    Review 0AD

    0 A.D. is a real-time strategy game that, like many of the most successful ones in recent times, is set in an environment that bets on the conquest of territory and war with historical overtones, being ideal for lovers of these scenarios. If you have played Age of Empires II: The Age of Kings before, you will surely notice the many elements in common that exist between both titles and how one has been inspired by the other.

    Even talking a bit about the game mechanics of 0 A.D., we have to say that it hardly differs from one of Age of Empires II: The Age of Kings, taking into account that everything starts with a small village and its few settlers and by the time we want to realize it, we will have the possibility of obtaining objects, treating them, and little by little, expanding our village, raising buildings, defense walls, and many more spaces.

    Of course, all this has to do with the fact that we will coexist in the same space with other villages. Concerning them, we will have to make a decision, since it will be necessary to get their friendship, to be sure that they will not attack us, or go to battle, try to defeat them, and keep all the material things they have. The truth is that there is rarely total tranquility in our villages; something constantly threatens it.

    In this title, you will see that there are nine civilizations that we can have fun with, some of the most famous historical ones, as in the case of the Bretons, the people, the Romans, or the Greeks. Beyond that, you must know that the developers have worked hard because each civilization constructs buildings that correspond to their styles, so it's all in the details.

    Then, this game has three modes, among which we can choose according to the entertainment type we want access to. The first of these is Scenarios , in which we will have to select a civilization in its preset battle. In a Campaign , you can develop all the events yourself, while in Multiplayer , you can face your colleagues or friends through the Internet.

    Another exciting aspect of this release has to do with the fact that it has an integrated map editor, thanks to which we have the possibility of creating our scenarios so that then the civilizations we want to control move through them. The attraction of this feature is that if we have a preferred attack strategy, for example, we can adapt the scenarios to them to improve our chances of success in battle.

    Although in the beginning, it was only a mod of the game that inspired it, with time, 0 A.D. was transformed into a title with its graphics engine, which was well achieved. In this case, it is much closer to what we can find in the third installment of that franchise, precisely when we talk about the Age of Empires. Remember that this game is open source and guarantees that it is permanently free.

    Precisely, since we have mentioned this issue, we did not want to take into account that the interface is one of the solid points that we can say when we talk about this program, at least about the menus, before the action begins. All the configuration functions and options we have at hand are easy to find, making your games adapt perfectly to the type of game you intend to play.

    A curious detail of this title is that its name, 0 A.D., refers to a historical time that never really existed. However, this is not a casual detail but a deliberate one. This has to do with the fact that since civilizations that did not coincide in time or space are brought together, a new era is created, in which its creators wonder which of them would have prevailed in case their confrontations were constant.

    To ensure a wide variety of civilizations, 0 A.D. includes all those that occupied the central part of the world as we know it in the 500 years before Christ and the 500 years after his arrival. Of course, many of us are anxiously waiting for other civilizations to be added in the future, and we would love to see, for example, some from the Eastern world appear on the scene.

    In summary, we can say that if you are an Age of Empires lover, you can be sure that 0 A.D. is a game that will keep you thoroughly entertained, considering the aspects in which it resembles, but also the outstanding work of its developers in those issues that differ. If you want to develop your civilization and village and be sure to defeat enemies, then you should download this title right now.
