Summary: This is a lot more fun than I thought it would be. The graphics are really good...better that what I expected. Its just like a murder mystery. I am really into hidden object games and this is just perfect for me.
Women's Murder Club makes it onto the Nintendo DS but unfortunately gameplay is too easy!

Summary: With three video games from the "James Patterson Women's Murder Club" having been released on PC and as there is continuing demand for more casual games, specifically hidden objects games for the portable consoles, THQ released "James Patterson Women's Murder Club - Games of Passion" for the Nintendo DS. So, what is "Women's Murder Club"?
Summary: I like to play quick games on my DS and not sit there with it for hours at a time. This game is not hard but it does expect you to remember what has happened before which makes it difficult to just pick up and play for a few minutes every now and again. It will let you just guess over and over but that gets tedious and boring. The hidden objects aspect is not very difficult. The game doesn't flow as well as have others in this genre.
Summary: I agree with the other reviewers. The game is too short and is not challenging enough for those who tend to buy such games. It's certainly in no way related to the relative complexity and suspense of the Patterson novels and I've read all of them. I would call it a game to get on the cheap as a short time waster. Probably good for a flight rather than reading a book, though I would take one of his novels.
Summary: This game is short and boring. You really don't solve anything, you just play a seek and find puzzles the whole time and the story moves along. Then there is a useless majong bonus game when you win. Not even related to the story line. I sold this game as soon as i finished it. What a disappointment!!!
