Retail Box ArtWith new civilisations, units, technologies and game types, Age of Empires 2: The Conquerors Expansion is a solid add-on that will certainly appeal to fans of Age of Empires 2. Like the original, The Conquerors Expansion pack concentrates on producing more vast kingdoms, more ambitious civilisations and gorgeous graphics. Couple this with the improved AI and new challenging scenarios and you have an add-on, which is not merely more of the same. The five new civilisations, range from the Huns to the Spanish with four new campaigns surrounding them. Choose the Spanish and you get to play the infamous El Cid, whilst playing the Huns will allow you to charge across Europe playing Attila the Hun. If the idea of new civilisations isn't enough to please any fan of the series, then perhaps the introduction of 26 new technologies probably will. Here, the addition of Chinese Rocketry and British Yeomen are just to name but a few that will have you taxing your mind on how to use to your advantage. Whilst The Conquerors Expansion concentrates heavily on more single player campaigns and more civilisations to explore, the game adds another three game types to the multiplayer section of the game. "King of the Hill" is based on victory begin obtained by possession of a monument in the centre of the map at the end of the countdown. Wonder race, on the other hand is a more peaceful option and based around pure economics. Allied together so no battles can be fought, the aim is to earn enough money and resources to build a wonder, whereas the third option is to hold control of the wonder for a 400-year period. Age of Empires 2: The Conquerors Expansion offers a lot more as a mission pack than most; whilst at the same time bringing some nice new features to what was is already an impressive game. -- Stuart Miles
