4.0 out of 5 stars Legendary games, nice price., 22 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Age of Empires -Collectors Edition (DVD-ROM)
The games are fantastic and I could praise them all day, but considering this is such an old game it was more about this specific edition. It's good, contains all the games on one dvd.

There are a few problems, but these are mostly because of the games: you may (more than likely) have colour issues with these games on Windows 7. There are some ways to fix this, and google is your friend, generally, but these only applied to Age of Empires II in my case. The other one is the music, unfortunately it does not play in the background with Age of Empires II (AoE1 seems to work fine), because of the way it used to play the music streaming from the disc being outdated.

To fix this and the colour issues in one step, I suggest everyone downloads the Forgotten Empires fan expansion to Age of Empires II: The Conquerors. It will both improve the games resolution and fix the Windows 7 colour problems. You can also use a playlist function in the Forgotten Empires, which allows you to make a .m3u playlist and that will stream the music during play! I highly recommend doing this, you can find the latest installer at:[...]
So for unfortunately not fixing the colour/music issues for me, I'll give this edition a 4/5, because it does include a compilation soundtrack with 20 of the tracks from the games (not all of them), which can help when you make your playlist, and is a pretty nice extra.

Glad I finally got another copy of these games! I never actually owned Age of Empires I, but I lost my Age of Kings/Conquerors discs.
