Reviews and Problems with Women's Murder Club: Games of Passion
Showing 1-6 of 6
The Most Redeeming Quality is the Mahjong
3 July 2010
Summary: I purchased this game about a month ago. As a busy working mom, I don't have a ton of time to sit around playing my DS--and I still finished this game within a couple of days. The "murder mystery" portion of the game is very simple, and is over and done within a few hours of play. The most redeeming quality of this game is that even when the story itself is complete, you can still take advantage of the mahjong portion of the game.
Summary: I love puzzle games and hidden picture games. This game has a very small amount of both, though neither is challenging. The story is fairly limited. I've read James Patterson's novels- they are excellent. This game is not. I finished it in about 3 days. There were also 2 different times that the game froze and I had to start the chapter over.
Summary: I was very very disappointed as I have Womans Murder Club(Twice in a Blue Moon,A Darker Shade of Grey, and Death in Scarlett) for the PC.I have yet to finish these yet ,but like the other reviewers of this game I finished it in less then 2 hours. Hannah Montannah took me way longer to finish than that and so did Cheetah Girls.I was much more impressed w/the new Professor Layton.In Love WMC but not for the DS I pre-ordered it and waited forever to even get it and then...
Summary: I enjoyed parts of Women's Murder Club, and I can see how fans of the books/TV series might really love it while it lasts. Mostly a seek-and-find with a few puzzles and some Q/A gameplay (testing your memory of the case and logical skills) thrown in the mix, the game had a lot of potential. I liked some of the more original seek-and-find prompts like "find all of the objects that could be used to strangle the victim.
