Summary: Could not get it to work, even though I did everything other posters recommended and everything suggested I could find online, Updated every program on my PC and updated every driver and so on. The tech support wants a diagnosis, rather than a question, beyond most folks.
Summary: My son was really excited about this game but the CD wouldn't install. I spent two hours troubleshooting, looking for support online, reading forums etc looking for the answer. Looks like I wasted $10. :-(
Summary: This item never worked and we are very disappointed with this product. We cannot contract the company by phone to get tech help and they don't get back to you when you email them. I will never purchase anything by viva media again
Summary: I bought this game for my grandson. It will not run on the XP system I have for him. The graphics are so bad, you cannot see what you are doing. So I stupidly put it on MY computer. It has my VISTA computer moving so slow, I couldn't bring Windows up without a system restore! I tried Support.
Summary: Like many other reviewers, I got a game whose main utility will be the use of the CD as a drink coaster. It will run on only a very specific combination of operating system and hardware, which is not well publicized.
Summary: Bought this for son for Christmas. There is no CD key anywhere on the packaging or in the manual, and you need this to install the game. Plus, the game came in shady, stripped down packaging. Amazon customer support told me to contact Viva Media, the manufacturer, but so far I've gotten nowhere.
Summary: My son got this for xmas. During install it asks for a serial number. Nowhere on the box, paperwork etc, is there a serial number. Cant even istall to rate it. Poor marketting forethought. Returning it to Amazon.
Summary: We loved Crazy Machines and Crazy Machines 1.5. My son was so excited to get Crazy Machines 2. I read about the difficulties others had had and hoped I could avoid them by following all the recommendations.
