheiten und die dadurch entstehenden taktischen Möglichkeiten suchen ihresgleichen. Dazu kommt ein ausgewogenes Verhältnis zwischen Schlachten, Basenbau und Erforschung neuer Technologiezweige. Die Kampagnen bieten interessante Hintergründe und sind geschichtlich fundiert und gewissenhaft umgesetzt. Und wer sich gegen die Computergeneräle bewährt hat, findet in der riesigen Community garantiert genug menschliche Gegenspieler. Das alles macht Age of Empires 2 zu einem der besten Spiele der vergangenen Jahre und sollte in keiner Sammlung fehlen, zumal viele der kleinen Unzulänglichkeiten im Zusatzpack Conquerors beseitigt wurden.
