Summary: I bought this for a gift and when my brother tried to play the cd, it requests an activation number. However, there is nothing in or on the case with this number. So he has a cd that he could only play for a few minutes.
Summary: This game would not install on my computer. I contacted the Big Fish people and was given some suggestions, but when the suggestions did not work,they said that because it was not purchased through them, there was nothing they could do to help me.
Summary: I am only about a third of the way through the game and I doubt I will bother to finish it. The plot moves so slowly that I lost interest. The music is noisy and annoying. There are tons of little games which might be good except that most of them give poor instructios on how to play them.
Summary: I would give this 4 stars for the game itself and a 0 for the technical snafu that came with it so I'm giving it 1 star so others can expect a better gaming experience if developers listen. I really enjoyed the game after I got it up and running.
Summary: I was very disappointed with this purchase. I purchased it because it was suppose to be compatible with Windows XP and the CD that I received was not. My nieces and nephews were visiting and they were all set to use the video games and it would not work.
Be very careful, if you consider to start (to pay) with Dark Orbit!

Summary: I played this game for a total of 45 minutes, then returned it to the store for a refund. The flow of the game is very klunky -- the narrator keeps repeating the same instructions over and over again. There is no ability to move around in the environments. Then, to top it all off, it crashed my PC.
