  1. Might be fun game if worked
    by Jeffrey Miller, USA - Oct 11th 2014

    Well this was a complete waste of $19, sometimes works and mostly freezes. I have a high end mac system that can handle this game. All these issues and you can't even play it.

  2. If it worked it seemed like it would be GR8

    -This game downloaded fine from steam.
    I cant play it in full screen mode or full resolution, it just keeps freezing. I was able to size it down but thats stupid since i have a 27 inch monitor and am only using 1/2 of it to play this game. The graphics are already fuzzy and not very defined even on the highest game settings, then when you size it down you cant make out what is what and i had to keep straining my eyes to even guess what i was clicking on.

    They game kept hosing itself, i would click on a menu and the term "text field" would be in place of the text that the game was suppose to show. I was actually very excited to give this game a whirl but within 5-10 minutes i was seeing it was going to be a let down and after 30-45 minutes im now givign up and saying this game is faulty. I requested a refund on this game and would say Do not buy it until these huge glitches and problems are removed.

    Sort of hard to play a game when you cant see it, cant use the full monitor, your strianing to see what units are yours, and it keeps freezing or hosing itself.
