Strategy 02 November 2001

The second installment belonging to an incredibly popular series of real-time strategy games. Age of Empires II: The Age of the Kings was developed by Ensemble Studios. The player assumes command of a civilization chosen (13 in total here) and leads them through subsequent stages of development. For example, one can play as Franks, Mongols, Celts or Vikings. Compared to the first installment, the visuals were improved (more detailed), as was the AI of the player's subordinates - as a result, additional orders can be given to them, such as to patrol the vicinity, to guard a designated spot, or to follow a specific target. Furthermore, an option to group units into various formations was introduced. Apart from that, the player can now trade and manipulate the prices of different resources. Age of Empires II: The Age of the Kings features both single player modes (such as a campaign devoted to a Scottish national hero William Wallace) and a multiplayer variant (PC version only).

Heroes of Might and Magic: Quest for the Dragon Bone Staff (PS2)

Strategy 12 January 2000

A console spin-off of the popular fantasy turn-based strategy game series by New World Computing. Heroes of Might and Magic: Quest for the Dragon Bone Staff, developed by the 3DO Company, differs greatly from the PC installments of the series and is based on the franchise's predecessor, the 1990 game King's Bounty. Your main task is saving the dying king, but to achieve that, you have to find the eponymous Dragon Bone Staff in 500 days. The gameplay mechanics have been significantly simplified, and you have no castle to occupy or defend. You control one of the four available heroes, and the gameplay focuses mostly on exploration, during which you gather gold and recruit warriors for your army, participating in turn-based battles.
