Age of Empires is an epic real-time strategy game spanning 10,000 years, in which players are the guiding spirit in the evolution of small stone age tribes. Starting with minimal resources, players are challenged to build their tribes into great civilizations.Gamers can choose from one of several ways to win the game, including: world domination by conquering enemy civilizations, exploration of the known world and economic victory through the accumulation of wealth. Age of Empires was developed by Ensemble Studios and features the expertise of Bruce Shelley, co-designer of the hit strategy game Civilization.

First off, for those of you who don't know, this is not Age of Empires. This is Age of Empires: The Rise of Rome, the expansion pack... not the original. Oh, and this was not released Oct 14th 1997, the original was released Oct 15th 1997 in North America, this one was released Oct 31 1998. I added the original, Age of Empires on here, it's waiting to be accepted.

Man, they sure know how to make games. We may be waiting for AoE4 but they never ever skip on the music, AoE1 had the best in my opinion, anyone else have a fave AoE game's music? if so then theres one reason to go play this game tight now.
