    Offers a ton of new elements to keep you glued to your screen for hours. Whether playing against the computer or online, "The Conquerors" improves an already fantastic game.
  2. It's as if Michaelangelo came down, picked up an already beautiful painting and made it a masterpiece.
  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. Just when Age of Empires II was starting to seem a little played out, Ensemble Studios has made it a game that might just keep you up late again with The Conquerors expansion.
  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.
  6. 85
    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.

    Still one of the best strategy games ever! Maybe the graphics are out of date, but that does not matter, it's all about gameplay.

    A perfectly balanced game with fun elements (Monks!) that allow deep strategy and re-playability that lasts decades. Bring'em on!
