Summary: This game played fine on my HP Laptop. It has a flaw in it, that makes it error, so I had to play it from the disc the whole time. However, it isn't that much more work to do that, so it wasn't a big issue. Once I realized I had to play it from the disc, I had no more problems. The game was fun. I really liked the mystery element. Gardening was pretty easy. The cooking was pretty easy until I got to the last level. The mystery was really fun.
Summary: I got this game as a gift. The first disc didn't work but we exchanged it without any problem and the second game worked perfectly. I absolutely love playing it. The concept of creating your own storyline and living out episodes is so much fun. You can steal, seduce, shop, and hire a maid and gardener....it has provided hours of entertainment. It is worth muddling through the technical difficulties to get it installed. I would recommend it to everyone.
Summary: I love this game. It is fun and mysterious at the same time. I have no trouble working it despite other's reviews. Sure it freezes up from time to time,but the game is so good, I don't care. I love how it is divided into episodes, with little scenes at the beginning and end. There are so many twists and turns that make the game so interesting. Definately worth the money that my parents spent.
Summary: with all the other reviewers.. I bought this game at Target for $18, installed it on my HP laptop, the install process took about 30 minutes or so, but the game works just fine. It does have a very long load time between certain scenes, but its not "end of the world" long, I take the chance to get up and stretch my legs or get a drink or something.
Summary: I had such a good time playing this game. It's almost better than the show because YOU, the audience member, are now part of the show. Not only is it fun to garden, decorate, cook, clean and shop during the game, but it's sooooo much fun watching the mystery that surrounds YOUR character unfold. I think my jaw literally dropped a few times throughout the progress of the game.
Summary: from the moment i installed this game i have been addicted the story lines are great and to be involed in the story and to start of with a secret of my own.. the only bad thing about this game is when you make your family you dont have a major choice of people to choose from and you cant pick if you want a boy or a girl.. you just get a boy and you have to be married... but dont let that discourage you from buying the game thats only a minor setback..
Summary: The Desperate Housewives game is very fun actually. Even people who don't know the show will still enjoy this game. Or fans of the Sims will like this except this game may even be better. Basically, you are a new housewife on Whisteria Lane with your husband and son. You go through the game solving your own life's mystery and helping the other people.
