The second game in the popular Age of Empires series. You command one of 13 historical empires and help them develop their economy, food supply, technology, and military. Naturally, conquest is the ultimate goal. Players start with an empire that is in one of four "ages" – the Dark Age, Feudal Age, Castle Age, or Imperial Age – which means that only certain technologies are available. The player can bring his civilization into the next age to make better weapons, armor, and ships available. Creating units requires varying amounts of four resources, so players must chop down trees for wood, forage, fish, hunt, or farm for food, and mine for gold and stone. Historical information is provided before and after every level, making the game educational as well addictively fun.
