    Running a 14 year old game (prisoner of war)

    Hey guys, so today I decided to get Prisoner of War once again, I think its one of the best games ever created (well if no the only one in that ganre).

    Anyway, I've tried running it but even with changing the compability settings it wouldnt run... Anyone ever tried running this game on Windows 10? if so, how did you do it.

    PS: If you know any prison escaping games similiar to this let me know please

    Hi Twinki and welcome to Ten Forums :)

    You could load Windows XP into VM (XP started in the year 2001) it may run the 14 year old game.

    I remember this game, i had it on the first X-box, it was one of the first games i had.
    I don't think i ever finished it, but it was a fun game. I would enjoy it more at the age i'm at now, than i did back then i believe.

    As suggested, try loading it in a VM (if your rig is up to the task that is).
