LOLOL.... well, I'm happy to see you still have a sense of humor about it (so to speak). I can't figure out why the game won't work for you. So sorry. I hope BF support can help you. You didn't really want to toss your cookies tonight anyway, did you?

I was doing pretty well until about the last 5 min. of the Demo when I noticed that I was getting dizzier than usual

I have played a lot of games in my time and a few that have this kind of movement so it really was not much of an issue til I noticed i was a little nauseous. Not a bad game, but i am saving my credit for "Lost in the City".

BTW, I have dizziness pills left over from a previous bout. Enjoy! Passes them around...

I liked that this game was in 3D and had no problem at all with the cam movement. I have played similar games before and I`m used to them. The game is a little to "easy" could have been more advanced puzzles. Ok game for me and I intend to buy it with a credit. The only thing I disliked was the voice acting.

Well I was about to buy it.... but it crashed with an Access Violation, just as the first conversation with the person trapped in the sarcophagus ends (repeatable).

I may try re-installing, in case it's just a glitch in the install... otherwise, I'm going to have to wait a few hours to speak to Live Chat.

What's irritating is that I've only just spent time re-formatting the hard-drive, and re-installing Windows etc.... usually that would fix this sort of thing happening (by clearing out the tail-end scraps of old drivers and who knows what thats left behind on the system after a year of updates, patches, and so on)

That said, I've been enjoying playing it (as far as I've got so far).

Hrmmm...

Happy to say after only a bit of disorientation at the beginning I had no issues with the motion. I did keep hearing the theme from "Tales from the Crypt" playing in my head tho...

It's ok, nothing to write home about, but worth the $7 for 3 hours entertainment. I kept feeeling that it was one of those games that just missed the mark and it could have been fantastic, but can't say what would have improved it. Well, firing the voice actress for Annabel would have been a start. The running back and forth over the same paths got a bit silly, especially when I had seen the things I'd need for the future so many times I knew exactly where to return to fetch them. The puzzles were all right, but pretty darn easy. The mini-games as well. EXCEPT I have never in all my gaming days so deeply hated a mini-game like that last mini-game with the sliding gems. HATE! Deep burning nearly in tears HATE! ...and of course no skip. Took me god only knows how many tries. I probably would be giving a better review now but since that's the last thing you do it left rather the bitter taste in my mouth.

So... eh. It's ok, the demo will let you know if it's worth your dollars. It was just around the 3 hour mark for me in duration. Your mileage may of course vary. It does have all the mini-games available for free play so I guess that's a bonus. So at the end of the day I give Annabel a not particularly enthusiastic:

Thank you Poodle. Am having problem with the mixed up picture mini-game - it keeps just swapping em around!!! That the feeling of Have 2 minutes left of demo so decision time and of course that would be a "well you just have to don't you"!!! Agree with you about spying out future things that will need to be collected but on the whole a little different to what has been on offer lately.

After reading all the posts about feeling dizzy and and being a vertigo sufferer I nearly didn't download it.
Boy am I glad I did!!!! I have giggled at the girls' spaced out eyes,cracked up at the things that are said,laughed my socks off at the masculine voice and nearly pmp at the way the characters move.
And how many of us after someone threatened to kill our lovers the best we could come up with would be "scoundrel"

And it's much cheaper than a trip to Disneyland after all how many rollercoaster rides can you get for 6.99?

I have coped with the movement by looking away when going from place to place -
So for me this is a must buy
