Summary: This game was very tedious and repetitive and not very intuitive. For less than $5, it is pretty good to kill some time, but it is not a game that I truly enjoyed. The beginning had some variety in setting, but the large majority of the game takes place on the train.
Summary: I loved this game. It was everything a good murder mystery game should be. It was challenging but not too impossible to figure out. The only weakness I thought was too much conversation between characters. I think it was alot more interactive and realistic than "And Then There Were None".
Summary: "Murder on the Orient Express" is thus far the best game in the Agatha Christie game series. The enviroments are fun and well-animated, the voice-acting is good overall, and while there are some unlikely puzzles, the game isn't horribly frustrating.
Summary: I think this PC game deserves a high rating. The game plays fairly straight forward (there are some tough spots), as an adventure game is suppose to be. One truly needs to be skilled at adventure game, as one should know, to play such a game.

Summary: The special effects are great. The game play is fun and keeps you thinking that you don't want to stop playing. It can get a little hard at times but that's what I liked about the game. It keeps you guessing. Agatha Christies' book also comes with the game. I loved that and read it in a day.
Summary: In the game I got, a book came with it, but my review is based only on the game. This game has a good plot, but some of the puzzles are REALLY hard. Story-You are on a train making sure that a famous detective (Hercule Poirot) is comfortable on the train. Basically you're an escort.
Nancy Drew fans might find this a bit dark and boring

Summary: Despite this game's amazing graphics and ultimately an intriguing story line, the game play was not only monotonous (looking in overly similar compartments for clues--which made it hard to tell which had been searched and not) and tedious (assembling certain articles in inventory to create odd...
Summary: I played most adventure games out there and most recently the awakened, tunguskas and orient express. and finally we have an excellent game. Minimal walkthrough need, solid graphics and an involving atmosphere make orient express a classic, maybe this was in its dna as 10 years ago broderbund...
