I just downloaded this game, and it will not open. I usually try games out first before buying, but didn't with this one. Last time I do that! I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but it still will not open. My computer is only 6 months old, and has latest updates of activex, etc. Any suggestions?

I played the demo and I have to say "enh". The graphics are beautiful and the game play is intuitive. I only used three hints and two of those were just because I wanted to keep moving fast; I'm sure I would have found the objects if I had been patient. The objects are, for the most part, well hidden without being impossibly faint or small; the exceptions to this tend to be too easy to find, rather than too hard.

I am not generally a fan of the "silouhettes" (sorry, can't spell it ) genre of HOGs, but here the pictures are so clear that it wasn't a problem for me. This format is used extensively, but not exclusively; about 1/3 of the scenes are traditional "find the list of items".

The story seemed to be just about right; intriguing enough to keep me interested without being annoying and the mini-games were the right level of difficulty for a casual game.

So, with all these positives, why the "enh?" Because it seemed just a bit too easy. I don't like games that have me beating my head on the desk (which is why I now stay away from the large-file adventure types), but I also don't like games that I can just zip right through. I read most of the text (OK, I skipped the last couple of journal entries) and used minimal hints, and I still got through 8 of the 12 (or 13) levels. The confusion about this stems from the fact that the intro to the walkthrough lists 12 levels but the Table of Contents of the walkthrough has "13: the finale". Since I didn't get that far I can't say for sure which number is right. The walkthrough does make it look as though things might get a bit tougher further on, but I doubt they get that much tougher. I don't think I'll be spending a credit on this one.

This game was good enough to purchase, but I think that was more because I was so hungry for a good HOG that something even moderate looked good. The graphics are good as is the story line. This is a pleasant, but not a challanging game.

This is exactly what I look for in a HOG....Love it....

The game wouldn't let me type in my name and also appeared in full screen 3/4 off the screen. I went in to change my screen resolution, made my changes, etc. and then chickened out. I shut down my computer. The next time I checked in the game let me type my name. I could then get into the game to change my options to whatever and I was on my way to play the game.

Where do you find this game? All I can find is the walk through for it.

Thanks

I don't get it...the main page says this is today's new release. And today is June 26. I've already purchased the game and am almost finished. What's with that? And, what's happened to "tomorrow's game today"?
