Fun but concerned,
This review is from: Age of Empires -Collectors Edition (DVD-ROM)
I am the type of game player who likes to play the old type of game as they prove to me more fun and interesting then today's game, you got C&C4 coming out no doubt more graphics galore and probably even more shortened game play experience but if you go back to the days when tiberiun sun and AOE was king there is no comparison, no overly hyped GUI and sprites, just a simple game with no fuss and you could play as long as you like and the difficulty rating is what you make it out to be. the good old days will remain within this collectors edition for the best of AOE had to offer.
the games themselves are based on different timelines when wooden weapons, metal weapons and shields were common place, from 5000 BC to 1600 AD in all four games.
what i am concerned with is the disk itself and to be honest when it starts up these strange noises come out of the drive with a steady stream of vibrations on load up, i am afraid to push the disk into read mode too much incase the disk shatters in my dvd drive it's just how much im concerned. it's specific to this disk only as none of the others have shown this before.
