I'd like to get this, but it looks like it won't work with Windows 7, at least per their description.

It's a must-play for anyone who hasn't. But I can't imagine trying to use a keyboard, and I don't think it has gamepad support.

Will it work in Vista machines? Seems it doesn't work in Vista or Windows 7 :(

I felt this game worked fantastic with keyboard and mouse. It gave much better control of the camera, which in turn helped with movement. I remember gamespot praising it because it was a true multiplatform game that felt natural on each platform it was on. There's a demo out there you can try if anyone is still worried.

Wow, if I didn't already own this, I'd grab it. I've only played a little ways through it, but so far it seems great - the gameplay, the story, the overall atmosphere... It's definitely worth $1 for anyone who hasn't tried it.
And I know the Steam version runs on Vista (at least I have it running). Not sure if there's any differences between it and the D2D one.

I've beat it on GameCube about 5 years ago.. for some reason I doubt this game really stands up to current games, if I remember correctly it was really repetitive.

Sands of Time was probably one of my favorite games from last gen -- such a well-crafted puzzle-platformer, tons of charm in characterization and interaction, a great gameplay hook with rewinding time, and a short, sweet, all-killer-no-filler (well, almost no filler -- combat is a little flimsy) experience. It's a fairly brief game, but if you haven't experienced it yet, it's the best freaking dollar you'll spend all year.

Best game in series...honestly. Combat was pretty bland, but everything else was great.

This is an excellent deal. This game comes highly recommended, especially for those new to the series.

How long will this deal be available?

...That's quite a roundabout way of fixing something that shouldn't have been broken in the first place.

I played the first and third on xbox (I was about to play the second when my brother let a friend "borrow" them). I am probably going to buy the set on Amazon eventually, but I would prefer if they did a re-release like they did with God of War http://www.amazon.co...uct/B001LKM0EW/

They are good games and have a little bit of replay value. I am hoping the most recent release: The Forgotten Sands is similar.

I'm using a wired 360 controller and seem to have no problems without having to do anything. maybe a little issue with sensitivity. but everything else seemed fine in the few mins I messed with it.
Win 7 64 bit by the way.

But do the triggers work? You don't need to use them until quite a ways into the game.

Wasn't this given away a couple of years ago? I seem to remember getting a free (LEGAL!) download of it.
