Welcome to the Pond, Aamaretto! It's always nice to have a new fish swim in.

The reason for people posting their frustration for a lack of TMs isn't because there are few of them. There are a fair amount... but not when you take into consideration that there are over 1000 HOGs. Some of us who like other game genres (TMs, Match 3, RPGs, etc.) feel somewhat upset that the HOGs are taking over, especially with the CEs coming in hard and fast. We don't begrudge them their passion, but some of us would really prefer some variety at BFG and we aren't really getting it.

That said, this game looks to be really dull and boring, so it's not a good example of a TM. There are hundreds of good HOGs, but the quality of TMs is truly sliding into the deep dark trenches of the pond. To those who love this game, more power to you. I think I'll wait for something better. Unfortunately, with the tidal wave of HOGs always flooding in, that will likely be a long wait.

(PLEASE NOTE: I am NOT bashing HOGs, so don't get angry with me! I only ask for a little variety with decent quality.)

Happy gaming, everyone!

This is definete not the best tm-game ever, but this also not a bad game. I will buy it now on my "games for later list" and will buy it probably if we have the next sale or when I need another game for my punchcard.

I cannot speak for others, but I think I've tried pretty much all of them. I've been a BFG member since May of 2009.

as a member [initially] since early 2008, i have seen spells where the TMs are few and far between, and i've seen spells where even the HOGs go a month or more with little sparkle...

just a matter of treading water and waiting for the next great game to float by...

as for casino chaos i kept waiting for the chaos to ensue... it didn't really happen, not until the last couple levels at the first casino, and even then it was manageable... i guess i was expecting something like megaplex madness in that it ramps up quickly and the upgrades are very visible... or even the jane's hotel series... but i played and found the premise both unique and marketable - there really isn't anything like it that i've come across...

the floor changes from level to level - different tables, numbers of slots - so you have to plan accordingly... and the people coming through the door have different personalities, so placing them later on becomes paramount in earning expert on levels... but the game decided what the floor looks like - it's not like some TMs where you buy a second "slot machine," you buy an upgrade for your "blackjack table," and eventually you might have enough money to hire someone to serve your drinks for you [the juice guy at sally's was nowhere near as expensive as the aerobics instructor, though ]

the graphics are a little better than ok, the music alright, but the selling point is the characterization of the various 'gamblers' that come in and the employees you have working in the casino... so many TMs simply change the color of the person's shirt and leave it at that... one thing i was a little miffed at was the placement issue - many times i clicked to move someone from one table to another or the slot machine or to cash out, and if i didn't get it just right, they snapped right back... i found myself dealing with that in megaplex madness, too

not sure if i would i toss it just, yet, but i'm also not 100% sold... i like "different" and this fits the bill, but i do think it could be greatly improved

This is not a bad game for those who like something challenging but it's too difficult for me. The clunky controls need more improvement. Great graphics though.

Another boring TMG! This is exactly why I cancelled my membership. BFG has so many games that appear to be devil worshipping. I have purchased the last couple ofo TMG from BG and they were boring as hell, they are not fooling me with this one, even the graphics are pathetic! Don't waste your time, money or game credit on this one. Even playing the one hour trial version is a waste of time. DON'T DO IT!

I agree!!! IMO you would have to be bored to tears to play this game!
There would have to be no other game available for me to spend time here!

Geez...after reading all of those reviews...I'm a little hesitant to say that I really liked it. The pace does pick up significantly and the setting is unique (although I must admit that I love all things Vegas). I also have to admit that I'm not a hardcore TM gamer so, for me, the difficulty level was enough to be exciting but not so much that I ended up not being able to move forward. So, from a dilettante in the TM genre and a fan of Vegas, I think it was kinda fun.

The concept was good, but it just didn't entertain me as much as I would have hoped. There is not much to the game, you just wait for the customers to finish playing the different games and switch them from one station to another. Overall its an ok game, but for a big TM fan like me, its not a game that I will spend a credit on.

I am so desperate for TM games that I bought this one hoping it would get better as I progressed through the game and unfortunately it didn't happen and wish I could get my game credit back.

The controls are horrible and upgrading does not equate to achieving an expert score. Not sure what it takes. Guess I need Samantha Stevens here to twitch her nose to get me to an expert score.

I've been giving BFG time to rectify the issue with the serious lack of TM games but all I'm doing is wasting my time and more importantly my money. They are more concerned with these very dark HOG's that border on the macabre. I long for the beginning when there were more of a variety of games. Please go back to the old BFG because the new one is not as fun.

Not sure how much longer I'm going to keep my membership but probably not much longer at this rate. I see alot of comments about members canceling their membership but doubt BFG really cares. There is obviously a huge demand for HOG's to the point that other types of games are taking a backseat.

I've found a few other gaming websites similar to BFG that offer more TMG's so more than likely I will cancel here and join there.

If this was aq 2.99 deal of the day game I would buy it now. For full price I am not sold. Game starts out really slow and I would hate to pay full price and find out I was bored to soon. I hope in later levels you can play something besides roulette on the mini games. Roulette their way is fifty fifty chance of winning ie boring.

