Showing 1-5 of 5
Different that previous Agatha Christia Adventure Games
5 April 2010
Summary: I loved the first three Agatha Christie PC games: And Then There Were None, Murder On The Orient Express, and Evil Under The Sun. These games were wonderful and I was expecting this game to be just like these three. BIG DISAPPOINTMENT!! This is just a seek and find game, similar to the child's books I Spy. If you are looking for great Agatha Christie games, buy the Agatha Christie: Triple Murder Mystery Pack.
Summary: This game was awful. I, like a few other reviewers, had bought all of the Agatha Christie games and I expected this one to be the same. The box is very misleading, it makes you think this game is like the others but it is not. If you love hidden object/puzzle search games, then you'll love this one. I still played it anyway b/c I spent $20 on it. I beat it in just a few hours. It was so easy, it was pathetic. They had no spoken dialogue or anything.
Summary: In the past I have purchased other Agatha Christie PC games: And Then There Were None, Murder on the Orient Express, and Evil Under the Sun and I enjoyed those games quite a bit. I bought this one expecting the same and if you look at the cover of Death on the Nile it APPEARS as if this game is going to be like the others. It isn't. It's a hidden picture game, a virtual Where's Waldo.
Summary: Agatha Christi's Death on the Nile is not a game - no step by step figuring out 'who done it'. It is merely a hunt for the hidden objects and reading (I have read the book). Having bought all the other Agatha Christi games, I was expecting the same quality. There should have been more information provided on the item. What a disappointment. I always looked forward for the next game to come on the market but now I will not buy another.
Summary: I purchased the previous Agatha Christie games: And Then There Were None, Murder On The Orient Express, and Evil Under The Sun and enjoyed all three adventure games. I thought that Death On The Nile was a lower-priced similar game in the series. It's not! I played this hidden object game before as a download. The cover makes it look deceptively like the other role-playing games.
