Ratings and Reviews
All aspects very well done; a brilliant game
ABC Murders is an intellectually stimulating and challenging game. It is a famous linear plot (adapted from Agatha Christie), but the execution in this game is brilliant. You really need to pay attention and use your mind to think about the motives and circumstances of the murders in order to proceed. Also, the cinematography/photography of the game (it is 3D with an ‘illustration’ filter) provides a stylish journey into memorable early tweintieth century UK locales. By the way, it is all ‘voiced’ and the voices are actually well acted! Not the usual video-game hyperbole. I recommend without reservation. (For those who liked the original Gabriel Knight, this is modern relase that delivers on a similar level.)
Challenging and enjoyable. Longer than expected, not a complaint. Well worth the time and money.
A very dull and klunky game
It was not very obvious how to make Poirot move around the room or down a street. More than a few times I completed a game correctly but had to exit and start over before the program accepted it was complete. Most of the women in the game look like Kristin Scott Thomas and the animation of all characters was very simlistic.
My grey cells were tired of this game after the first 15 minutes.
I can’t think of one thing I liked about this game.
