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.
It was fun for me and at the lower price point is worth a pick up

Summary: Now that the price point has dropped on this game and used copies are findable I picked it up. I liked the graphics and story art a lot. The game was very easy, almost painfully so. I liked some of the little mini game puzzles (in particular the virus one and the rotating one which was a challenge!) but the overall game play and seek and find parts were really easy.
Summary: James Patterson: WMC is a perfectly servicable game. The puzzles are pretty easy, so if you want something to pass away the time without having to work too hard, this is a good choice. I played while on vacation in Mexico, so it was fun to pick up before I went to breakfast without overtaxing myself. It's a combo of hidden object, logic (ones where you have to remember evidence) and a few other puzzles (one which made absolutely no sense though).
Summary: Women's Murder Club is a fun game, but you solve the mystery in less than four hours. You also have another mystery to solve using your own pictures on DSI, but again it doesn't take long. I spent most of my time playing the Majongg game just to feel like I was getting my use out of the game.
Summary: I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH THIS GAME I EXPECTED SEEK AND FIND GAMES BUT THERE WERE ONLY A FEW ALL IT WAS WAS MOSTLY INTERRAGATIONS. I EXPECTED IT TO BE LIKE VANISHING FILES OR THE MILLIONHEIR.
