Summary: I'm not sure if this game was a washout b/c it's software is incompatible w/ my Toshiba gaming computer, or what, but it just wouldn't work! Then, I couldn't get the sound of rain off of my computer until I uninstalled the download! Bad, bad, buy.
Summary: I own a Compaq desktop, model 5686, & a HP Pavillion laptop, model ze5170. Both have Windows XP. I tried installing the game from 3 different CD Rom drives, 1 of which was my CD burner and the other a DVD/CD drive. None of them worked. The disk kept getting stuck on the Maps/Mission_10.wot file. I may have just gotten a dud, but I wouldn't try buying this game again unless I knew for sure that it worked on at least one computer that I own.
Summary: I think I got this as a Christmas or birthday present, anyway while they were giving directions, the game bugged and it was telling me to do a standing blast of magic or something, and my character started moving forward and it wouldn't stop. It sounds like my problem was unique, but even without this bug, I wasn't too impressed by this game.
Summary: This game utterly failed in the market for good reason. The graphics and sound are fine, but the gameplay completely sucks. Basically, there are three aspects of it that monopolize the entire Wheel of Time gaming experience: 1) Trying to select the right spell you want, by spinning your mousewheel or tapping a key over and over like a moron, usually while in combat and under fire. The game has 39 spells btw. Let me type that again: 39.
Summary: I have read lots about this game. Looked endlessly for it the various software/retail outlets I have frequented in several major cities. After much looking around I finally ordered from here. As I was eagerly anticipating the arrival of the game, I immediately opened and loaded it onto my hard drive. Graphics--A, very nice actually, coming from Diablo/Hellfire/Diablo 2, a nice step up.
Summary: I have been reading through the books and when I found out that a game was to be released I was very excited. When I got the game however I was extremely dissappointed to find out that, with all the complexity of Jordan's world, the best they could come up with was a 1st person shooter. The books are so intricate and complex, and yet with this game there is no character interaction, nothing to figure out. On top of all this, the music was terrible.
