Summary: Bought this for my son at Costco. Tried installing it on 3 different PCs, each of which exceeded the minimum recommended settings by far. In all three, the program installed without a hitch and would not run. I then tried contacting tech support and relaying the detailed diagnostic log information. They were less than helpful and suggested "fixes" that broke compatability with other programs - and still did not work.
Summary: I installed Majestic Chess on two computers--one running Windows 2000, the other running Windows 98SE (FAT32), and Windows 2000 (NTFS). The hardware on both machines is up to speed. The installs (including two on the dual-booter) went smoothly, however, the chess games won't run at all. But the Hoyle demo games will.
Summary: First of all this is a nice game I think great idea, cool music and spooky graphics thats why i bought it just cause it looks nice and the adventure of course. If you need a program for analysis and study this is not for you then Chessmaster or Fritz is a much better choice- in fact this program doesnt even have a database its just for the fun. So its a good game i think and i would give it 4 or 5 stars BUT....
Summary: Even though my new computer exceeded the minimum requirements the program would not install and after three days when i finally got it installed it would not run. during this process the technical support folks took the following positions: 1. had me uncheck some box in windows. When this did not solve the problem they hung up. All support calls are long distance. 2.I did not have the latest firmware from the mfr of the cd rom .
Summary: Well, if you have a laptop you will most likely not be able to use this program unless you reload it each time. When I first loaded this thing it worked great, and I played several games. Once I rebooted my laptop, it would not run until I uninstalled and installed again. I called Sierra, and they said, and I quote, "Our products don't work on laptops; we don't support laptops.
Summary: This an elaborate chess title attempting to capture the imagination of players. It is probably better suited for beginner to intermediate players, but the game itself does put a spin on chess with it's adventures so to speak.
Summary: „Was ist das denn?“ War meine erstaunte, nein eigentlich entsetzte Frage, als ich dieses ‚Spiel’ zum ersten Mal auf dem Rechner eines meiner Neffen sah. „Darf ich mir das mal ausleihen?“ Also wiederum ein Bericht über ein Produkt, das ich selbst nicht besitze, dennoch ausprobiert habe und mir nun eine eigene und deswegen völlig subjektive Meinung darüber erlaube.
Summary: Es ist immer wieder erstaunlich und stellenweise ekelerregend mit welcher Unverfrorenheit, Hersteller versuchen, dem unbedarften Bürger sein sauer verdientes Geld aus der Tasche zu ziehen. Weil sie glauben, jemand, der sich mit Rechnern beschäftigt, sei blöde genug, auf jeden vermeintlichen Trend aufzuspringen?? Weil sie versuchen jedes Genre mit einem anderen verknüpfen zu müssen? Oder weil es geweihnachtet hat??
