Age of Empires Campaigns

Progress the Aztec civilization through the ages, from humble Asian explorers, to gruesome sacrificial, blood lusting, war-crazed mad men. Fight against the Indians who never want to give up, until they find out how nasty you really are and flee as fast as they can. This campaign includes some really cool introduction pictures. All 12 maps are very carefully designed, with plenty of natural hazards and tactical points; they also look pretty good too. All levels are original and different from one another; each has been tested for playability.

Age of Empires: Aztec Empire Campaign: Island of Paradise Scenario

This campaign is a fictional story about the Aztecs. It begins with the discovery of America by a group of people who would soon become the Aztecs, and ends with the conquest of the area and conversion to Christianity. Maps were done fairly well, and some time was taken to make them. Scenario balance went from extremely easy to quite difficult. However, I assume this was intentional because it is a progression.

  • Map: ★★★★☆
  • Balance: ★★★★☆
  • Creativity: ★★★★★
  • Playability: ★★★★☆
  • Story/Instructions: ★★★☆☆
  • Overall: ★★★★☆

The campaign was very creative, in that it had some novel scenarios, and the use of artistic images (depictions of temples, etc.) in place of instruction maps. The amount of creativity in the design of the scenarios made for a high playability rating. Unfortunately, the instructions were the low point of this campaign. Victory conditions were relatively clear, but the story was a little thin in some places, and was not at all historical. Despite this, I consider this campaign well worth the download overall.

ShadowAoE Granary
Age of Empires: David’s Saga II

The promise of victory and kingship await you in this campaign! Can you reunite the kingdoms of Judah and Israel to become the one king of God’s people? I strongly recommend you to download The David Saga – Ascension of a King, reviewed as the best at the Granary at AoE Heaven. I have tried it and I have to agree – it is the best I have played so far. The Age of Empires Whiz Kid: Imhotep, has also produced a sequel: David Saga – King David. Play it if you own Age of Empires: It is truly excellent in every way.
