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.
Summary: Overall it was pretty good buy. Worked on my Windows 7, if you're wondering. I didn't think it would but it did. This is a great buy for those that love the Age of Empire set. Brought back some good memories.
Summary: Great game set. Bought this one because it's the cheapest out there. Rated for WinXP, worked fine on Win7 x64 straight out of the box, no settings changes needed. Highly recommended to everyone.
Summary: This was the first computer game that I truly got into as a younger kid. I decided to buy it and play it again now that i'm older and can understand it more. Its a great game and will always be fun to play. For those of you who want to get this for a newer computer that runs something like windows 7, you will have to play around a bit to get it to run properly. I'm not going to lie, its somewhat of a pain to figure it out.
