I really, really love this game, and yeah, I even like the whole cemetary setting. I didn't have problems with loading or playing, but everytime I try to purchase the first item for Mimi, the cash register bells start ringing and the entire game locks up.

I really look forward to learning more of the intricasies of th game, but until the dev team puts out a patch, I won't bother to buy it.

I wish I liked TM games. The creepyness and theme got my attention right away. Guess i am just creepy, period! I like things like this but not TM. Well, what do you all expect from a old woman who collects Egypt, Halloween, Dragons, and Skulls for a hobby.

It evokes terrible sadness for any of us who've buried someone but maybe that reaction will wear off with time. I'll pass for now and come back another time.

I couldn't even start this game. It froze up after the introduction.

Poodlebear, great review! I think this game is a hoot. I like the idea of planning a nice cemetary also.

Though the outright concept of this game may seem doom and gloom, it really does contain fun, non-gory game play. I'm going to be a bit irritated if it does get pulled, like that Dangerous High School Girls game did. I realize this is a family site, but if you are allowing a child who is not old enough to understand the difference between a silly game and how they are allowed to/should act in the real world to be on the computer alone, that is your own responsibility, not BF's. But I digress.

Everybody dies, it's a fact of life. There's nothing disgusting or vile about death itself. There is no murder or other violent theme in this game. I'm definetely considering, after 40 minutes of gameplay, using a credit. I'm a big TM fan but I'm really sick of making food, building towns, and keeping my farm animals in line. I'm excited that we finally have something different!



They did not pull the game The Unicorn Killer... I can not see why they would pull this.... There Is nothing wrong with the concept of this game... Its part of life.. and It's silly... There are little things about It that make me laugh.. May not be the best TM game... But It's not bad like some or making It out to be.

The same here. I deleted it after the third time of this happening.

same for me. I've reloaded 4 times. Gets to screen with objectives for first level, the quits back to desktop. After reading the comments, doesn't sound like I'm missing much. I thought same thing as person who commented on zombies vs. what ever they are .. thinking this may be fun like that was even though the theme does not appeal to me. I also love the building games, especially Build a Lot and this seemed to be a building game too. Oh well.

I liked the premise of this game and I enjoy some TM games so I went ahead and got this game. I agree the voice is annoying and Mimi is annoying and unnessisary - Mr. Jones could just be working for a lot of good causes like his own retirement and not her! I was playing along and enjoying the small challange of bigger items and better grave site layouts when I got nausea from Mr. Jones going back from the graves to the cars! I am not usually prone to this as I enjoy large file games that could much more easily make you motion sick. Mr. J's GS game has a good amount of potential as I am also tired of TM games that cook or feed farm animals or the 26th version of build a lot.
Fun game - needs some small fixes on voices, controls and something to fix my nausea! Not worth your game credit yet - maybe in an updated version of the game.

I don't generally even try TM games although this one sounded cute to me. If the theme doesn't appeal, then don't play it. I've tried one or two that made me think I would rather get a boring repetitive job than play that one (unfortunately I'm disabled).

Anyway, I think cemetaries are interesting but, of course, the game is nothing like real cemetary management. The posts here made me give it a try and it's worked fine although I didn't get very far. Can you only place the bench facing in one direction? I wanted to turn it, but couldn't see how.

I liked the way the mouse clicked moved the character. Mine are usually running into walls

The only part I found strange was that Mimi thing

I am a TM freak!! But I could not play the game. Froze up twice and since I read the reviews before I get home from work I realize this will not work for me so I uninstalled. Will try again after BF gets a few bugs out of it. Back to Burgershop 2 until the next TM comes along....soon I hope.

I like it seeing as I am depressed anyway, but I get an error and it shuts down, this is the second game in a week that I have problems with, as I am disabled and house bound playing these games is pretty much all I can do. Please fix it!

The game doesn't run smooth with me -arrow crawls over the screen like a snail.

and what fun is it anyway to throw people in a grave - immidiate delete for mine.

The idea with a graveyard is totally different to other Tm-Games.
It gets never boring and I like it very much. I have bought it this week
