Summary: While this game is very fun and I used to play it with friends back when it came out I was appalled by the price on Steam and here on Amazon. This game has been out for 6 years and yet Steam wants $40 for it and you are forced to buy all the DLCs. You are basically getting ripped off if you pay these outrageous prices. If you have $40 to spend on a game you might want to spend it on something newer.
Summary: Call me old fashioned, but I like the original AOE much better than this version. I can't stand the graphics and the way the screen moves around. It feels like you are looking at everything at an angle. I'm sure the gameplay is good, I just don't like the graphics. I will be selling this back on Amazon shortly. Honestly gave this 20 mins of play, so maybe not the most thourough of ratings.
Summary: Hi I was very unhappy when i got my game. I received discs two and three, and got disc one for, drum roll please, Empire Earth. I can't even use the games, as i do not have the codes for empire earth and the first disc for AOE 3.
Won't run on Windows 7, 64 bit (despite claims to the contrary)

Summary: Don't buy this if you use Windows 7. The packaging says operating system "Windows XP or higher". This is a lie. It doesn't work on Windows 7. Don't trust this company. They also will not refund your money despite their misleading claims. I'm very disappointed.
Summary: Great game and everything I've come to expect from a good RTS...with one problem. Everytime you're attacked off screen, a trumpet call sounds. It almost sounds like you're getting a text message. Well this game is basically one big battle, so the trumpet call goes off about once every five or six seconds on average. Now imagine a level that takes you forty minutes to complete.
Summary: I should have learned my lesson after Age of Mythology, the developers of this game have decided that they want style over substance. According to them, they had one guy whose sole job in making the game, was to design the water to look super realistic. My question to them is... who gives a s@#& about the water and the birds flying overhead and the trees that sway in the background?
Summary: My hw is overkill for the game. It seemed to install just fine. And then it just wouldn't run. Click on the icon and nothing happened. There was no help anywhere for it. I checked all the "fixes" online and nothing worked. I've worked for VAR's troubleshooting PC's for a living and I couldn't get it to run. I'd give it 0 stars if I could.
