Well! I uninstalled the game and reinstalled it. It worked fine until I went down the hatch. Then the game froze and I had to use the Task Manager. When I went back to play the game it said the game or something was corrupted and I needed to restart the game with a different name. Guess that is it for this game. I will not start again after all the problems I have had with this game.

I would like to get past the first five minutes of the game, it froze three times. I was on the trail version, using windows 8.

WOW. You can not get very far, very fast. I've gotten VERY frustrated. I thought it would be a good game, and it might be. I downloaded it right away. I want my money back. It keeps freezing, especially during the puzzles. I don't even want to bother with it any more. Obviously I'm not the only one. I've only ever complained about one other game. Do I address this on here about a refund for this game?

Game freezes all the time..there´s no way i can play..it kicks you out and you have to start again. i think the main problem is that it does not load between scenes

Initial install - got message that trial was over. Uninstalled and installed again - got usual trial minutes.

Started game - got Blue Screen (BSOD).
Rebooted PC (Win7x64).
Started game - got black screen and had to kill process via TaskMgr.

Uninstalled game via GameMgr - got unusual messages. First one: "The program or feature \...\Obscure Legends - Curse of the Ring\uninstaller.exe cannot start of run due to incompatibility with 64-bit versions of Windows. Please contact the software vendor to ask if a 64-bit Windows compatible version is available." Second message was similar.

Above info sent to BF Customer Service.

UPDATE: Game is working well today. Go figure. Started up PC. Reinstalled the game. Plays fine. Exited and restarted it multiple times, worked fine every time. I have no idea what 'shook it loose'. Will not go through uninstall process yet. Will likely use PCC on Monday to get this game. I wrote back to CS with this update.

ETA: Per the other reviews, I will wait to purchase until there is a fix for the freezing issue. I have not run into that myself, but given my initial issues, I think it best to wait.

Hey Everyone,

I'm sorry to see there have been so many issues with the game freezing.

This has been escalated to the developer and they are currently working on a fix. If you would like to troubleshoot the issue or contribute to the development of a patch, please contact out Tech Support Team with a Dr. Felix Report and one of our Reps can look into this for you.

Thank you very much for your patience while this gets resolved.

Thank you WendWalker. Will we be informed when a fix is available? I'd really like to purchase this game, but do not want to go through the whole install, have problems, uninstall thing again

This game was recommended at a chat site from a past BFG member posts, well all lot of us flushed CCC members are there. I did not do the demo when it was first offered as it did not look that interesting. So download the game to give it a try! Was amazed as I wanted to purchase it, but had to stop and take care of RL!

Well I did not get the freezing problem but after install I played about 30 min of game, no problems!...
THEN
That evening when I went to return to finish but had a big red X on toolbar, Microsoft Windows Defender notification that this game was corrupt and if I wanted to send report. Yes! I did. Went to my manager and uninstalled, then double checked to delete from C drive.

Of course I came here on the 'tips for game' and read all the problems, will take a 'fix' notification before I purchase. I enjoyed the game and was considering it a 'purchase'. Will wait!

Lets...

I am so worried that BFG allowed a game to be sold or tried without any trials -we all get the chance to beta but BFG SHOULD check what we are buying - so many games from BFG are having problems for players and all we do is comment on BFG problems - why should we have to do Dr Felix - the game should run with no problems - if there are probs - why is it us who have to sort it - Its BFG and dev of the game cant to sort why should we BFG just listen to us - we are your customers -ok

Game kept freezing--- was slow loading. Hitting esc helped but the game finally lost all memory and tossed me out. Am disappointed as it seemed like a decent game. Will just delete it.

Same problems everyone else is having...game keeps throwing me out and saying the save file is corrupted. Stupid me, I went ahead and bought the glitchy thing. It seems this is becoming the rule rather than the exception these days. I wish BF would do more quality control on these games before allowing them to be released. I know they would send me a credit code in a moment if I complained to their support, but I really would just rather have a working game.

Thank you Wendwater. I also must agree with the other reviewers here. These games should not be thrown into the pond with these types of problems. Makes me a bit uneasy about downloading some of these

Me too, it kept freezing up, different points each time. Every time I started, it went to the beginning again...this is the 4th time, and I'm NOT going to try again.
You need to fix it. I had wanted to play, it was pretty good up until it acted up, and now, at least, I know it's a lot of people
