Summary: the games are still very fun just as i remembered from the past =)! blast from da past! i gave it 1/2 off cause of the whole color glitch thing, for some reason the first AOE the water is the only thing thats color glitches but in the second AOE the trees, land and water are all glitched which i thought was weird.
Summary: These games have been around for some time but they are still one of tehe better ones that Microsoft brought out. Good learning curve with plenty of variables to keep players going for a very, very long time. The game can be slow while waiting to accumulate enough resourses to advance ones ciilization but tweak teh options and that helps some.
Summary: one of the first rts games i played when i was younger and with the hd version i get quite a bit of nostalgia. there are still some bugs etc but they are still fixing some stuff in patches and there will soon be a new expansion for this game as well.
Summary: Overall, I loved this game extremely. But I got to a point where I knew exactly when to do something, that overall gave me an advantage of winning the game. Only if I got careless, would I loose.
Summary: This game is so simple compared to games made today, but it will never stop being fun. It's fun, informative, and easy to play. I loved it when it first came out and just bought it again because I lost my copy.
Summary: This is one of my all time favorite PC games. The variety of game play makes it fun for different people. Are you an aggressive conqueror? Just trying to finish this scenario as quickly as possible? Do you want to take your time building up your city and empire? Freeform games, scenarios, and campaigns are just some of your options. The scenario builder is one of my favorite features. Build custom scenarios from scratch, or modify existing maps.
Summary: This is a great deal for the Age of Empires I and II collections. I bought this for a friend and the disks worked fine on his Windows XP SP2 system and the installation was flawless. I was already a fan of the games and believe that they are among the most fun to play (with AOE II The Conqueror's Expansion ranking the best on my list).
Summary: A police officer I knew got me into this game. I didn't think much of it because it was essentially the same game design as the venerable DUNE and War Craft games. One Age of Empires, as originally designed, was never meant to be the huge slug fest that it ultimately turned into. The icons on the map were meant to be just that; icons representing single armies. But the players demanded more, and a patch was released allowing multiple units to be manifested on the map.
Summary: My grandma has this game and until recently I had never found it! When i opened it i was slightly confused, in the description they list two different games and two different expansion packs but their was only 3 CD's. upon double checking the item's page I discovered it did say only 3 discs, but it still took my about 3 minutes to figure out which CD's contained which game.
