Just finished. Unsure how many chapters, but I'm thinking 50 some. It was very long. However, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Loved the story line and the games. Great game. Worth the moolah. Thanks, !!!!

Just finished playing the"game for tomorrow" and i agree Lost in the City does look and feel DARK. I prefer games that leave a happy feeling, and this one left me with a grim and grimy feeling. I was glad the game demo stopped when it did, cause I was worried about where the storyline was going... Also for me the visuals seemed very dark and grainy on my 17 in monitor. It was actually easier to find stuff not in the close-up mode.. And it would be nice if your pointer changed when you were using a tool. Oh yeah, What is the rating on this game? It certainly did not tell me...

I played the demo 5 minutes, and uninstalled it - didn't find my hands and legs there.
Small objects, penalties for hints, and where the hell are the batteries and the key???...

Now I am puzzled: 6/8 of the players liked it, 2/8 - didn't. May be I am wrong? If 3 people say you are drunk, then you are drunk indeed... .

I think I'll give it another chance...

Hi, finished this last night and I must say I enjoyed it. There are 40 chapters in all.
Some objects are hard to find and the hint system takes off points if an object is not found with 2 clicks.

Good storyline, but grim.

Worth the money.

I've never felt compelled to post before,but WOW this was a great game! MORE please! I especially loved the length... seems like a lot of the games I've been buying lately have been giving me only a couple of hours of play each... this one was perfect... but still left me wanting more! Thanks Big Fish, keep 'em coming!

I have Vista also. Make sure your video driver is up to date, and also be sure SP1 is installed! My games ran MUCH better after I installed SP1. I didn't realize it wasn't on the system when I got it, so used it a long time without. All the little glitchy things like jerky cursor, etc., were fine after installing SP1. Hope this helps. Also, I think if you have a 64 bit system, it can cause problems. I don't know, since mine is 32 bit.

That's an odd comment, moosemama, since there are only 40 chapters.

Now this is a good game!!! Finished the 60min demo. LOved it!!! Game played well, no glitch's Great story line, challenging mini games. Looks to be a long game given the amount of secrets you can buy. Also has a relaxed mode, so no timer but you earn less & can buy less secrets. Some objects are small, but not to bad. Seems to be very well done, good adventure/HO game! Can't wait to buy!!!!
Have'nt been this excited about a game in a long time!!
PLEASE BE Tomorrows game!!!!!

Pretty pretty please!!


Alternatively ......

This has to be the most mind-numbingly boring game I've played. (I lasted 10 minutes.) And you're wetting your pants over it? (Please don't ask me out on a date you sad ......)

Totally with you except that I lasted 10 minutes and I certainly won't be giving it another chance. This game is BORING!!!!! (Personally, I think whoever decided this was worth putting on BF was the drunk.)

I didn't like this game much. The story line was intriguing but the game play was boring. There was nothing challenging about it, excepting the lock picking puzzles that popped up now and again. Unlike other games I've played here, there is absolutely no replay value.

I'm not one for writing a negative review; in fact, this is the first time I've done so... I found the game that disappointing. I wish I would have spent my game credit elsewhere. JMHO.
