The Portuguese Civ Mod II is much more than the title could let you think : not only it adds new civs, which has been seen many times before, but it transforms the gameplay of the entire game to take it to a level no mod had reached before.

Usefulness/Novelty: 5
Let's talk about novelty : really, I don't know what to start with. With the 5th resource, Experience, which is gathered thanks to your achievements ? With the new age, Renaissance, and all of its gunpowder units and awesome canons ? Or should I mention first the countless new features (packing buildings for raider civs, trainable heroes, tell me you are not excited about that !) ?
If you have ever heared of cool features that was planned to be part of the original game but ended up scrapped, like slaver units, boarding boats and so much more, you finally have the oppurtunity to see them in action !
I realized I haven't talked about the new civs and so much more, but I hope I gave you a glimpse of how innovative this mod is, and therefore totally indispensable.

Quality/Instructions: 5
The quality is the top you can find, at the level of Age of Chivalry and ToME, almost professional. New interface graphics, new voices for each civ, it only lacks a campaign. Oh wait, go the Age of Kings Campaigns in the menu and you'll see it is planned !
This is not a total conversion but it somehow feels like one, you still play the Age of Empires you know and love but at the same time it brings you back to the time you played it the first time, a bit confusing at first but so enjoyable.
It includes a new building set for the iberic civs, and new graphics for the Renaissance buildings. Part of the units graphics are high quality 3D modelled and others are well executed copy paste graphics, and they all mix well and fit into the game nicely.
It would be nipicking to try to point out some imbalances, for it is impossible to avoid them when you make so much changes, and the game is fairly balanced overall.
Some could say there are so much changes they don't recognize the game, to them I reply they have forgotten how to have fun.
The installation is intuitive with the custom installer, and it comes with a PDF that ewplains the novelties of the mod.

Additional Comments:
Download it. Not much else to say. Directly in my top 3 mods everyone must have played, with the two monuments that are Age of Chivalry and Tales of Middle-Earth.

This mod is not your everyday adding civis/units mod this takes the game to a whole different level.It has many new and innovative things done which no one else has used in mods before(Auto scouting/call to arms and more).This mod adds new units new civis more than anything completely new usable resource which can be acquired by many ways and a new age.Plus there are more additional things that we are seeing for the first time and will give a very different style of game play and will be useful in crating unique scenarios,the potential is limitless for the creative.

Quality/Instructions: 5
Instructions for installing are pretty much straight forward and the author is personally giving fixes to people who are having issues with the mod.There is even a link posted for the edited files so users can manually install the mod if theyu are having issues with the installer.

Additional Comments:Overall one of the most complete mods published here and recommended for downloading.
For some people who does not like new or additional things added to the original game this might not be the best mod.

The Portuguese Civ Mod is the best total(at least semi-total) conversion of the game AoK:TC. It is a very good mod. It enables Portuguese, Aragonese, Navarrese, Moors and Berbers civilizations. They work great as they look great. There is some new buildings like tavern, fire tower etc. I like them. I especially liked the hero feature,the regional mercenaries and support unit feature.

Quality/Instructions: 5
There were many new units and buildings. Most of them look good, but if it had the AoKish texture type, it would have been better. And there were no bugs.

Additional Comments:
Despite the fact the textures is not AoKish, I give it a overall 5 rating, because the other excellent features cover that. I like this mod and I think it is the best semi overhaul mod I have seen.

The Portuguese civ mod is a name that does not justify its enormous potential. It is not just a mod introducing new civs. It is way big in its purpose, introducing new features, units and takes gameplay to a level never experienced before.

Usefulness/Novelty: 5
First, lets talk about usefullness. Have you ever experienced during gameplay, the units are pretty limited, and you though having a lot of resources, still get defeated by the enemy? Stuck in the counter triangle (rock-paper-scissor)? Then this is the perfect mod for you. Ever heard of packing buildings for raider civs? Ever thought to train heroes from history and build sea buildings? Well, this mod adds over 80 units and a new age too! Well, now battles, both on land and sea are enhanced too. New scouts with enhanced powers have been introduced for each civ too! I realize I am giving away features of the mod, I am going to stop here, to give you a scope to discover features.

Quality/Instructions: 5
The quality is top-class, almost professional, a total 5/5. It includes new architecture for Iberic civs. Now, you can also see advanced unit stats. New unit graphics, advanced AIs capable of handling hundreds of these units, have been packed in too, thus making gameplay much more better. It is a semi-conversion mod, unlike TOME and Age of Chivalry, and it brings in new options of play to those civs you already know. No point talking about imbalances, you cant even spot them due to the wide array of units.

Additional Comments:
Just download it if you want to be AoEcrazy. This is a mod totally devoted to AoE2 lovers and a perfect example of a well composed mod, considering the author did nearly all the work himself. Directly one of the best mods ever played in my life.Pro players though, be cautioned as this mod may unnerve you.
