Very Disappointed !!!

[Post New]by housebound on Mar 3, 11 10:27 PM
after reading all of the other post concernig the game
it seems that I am the only one that is very disappointed
the dev's dropped the ball on this one. I am a big CE fan,
& I look forward to them as they come out, the price is fair,
most of the time, but this one is not even worth a single
game credit let alone the $ 13.99 that I paid for it.
the quality is very poor, graphic's are grainy, the ****
scenes items are for the most part are almost
impossible to see & find ( I used 5 hints in one **** scene ) &
last but not least, the story line was boring, very boring.
I guess that I have gotten a tad bit spoiled by high quality
of the games that BFG offer on a regular basics.

No I'm with you all the way, I thought the game was a tad rubbishy even tho I bought it, I think I will be thinking twice before buying a collectors game that is any thing like this one, even the vocals were crap too lol.

well Roos, it looks like that you & I are the only ones that don't like the game
as for the vocals, they bugged the carp out of me ,so I turned them off.

I agree with you guys! I didn't buy the game, just demoed it but I thought the same. The hidden objects were hard to find and and one time they had a dice and it was transparent until the shadow passed over it. I haven;t ever seen a transparent dice. The storyline was jerky and boring. Even the backgrounds were gray. Not a great game!

I agree - the voice acting is horrendous - I wanted to slap her the minute she opened her mouth and that Mrs Thorne or whatever her name is !

I'm enjoying the game though...without sound!

Have a great weekend y'all!

I agree with you. It was not up to the standards of other CE games. I'm not a fast player but I was done before I knew it. It was a total waste of money.

I posted early on that I didn't think it merited or was worthy of CE price. I love ERS games and will gladly pay the extra. A perfect example of not being worth it is Stray Souls. I loved Stray Souls, but it was too short to justify the CE price.

If you compare this Margrave to the other two -- there is no comparison. However the first two weren't even worth DD $2.99 price IMO.

Count me in...I looked forward to the trial ending...I buy almost every CE.,but not this one...I "might" buy it as a SE..I thought it was just "boring"...I guess I'm spoiled...

I also bought this game and thought it was awful. The last few chapters took FOREVER to finish, it just slowed down to a crawl..thought at first it was my computer but every other game ran perfect..ALSO.when i went to exit the game and came back to it later, it did not save it...had to start all over again.

unfortunately I have to agree with most of you...The music and voices were annoying...so i muted that...if i had bought the demo i probably could have finished the game at that point...way too short. I love games that are a challenge...this was too easy..as far as the price..i don't think it was worth the ce price I paid...I didn't use any hints and i didn't use the sg... I had no big problems like i am seeing in the forum...I just wish the game had been longer...with a little better of a plot maybe?

Well I was so desperate for something to play that I forked out the money. Now regret it. The game left me cold.

Unfortunately I bought the game. It was a tad slow at switching sceens that should have tipped me off right there. By the time I got to the sceen with the birdbath and the whale doors my cursor froze, moved, froze. I am so ticked off I just gave up playing the game. I'd like my money back...

Why are these CE games doing this?

Hi there,
Well, I purchased this game and enjoyed it but I do agree that it fell short of what we expected of a CE. That said, having purchased the first two instalments I found this one much more engaging etc...hence the purchase.
However, in light of the last few offerings in this genre, the game excels!!!
Cheers.

I just finished the one-hour trial and it was...after reading these not so favorable reviews I have to agree with all of the limitations of this game, so not a buy for me even though I could get hooked on the English countryside scenes, but not the accent!
