The product is a good one which I regularly use. However, this edition is plain in that the shortcuts on the main screen are in black and white. The previous one used lots of color. It is an appearence issue only. The other item is the fact there is no apparent 'Update' link for any changes.
I had the Megadatabase but found the opening encyclopedia to be of more use. The opening encyclopedia has all the commentary games that the Megadatabase has with much more useful information (if you don't have Chessbase). The number of commentaries is outstanding. The CBM theory analysis is excellent advice for the lower ranked player. The surveys are very informative. I think the only weakness that this package has is: It gives the number of openings but you don't really see which move is the quality move in relation to the PowerBook. With the PowerBook you get the specific quality move in a certain instance. You get more of a quantity number rather than a quality number in comparison to the PowerBook. However that's only a minor negative in comparison to the fun features this Opening Encyclopedia has. Definitely go with the 2013 version as they keep improving year after year.
