Totally agree with ClassicalJazz. If the CEs had a couple of more hours of play, I would definitely buy them. Bought one, and was disappointed at spending $13 more and then not really getting anything for my money. Liked these reviews; will play the demo and see then. BTW, I am playing the demo of Asylum Conspiracy based on the reviews and am really disappointed - the HOs are easy to find and the Hint button fills so quickly that it's too tempting to just use it to progress. Makes me wonder - who is writing the reviews?

Does anyone at BFG read these reviews? Wizard of Oz, Journalistic Stories, and now this! What's going on? I thought they Beta tested these games. I signed up for that, and haven't received any game to test. If I had received this one, you know what my response would have been. So disappointed! Will the 5th time be the charm?

Wow! Feel great - thought I was the only one who thought Wizard of Oz was really bad (tried Easy, Normal and Hard and still coudn't find anything - and I'm pretty expert at HOG's)! This one takes second place. I can't figure out what to do in the scene behind stage, after viewing Gloria's body. And the dialogue! Who wrote this?

Yak, yak, yak. After reading some of these reviews, I was excited about playing the demo. How disappointing! Much too easy, hidden objects easy to find, puzzles easy to solve, And all the talk! I got bored really quickly. Won't even use a game credit for this one. Is it possible that, once I buy it, the game will be better? It did say I was only playing a sample version. What do you gamers think?

Same thing happened to me. Am waiting to hear back from BFG!

I reinstalled the game, downloaded a new DirectX, and still don't get anything at the railroad tracks in the Lincoln Chapter 1. No arrows, no **** scene, nothing. Any suggestions?

What a bore! Much too easy - even in the Normal mode, ****'s easy to find. I'm definitely spoiled after playing Dead Stories. This is a pass for me. If there are only 3 stores, and I finished the first one in under an hour, not worth the money.

One of the best games I've played in a long time. Great length, difficult hidden object scenes, excellent story line and a real challenge. I just finished playing it and can't wait to play again. Congratulations BFG, this is a winner!

Pa_tri_cia_: I have the same problem - I'm just starting the Lincoln chapter, and I get no hidden object scene, no arrows to move to another scene, nothing! I e-mailed customer service and am waiting for a reply.

Re full screen problems: I went into Options, clicked Full Screen, and it worked. My problem now is that I am at the railroad tracks, but nothing is happening, I get no hidden object screen, and no arrows to direct me anywhere else. I'm stuck. Help anyone?

Terrible game. Just closed out of the demo and will not go back. Hints stopped working and you can click forever without being penalized. I think I'll just play Magic Encyclopedia - Illusions again. Now that's a GREAT game.

I just completed a survey on a chat session I had, giving an A+ to the service representative. I couldn't agree more with the posters here. Customer service at BFG is the best!

Same problem for me. I can't get out of Chapter 2 because it keeps highlighting the boat when I click the hint button. I got the ladder, but am still missing 2 items from the old woman's room, and 2 items from the canal. Keeps saying Look somewhere else or it highlights the boat when I'm in the old woman's room. Help!

I'm getting really frustrated with the hints. I'm in Chapter 2, and when I'm in the old woman's room and click the hint button, it highlights the boat. I go back on the boat, click the hint button, and it highlights the boat again. Back and forth, back and forth and I'm not getting anywhere. Help! I'm still missing pieces from each scene.

Same problem! What do I do????

I'm reading these reviews at work and can't wait to get home to try it. I usually don't buy CEs, but this may be an exception (depending on how long it is). Will let you know what I think.

Way too easy! No challenges at all - the HOs are easy to find and the player is guided to the right answer. I won't buy this game.

Terrible game. Very disappointed. Who tested this?

I got the moons, feathers and spiders. How do I get to the spot where I pick up the brick and use the pliers? I'm lost here!
