Summary: Pretty excited to play this game again, used to have it but it got scratched up from so much use. It's a little pricey but I love this game so it's worth the money. Got to me faster than expected too, 5 stars for me!
Summary: I love the AoE series, I grew up playing it as a little girl. Now I'm an adult and I still love to play it. It's even better now that I have a better understanding and appreciation for history. I run this game on a 64 bit Windows 7 machine. Works great!
single disc really easy to install (doesn't work with alienware computers)

Summary: I have been a huge fan of the series, the first one works without a hiccup on modern systems The second game has some issues. But thankfully some cool dudes made a totally safe patch for it. Its called forgotten empires, it adds a lot of stuff, allows players to pick more screen resolutions, and fixes issues such as automatic screen panning, and color issues. The online play also works still. although it is hosted by a third party, which is also safe for use.
Summary: After reading all the reviews about problems with later versions of Windows, I was worried this wouldn't work on my new computer. No problems at all. Loaded right up and runs perfectly. No issues with color or anything else.
