Summary: Three different aged people played part of this game, just to gauge our different reactions to it; myself, a 45 year old woman, my 18 year old son and my 8 year old son. None of us cared for it and here's why: DreamCatcher has produced three Agatha Christie games for the PC that are quite good...
Summary: I really wanted to like this game. Not only have I read all of Dame Christie's books, but I was born about 15 miles from her birthplace (Exeter, Devon, UK). I couldn't stand the story problems requiring you to figure out when someone arrived somewhere, mph, rate of speed, distance, etc.
Summary: I was not impressed with this game. I did not get very far. I just put it down and have never picked it up again. Maybe I might when I get some cheats (ha!ha!). I only have one set back on this game and it is the exact times of when someone was killed.
Summary: I had a bit of hard time with the way you interview people in the game & the limited way you can inspect each screen, but overall it was enjoyable. Having to actually think & work to solve a problem instead of just picking from multiple choice answers was a refreshing way of solving problems.
Summary: As an Agatha Christie fan, I highly anticipated this video game. After playing for half an hour, I decided I will not play it again. First, you will know who the murderer is if you have read the book. Second, the puzzles range from unclear to dumb (guess which date the murder will be committed?

Basically, in the game, you will tag along with Poirot and Hastings, helping them to investigate crime scenes, interview witnesses/suspects/family members,...
Clunky, annoying "game" but good text-based puzzles.

Summary: This has a rather frustrating interface and it deserves the low reviews. I can see that they wanted to make a puzzle game a bit like layton or phoenix wright, but it has been very poorly executed.
