  • Excerpt: Agatha Christie is known as the ‘Queen of Crime.’ Apparently some find her stories worth a game, but as we know from movies turned into games, successful books aren’t necessarily successful games.

  • Conclusion: Perhaps the worst aspect of this game is that you, the main character, do little to actually determine the murderer. Instead you are really Poirot’s minion. The ending and solution inevitably comes from him, with a little input from you.

  • Conclusion: So, does the game follow the book to a "T"? I have no idea. I wanted to play the game without having preconceived knowledge. However, I have heard that it does an admirable job and only a few things were dramatically changed for playability.

  • Summary: A game that captures little of the excitement of the story, but much of the repetition of detective work.
  • Pros: Graphics are decent; voice work is well done; includes a copy of the book.
  • Cons: Various design flaws and overly repetitive; poor interface; took a few liberties with the plot.

  • Excerpt: If the name seems familiar, it should. This game is based on the famous murder mystery by Agatha Christie and follows the storyline along that railway. You play the role in this story of Antoinette Marceau who is not a character in the book, but one made for the game.
