Summary: Crazy Machines 2 I have a very intelligent 9 year old daughter that loves putting things together so I thought this would be a great next step. I found it challenging even when I was helping. I would not recommend it unless the parent has a few hours do sit there and do it with the child. This is a child who flew through several other learning games and also programs my blackberry so I was surprised to find this to be as difficult as it was.
Good and Bad all in one - NO SUPPORT FROM VIVA MEDIA

Summary: The good is the great graphics and challenging game play along with the ability to download other peoples creations. I like the zoom feature, but I've tried two different mice and neither will tilt or rotate. Not a big deal since that feature is not really required/useful. One thing with prior versions...if you were plugging in multiple electric cords (or other multiples), when you picked one, you automatically had another...
Summary: Be sure to check the hardware required for this game. It is a real gamers game and needs an expensive graphics card to play properly. The game looks great if you had the right card in to play.
Summary: The game doesn't have a serial number with it! When i went to install it it ask for the serial number, but it is no where to be found :( the paper inside says the serial number can be found in the manual, and that the manual can be printed off once the game is installed..... what the hell!?
Summary: I would think twice (thrice?) about buying this product. I read the negative reviews about how it might not run on my pc, but having two reasonably new and well spec'ed laptops, I figured I could give it a shot. It simply won't run on one of them and the other laptop, with 2gb of memory and on which I can run World of Warcraft at high res with few problems, can only simply load the game, not really play it.
