    video requirements

    I believe that in order to play the game you must have either an NVIDIA(R) GeForce2(TM) or ATI(R) Radeon(TM) 7500, or a very close compatible or more recent chipset with a DirectX(R) 9-compatible driver.... The game plays on my desktop unit but not on my laptop which has an SIS video system...

    hope this helps
