Summary: I really love mysteries and found thus quite entertaining and sometimes a little challenging. I did solve it pretty quick though and once you solve it there is nothing more as with many mysteries.
Summary: The game was interesting, with amusing characters and a fun story. The only problem I had with it was the length of the game play story wise. I'm usually a fast gamer, but it shouldn't take me less than half a day to finish it (and I wasn't playing it consistently). But for the game itself, pretty good.
Summary: For whatever reason, I had this game on my wishlist for some time. I finally broke down and purchased it and am thrilled that I did! My only regret? Having waited so long. I love hidden object games and am a bit picky on ones that really catch my attention and keep it. Murder in Venice definitely has caught and held my attention.
Summary: Murder in Venice pulled me in from the first scene. The story is easy to follow and the incorporation of the hidden object scenes often added to the story line. The characters are stereotypical, but the graphics are great. I liked the addition of minigames as a welcome change from looking for hidden objects. Getting a high score on the minigames was very challenging. I enjoyed the added challenge of finding chess pieces in all the scenes to earn an award.
Summary: This is an awesome game. There are typical hidden object screens with interesting and new minigames. My vision is not that great (20/40 with an uncorrected astigmatism) and I had little trouble finding the items eventually. It is not too difficult and not too easy. The story makes sense, but "talk" scenes are not ridiculously long. This is one of the most enjoyable HOG's I've ever played.
