It is similar to the Fire Emblem game except you don't need to keep buying weapons for each character every now and then. If you have played the regular Age of Mythology for PC, then you should have a good foundation on which to stand on. Its a little of both games. The reason why it somewhat resembles Fire Emblem is because it is turn based. It is reasonable because the DS is not like a computer that can move all the units at once. Then there is the fact that the screen is too small to pull off something like that There is a Fog of War, so you have to explore to find your enemies. If the manual does not explain enough for you, their is always the tutorials with someone named "Oracle" there too guide you; plus it gives you free points for you to save and spend later in the section on the main menu called "Mythology". Here you can purchase new items such as heros or gods to use in game like skirmish or random map as better said. When in game, graphics are good and look realistic. There is no blood, which is good if you have a younger one who wants to see you play your new game. When you fight there is an animation of the fight scene and there is an option to take it off once your tired of it. If you get this game, and i suggest you right this down, there is a triangle for this game just like Fire Emblem; here it is: regular units good vs. heros, heros good vs. myth units, myth units good vs. regular units. A benefit to ranged units is that your units do not have to be one space away to attack. They can attack from about three. So its like Fire Emblem and Age of Mythology (for PC) put together.
