wonderful game, suitable for Everyone (though it does sport realistic
violence), with tremendous details, terrific historical backgrounds,
and marvelous game play. If you have never played a real-time strategy
combat sim before, this is the game that will give you a great
introduction to the genre. If you have played RTS products, this
program deserves a place on your shelf"
IGN: "Age of
Sail II isn't just a good game because of the dearth of competitors;
it's a good game in it's own right. There are plenty of problems with
it, but it still delivers a reasonably accurate simulation of the
Wooden World with a little bit of fun thrown in for good measure"
