    Cons

    Page after page of CRAPWARE with the DECLINE button grayed outed as if in operatable.

    "Works great - for 45 Minutes..."

    March 17, 2014  |   By RFlagg78

    Version: Risk II

    Pros

    I have Win7 Pro N (not sure how I ended up with that!) and everything worked exactly as I remembered.

    Cons

    This is a time trial. Game dies after 45 mintues - and has no save option. So If you need to scratch the itch; get comfortable. Even tho I have the CD from yester-year, I cannot get XP mode working on my computer (I suspect that it's because of the N version), I'd be willing to pay the $20 to buy the game again; but the link says that there's no internet connection (HA!) I then tried going to the site directly but didn't see any mention of Risk 2.

    Summary

    If you want to play for just 45 minutes - awesome. But thats the end of it. Hasbro or ____ needs to step up and release a new version for the masses.

    "A Way to Make Risk 2 Work in Windows 7"

    July 8, 2013  |   By NASA-Sax

    Version: Risk II

    Pros

    The game works great ... once you solve the compatibility problem (see below).

    Cons

    The game developers are no longer in business so they are unavailable to work compatibility issues with newer Windows operating systems. I almost gave up but accidentally found a solution (see below).

    Summary

    Like so many others, I have been disappointed that I was unable to run Risk 2 on my laptop under Windows 7. Although I tried to use most of the various reported "fixes" suggested online (e.g., using "-noavi" or run in Administrator Mode), none of them worked for me.

    Serendipitously, I had an auxiliary monitor hooked-up to my laptop for another reason and happened to try Risk 2 again. IT WORKED! Just as it should! I experimented a bit, but it boiled down to having the system see a second monitor. Not wanting to haul around a second monitor with my laptop just to play Risk 2, I did a quick Internet search to see if I could build a "faux monitor" plug that would make the laptop think that it had a second monitor connected. One such site is
    http://www.overclockers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=666716.

    For less than $5 and about 30 minutes of work, I built a small plug (1.5 inches/4 cm long) that I can attach to my laptop whenever I want to play Risk 2. Problem solved! (I suspect that others can explain why this works -- all I care is that it does.)

    "Love the game but support horrible"

    January 5, 2013  |   By Stop_Spamming

    Version: Risk II

    Pros

    Brilliant graphics bringing the spirit of the boared game to the PC

    Cons

    No automatic function makes longer games unmanageable. Audio effects monotonous after a while.
    Can't connect to registration database in Vista or W7. I paid and can't activate. Support is unable/unwilling to help. No updates pending for this old game.

    Summary

    Brilliant game which is no longer supported and has activation problems in more modern PC environments. Suggest wait for the release to Public Domain.
