Summary: Ahh, it hurts me to give this wonderful game just 3 stars, but I just can't give it more because of those darn bad quality objects. It was a very well thought out whodunnit-themed game, with great music, and scenes but for some reason a lot of the objects weren't of the same great quality as the other graphics. I personally hate using hints and will try my hardest to finds things on my own but in this game using them was inevitable.
Summary: Well, the game is from 2007 but I believe that the overall standard in terms of graphics were relatively high back then, too. While the game doesn´t look bad many of the hidden objects do. I often had to use all of my clues to find the objects in the scenes and after seeing what was meant I just scratched my head and thought: "huh? Never is THAT a -please insert an object name here-! It is....SOMETHING but no -please insert previous object name here- !
Summary: Agatha's "Death On The Nile" is enjoyable (but at times frustrating). The graphics are beautiful, the background sound isn't irritating, and the clue system and character interaction (static) are well done. That said, some of the hidden-object scenes could use the "magnifying-glass" approach. Several, while showing you that there are "10" items to find, actually make you hunt down maybe 20 things (for example, one item might really be "12 torn pieces of a photo").
Summary: . . . you like hidden picture puzzles. For me, it was rather boring especially when you search for the same objects over and over again. However, I played it with several family members, we kind of teamed up to see who can find an object the quickest, that made it fun. So it's all up to your preferences. It was a good game overall.
Excerpt: Agatha Christie: Death on the Nile Döden på Nilen är en deckare skriven av Agatha Cristie. I den är Hercule Poirot huvudrollen. Det är en man som gillar klara tankemönster, ordning och logik och löser gåtorna med sina små grå celler. I detta spel är man Hercule poirot och här ska man försöka hitta gömda ledtrådar och gömda föremål. Du ska även prata med vittnen. Det hela utspelar sig på ett lyxigt kryssningsfartyg.
Pros: Roligt till en början
Cons: Man tröttnar fort, ljudet ger mig huvudvärk, grafiken är si så där
