Summary: This game is only supported by windows XP. we had an old computer with windows 2000, but couldn't even play it on that. Great game, but waste of money unless you have an ancient windows system
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 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: 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: 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: 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: 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! (not)
