Summary: Will not install on my Windows System. Called a computer professional in (at $100/hour) and he could not install it. Checked all Help Lines and consumer advice columns -- nothing. Might as well use it as a coaster! Will not be buying any other editions of this game! Very disappointed 11 year-old!
Summary: I download games all the time and have reasonable expectations. Not only did this game take forever to download but when it finally did, it NEVER worked. It slowed down my entire system then my pc kept crashing and freezing up. I had to uninstall, which by the way was no easy task. There was no way to get a refund or any support. This was a complete waste of money and time. Do not buy.
Summary: I was finally able to run the game in a stable mode thanks to some advice I found online by Captain Jack Gumption on YouTube. I can take neither credit nor responsibility for the Captain's clever fix for Windows 7 OS by increasing video memory. Shogun II has run without a hiccup for a few thousand turns at this point.
Makes you update your "BIOS" (which should never be a solution)
4 December 2013
Summary: When I purchased this game, I downloaded it and till this day have not been able to play it. Very disappointed, had something to do with updating BIOS which should NEVER be a solution to fixing a computer game.
Summary: There was a mix up by Amazon when they issued me 2 store cards with different acct. # . By the time they got it fixed I still had not received the 2 items that I paid for. Now when I look at my "orders list" it says they delivered the 2 items on the 23rd of this month. I did receive a package from Amazon on that day with only my name on the outside, no paper work inside and 3 sets of pot-holders. I wonder if I will ever get what I paid for?
Summary: This software is already out dated. You can buy it and it will run but if you intend to play against other gamers over the net, you'll have to buy additional content. Let me rephrase, you won't HAVE to buy it but if you don't you'll be pitted against those that have paid extra and they will stomp you with their paid-for superior units. You read it right. Pay up or play at a disadvantage. This is extortion and Creative Arts should be ashamed.
