  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.

    Good gaming! Rather frustrating at times though. Sometimes the video messes up but this is probably due to the video card being used in combination with limited RAM. Expand

    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 Maybe the graphics are out of date, but that does not matter, it's all about gameplay.

    Age of Kings was a great game that needed some improvements, but Conquerors fixes that.
