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". The characters looked more real too. I loved the part where you could collect fingerprints and look through everyone's luggage.
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. Also, fans of the "Agatha Christie's Poirot" TV series will appreciate that David Suchet provides the voice of Poirot. The game is in third-person.
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. I do not think the game like the longest journey, journey to the center of the earth, and other games, had extremely difficulties.
Agatha Christie: Murder on the Orient Express Review

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. However, in the middle of the night someone is murdered, and Hercule Poirot hurts his foot. He asks you to investigate the murder and report back to him.
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 things was required entirely too much specific guessing). Overall, it lacked the lighthearted fun that we are accustomed to with all the Nancy Drew game's we've played.
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 published one of the best games ever with the last express (do yerself a favor and check it out). I liked and there was none but this game is even better. Now on to under the sun...
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: Actually, it was many fun-filled afternoons. This was my first exposure to Agatha Christie on PC and I enjoyed it tremendously. The graphics on the Orient Express are great! I love the interaction. The changing scenes were good. It's important to have a strategy guide or walkthrough to assist you over the "rough spots." If you get stuck ... a good walkthrough can save you hours of grief. I can't wait to try her next installment!!!
