Can ANY game really be as bad as all the above reviews indicate? Yes it can!

I've always believed in "different strokes for different folks" and check games for myself. I demo'd this game and I learned my lesson. Next time I see this many reviews in the negative without a single positive - it's time to move on and not waste my time.

[b][i] Im relieved to see I am not only one that was SHOCKED at how bad this game is. HUGE YAWN and horrible graphics. DO NOT BUY. Bring on more time management games! Wayyy to many search games and not well thought out.

Gotta' say I agree with all the reviews - I would be ashamed to have my name associated with something this bad - I would also love to know just how much money was lost on this endeavor - a waste of time in every respect.

The best thing about this game is that I had to replay Return to Ravenhearst which I actually like better the second time around.

Less than 15 minutes into the game, my eyes are shot, and I have a headache. I don't mind straight HOs, but would like to see what I'm looking for.

Well.

I am one of the biggest Corrie fans out. I've watched it right from the very first episode. This game is so dreadful it nearly put me off ever watching it again!!

I've deleted the game - wouldn't buy it even as a DD - and I'll stick with the programme, thanks!!

I too am a faithful Corrie fan; I live in Canada and we get it several months later than it actually airs in the UK. I rarely miss an episode. I decided to try the demo and after 15 minutes, I cannot find the first piece of the recipe. I completely agree with all the other posts - this is possibly the worst game I've tried. It's an insult to the beloved Soap which has aired since the 1960's. Shame on the devs who put this together - was there any attempt at all on your part to make it appealing?

If I were a producer of Coronation Street I'd want this game pulled and all evidence of it's existence incinerated.


Annie 1115 LOL. I never laughed so much as reading this statement. So true, so true. Did the really think this was going to sell? Makes ya wonder

I endured it for the full hour.

Pros: Quite possibly an effective cure for insomnia. All I want to do now is sleep.

Cons: Overly cluttered Junk pile scenes with almost invisible objects blended in to the background. Many identical objects in each scene. Many mis-spelled words.

Wow, that's all my pet peeves in one game! I didn't think that was possible.

This is a first for me. I have never seen a unanimous panning of a game before. And this is a TGT?

Thanks, fishies, for saving me the trouble of even downloading the demo!

Big Corrie fan as well (glad Frank is dead in Cnd). So happy when I saw the game title, so disappointed to read this is so terrible.

I played the first HOG scene and the first ridiculously easy puzzle and then uninstalled it. Boring dialog that goes on too long, embarrassingly bad HOG scenes reminiscent of 5 years ago, just bad all around. Most games I play that are based on TV shows/movies are pretty atrocious. Not one of them make me want to go watch the TV show/movie. This game takes the cake. It made me want to burn my TV, laptop and torch my BFG and Netflix memberships.

As a HUGE Corrie fan----watched it since episode 1 way back in the 60's!-----I was sooooooo looking forward to playing this! Alas, I only lasted 10 mins and gave up. What possessed the devs to think that this was going to be acceptable? Do they think because it's Corrie people will love it and buy it anyway?
The game play is so old with it's junk piles in the hos, and the VERY simple mini games that I came across in my 10 mins did nothing to encourage me to continue.
I'm sure this theme could have been developed into a worthwhile game by spending a little more time and a bit more money on it!
All in all, the game just embarrassed me as a Corrie fan!

Terrible game! The objects are so small, I actually had to put my reading glasses on and lean over my desk to try and find them. Talk about a headache! No thanks..I'll stick with everyone else and pass.

I think that is EXACTLY what they thought!! I know I nearly bought it without trying it, purely because it was 'Corrie'. Thank God I didn't!

I can't help wondering if Corrie's producers actually know that this game exists. I'm going to write to them and ask them. If they don't, maybe they can claim copyright infringement and get the game pulled.

Edited to add: I've just written to the ITV. If anyone else wants to, the e-mail address is: viewerservices@itv.com
