Does not work

Summary: Very disappointed... the installation finished but the game wouldn't open or load. This game does not work on Windows 8 and that should have been communicated up front so I didn't waste my money or time.
What I recieved was a copy of the original game ...

Summary: What I recieved was a copy of the original game that wouldn't load on my computer. The original was a two disc game and I recieved only one disc. Not to mention that I had to install the company's program to attempt to load the game.
This was hot stuff in 2001 but is pretty dull today

Summary: This was hot stuff in 2001 but is pretty dull today. Very repetitive and predictable and the visuals are very 20th century. I quit playing after 10 hours which was 7 hours after I figured it out.
Summary: Very discouraged after trying to install this game onto my new Windows 8 computer -- computer froze up, shut down. Tried again -- blue screen. All my other games and software are installing and working fine, not this one. So I tried to install it onto an older Windows XP system - same problem.
Summary: If you have play Monkey Island, this is a big step back. It more like a video playing and with caption below. You go up to people but there is not much of a conversation. They just tell you what you want in one say. You cannot even tour the place. It is more worst than Monkey Island game part 1.
Summary: This is a good game but it well didn't work on my husbands computer and all and stalled (crashed) mine... So, please buy with caution!!! Along with being the second disc was corrupted or something (not recognized as part of the game...)
Summary: From the specifications, I can see that Vista wasn't an OS that this game supports, but I thought I'd try to load it anyways, given that my XP machine is pretty light on graphics power and my Vista machine has plenty.
Summary: This is not the real box version with the map and guidebook. This is just a cheap case with a disc in it. What a rip off. Says "New" and it is NOT the Factory "New" just a remake in a case that was shipped over from England. Buyer beware! I bought this by mistake thinking it was the factory one.
