11 minutes proved too much for me. It may appeal to tennis fans or 10 year old girls but....tedium ensued. Oh how I long for a quality HOG.

I completely agree! The silly 30 seconds of for mis-clicks and the pixel hunt to find the photo images.....
Not my cup of tea!

I only downloaded this because I am a big tennis fan. Not sure what I was expecting but that wasn't it LOL

I tried to like this game, but after 34 minutes of play ,
I deleted, far too many spot the difference for me personally,
other wise the game played fine, graphics were crisp & clear,
No problems at all

This game is terrible! I still had 22 minutes left on the demo and it said I would have to purchase it to play the rest. I hated taking the photos as the cursor was so sensitive you had to get it just right which was really fiddley.

The chapters flew by in a matter of mere minutes. This game would probably only last a fast gamer about an hour that I can see.

This game may be some of the fishies cup of tea, but it sure isn't mine.

Geez, I am getting pretty bored, I want an exciting, fun game. Oh well, maybe tomorrow?

I am going to heed your comments and pass on this one, but also partly because I find the topic of Venus Williams being STALKED in a computer game tacky, distasteful and just a really bad idea in general.

On a good note: Mudrock says that FINALLY Mystery Age: The Dark Priests AND the SE version of EAP: The Black Cat will be here this week. I certainly hope so, I am getting downright despondent about the recent offerings. Please, BF, give me hope!!

Spot the odd is right! I personally do not like STD's, in this case when I had completed 1 and another came straight after did it for me! As has been said, taking the pics one needs to be VERY accurate, I found this a little frustrating. Not a buy for me today.
Can someone please tell me how you get to know what is coming out on BFG? Thank you in advance

Every Monday someone named mudrock posts in the CCC about a few of the games that will be coming out during the week. I have never been successful in finding out if he is a BFG employee or not, but his posts seem pretty accurate.

To find Mudrock's posts, click on the Chit-Chat Corner tab at the top of this screen, then look at the first few sticky threads at the top of the list. He posts on Monday afternoons (usually - he has a brand-new baby in the house, so his timing could be a bit later occasionally) and his threads always start out with the date and something alliterative with his name. This week's thread is "October 4 - Mudrock's Multi Masks."

And yes, based on Mudrock's comments in his thread, where he refers to "we" when talking about BFG, I'd say he's certainly an employee.

He is with the company and my impression is since its founding. Picman jokes about him from time to time, remember last week the sale, oops no sale, oops we'll let you know when, then said blame Mudrock and his fat finger whatever that means (?) May be head of sales and promotions but don't quote me, I read a lot of articles and posts but memory is more like aged Swiss cheese. Best do your own detective work to blow his cover LOL.
His Monday inside tips about what games are coming is off occasionally, when he named Reincarnations2 way early

Thank you Sinshack for that. Great screen name by the way

I'll always give a game a trial (maybe the exeption being one that is obviously aimed at very young gamers...which I definately am not!) BUT...although I tried my best to find something to enjoy, I failed

I hope that Venus doesn't expect this game to enhance her reputation....in all honesty, including a STALKER is in my point of view (I'm being careful not to upset anyones sensibilities here ) more than a little "tacky"! (sorry, that's an English word for tasteless)

The whole experience dragged on & I didn't even use up the hours trial, the curser was very sensitive, the "spot the difference" scenes had obscure changes....I could elaborate, but enough...

I hoped, as someone who loves the game of tennis, that this game would have plenty to offer me...sadly not!

No you didn't. It's a sample version which isn't timed. "For one hour " isn't specified as it doesn't apply.

Come on Littleswimmer, download, and try the 1 hr demo. Try it for yourself. Join your fellow Fishes who did, and remember the old saying, "misery loves company". By the way, nice screen name.
