Game too short....save your money

[Post New]by slm1022 on Dec 3, 08 4:26 PM
I feel ripped off because the game was so short and a little aggravating when I finished the game so quickly. Didn't even keep me busy for an afternoon. Big Fish should only charge half or third price on games like this. I was intrigued with the first few minutes of the game so I bought it....what a mistake!

Thanks for the advice, was thinking of buying but not sure.

My mind is now made up, will not bother.

Thanks

Have a good day x x x

Thanks for that, I was also thinking of buying it but I think I'll save my money for something else! Shame as the demo was quite fun to play.

Same here - nearly bought it, but then read posts on this forum and decided not to buy - thank you for the info.

I can't believe with all the good games that big fish has put out and charged a full credit for, they would charge the same for this game. It took longer to read the story then to play the game.

Big Fish has disappointed me big time.

I also feel robbed, this game is way too short, if you want a good game avoid this.

I don't suppose there's any way to get a refund?

You know...I usually check and see what others have to say about a game before taking the plunge and spending a credit, but I was intrigued by this one. Definitely save your money. You'll be done 20 minutes after your trial expires and the replay value isn't worth it.

This game SUCKS way to short should offer a credit refund, not worth it.

BigFish should be guilty for takeing money for this game, it was a joke.

I sent an email requesting a credit as it was ar too short and a waste of money and they gave me it straight away, if your not happy with a game tell them so, you may be surprised how easy it is to get a refund

I love it. It's challenging enough so it's not boring but not so hard that you're always having to find help in the forum for each next step. Sometimes I like a game that isn't so long. I must not be as fast as others but I've been playing for a couple of hours and I haven't finished it yet.

Thanks for the info. I decided to check the forum before buying. I suspected it would be a short game when I'd already found the first gem by the time the trial expired.

Having said that, too bad there weren't a few more chapters. This was quite enjoyable! Any thoughts of offering 'continuing stories' at a discount?

If we stop buying games that are too short, no matter how fun they are, the game makers will catch on. Just as I have been passing on games that don't have an untimed mode, I'm now going to take a pass on all games that are too short.

I disliked this game on so many levels---this is the first time I've ever regretted spending a credit on a HO game---I will be much more cautious in the future!

Thanks for the heads up guys. I have a credit sitting in my account and I was tempted to buy this game. After reading your feedback, I've decided not to.

I felt the same way. I contacted them and they gave me another game credit. They don't want you to feel ripped off. Give it a try.

Total rip-off!

I'm new to BFG games, having been told about it (and other similar companies) existence a couple of days ago. Bought some BFG credits, played Return to Ravenhearst, loved it! Downloaded some more demos from BFG and went for the full version of Madame Fate and Alabama Smith. The Alabama demo looked promising. I played the entire game on the harder setting, with no hints, in well under two hours. Its so easy its laughable.
I hear good reports of Dracula Origin but am now wary that it may another short rip-off.

Alabama was very short. Dracula is great! Worth the credit!

Played Dracula before I was a little fish in a big pond, well worth a game credit. Thanks for the heads up on this short game, won't buy it either.

I agree that game is entriely too short. How do we get word to Big Fish Games how we feel about this?
