Summary: Game locks up my computer, at times, just before checkmating my opponent. I fear it could do damage to my system, and intend to see if I can uninstall it. I tried their so-called tech support number. It is independent techs charging many times the value of the game.
Summary: 3/3/12 I could not get this game to work with Windows XP SP3 on my desktop or my laptop. I am computer savvy. To make matters worse, I searched the internet for patches or information to try to get it to operate on my desktop, but couldn't find much.
Summary: This program has the potential to be a great tool for improvement at chess, but I haven't been able to use it because it keeps blinking at me every two seconds or so, which prevents me from reading its advice.
Summary: I got this game in April 2010 and so far I have not been able to run it. I have tried it on a Toshiba XP-Home-SP2 notebook and a year old Toshiba XP-Home-SP3 laptop as well as a two year old Dell XP-Pro-SP3 WS without any success.
Summary: I had an earlier version of this game which worked fine until I scratched the CD. This copy is a great bother. First, it locked up Windows XP, repeatedly. Now the first time I start it daily, the Install & promo blip comes up. Have to shut it down and start over.
Summary: The "Create a Review" combobox did not provide a "zero" star rating or I would have picked that one. I'm in agreement with these other reviews. My wife bought this game at Christmas for our son. I'm a software engineer with a Masters degree and I could not get this game to execute.
Summary: I agree with the other reviewer - this is a worthless product. I've attempted to load on two different computers, and the software fails to initiate setup every time. My kids were pretty disappointed. Great job, Lego!
