 Be Careful! The game doesn't work on most people's computers

| | See all Elizabeth1's reviews (1)

Make sure your computer meets the minimum requirements, there are loads of people (whole forums have been set up about it) who have new, good quality new computers and can not get the game to work, don't assume you'll be ok because you've never had a problem before or your computer's new. The most common problem is that people's computer's graphics cards do not exceed Geforce3 specifications, meaning that you can't get past merely installing the game. Check this list:

If you're a big fan of the tv series then you will love this game! You become a housewife on Wysteria Lane and try to unravel mysteries through all means, such as getting to know the main characters etc....I won't say any more else it will spoil the suprise. I was gutted when I uncovered all the secrets as it meant I had completed the game. I wish they would bring one of these out for every tv series they made. This game is a similar format and basis to the Sims but more sophisticated, exciting and engrossing. Any fan of the tv series will quiclky become hooked!

 Amazing!
