1.0 out of 5 stars Does not work!!! April 16, 2013
By lynleef

Listen to the reviews! The game is not working right. Mine installed fine but when I go to play story mode I get an error message and I am forced to close the game. I did a little research and found out the game is clashing with the current flash player. I am looking for a solution because I don't have much faith that Amazon will make good and either fix the issue or refund my money. If I find a solution I will post it.

And to the person that said its not an Amazon issue. I disagree! It is an Amazon issue because they sell it and their customers are getting a faulty product!

I don't want to hear the lame line from Amazon that "we are not responsible for games that don't work" Yes you are! YOU are putting the product out, YOU are receiving money for it, YOU have a responsibility to provide quality products to your customers. Selling cheep crap that doesn't work right and taking money for it is rotten! Take the game down instead of being sleazy scum that pretends it's the customers fault. That's being low class trash! And I don't want to here from anyone they don't know about it! Yes they do! They have complaints coming in, they know about it!

I just want to mention there is some weird note attached to this post about no voting buttons???? It must be something amazon put up??? I hope they realize I could give a rats @#$ about voting buttons.


Now I am not going to say this will work for everyone and if you do this it's at your own risk! BUT, it worked for others and it worked for me with no harm to my computer or the game!

First what you have to do is:

1. Install the game (no kidding)

5.0 out of 5 stars You have to figure out how to run it first! June 4, 2013
By Megan
Verified Purchase
This is an awesome game, but a lot of people are having problems with the career mode not working. You should go to your steam/steamapps/common folder to fix this problem; however, after clicking start, going to search, and then going into files and folders for my local disk C, I still couldn't find this folder. Eventually, I had to search for 'assets' (I have a Windows XP). After you find the 'assets' folder for Hometown Hero, you continue clicking 'downloads' then 'default' and then 'restaurants.' Once you've found each restaurant folder, open each one and delete the files (they should say 'comics') and waaala! It will magically work for all of you. This is the EASIEST way for the game to start working---you are very welcome. On a side note, I think it is ridiculous that Amazon hasn't shared this information with their customers since they are still selling the product.

1.0 out of 5 stars Staying away from these games from now on. June 17, 2011
By Richard
I have downloaded these games from the manufacturer and from Amazon. It is not an Amazon issue, it is the manufacturer. I have downloaded them and tried to run them with an immediate crash on XP and on Windows 7 it just stops loading, although it is present in the Task Manager. It is useless to try to get support, because when they contact you, they only ask you to run in different types of modes, all of which do not help. When they exhaust all possibilities, they state that it is the user's PC that is not compatible. These are Flash games, but because they have to wrap it in a troublesome DRM, it causes the issues. I will not be playing these games again. Too much of a waste of time and money to try to get them running.

2.0 out of 5 stars I have not get to play yet January 2, 2011
Verified Purchase
After I install this, it goes through the motion to open and start the game. then, the message pops up and shut down. I have windows XP home version and vista. Both computers did not let me play. I even disabled my virus program. Also, I tried with the computer that has no virus program, still did not work. I contacted tech support and followed all the suggestions, still did not work. I just want to play the game. however, I found out even stand alone CD does not work with my computers. I am so frustrated and sad.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poorly made game June 3, 2012
The game does not work. I don't know why it is offered. I have tried it on two different computers and both of them download then open and after you enter your name the game closes and experiences an error. Sad the game is offered but doesn't function properly and the problem has never been repaired.

3.0 out of 5 stars Didn't work... September 28, 2011
Verified Purchase
I always read reviews before buying something, this was the first time I didn't, and I should have. I had bought the disk in stores but it didn't work. So I bought the downloadable one hoping it would make a difference. This one also didn't work. I believe you have to disable your flash player. once you disable it the game will work fine. the clips won't work, but the game does. So If you buy this and the game exits after you click start the uninstall your flash player and try again. I still love diner dash though!
