The units from Age of Empires: The Age of Kings are very similar to the ones in the PC version of this game. However, some are absent, including all naval units except the ships that transfer units, which are out of the players control, and other various units. Some were added as well. Also many of the unique units from civilizations not featured in the DS version became mercenaries that all of the five civilizations can use.
