I'm am trying to play age of mythology and after the movie ends, error appears and states "initialization failed".

Initialization failed

This means that the game is attempting to initialize hardware such as the video card but has failed

This can be caused by a number of factors.

1. Your hardware does not meet the games hardware requirements
2. Your hardware requires farther configuration to run the game properly

if you are certan that the game supports your hardware you may need to perform
some extra steps to get your game working

"Failed to initialize" is an incomplete error message because it does not tell you what exactly failed
a more complete error message would read "Failed to initialize the video subsystem" and then it would give an error code such as Error Code xxx telling you exactly what error code to look up
to determine what exactly failed.

Most of the time when a game says ( failed to initialize ) that means a video issue
this may mean missing files or wrong versions of files or incompatable hardware.

what is telling me that the hardware is not comparable with you pc.
go to the vendors' web site download the driver and the application software.
open the pc and re seat the PCI card or relocate it to a different slot. install the software.
if it still come up as "fail to initialize hardware" then you need to located the "older" driver for the PCI card.
make sure you un-install what ever software you don't need. there will conflict if you don't
