LindaMarion,

I agree with Rushes. Who knows? You do, but only if you actually play it.

What did the reviewers you usually read say? If you have reviewers you usually agree with, the odds are that their reviews of Anacapri should reflect your tastes and interests. If they've given you good guidance in the past, they most likely will give you good guidance now.

Cut loose! Go nuts! Open your wallet and blow twenty bucks! Anacapri could be the game you have been waiting for.

(Just don't let anybody know that I suggested it. I have a reputation as a meany to keep alive. lol)

There's a whole heap of ayes to the left and nays to the right if you read back over the last 4 pages. We've opinioned our socks off. grin If you're unsure about wanting to spend 20 dollars then you could check out the Trading Post, you never know, there might be one there for less $$$.

It's getting close to half price on Amazon. New copies can be had for $ 8.99 ($ 3.99 shipping) and used for $ 7.49 ($ 3.99 shipping). And it's showing up on ebay for even less. Or take Rushes's suggestion and go for the Trading Post.

As far as this goes there seems to be a lot of hard work invested on the part of the developers so I really hate to say that I'm now bored to tears with the game.

I didn't mind the simple launch screen & I wouldn't normally have minded the less than par voice acting if there had been a better script & the story wasn't so lacking in context to the amount of wandering round you need to do. I really wanted to like this game but there is really not enough 'game' in it to engage me & right now I've got a stack of other games that seem so much more appealing. smile

Hi Rushes, I agree that it is perfect to relax with if you don't want to play a game!. smile

I have wondered if I should purchase this game or not - after reading everyone's comments, I'm still not sure. Since I'm retired I probably have more time than most to download this game, but like most, I don't enjoy the walking, walking, etc. in a game. I have appreciated it when you can double click and the person runs to get there. So, since I've never been to Capri, this might be a good time to just take a chance and play the game. Think I'll look in a clearance rack tho.

Butterfly,

Couple points.

To the best of my knowledge, it is not available as a legal download.

As for walking, you don't. This is a first person game where you click to move from one still image to the next. This is also true (clicking from one frame to the next) when you are riding the bus. Once you have reached certain points, you can teleport back to other select points on the map.

Butterfly, if you're not fond of lots of in-game walking, then AnaCapri might drive you absolutely bananas! Even with the map, which moves you around a little faster, you'll still be clicking until your finger drops off.

But the game is so beautiful it's worth the loss of a finger. yes wink

As I'm abandoning the 'game' (with the thought of pursuing another time) I've tried to uninstall it the normal way, as it takes up a lot of space, via >all programs >set programs >change or remove programs & clicked on 'Anacapri uninstall' to get an immediate message that it was already uninstalled. Well, just like that? On looking in my hard disc program files I see that this is not the case & I'm having to delete this game manually. I'm now not impressed at all - there are only umpteen thousand files - I will never install this game again or anything else produced by the same developers.

Ouch, chrissie.

I don't usually uninstall from Change or Remove Programs. I go straight to the shortcut from All Programs where there's an uninstall option alongside the launch icon. Have you tried that too?

Well, sorry Rushes, the game wasn't listed in All Programs & when I looked there was no uninstall facility either in the program files or on the disc itself (incidentally, bought legitimately from Interact). There seems to be something called Scopa?

Scopa is a card game that one can play or not within the game.

Thanks for the info Mr Lipid, that was one particularly stubborn set of files that prompted a prompt to tell me another program was using them when I tried to delete them! duh

You can't just delete the game folder?

Not necessarily. If Windows has reason to believe some file is in use, the file will keep the folder from being deleted. It's actually a precaution, not a bug.

So, LindaMarion, made up your mind yet on Anacapri?

You mean an illegal download Mr. Lipid????? Just kidding. It might be a game, I could play once in a while to let the finger have a rest.

I opened all the folders Jenny & deleted the contents!

I've just done a search to see if there are any files left & discovered where the uninstall program had been hiding! slapforehead Any folders remaining are now empty!

An over-reaction on my part, I was tired & frustrated at the time! I may go back to it sometime in the future when I'm more in the mood to amble around. smile

For anyone else wishing to uninstall, just go to the "Start" menu, "All Programs," highlight "Anacapri the Dream," and the uninstall icon should pop up -- then just click on the icon.
