I have been a loyal and supportive customer of telltale games, purchasing the entire Monkey Island set w/ DVD and the BTF set. I have recommended your games to my friends who have also ended up buying your products. However after this awful experience I will sadly no longer be buying or recommending telltale games.
I played all the way to the Saloon part of BTF Part 5 when I decided to quit for the night.
[*] There was no warning message stating "You have not saved"
[*] There was no option to save
[*] All previous episodes have had an Autosave feature.
I quickly found out that after quitting I had lost all my progress. This is a completely unacceptable game experience.
I have read in a previous thread that I somehow launched the game "incorrectly". Yeah right. What kind of company allows their customer to devote hours of game time without auto saving, or allowing a save feature? Do you guys not have a Quality Assurance department? This should NEVER happen!
And to top things off, this game is not even good enough to replay again. The puzzles were not challenging, most of the game is dialogue and walking time sinks with only small amounts of creative game play. While the voice acting was extremely good, the writing felt stale and monotonous with very little humor as compared to other action adventure games like the Monkey Islands, Sam and Max, and Grim Fandango, Discworld, etc.
Not only will I never see the ending of the BTF series now, but I have lost all hope for future novel gameplay in the adventure game genre. Thanks TellTale. :mad:
