I also wanted to add that this thread has been reserved for reviews only.

If you have any questions about someone else’s review (even if you feel that their review contains incorrect details about this game), please contact that user directly via PM instead of replying to or quoting their post, as this can develop into a discussion that is not suitable for the review thread.

We want to ensure that everyone who visits this thread can easily find the reviews that they’re looking for, so the Moderation Team will be removing any off-topic posts (i.e. non-reviews).

(For any non-review related posts, please feel free to create a "Comments" thread in this Game Forum if there isn't one already. You can always create a new thread for any game questions or tips.)

Thank you!

I will just say this game is a pain you cant progress until you get the required points so you have to replay the same level over and over again until you give up in frustration or reach the quota but apart from that you should enjoy it graphics are good a bit too much dialogue but if you are one who perserveres you should enjoy the game

I agree with tinyzac, however I'm going to buy the game anyway because almost the only games offered are HOA and I don't care for those and I like building games the best. It's certainly no Royal Envoy, but since I've played Royal Envoy over and over, it's good for a change.

I will third what the others have said here. It is hard to progress and hard to figure out how to do it. Big Fish please ask the developers to amend this game to make it so we can play it. Thanks!

3 Cheers for Settlers of the West!! Excellent TM Game!!

This fishy was soooo happy to see a TM game this morning instead of the usual HO game! I love the game. The graphics are fantastic, storyline is well written and humorous, and directions are easy to understand, but to wordy in my book. It maintains all the standards of a building TM game, but has added features that make it totally different. I had my card out to purchase as soon as the trial was over. I wish BF would give us TM lovers a special day, such as TM Tuesdays, so we could look forward to at least one new game weekly instead of the sporadic offerings of late. It's been well over 2 weeks since the last TM game with many, many HO games in between. Keep them coming BF!

Highly recommended by this Happy Fishy!

Very innovative time management game with a western theme. You will be assigning duties to the townsfolk. Will they work in the Construction Yard? The Doctor's Office? The Church? Or will they be a Sheriff to catch the bandit (who might be a notorious outlaw) or will you form a posse? And yes, it's possible to grab the gold for each location if you plan your strategy right.

Recommended!

Wow, I found this game really cumbersome...way too much dialog and some real convuluted (spelling on that) things to do...got bored and frustrated real quickly. Maybe good for someone else...not me.

I am enjoying the game but agree with some of the other comments - it IS very hard to progress without the points so you do keep playing same level over and over again and I am on novice level!! doubt i ever be able to get to expert level ;-o

I would not recommend this game as it currently stands. Even on novice level, it is virtually impossible. Only buy it if you don't mind playing the same levels over and over.

Yes, that is quite a challenging level. And I finally got the gold after I figured out that you can put mules to work at the Trading Posts, and two mules in each Mine and Lumberyard (after they've been upgraded). Mules can carry a lot more than the humans.

At first I wasn't gettin it but I bought it anyway and I love it. Lot of strategy involved.
Playing the levels over and over helped me to understand how to play. I managed to gold on the first 7 levels. Very cool TM game.

I did the beta test on this game and LOVED it. Couldn't wait for it to come out so I could buy it. Now that I've bought it I am deeply disappointed. This is NOT the same as when I beta tested it. It is nearly impossible to advance because the levels are so hard to get even silver on, and I'm in the novice section. I wish had hadn't been so eager to buy it and had done the trial first. I would NOT have purchased it if I had known they had increased the difficulty of it.

Too difficult, not enough "fun" and I'm not buying it just because there aren't any other TM games being offered. I won't do that. Very disappointed.

Love the basic functions/graphics of this game, absolutely HATE that you're required to achieve a certain number of points to progress. I used a "free game" credit to buy it, and am really sorry I did.

This game is impossible! Big Fish should either negotiate an update with the developers, or offer a refund. I, and many others don't have spare cash to squander on unplayable games!

I played about 40 minutes of the Trial and enjoyed it. The only thing keeping me from purchasing is the fact that towards the end of the 40 minutes, it was getting challenging. That and the reviews here about it being so hard...I don't want to waste the money or the game credit! But now I see that the company that developed the game has an update and they have submitted it to Big Fish (this is in another thread on this board). As soon as BF posts the update...I am going to finish my 20 minutes and then decide. But the way it stands now...I am not buying!

Agree with the others. I am playing on Novice (which I'm not) and can only get Bronze on a lot of the levels. There is no way to finish a level in the time allotted to get Gold. Very annoying after the fifteenth or sixteenth try at a level and still getting Bronze.
