I have listed the requirements above as a warning to potential players. You can see my PC's stats in the bold red type. It seems to match up okay but even so it appears, from my experiences, that my computer isn't good enough spec to run Pandora.

I can play it in phases. This is frustrating and annoying. But it isn't a program/game fault, it is mine because although my PC is only about 3 years old and was the highest spec I could afford at the time, it doesn't meet the minimum requirements for Pandora.

For me at the moment playing Pandora is a few minutes at a time, very enjoyable minutes, and whenever possible I have taken screenies. I am hoping that there is a work around to allow me to play without having to purchase a new computer - if there is I will review the game later.

For now let me say that Pandora: Chains of Chaos looks to be a good, fun and exciting adventure. Pandora herself is a young girl with a remarkable umbrella artefact. She can brandish this in many ways, like a weapon, like a parachute, like a shield - in fact it has the power of the 12 Olympian Gods,, including Zeus, which is great because many of the encounters are with mythological beasts and demons.

Pandora lives in a quiet fishing village but she has inadvertently let a mighty Chaos into the world."Pandora! Don't open the box" Oh! Too Late!
Luckily there is video proof of this (sort of) click here please.

A single player game (which doesn't mean you cannot play it if you are married, but it may mean (if you really get into it) that you might not remain married) with real-time combat and a wonderful, colourful, anciently inspirational environment throughout.

If I could afford it I would upgrade my PC just so I could play it - "Dear Santa ........"

So as I said, I cannot truly review it because it is too difficult for me to play for any more than a minute or two at a time, but you can see how good it looks from the screenshots I have published here and the video on YouTube.
