This was the worst PC gaming experience I've had in a long time. I have owned every previous version of Age of Empires that there is. One of the favorite nightly activities of my wife and I, is to play Age of Empires 2 until we pass out. I downloaded Age of Empires online (which took ALL DAY I might add) because it looks great and was supposedly FREE TO PLAY. So I log in, create an XBox Live account and everything. Next I'm being told to enter a product key before I can continue... What happened to it being free to play? Your front page is telling me things like "Click on Join LIVE to play!" and there's no "Join LIVE" button anywhere. I would expect this sort of thing from maybe Nexon or some other freeware company but not Microsoft.
