  1. It's as if Michaelangelo came down, picked up an already beautiful painting and made it a masterpiece.
  2. It manages to improve an already stellar game, adds a helpful and interesting stack of new features, and offers nearly as much scripted gameplay as the original title.
  3. An excellent addition to the original game. It offers increased depth, extends the replay ability of the game, and offers enough tweaks to eliminate some of the frustrations.
  4. Instead of merely giving out a few major embellishments -- and there are those -- Ensemble went a number of steps further by enhancing nearly every aspect of the game.
  5. The multiple additions in "The Conquerors" add up to be more than enough to entice "Age of Kings" players to focus their attention on this ambitious, deeply strategic game once again - and for a long time.

    Incredibly balanced and well polished. If you have AoK, you must get The Conquerers Expansion.
  7. This expansion's additions prove that more is indeed better, but the balancing issues are troubling.

    Fantastic expansion to a fanstastic game, hands down the best game of all time. Other than the new maps and civilizations, this expansion also brought many tweaks and fixes to the original, like being able to que farms at the mill, which saved a lot of frustration. Expand

    incredibly fun, still offers great deal of playability. the community is far from dead and great amount of fun comes with the modding. on heavengames there exists many tools to mod and also many mods and extensions to the game.. Expand

    This some the best game in strategy game I have played. The graphic feels like you are looking at a board game like chess from a 3d view. But still it is a fun time playing it. Expand

    The best strategy game for me. Played thousands of hours with my brothers over LAN & then in Internet.
    If you are looking for modern day
    graphics this is not the game for you, if you go for game play over graphics keep on reading.

    Cons:
    - Not the best AI, game difficulty is set by giving additional resources to computer player in the start.
    - Extremely addictive

    Pros:
    - No 2 games alike
    - Many civilizations to play
    - Still active game rooms for competitive multi-player game play after a decade, check through "GameRanger"
    - Addition to built in game types, various community created game types to play.
    - You can have a loads of fun by just watching a recorded game which consist of computer players.
    - With map editor you can create your own game scenarios.
    - After all that community created Forgotten Empires expansion pack with new civilization with improved game play for more fun.
