1.0 out of 5 stars
fantastic game, lousy edition, 11 Mar. 2013
first: the game itself, which I have owned and thoroughly enjoyed for many, many years, is fantastic.
but: this gold edition is more or less useless. It is impossible to start and play the campaign game with this gold edition, as soon as you try to start a campaign - any campaign - the game immediately crashes. this is on both XP, which it is made for, and Vista and Windows 7, which I didnt expect it to work on.
it is possible to play custom and historic battles with this gold edition, but that is a meagre comfort when the grand campaign itself for some reason is not playable.
