I try to be constructive with my comments, but this time I give in. This game is seriously bad! The English is terrible, hidden objects are often too small/indistinct to identify from the sometimes dubious descriptions, as are the differences in the 2 pictures, and the format of the game is so boring.

Definitely not up to BFG's usual high standards

I agree, this was the worst game I have played, could not see most of the items. Will not be buying it

WORST HIDDEN OBJECT GAME EVER!

The dev's seem to think that by making the objects tiny, blurry and unrecognizable (one object was a "toaster" and even after I used the hint, the object shown looked NOTHING like any toaster from planet earth!) that they are creating a "challenge."

The game was so bad, I still have 34 minutes in the demo - and will delete it rather than continue play. A challenge is one thing - a stupid, frustrating and impossible game is just not fun at all.

On the "find the differences" style play - again, even after I'd used a hint - I was not able to see what the difference actually WAS! (In this case, the bedroom scene and apparently it was something to do with the maid's mop-head, but I couldn't see it for the life of me even after it was highlighted.

It won't play on my computer, either. I get an outline of the screen and nothing happens. Task manager says Broken Clues "isn't responding". Downloaded it yesterday, and uninstalled. Tried again this morning and the same thing happened. But from the comments here, looks like I won't be missing much.

Tried to get this game to download twice and both times came up with corrupt file....Now I have trash on my computer and cannot get it cleaned up. When it downloaded and I tried to play it, I came up with half black screen, half checkerboard.....

Those who can't get the game to play are lucky. What a crummy game! FIrst off, the English was wrong. I hate that in a game. But even worse, I'm pretty good at HO games but I kept running out of time! The objects are not clear. When I used the hint to find the football in the bedroom it looked nothing like a football! This is certainly no MCF! I played for 15 min and that is enough. I gave up when I failed to spot all the differences in the bedroom.

I wish I could properly put into words how terrible this game truly is, but BF doesn't allow that kind of language here! So I will just say this, really, really, ******* terrible!

Just played about 30 minutes of the 1 hour trial. HATE it. The music is terrible and the items were very hard to find, and don't even get me started on the spot the difference scenes. Where's the asprin. I can truely say that this one was the worst game I ever got from BFG. Glad I did not purchase it.

I too am a hugh HO fan..but without question..this is the worse game I have ever tried to play. Even with a magnifying glass..I failed many times to find the hidden objects..especially in the spot the difference scenes. My main issue though was the fact that I could not control my cursor..it "floated" making this game so undesirable to play that I deleted the demo with 32 minutes left. I would never give up on BF for one little mistake though I love this site and will continue to play as long as they are here.

THIS HAS GOT TO BE THE WORST HOB GAME BIG FISH HAS EVER RELEASED.
I only lasted 10 mins, before I uninstalled.

I completely agree, I tried downloading it twice and ended up having to power off the machine once and finally got it to shut down the second time. I am just deleting it and not even going to try again. It isn't worth the time and trouble

I'm a big fan of HOG and usually buy all that is offered. I have to say though, I passed on this one. I think it is just awful and wouldn't waste my money. It sounded good at first, but once I tried a sample it didn't take me long to change my mind. Two final words --- "it stinks".