An interesting concept that I can't recall playing in TM before and I give it props for that.
Yes the first few levels were slow but once you get closer to the end levels on the first one I could feel/see the pace picking up a bit.
I enjoyed it enough to buy it at a DD price of 2.99.
The reasons I will not use a credit on it at the moment are:

1. The conceierge (sp?) has an upgrade but is more or less useless as it's rare through casino's 1 & 2 you actually use him. Would like him to work more - like when hearts are dropping and I'm placing and can't get them the drinks/cashier I'd like to have him actually go to them and boost those hearts a little bit for me and he won't.
So he's a ragamuffin I could do without first few places.

2. The controls to this one SUCK. There is no nice way to say it. My main frustration with this in second casino is that while hearts are dropping all around the room it's taking me up to SIX tries to get someone actually IN the cashier zone for the drop. Several folks I thought I'd cashed out and it hadn't clicked the zone just right so there they were hogging those spots at the games getting madder & madder. The drag/click needs to be much, much, much better and then I probably would have paid full price for this game. So this did cost the game a sale.

3. The upgrades are pretty lame. I like to see jazzy, blingy, pretties and with this they are pretty much invisible. Except for the people. And then you can't hire enough people. Hiring exact amounts of pit bosses would erase the need for security camera's and watching to make one of them run I guess but to be honest the thieves in the first few levels were fairly low.

4. Pit Bosses versus security cameras - no idea on later levels but crime isn't that high that you need two items to combat this problem. I would have preferred some kind of line entertainer to smack the ones getting mad happy or something while I was busy clicking everywhere else.

Just my two cents. Like I said, I would have bought if it weren't for the controls being so frustrating when trying to drop on things like the cashier box.

I Loved it!

I really enjoyed this game and found it quite challenging. I am aTM fan, so I will check out any new TM game and go through the demo. Some game I know right away before I finish the demo that it is not a game for me.

Pros:
-The concept is something new and interesting.
- Some levels are extremely tough to get expert on. A few levels I had to play a half dozen times or more before I got expert. So there is a nice mix between challenging level and hard levels.
-You have to be very aware of how you place people and that becomes more important as the game proceeds.
-Choose your upgrades very carefully. There is no magic formula for choosing upgrades, you will get better results on different levels with different upgrades.
-Someone commented about not needing security cameras when you have pit bosses. I can tell you that on certain levels you can't buy enough pit bosses to cover your tables, so will get cheaters.
-Time to complete the game was quite long. i felt I got my money's worth. Some TM game you can finish in an hour, this one takes hours.
-You get to play various casino games between levels in order to earn more money. The games you play change with each location change. I really liked playing blackjack and I think the fact that you can play the casino games ties back really well with game.



Cons
-you have to get used to the controls. The first few levels I found it quite difficult to pick up someone and place them. But after awhile you get used to and it became easy to place people.
-If you like being able to pick out how your surrounding looks, then you will be disappointed. You can't choose rugs, curtains, or games. I am one who doesn't care about picking those things out, I just want to jump right into the game.
- You can't swap players between stations. You really have to work for everything in this game.


I found the game quick paced, exciting and thoroughly enjoyable!

How can I best describe my playing this game? I love Time Management games but I don't like Casino Chaos.

While it is a one click pick up of patrons, sometimes hitting where to drop them off is a challenge. I also find the game lags. If I wanted an arcade game requiring eye-hand co-ordination, I'd go play something on Xbox.

Every level it's the same darn thing. Pick people up and drop them wherever they'd prefer to be. There's nothing to distinguish Level 1 from Level 32. It's 50 levels of boring, tedious repetition.

My review, "The most unfun game I've played in long, long time."

It seems like Hidden Object games are all the rage on BFG these days. And you know what, I don't much like them either. I play casual games like what BFG offers because I want a few hours entertainment.

Casino Chaos is not a few hours entertainment. It's boring, repetitive, drag people around the screen. It makes Megaplex Madness look like Diner Dash in comparison.

Bah!

I agree with U cherzy13 all the way I hate Management games anyway pulling and shoving the guys around the place is not my cup o tea and what the hell is that little man doing in the lower left corner of the screen '''''What does he do'''''' when I tried the hour game he was onlly mentioned once;;; he just atands there and does nothing

at least the bouncer does tell the cheaters off the waitresses gives out drink but he does nothing in my opinion

Pros: The game has a new theme that's different from most time management games. There are achievements! I like that there's a one-click drag. You click on the customer to move them. You don't have to hold down your mouse button to do that. The artwork is sort of cute. I like the first casino's background.

This is from Ria

So all I had to do was drag and Drop????? ''no that did not happen for me'' I tries to put the customer on the DOT; where they wanted to go, no he or she went flying back to the queue'' it only worked on the waitress, The assistants and the Bouncer; AND the assistants I had to bring them to the fromt of the counter so as they would stay there

I enjoy any TM that I can't cruise through with almost straight gold - the interface is a little clunky but manageable. Luckily I got past the first few levels during the trial because they were really slow! The game does pick up the pace, I have been stumped for gold at Level 47 for 2 days now.

The main complaint I have is I would like a guide to the different classes of players for reference, since the dollar signs are not universal but class dependent. There is tutorial as you are playing but no help section at all. Kind of lazy on the part of the programmers.

I also appreciated the concept of the game but it was too easy. It seems that I am either frustrated with the TM games for being too easy or too hard...middle ground? please and thank you. On a side note, this reminds me not to go to my local casino...
