And the first point to me is: I am hard of hearing. And I do not understand the voices with slang and would like to see the messages/text the figueres speak!! So, sorry. This is not my game. For all other fishies: Happy gaming.


You can turn on subtitles in the options.

I agree.

I liked the game, as it was much more straight forward in comparison to others.

However, my biggest complaint is the "to be continued" part.
I don't see how 6.99 is a justifiable price, when compared to other large file/adventure games which offer much more play time.

I just don't see why this game really was offered, if it is so short. All you really need to experience the game, is to do the trial version.


After doing some searching.
There are a total of four episodes available. Three were released in a bundle together, the fourth by itself. I would think the first three would be available here perhaps somehow in the same fashion?

Actuall, AGON - The London Scene is the first part of a 14-part series according to the website. I'm not really sure how it's broken down, however. My impression is that it was released in the UK first and then the US which would explain the delay. I'd like to know how often BFG will release the episodes. 6.99 per episode may seem high in comparison to some of the other downloads, but I really don't think it's a lot. Some of the other download games aren't really that good. I'd hope that this makes up for it with some qualities like better graphics and voice acting.

I agree with itsme07 - "Must say I am disappointed that Agon-The London Scene was presented this way, specifically with no indication that this game is one in a series of three. The London Scene only begins "the epic mystery". "

I was actually so intrigued - I bought the game - even at game club discount it was not worth it. I was sorely disappointed. Had it been made clear that this was a very brief episode, with no story line resolution, I would not have used my credit this month !!!!

Bottom line, don't buy it as it is simply not worth it.

I obviously don't have the patience to try and figure out this point and click game. I spent 30 minutes trying to just maneuver the area. I did make it downstairs and saw the guard, but it was apparently too early as the guard had nothing to say to me. I went ahead and deleted the demo after 30 minutes and headed back to replay Azada...
Please Big Fish introduce something new and exciting!!!!!

I have downloaded this game, but haven't played it yet. Regardless of all the negative comments I've read in the forums, it still sounds interesting to me. I have read that there will be a total of 14 episodes, so my question is will BFG be offering all 14 episodes?

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! This game had the potential to WOW me and it didn't deliver what I was expecting.I've played a few large file games on BF and they took me a few days to get through ,not a few hours.I will add though that this is the 1st time that I have been disappointed with a game that I have purchased @ BF.I hope it does not happen again anytime soon.

I found the guard, but he doesn't want to talk to me. I also tried to click on his book- nothing . THis game is very confusing. I will try the gameboomers I saw some of you talking about.

Hi

I too am finding this game frustrating but it's not all bad! However, I've given the guard the whisky and done everything else I can think of - looked at books, letters, newspapers, the codex ... and he still won't go to sleep so I can look for the keys!!

Any ideas? I don't see why I should pay another sum for the guide as this already isn't the usual money's worth we get from BigFish.

Also, I did look on Gameboomers, but there is no London Scene walkthrough that I can see - only the previous AGON episodes.

That’s it?
Just one episode?
"To be continued" !
It took longer to download this game than to complete it! I usually get months of enjoyment from a BFG purchase, in some cases… years.

BFG I feel cheated.

Ok, so my net connection was pretty poor yesterday... only 5Kbs and the download stopped frequently.
Nevertheless, I found the interface awkward but not unusable, my biggest problem was the blurred ‘e’ rune translation, which I took to be a ‘c’.

I feel completely ripped off! OMG I finished the first part and he gets on the train and that's it. It's over. I can't believe I paid for this. I got part of a game. I've never been unhappy with big fish but I don't think I will ever be confident purchasing another game from them. This was definitely misleading. It looked like such a great game but they never mention you don't get the whole thing.

I am currently playing Madagascar, part 3 of the Agon series,
AGON: The Mysterious Codex, which also includes Part 1: London, and Part 2: Lapland.
{Was able to purchase parts 1-3 in an Adventure Anthology directly from Viva.}

The game itself is quite good, and worth the time/money I have invested in it,
and I plan on purchasing part 4 AGON: Lost Sword of Toledo as soon as I can.

I do agree with the most of you, and feel like $6.99 for each part a bit steep,
when you can purchase complete large file games from BFG for the same monies.

{Agon was originally released in 2003 outside the US as fourteen downloadable episodes}
