A boring waste of time.

Summary: I am enamored with the Professor Layton games and I wanted to find something that measured up. This game does not. At no point are you given clues that can actually help you solve puzzles...half of the characters are suspects, half are possible heirs, and you can't actually figure it out on your own. Instead, you have to find items in every screen. That's it. There's no detection, and I think there was one actual "puzzle" in the entire game at the very end.
Summary: I sampled this game during an event where Nintendo had a free game-play station and it was so much fun at the time for the 15 minutes I played it. So, I decided to buy it on my own. Mind you, I am in my late 20s, but I thought it would still be fun. It was very simple and cheesy, so I lost interest. I think that any child or teen up to the age of maybe 13 would enjoy it immensely, but I really would not recommend this for adults.
Excellent Hidden Object Game But Crime-Solvers Should "Heir" On The Side Of Caution

Summary: After playing a few lackluster Hidden Object games, this reviewer finally got around to playing MillionHeir. MillionHeir is clever and well-done with nice details. The story: help find the missing millionaire Phil T. Rich or, if presumed dead, his heir and his killer. The storyline guides the gameplay without taking over it. The characters the player investigates all have clever names like Emmy Daynow and Cole Minor as well as backstories that link them to Phil T. Rich.
Summary: Mystery Case File: Million heir is similar to an I Spy game, I would recommend buying it new though instead of used. The game has "files" and as you find the stuff it unlocks more files, but if the game is used there are files already unlocked and there is no way to erase the opened files or start over. So you are just picking up were the first owner left off. Just NOT as fun a doing it all yourself. There is still a quick find game option.
Summary: I didn't know what to expect when I bought this game. I thought it would be a mix between Professor Layton and CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. It is neither. The game is VERY I-Spy; there are many random objects (turtles in trees, broccoli on roofs, ect) and you job is to find the specific items on the list. Once you find these, you 'interrogate' (which is essentially a small text segment). While the game is fun, it is not at all what I expected.
Summary: This was my first video game with my new DS lite. I love it. It is addicting. I could not put it down. It was fun finding hidden clues, as well as other crime scene play. By the way, I'm a gramma kid at heart.
