Summary: ...but I can't, because I can't play it. It crashes as soon as it tries to load the tutorial hotel, or pretty much anything else, actually. I have XP SP3, up-to-date video drivers, etc. I've spent an hour or more reading tech forums and gaming forums, and basically they say the problem is unfixable. Don't waste your money on a game that just plain won't run.
Summary: I got this game yesteray and was geeked to install it only to find that it crashed as soon as it loaded and I hit tutorial. I wish I had read the reviews before I purchased it. Now Amazon is sending me a new and I don't know for what...I'll just send both of them back and get something else. I'll be reading all the reviews before I purchase another game.
Summary: This game has the prospect to be a lot of fun if you like sim games, but the controls to move the camera are annoying. They aren't all intuitive, and once you learn them you have to be very precise because the camera moves quickly. I have a decent computer that can handle many graphics intensive games, but it lags when I am moving the camera which makes it hard to get the angle you are looking for. It also re-sets your angle fairly often and you have to change it back.
Summary: I read the reviews before I bought "Hotel Giant" and was somewhat concerned over the negative feedback the game had received, but I decided to order the game anyway and try it out for myself. I received the game by UPS this afternoon, and I tried it in my new computer that has Windows Vista, sure enough the game installed but constantly kept crashing so you could not even begin to play it. Then I thought, maybe it wasn't compatible with Vista after all.
Summary: I bought this game in the store. It was marked as compatible for Vista, however it is NOT. Do not buy this game if you have Vista. It will continually crash and not work. I have not been able to find a patch to fix this problem as of yet. This company should be ashamed for selling something that does not work!
Summary: So, first of all, let me just say that I REALLY love this game. It's a great idea and it's a blast to play. It's really fun to totally customize lobbies, hotel rooms, restaurants, health clubs, bars, etc. I like how you can view the floor of a building from the top, from the perspective of a guest, or isometrically. I love the tycoon aspects of being able to create advertising, making up package deals, setting prices, looking at market research, and so much more.
Summary: I bought this and was exicted to get a new pc game. I didn't think to check the OS compatability b/c I figured it would work on my brand new pc. OMG!!! was I upset it truly is a $10 coaster. I have Vista and it will not run constantly crashes before you can even start playing and I am very upset. DO NOT BUY THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!! This company should be ashamed of themselves for selling a product that is not compatable with the most up to date OS.
Summary: Just installed this game, thinking I'd get a nice dose of nostalgia mixed in with a pretty solid business sim...only problem is it won't run properly on Windows XP SP3. No sure what the problem is but the tutorial...crashes. Hovering over the toolbar at the bottom left in a random game...crashes. And don't bother trying to get a patch. This was published by JoWooD, a well-known German publishing house that publishes unfinished games and barely if ever supports them.
Summary: I bought this game, thinking it's an easier game of building hotels, similar to SimCity games, but it isn't. There wasn't any instructions included. So I had to print out 25 pages of it, knowing I'd not remember how to play it very well..that took quite a while. As I played it, I had trouble navigating- the camera moves too fast. I did not understand what I had to do next when I finished the first task I was to do.
