This is a very old game (circa 2004) which does not run straight out of the box and crashes with kernel errors if the game patch is applied to bring it up to v1.2 or v1.3. Straight from the box, the game appears to start and then crashes to desktop while still running in the task bar. Task Manager is required to kill the game. Once the official patch is applied to bring the game up to version 1.2 there are multiple errors claiming that various Windows components are missing and then I am required to place the correct disc in the drive. The DVD is in my only optical drive and appears perfectly in Windows Explorer. Patching to version 1.3 gives me the dreaded kernel error. This has plagued hundreds of people and the publisher and author have failed to even acknowledge an error, much less attempt a fix.
Do not buy unless you still have Windows 95/98!
