Summary: Okay, I let my son buy this with money that he saved, DESPITE the poor reviews on Amazon. This game has a serious problem - it only works with a SELECT FEW graphics cards. (It requires something called pixel shader v1.1 - and don't think the fact that your card supports pixel shader v2.0 or 4.0...
Summary: I recieved this game for Christmas and was very disappointed when I found out it wouldn't work on my Windows XP Dell. I have the wrong video card. A LOT OF PEOPLE WILL HAVE THE WRONG CARD, FIND OUT IF YOU CAN PLAY THIS GAME ON YOUR COMPUTER BEFORE YOU BUY!!!
Summary: I am gaming junkie. I bought and installed about 25 PC games this year. I bought this game and encountered an installation error, which after some research appears to be a common problem. Never mind that my PC met all the performance specs.
Summary: Another defective game and another disappointed child. We tried for a long time to install it and when we saw Disk 1, we thought a second disk had been lost in the Christmas wrappings. Glad to find out we weren't the only ones and that a replacement disk will be available.
Summary: Amazon should have known it was selling a defective product and pulled it a long time ago. There really is no excuse as Amazon is all about up-to-the-second information processing. The installation is a joke in and of itself...
Summary: There is a problem with the software instalation and I would definitely not recommend buying this software. Tried calling Eidos support line but only was only able to get the company directory. I am very angry about the time and effort spent trying to install this software on Xmas.
Summary: I like several others had the problem where after installing it, the program said "wrong disk inserted". My son had played the demo first on this computer so it appears that our hardware meets the requirements. In all my years of buying games, I have never seen such a screw up like this.
Summary: My wife really wanted this game. After viewing the hardware requirements on the box and verifying that it appeared to be able to run on at least one of my PC's I went ahead and ordered it. Well, it won't run on any of my PC's since the hardware requirements are VERY specific.
Summary: I bought this for my son but it wouldnt load as we didnt have the correct graphic card that supports pixal shader. It didnt state this when I purchased the game unfortunately! Make sure you check you have the correct software!
