The first challenge the players have to face is collecting resources, namely f food, wood, stone, and gold. Eventually, you can even have your villagers fishing and exploiting the sea in their search of necessary supplies.

Players have the option of choosing to play the single player campaigns, multiplayer, or random maps.

After obtaining enough vital supplies, the player can train more villagers, construct buildings, making vessels, or even trade goods. Options are expanded by advancing through the ages, namely the Dark Age, Feudal Age, Castle Age, and Imperial Age, which represents the “evolution” of your civilization.

Its multiplayer options quite satisfy the players expectations, and there is also the Microsoft’s Internet Gaming Zone.

Finally, its great graphics and the very good AI players are challenged to confront make this game absolutely worth-playing for all real-time strategy fans.
