This Game is a Work in Process To Get Even Better
Age of Empires: Definitive Edition is a remaster and updated version of the original Age of Empires PC game that came out on October 15, 1997 and the expansion pack Rise of Rome PC game that came out on October 31 1998. I thought I would warn you that in order to download and play Age of Empires: Definitive Edition you need to go to Microsoft website and set up and activate an account with Microsoft so that you have a password with Microsoft to use and activate the game’s digital code you bought. Another thing I don't like is every time you click on a selection to try to go into the Main Menu in the game your redirected to a page where Microsoft tells you about upcoming features for the game and they want to go click on the page to go over to Microsoft website. Why can't you just go straight into the selection you pick on the Main Menu instead of being redirected to another page every single time?

The movement in this game is downright stubborn, (not improved at all, worse possibly) and troop stances are temporary at best, your archers will not stand their ground, they will get themselves killed chasing after whatever. Mangonels are lethal to your own troops and again, there is no way to set them on stand down stance, as soon as they are done crushing a building, they fire on anything nearby, regardless of your own troop location, killing dozens. The scenarios are a little pedantic... I give this game a "meh."

Failed to download using Firefox browser
I use Firefox as my browser. I did everything as described to download the game. I put in my code, and hit enter. It instantly came back that it couldn't load due to Firefox. I activated Microsoft Edge to download but it failed due to a message saying This code has already been redeemed. Now I have to go through the hassle of contacting support. We all know what fun that is.

Offline population limit, will need a increase
I'm an avid lover of all version of AOE. When compared to AOE 2 and other previous versions, I feel this version is a let down. It has less options for the offline game plays, supporting population limit to 50, better to have them as 200. Can't be searching for players to be available in online all the time. So the offline population limit will need an increase and am expecting it to evolve better in the coming days.

OLDER GAMES WERE BETTER
This game is far less enjoyable than the originals. Minimal upgrades and the removal of key components like being able to purchase and sell raw materials and the inability to build gates for your walls have really diminished my desire to play this game. I would rather play the 90s versions of this game than this one. Microsoft really dropped the ball on this one.

Classic RTS is still fun!
Microsoft's "Age of Empires II" has always been the gold standard in real time strategy games. Classic "god view" looking over your 2D animated world. I am running mine on an old HP Win Vista tower but have also loaded it onto Windows 7 and Windows 10 laptops with success. A few minimal tweaks are required for smooth operation (compatibility mode) and you are off to create your world!

xp game on older lap top
works great with XP. tried all the gimmicks to get it to work on win 10 and Ubuntu. But screw that stuff, so took older laptop and loaded my old XP disc into it Bamm! Fast and easy.!!!! Keep in mind the only thing I use this laptop for is older disc XP games , no INTERNET no nothing, just a fresh disc download of XP. Amazing how fast XP works when you do not have any junk on it. no updates, no INTERNET no nothing, just the basic OS load. Try it for older games. Did have to find on line a new KEY for the XP disc. It can be done just do the search. Got mine on You tube. good luck.

Excellent RTS game & in HD!
If you played AOE before, this Definitive Edition should not be missed. Shame it is only a download code; miss the days of a physical box and manuals for collection. I chose to buy from bestbuy.com (to earn points best buy reward points as well) instead of directly from the Microsoft app store. The game runs smooth on my windows 10 and the graphics are sharp. Download and installation was a snap. Definitely worth $20 for this classic game.
