Gifted AOE3 on Amazon but cracked CD removing it from case.

I have a legit key and online receipt for AOE3 but drive will not read the disk due to cracked/broken cd. I have windows 10 and a pretty op pc. Is there a way to download it and then enter my key. I also tried through Steam which I would rather do but no luck with new key. Any help would be appreciated.

    There is no "legal" way I know of to install the game without the original cds. And if there were any not so legal way, it's against the TOS of this website. Sorry, but if you want to have a legitimate copy of the game you will have to buy it again.

    Contact Amazon support. They may be able to give you a refund.

    You disagree with my suggestion? Just trying to help, @Prnwolf. If I received a broken product in the mail from a store, I would be asking for a refund.

    @rhrmn I thought he broke the cd himself? "Gifted AOE3 on Amazon but cracked CD removing it from case."

    You're right. Well, then guess only option is to buy a new copy. One of the advantages of buying a digital copy is not having to deal with scratched or broken discs.
