This Game Sucks

[Post New]by jscrafts on Aug 23, 09 3:55 PM
Used up 15 minutes of the game and it would never load. All I got was a black screen and the tinkling sounds but never got to play it at all. Have never had a problem like this with a game before except for one of the beta test games.

This is a no go game for me.

First, you're too kind.

Second, you didn't miss anything. A blank screen has more entertainment value.

downloaded this game twice to see if I could get the thing to work, but still no go. Have given up in exasperation, can't be bothered. Haven't had this problem before. Have had to turn my laptop off about 5 times just to reboot.

Really you didn't miss anything -one of the worst games I've ever tried. You'd have to pay ME to get me to play any more of it.

Same here. When a game gives you this much of a problem from the get go...forget it!

:thumbdown totaly agree! I am old, slow, and uncoordinated and even I finished this one in one day. Way too easy and it takes for ever to load. Save your money.

I have the same problem. The help said I had to download the updates for my drivers. So I did, but no difference. To start the play is already so frustrating, I stop.

I couldn't agree more! Even if you do get it to work (I did)
it sucks because they change your cursor to a knife, and it
never wants to work! I hate when games change my cursor!
WHY do they do that?? It always messes things up.
I wouldn't buy this game if it was the last HOG on earth lol
I got fed up after about 7 mins of clicking and stuff not going,
and hitting the hint, just to find out i was right to begin with!
Definately Uninstalled it

It might be that you have cookies stored up in your system and it needs to be deleted to help it to go faster or your internet security protector is keeping it from loading.

I had no problem loading it, however I was able to beat it within 45 minutes (glad for the free 1 hr trial) dont waste money buying the game if by chance you get past the 1st hour, it will be 5 minutes maybe til end of game

There are definitely some bugs in this one. My version loaded with no problem but about 15 minutes into it, the hints stopped working! It took the hint away from me but never actually showed me where the object was hiding! Also, doesn't anyone ever proof read this stuff? It's so apparent that it has been badly translated from another language, the grammar is horrible, which I find very very annoying!

It's a no-go for me!

Seems like every other day someone can't get a game to load, but in the grand scheme of things, 99% of the time I don't have trouble loading a game.

I must say for those that refuse to tread further, you missed nothing.

I beat the game (yes beat) in 45 minutes (with getting up for 5 minutes to attend to my nephew) and only met one puzzle I felt compelled to skip. The ending is so LAME. He proposes! Wow. He found the gold! Two screens and that's it. No fanfare. Course with this game I didn't expect it.

Anyone remember on NES/SNES how all the Mario games had these fairly elaborate winning sequences that made you feel it was worth your effort? I haven't found too many games here that do that.

I agree, I played the trial game then bought it and finish almost as soon as I had purchased it. The game didn't have enough levels

We also should have figured it out by how long it took to download this one. I'm used to it taking at least a few minutes to load up, this time, mere seconds...should have known it would suck!

relic hunt is not playable, all black screen.
when you look very closely you can find the button: play, but than you cannot see anything.

Sucks? It doesn't even have that value. You are told to find 20 pieces of bamboo and they are all in plain sight, you click on them and they stay right where they are. You hit on the hint button and it makes a sound, but the arrows that pointed to items in the beginning has suddenly become invisible. Most irritating is the promise of "mind-boggling" games. My cat could solve these. NOT worth time to download. I want a refund on my time!
