Summary: As an AOE Fan I had no idea I had to install 3rd party Steam for this until warnings by reviewers. That would be fine....IF it were necessary. But it isn't. And they make it necessary. I tried to play the game--MY game--one I have spent $100 or more through iterations to have.
Summary: My grandson asked for this game series for Christmas, but was disappointed that he couldn't down load it on his computer. He tried to load on my PC and my Mac and it didn't work on either. He is hoping it will work on his other PC.
Summary: I foolishly purchased this assuming that since my computer had successfully played the old AoE II and the AoE II HD trial version, that it should be able to run the full AoE II HD game. I was wrong. The game would never fully load, making it unplayable.
Summary: This is the same game as before. I really liked AoE II back in the day. I was hoping for a few UI tweaks to make it more like the games that have come out since, but it's the exact same game with marginally better graphics. It's fine and fun, but purchase with modest expectations.
Summary: For all that I've heard this is an excellent game, I can't say for myself because it won't work. Microsoft says it is compatible with 7 but I messed around and searched the web for fixes and I still haven't gotten it going.
Summary: This is an "old" game compared to current games. It is a bit slow and the features are pretty simple. Graphics don't compare to todays versions. Still it was kind of fun. Each level has a "trick" and once you figure out the trick you can win the round. Delivery was great.
Summary: I got this game in Dec 1997 and for months me and my best friend did nothing but play it. At the time it seemed so cool and interesting. Today, it seems dated and dull. Weird isn't it? I have AOE2 and it is much better but that too already seems old hat.
