Summary: I got this because I like games that make you think. It is a little dated graphics wise. It is a fun game to try and solve a mystery.You can play more than once with different outcomes.I recommend this game to anyone who loves Agatha Christie.
Summary: This is the first real computer game I've ever played because I didn't think I was a game type person, but I AM!! I about went nuts bumbling around, muddling through, and stumbling around in endless nowheres until I found a super walkthrough on-line, and then I got down to business (all walkthroughs are not created equal!).
Summary: This was my favorite of all of Agatha Christie's books, and I couldn't wait to play the game. The game was really great, but just like "Murder on the Orient Express" some of the puzzles were too hard. Story-You are a boatman who is just taking 8 guests over to an island for weekend party with their hosts and two servants. When you get there, however, someone ruins your boat making it impossible for you to return.
Summary: I'm a big fan of the book this is based on, which is what attracted me to the game. I'm GLAD the ending is not the same as the book because, really, what fun would that be? While reading the book is not essential to playing the game, it might help give you some insight to the characters. If you're accustomed to action-based games, this is NOT the game for you. This is a puzzle game, consisting of lots and lots of dialogue, picking up items, and solving mental challenges.
Summary: First off I have to comment on the few people who've actually complained about the ending being different from the book. DUH! Let go of your ego's that were saddened because you thought you were so clever for "already knowing" who the killer is and then being wrong. Think about how that would affect the game, how you act, what you search for and concentrate on- if you knew the ending. This game was very fun.
Summary: I have this both on my computer as well as for my Nintendo Wii. The version for the computer is not as difficult as the version for the Wii. This is defintely not for young players because of the story line in the game. I can see some replay value in this game if you really enjoy these types of games. The Wii version I believe has more replay value that the computer version due to how the game play is much different since you have to use the Wii mote.
Summary: the graphics are fair and the story line is good, for a murder mystery. the characters do walk slow and, like the back of the cover says, there is foul language. the foul language is a little more there than the violence. besides that it's a pretty good game.
