Summary: Didn't have any problems with freezing or anything, as mentioned by a previous reviewer. However, this game is not in any way entertaining. I love the show and couldn't wait to play the game, but it was a big let down. I played this game for about 2 hours and got completely bored with it. There isn't any real challenge to this game. You follow their goals and cannot proceed until you do what they want. Completely disappointed.
Summary: I bought this today in hopes I would enjoy a lazy Friday in front of the PC, but I haven't been able to play it because my computer doesn't have the proper video/sound card, which apparently from what I've read from others, nobody else seems to have this technology on their PC either. Too bad for me, I didn't read these reviews until after the fact. I found a bypass code online and actually installed the DH software, but then when I went to click play, nothing happened.
Summary: I'm sure this game is loads of fun...unfortunately, like 80% of the people who bought this game, I cannot play it because my computer's video card is not up to the game's standard. Do not buy this game unless you know for a fact you video card meets the requirements! Though Buena Vista claims it is, this is not clearly stated on the box and it is very misleading.
Summary: I was very happy to receive my order in a very timely manner but tried to install it in all 4 of our computers (2 desk top 2 lap top) and none of the computers are able to run the game. The newest of the laptops is only 1 year old and there is something lacking in all the computers to download the game into the computers.
Summary: I was so excited when I saaw this being released that I ordered it right away. Of course, I checked to make sure my computer fit the requirements. I get the game (and I have a computer that is less than a year old), try to install the game and I keep getting error messages saying that the program would not run because the computer did not meet the requirements!
Summary: Buena Vista Games mis-represented the minimum requirements listed on the cover of this game. We have 3 name brand laptops and one name brand desktop. ALL meet the listed minimum requirements and NONE can run this game because they have the wrong video cards. This was a Christmas gift to me from my sons. What a disappointment.
Summary: I bought five of these games and not one of the people I gave it to can run it. Now I am out the $100 and all customer service can say is take it back or wait for an unspecified update that may or may not be coming. Don't buy it.
Summary: When I first got this game I played it for a short time twice, I couldn't understand why anyone would play, so gave up. I decided to give it another go and found it slightly interesting. It does run on my computer, which is lucky compared to other reviewers who can't run it at all I suppose, except I have run in to so many bugs in the program I can't play it anyway. Basically you are a housewife and you have a Husband and Son.
Summary: I just bought the Desperate Housewives game and was pretty excited to play it. When I went to install it, it said that my system did not meet some of the requirements. Therefore, I am not sure how fun this game is, anyhow, I then looked up some information to find that tons of other people are having the same exact problem as me. I called the company that made the game and they did offer to replace the game because I cannot play it.
