There is a lot of repetition in this game going between certain areas to gather resources to build/upgrade stuff. Wasn't bad and I did play the entire demo, but not enough of a challenge for me to buy.

VERY Repetitive !
Sorry ... I think I'm the only one who did not like ... but I felt in the film" Modern Times", of Chaplin!
I thought I would go insane going from the Forest to the Lake and from Lake to the forest... nonstop .... collecting the same things: grapes, wood, bamboo ...
You can only pick 10 items at a time ... after the tenth time doing the same thing, at the same place, I had no patience to go ahead!

My fault, I bought this game when it was on offer on the strength of its 5 stars, due to having limited broadband allowance. Never again will I do this after buying this game! It involves going to very similar locations, collecting the same objects (wood/bamboo etc). I am genuinely amazed how it got 5 stars, I personally found it dull, boring and repetitive. I have kept doing a bit more, hoping it will improve, but no luck. I do understand everyone is different but this game was a huge disappointment to me.

Not a Building Game, Just Collecting the Same Things Over and Over
Hard to believe some of these rave reviews. This game consists of nothing more than going to the same few place and clicking on the same types of items over and over again.
There is no strategy involved, you don't even have the fun of placing buildings or even building them, really. The game just keeps telling you how much of a certain resource you need for the next building, you go click on the resources, and the game does the rest.
"Colossal" waste of time.

Would have been 5* but...
This game could have been excellent with a few tweaks. When a game gives you endless sparkles pointing out where all the items you are looking for are, then it's not a game but a right drag! Why didn't they consider the hint system enough?
Its kind of TM meets HOG, and I would have bought it in a nano second if the devs didn't think of their audience as too stupid to think for themselves.
It's not a HOG when there are no hidden objects! At least not ones with flashing stars all over them. Ended the trial after 45 mins as that's all I could take!

Tedious, tedious, tedious
Like others here, I bought this on the strength of the glowing 5-star reviews. Never have I been so bored so quickly. I agree the graphics of the HO scenes are fine and relaxing, but that's its only saving grace. I ploughed on, thinking it must improve, but in order to build or upgrade any of the village buildings you have to find a multitude of the same resources. After 4 hours I was still revisiting the same scenes over and over to pick up dollops of beige (clay), dollops of brown (ore) and brown bits (twigs, logs and bricks). Arrrggghhhh... This is the first BF game that I'll be deleting from my pc, and it'll be a pleasure to do so.
