love it, can’t wait for more

I originally saw the ad for the game on instagram and I couldn’t have been more excited!! I immediately downloaded it and told my sister and friend who both love criminal minds as well. took a long time to download which made me even more excited bc I knew it was gonna be a great game with good graphics if it took so long. the first chapter went by smoothly and I loved every bit of it (of course I wish it could be a little more interactive and I was hoping for Derek Morgan and Aaron Hotchner to be in the game but then I figured this was most likely based on the new cast). afterwards I was a little reluctant when I finished the chapter and it asked me to pay $4.99, but it makes sense to me: these creators put in so much work to make a game for criminal minds lovers like me, they give a free chapter so that the gamers can experience the game and see if they like it or not, then pay a small amount for THE REST OF THE GAME. it doesn’t seem that much for me so I paid it and the rest of the episodes were just as fun and interesting. I eventually ran into the last episode available and it said “stay tuned for more episodes” so I’m waiting patiently but I do really wanna know when the game will come up with more. is the game going to notify me when they’re ready, do I have to update the app or keep checking in?? overall very great game and I’m very satisfied

Major waste of time!

It’s a major let down and major waste of time. I expected to be much more interactive as the characters in the show are. I didn’t even bother going through every episode in the first chapter. The only thing in this game to do is basically watch the initial crime, read the script, appoint characters to task, occasionally take pictures, very rarely find the evidence on my own, or have Garcia look things up on her computer, and after that not much to do at all. I was excited to hear there was a Criminal Minds game out now, but it really was a major let down! It’s the type of game where there’s very little interactions, input, and there’s no choice of any kind of customization. Therefore, it really wouldn’t be worth paying for the game at all. Thankfully I didn’t buy anything because I read the first chapter is free. I decided to give it a chance at least and was very disappointed. Do not waste your money if you like games with more interactions and choices. I will not be downloading any other games from this game developer. Oh, and it goes without saying that this game isn’t at all challenging. I love challenging games, and this isn’t one of them. If Criminal Minds come out with another game, I may give it a try as long as it’s not with this game developer. I do love the show, very much, but again this game is not one I’d choose. I would say don’t bother with this game.

Don’t waste your time

Please don’t waste your time or money downloading this game. That’s right - it may look like a free game but I promise you it isn’t. After the hype of completing the first awesome episode, I was so eager to jump into the next (much like how I am with the actual show). I’m watching a really interesting cutscene when a message pops up notifying me that I have to pay to play any more episodes. I would like to tell the developers to do some research before releasing an app where you have to pay to win. For users like myself, any game where you have to pay to play is a HUGE turn off. Not going to lie, when I read the message, I immediately exited and deleted the game. May I make a suggestion? Okay. I completely understand the goal of trying to make money off a well put together game. But there are ways to do it where you don’t have to make every user who wants to move on and dig deeper in the story use money to do so. Input ads so that you get the revenue of that plus extra features such as a remove ads tool. Great effort on the game, poor choice to cause a lot of users to delete the game immediately.
