I want my money back!!!!

OMGosh, I had no clue how far along I truly was when the free trial ran out. I was sure there were two or three more "screens" with play areas (did that make sense?). I had two left and I bought it--now I am out the money and I am so ticked!

Not to mention the game itself did suck. (I know, so why did I buy? cause I hate to leave games undone!). Too much reliance on color shading. The mini games were okay and though I usually do not like the way they interfere with the fun of HO this time I think the highlight of the entire package were the mini games.

Can you give me back my game credit and we can all pretend like this never happened..............

I thought the game would be much, much longer because it is based on real events. So I bought the game long before the trial was over. Boy oh boy I was stupid, wasted my money too. I am not suprised that people finished it before the end of the 60 min trial ended, the game was really easy

I didn't know this was based on a real crime. Sure, it's in the title, but I figured that was just a gimmick to sell the game.

I finished this 30 minutes after purchasing it, so I feel completely ripped off. Also, frankly, it was pretty boring. Here's the criminal, let's go on a hidden item search of various places he hasn't been in years, and then at the end, catch him because he's stupid enough to wander up to us and ask us what's going on, while we are in the midst of conversation. If real police work happens this way, it's a miracle anyone gets caught. This was actually the most boring hidden object game I've ever played. Talk about no suspense or surprises at all.

I agree with all the above comments, the game was way too short, I didn't quite finish the game because I did read the opening and all other dialog. However I was on the last frame.

I did like fact that unlike most HOG's the scenes were not quite so "trashy".

The BIG down side of this game seems to be someone's fasionation with this real life killer Ira Einhorn! Tis indeed is in very poor taste and I hope will never accept another game based on real life crimes. We just don't need that type of thing, when most of us little fishes are trying to escape from reality by playing our fun games.

Thanks
Teebo

Yes, I was also one of the stupid ones. I bought it thinking there was going to be more and was surprised when it just ended!!!! I agree, I want my credit back!

I need to request my money back. I too finished this d*mn game in under an hour and was upset because it was just too short... I spent my money for this!! Sometimes I think they need to put in the comments for the game if it is short or not, because I think they make the games sound really good, for us pigeons to buy, buy fail to tell us that it was short!!!!!!

i also felt the game was way too short and somewhat boring. But when I turned the game off & went back to it, it wouldn't let me start where I had left off so had to replay the entire game twice. Even then i was done in 2 hrs., including reading. Sorry I bought it. Definately not worth it. Big disapointment for BFG. I

I bought the game and am sorry I did. If I knew I would finish in less than hr and half, would have got something more challenging. Money I really couldn't afford to waste, but live and learn.

I agree with the other posters in saying this game was way too short. I'm also glad I didn't waste a credit on this game.

Well I already bought it. Hope I like it even if it is short. At least I didn't pay full price like I would have at the store.

Very disappointed with this game. Short, uninteresting and dialogues silly. A mistake buying it.

I guess this will teach me to go to a forum before buying a game, I'm not sure how many levels I had left when the demo ran out but it wasn't many, I thought it continued on for at least another page! Very disappointed. I like mysteries and reading some true crime books so the game had that appeal for me but it could have been set up to be much longer. I too wish BF offered refunds.

I'm glad I'm not the only one disappointed with this game. I bought it!! Would not recommend it to anyone. I kept playing thinking something would take place and it would get more challenging, but no luck. Can anyone tell me if all the Big Fish games are like this, and which ones go on to become more challenging without getting bored. Waste of money in MO.

I'm one of the people who bought the game. I bought this one without the demo first and I wasn't really a fan. I thought this would be a pretty good game, but I was a bit disappointed. The graphics were good, but I didn't think the dialogue fit the atmosphere of what the game was. I was laughing at some points as I was reading the dialogue--it was more comical than serious. The game was very, VERY short and the mini games were just ok. The fingerprint mini game really got me frustrated because the prints did not look like half of those that supposedly matched it. Overall, I give this game

Oh well, at least I love most of the games I get. I'm bound to come across one that I don't like every once in a while.

Unfortunately I bought it. I'm ususally not one to finish a game quickly, since I go back and forth between games. I did it this time too, but it still seemed to end very quickly.
