and inferno also.sorry if i nag but i really would like to know what the experience players think on it.

Whether you like the game or not depends on what you buy the game for. What things do you expect out of a game? What do you want from this particular game?

If you look at the ***box of the US version***, you see Anacapri in big letters. The pictures on the game box are of scenic vistas that you will see in the game. There isn't a single person in any of the pictures. There is a picture of a postcard to Nico inside the foldout cover and a bit of text mentioning the mystery of the obsidian disk, but the impression you get from the game box is mostly that it is about exploring the beautiful scenery, and that impression is accurate. If you can enjoy that aspect, you'll enjoy the game. Not that the story is bad or anything, but where the game really shines is in the excellent photography of one of the most beautiful places in the world. The game is named "Anacapri: The Dream" and not "The Mystery of the Obsidian Disk" or "The Adventures of Nico N."

lol Well, I'm with you on that one.

Back to the subject matter. I'm wondering if chrissie installed AnaCapri (all 7GB of it) and if she is enjoying it so far.

Hi Rushes, I installed the game this morning when I had 20 minutes to spare before setting off to work! No kidding 'this will take several minutes'! I ended up getting a later bus! lol I haven't started playing yet - perhaps later or tomorrow evening.

Thanks MaG for the link to the trailer, I missed your post earlier! I tried it but since the trailer was a dowmload I thought I might as well just install the game. I had to tiptoe into work this morning hoping no-one noticed I was late. lol

Ah, yes. The 'long install' effect. All of us who've played it know what you're talking about. smile

To be fair MrLipid, it does say in the manual 'the game may take 15 minutes or more to install.....' Just wish I'd read that beforehand! smile

I would love to see the machine which only takes 15 minutes. smile

While I don't remember how long my install took -- not the hours that some have reported -- that may be an effect of copying the entire disk to my hard drive first and then installing from the hard drive. Worked like a charm.

Hi MrLipid, to give me time to give the game a fair shot & in view of other arrangements, I don't think I'll be able to do that before Sunday. Watch this space! smile

It's a bit of a nuisance I know, but life keeps doing that - interrupting my games! lol

Well, this is an excellent thread! From what you write I will definetely play it. From one hand we have the boring long, long walking and on the other hand the beautiful sightseeing and the interesting story. I will totally agree that each one of us according to his general experience (not only in games but in the real life, too!) will like/dislike any game that it's installed in the pc. The truth remains that in general some aspects of the game will be beloved when some others will be discussed for further conclusions throughout the good and experienced members of GameBoomers. Thanks for sharing your thoughts here.
