Great Game. My only complaint is that it was not long enough

How many chapters in it? How long did it take you to finish? Obviously not very long! LOL

Somebody posted in another thread that it only took him/her 2 hours. I haven't been counting the number of scenes, and there aren't numbered chapters. There's no timer, so if you are stubborn and don't use your 5 hints per scene when you get down to the last 5 items, it can take a while. I'm still working on it, taking my time, and taking breaks to do other things as well.

It would be great if Big Fish would start telling us how many levels a game has or an estimate at the amount of time it takes to play a game. That would save us from buying a game we've played for an hour and then beating it 30 minutes later.

I'm downloading HH2 now, but I doubt I'll buy it since it seems to be a very short game - which I HATE.

Happy New Year everyone!

Particularly in untimed HO games, there's really no way to estimate how long it will take players to finish. Some people spot the items very very quickly, others take a very long time, right?

There's always waiting until the game has been out a few days, and then reading all the threads about it to see how many people complained about it being too short. I'm impatient; if I really enjoy the first 15 minutes then I usually buy it right then, the first day it's out.

Im with Diane. Great game, just way too short. Much better than the first one, I thought.

I hate to say it, but this is the first time I've bought a BigFish game and was ready to ask for my money back. It was incredibly short and a huge disappointment.

Hello Hollyodie and Welcome to Pond. I agree with you. Luckily I was having some trouble with my computer last night so did download HH2 until today. Loved the graphic, but I read about how short the game was and decided not to buy it. I also demo a game before I buy it, so it would have been over much sooner than I would want. Glad I didn't buy it...

I must say this is my first post, as I have been with BFG for a long time. I am a HO fanatic, and I must say that HH2 was a big disappointment. The graphics were great, however, the story line left a lot to be desired. The game was very short, taking only 1 1/2 hours to finish. Unfortunately, I purchased the game.

Anyway, been watching the forums---guess I am taking the plunge to post. Happy New Year to all!!

i think this game should be half-priced since it seemed to be half as long as usual games. i finished it in no time and that is strange for me. wish i hadn't wasted my money.
sorry crhurdy. didn't see your post when i started venting.

Completely agree with the above posts - I played the demo yesterday and decided to buy it, including the demo time I finished in under 2 hours, very disappointed.

Graphics are good, but objects easy to find and puzzles were easy too.

I, too, wish I hadn`t used my last credit on this.

Way too short. "Boom" all of a sudden it was over. Don't waste your money.

I feel really disappointed with this one, took no time at all to finish, what a waste of a credit! and that 'to be continued...' it won't make me get the next one. What a fiddle Big Fish!

I love this game! Even it's a Hidden Object game and I'm not good at that game kind. But I still love it.

I was looking for something to play so decided to download the trial of HH2, I've been playing for 33 minutes of my hours trial and it crashed with an access violation error.

I didn't like the game that much but thought I'd check here in case anyone else go any error messages.

Having read the posts above I'm so glad I didn't buy the game, there are too many short games around at the moment which are a waste of money. I'm waiting for some decent games and will be reading the forums before I buy any more from Big Fish.

To all those who feel robbed having paid for the game and completed it in such a short time I'd suggest you contact Big Fish, you never know they might give you a refund

Very nice advice thanks. I'll use next time in cinema. If I wont like the movie, I will watch until the end anyway,then I will ask my money back because I didn't like it. Also I will write on some forums that people should ask for refund if they don't like it. Doesn't matter that I spent 2 hours in cinema.
Really nice advice,best I ever heard

170MBs. You'd think it was a decent sized game & would last a day or so. Nope. Video must've been 4/5 of all those MBs. Why waste our time on videos? We want gaming, not videos.
