DS THQ, £29.99

This RTS lets players choose between using Norse warriors, Greeks or Egyptians to build and

defend their civilisation. You get a lot of game for your money here, from three in-depth

singleplayer campaigns to online multiplayer options with plenty of standalone skirmishes

along the way. Battles take a simple, turn-based form, but you gain new powers and abilities

as you progress through the game, depending onwhich faction you are playing as. Elegant

and absorbing, Age of Empires: Mythologies is an excellent handheld adventure.
