I bought AOE II: DE last night and downloaded the game. I clicked the Play button and the game did not load. After a few seconds, the Play button reappeared. I clicked the Play button again and I got the same results.
Try verifying integrity of game files
Right click the game in the library -> properties -> local files -> verify integrity
