    Age of Kings is O.K

    I think AOK is O.K. I get bored after about 3 days of playing it. If your in the mood to play it then it is great. But I never am in the mood to play it because it can get pretty boring

    13,eric the red

    I think that aok is the best game I have ever played. I get bored of most games but this one I have a had for a year and have never gotten tired of it. I already have one of the strategy books. I highly recommend this book to everyone that likes strategy games. If you ever have the money please buy the strategy guide. and if you don't have the game I think that you need to buy the game. it is expensive but is worth every penny.(if you want to spend 54.00 on a game)

    Concise General Ideas

    The book reminds me of many British informative books from Oxford or Cambridge Press. The book organizes the gamer's goals efficiently and states the main and branching goals in AoE2. Examples are good, but I think they require specific gaming environments and may not work on all AoE2 games. It simply helps you prioritize your goals when playing and act not by memory, but by the way things are going in the game.

    Great book for improving your AOK game play

    The first eight chapters of this book are virtual gold mines of winning tips and strategies written by some of the best AOK players around. If you wish to improve your ability to fight and win, this book is for you. Chapters 9-12 contain walkthrus of the campaign scenarios. Chapter 13 discusses the development AOK and Chapter 14 explains Ensemble Studios design philosophy. Let slip the dogs of war... I'm armed with knowledge and now must execute on the battlefield.
