Great game! However, buyer Beware!
on January 23, 2010
I used to play Age of Mythology all the time. Then with the addition of the Titans expansion a great game became even better! Unfortunately I lost/inadvertently tossed out those game disks long ago. With an ever present desire to play them again i purchased this disk set from amazon. About $25 bucks after shipping for aom plus "Bonus Titans expansion!" was a small price to pay for the hours of fun I knew I would be enjoying later. Once the package arrived i excitedly installed, started the game, scrolled past the campaigns and single maps that i had played to completion many times before,all the way down to multiplayer mode and tried logging into Ensemble Studios Online(ESO).Happily leaning back,about to sink into the world of widgets and hoplites, a window popped up that read "YOUR CD KEY CANNOT CURRENTLY BE VALIDATED" I was crushed! after a little research i was very angry to find that microsoft had sold the rights to aom to other companies and that those companies (i.e. valusoft,...)had been stamping all age of mythology games and titans expansions with THE SAME CD KEY!that way only ONE person that bought these identical sets at a time gets to play online! Ridiculous! Online was the most fun part! now i dont know where along the process that was overlooked but WOW. So unless you absolutely never want to play online, or you want to wrestle with the company that sold you the game for a unique cd key, then >>>>>DO NOT BUY<<< this set
