Summary: These games are older titles, so it shouldn't come as much of a surprise to learn they don't really run on newer systems, at least without a lot of fiddling. Unfortunately none of the games in this set are interesting enough to warrant the time and effort it takes to actually get them running.
Summary: I purchased this product last year, but wasn't able to install it until this year, when I did it didn't even play. It installed fine, but it locks up and won't get beyond the first scene in the case. NOT HAPPY WITH THIS. A WASTE OF MY MONEY AND TIME.
Summary: I purchased Law & Order Justice is Served on a whim. I saw it on a shelf in a store while looking for an I-Pod. Since I am a big L&O fan, it struck me as interesting. It took me about 3 weeks before I had time to open it and play the game and it was so much fun. Since it was during the Christmas holidays, my sons were home from college and we played this game for hours. We stopped only to eat and open gifts and then we would go back to playing the game.
Summary: I bought this set based on watching a friend play the first title, Dead On The Money, several years ago. He was using Win-98 but this game can work on XP and even Vista; what helps alot is installing the latest version of Java with VM from Sun's site. I also used compatibility mode on the setup programs and set them to XP SP2. The games seem to work flawlessly now.
Summary: Am a microsoft certified specialist. My computer exeeds recommended requirements. I'll be dipped if I can get this to run!! Game not only chokes and freezes, but it changes my desk top settings with each attempt (real pain). "Read Me" and UBI Support (oxymoron) NO help... Would be better entertained taking $$ paid for this set out back, setting it on fire, and watching the flames!!! BUYER BEWARE!!!
Summary: The game and its stories are excellent. I usually prefer games based on solving crimes. One big goof-up in the game that is inexcusable, considering that the Law and Order show itself is made with extreme care - the witnesses come to court in plain clothes and leather jackets. Everyone who comes to court must be in suits. This is a major goof-up, as far as I am concerned. I am a big L&O show fan.
Summary: Love the show and love the game. I find it to be fun and challenging. I have had to use walkthroughs ([...] figure somethings out but overall, it rocks. I love being the detective and going to trail. It has to be a little difficult or it would not be fun. It is just like the show right down to the wise cracks. As for the computer requirements it says on the box Windows XP only. When buying computer games you really have to be careful and read the requirements carefully!
