Summary: it gets a bit dull with all the tasks you have to do. For example, taking prints and having to match them with every single character. It's just plain frustrating. Sometimes things are not clear on what you have to do even though the checklist is completed. There are a lot of tasks you have to uncover in the inventory for a level to be completed. Things that you have to find are easily missed if you don't pay attention.
Summary: I have long been an ardent Agatha Christie fan since "discovering" her books in 1969. I also enjoy video gaming since my son got his first Nintendo game back in the early 80's. So when Agatha Christie showed up on PC games, I had to give them a try. The graphics of this game are absolutely stupendously detailed!! I got rather baffled at some parts and had to finally resort to searching out for hints on the internet since there are none in the game and I was really stuck.
Summary: I bought the PC game Agatha Christie: Murder on the Orient Express about 2 months ago. I enjoyed playing the game. It is easy to use and easy to follow. It has enough twists and turns to keep you interested; but not too many that it would make your stomache knot like a pretzel. It took me over a week to finish it, playing every night for 30 minutes to an hour. Great investment for the mystery lover.
Summary: This game was fun, but there were significant downfalls to it's layout: PROS: Excellent mystery soundtrack Good acting from 14 of the 15 characters (the american woman with the accent that drifts in and out of a southern twang was the only letdown) Good LONG gameplay Extremely original plot CONS: REDUNDANT BORING SCENERY: I am the sort that doesn't typically LIKE to play games all the way through with a walkthrough.
Summary: Superior graphics and gorgeous scenory. Game requires a huge amount of space to run properly, or it will hesitate in between each scene which can be tedious. Mystery is not always logically solved meaning strange objects otherwise not considered are actually needed. The characters are awesome. Some querky - some outrageous - you have to love some of the conversations that take place here!
Summary: As I am a fan of Agatha Christie games, I liked it, eventhough this is the weakest. Some of the puzzles just to hard, some things are just taking to long... Graphics of course great, story is very good and the end not to forseen.
