Summary: My 6 year old boy had no problem installing and playing this game. I don't know what went wrong with the other reviewers' computers, but you do have to have a DVD ROM and a decent video card (Requires ATi Radeon X800 128mb RAM or NVDIA GeForce 6600, so that may be part of it.
Summary: It would be a lot of fun if we could play it. But it's not compative with our computer programs Windows XP or Windows Vista. The software is too new for the game. It arrived in great condition and my son was so excited to have it but it's too slow for the software. sad.
Another Sucker, but this time an innocent child lost $$

Summary: My son just went through two brain surgeries and we were in the hospital for 5 weeks. One of his grandparent's friend's gave him a gift card for Amazon.com and he was soooooo excited about buying his own games for his computer.
Summary: This game was a hit with my seven year old son. The tutorials were fine and the levels were varied enough. You play any of three monsters depending on the level. One of the better movie adaptations. Pros: Good design, no hiccups on XP, nice tutorials Cons: Tricky keyboard shortcuts.
Summary: Everyone enjoyed it!!!! Make sure to have a good gamer PC, or it might tax your system. All PC games are like this.
Pros: Bought it for niece and nephew: Installed perfectly on Vista x64 gamer machine. Had to tweak graphic card settings for best image quality. Wasn't too complex for them to understand controls. They loved mutilating my keyboard and game-pad. They enjoyed it so much, they beg to use my PC over game c...
Cons: I ended up playing it!!! And enjoyed it! Well, somewhat... It does get repetitive, but it even proved a wee challenge for an old-school gamer like myself. (I can't believe I just said that) Then again, I grew up on old Sierra games and FPSers.
Summary: I just want everyone to be aware that I think you need an upgrade on your computer, i.e. a gaming card which will cost $200.00. Tech support said we had a graphic corruption; whatever that is. Anyways, I assumed it would just be like Wall-E PC game which we adore.
