  1. Game crashes all the time
    by Naosei, United Kingdom - Jul 2nd 2014

    You already have two posts stating the game crashes all the time. Can you please fix it because some people actually bought the game to play it and not to be given credit to buy another game (If I wanted another game I would buy it as well with money). Don't download this game by all means. I will post again if the game is fully operational with no bugs giving a good review if its deserving of one.

    If they don't solve the problem that the game has, which is that crashes continuously, please don't buy it!!

  3. Crashes very often
    by Doudli, Canada - May 1st 2014

    I would like to enjoy this game, but the Mac version is so bad. Crashes all the time, even hangs the OS. No help with mouse over items, no idea what is needed to progress, no clue given on how to achieve basic tasks. Very poorly done.
