Why pay 400 points for Minesweeper Flags when classic Minesweeper comes for free with almost any of the Microsoft operating systems? After playing the game for some time, I still don't have an answer. While Minesweeper Flags does offer some new features, I still wouldn't suggest that the average person pay for it. If I had to fashion a guess as to why anyone would try to charge people 400 points for a free game, I would say that they are greedy and that they hope at least a few people will pay for, what amounts to, new packaging".
