    It's a fun game, but I got stuck at some point, and then stopped playing as I got new games.

    My brother introduced this game to me not too long after it came out. I was understandably a little skeptical, given that I had never heard of it, but don't let that fool you. This is an excellent game. The graphics were good for that time, but the really gold was the game play/story and the witty humor of the characters.

    Well, I don't know much about Steam's innards, but I would assume that given that Steam works on Windows 7, it will play.
