4 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Awesome games, both classics and a must have for any RTS player. I've played both of these games on and off for years and It still entertains me more than 99% of games released these days.

These games pretty much run on any version of Windows, I've gotten them to work on XP, Vista, and W7 without a hitch, and If you were still on W98 or 2000 it would too I'm sure. They are one of the few games that is still compatible with everything over the ages which is really awesome.

Cons: The Jewel case is really flimsy and as with some other people, mine came broken too. Fortunately the CD's weren't damaged or scratched at all, but there were plastic bits floating around in the case and this could cause some damage if you get unlucky, I took an egg off for that.

And note: Age of Empires 1 only goes up to 1080x768 resolution, and Age of Empires 2 goes up to 1280x1024. Naturally, you'd expect this because of their age, and it isn't a con unless you have a wide screen monitor, because the game will look stretched out and it can be annoying to look at.

Other Thoughts: For 10 bucks, don't miss out! Awesome deal.

5 out of 5 eggswhat!!! ten bucks

Pros: 3 cd's with 4 versions to play for what... ten bucks. Starting with cd 1 was like stepping backwards into a tech black hole, full of laughs and fun. I remember when these where kind of new and not kowing enough about computers to know if I had what was required to play the cd's, seemed like you needed a nasa space computer to run them way back then. Well I still had the same problem with this ten dollar version not listed for Vista. But this time its all the games for $10 instead of well over a 100 so no problem taking a chance. Plays great on Vista with a screen resolution problem ''sometimes''...see cons... and I think this will play on the simplest of machines and any OS.

Cons: When first starting or changing between screen resoutions, useing with Vista, sometimes the game starts like the resolution is wrong. But this can be played like that and is fixed by switching between resolutions. Simply switch back and forth between lower and higher resolution in game options until picture is clear, usually two or three times will do, or just play in funky color. Is simple to do right from the play screen so don't let this stop you. No eggs off for this because who knows it might be my video card!

Other Thoughts: more more more more old games up to date would be great!

1 out of 5 eggsLooks like a cool game...

Pros: The game looks really great and when it worked, we really enjoyed it.

Cons: For some reason I couldn't get the program to work for more than one or two play sessions. After reinstalling it 5, (6?) times, adding updates etc. I couldn't get it to work. I suppose there can be some bad disks out there. Currently it either stops at the initial loading page or gets to the play icon and crashes.

Other Thoughts: I still prefer new egg and I still hope to get a disk for this game that works at some point. The game looks great.

5 out of 5 eggs10 bucks!

Pros: Everything. This game is one of the original classics. I would put it down to play other games but when I came back to it it was always fun. Should play on almost any system people are using today. I dont have the money to plug into my rig right now to play the newest, so it will be fun picking this up again.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsRTS done well

Pros: Classic, even legendary, RTS mechanics and graphics any computer can handle. This game is still one of the standards in RTS design.

Cons: very limited multiplayer options (LAN, TCP/IP), no online server. Computer opponent's AI sometimes startlingly stupid.

Other Thoughts: If you consider yourself an RTS fan and don't own these games, slap yourself.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Game Series of the 1990s

Pros: Endless hours of strategy gaming that fueled graphic engines to reach new heights.

Cons: No online gathering portal

Other Thoughts: The Age of Empires Collector's edition is a set no true strategy gamer should be without. Never seen it under $30 until now.
