  • Excerpt: City Interactive's Art of Murder: Cards of Destiny is a game whose flaws are not obvious at first glance. The setup is clichéd but workable: an FBI agent named Nicole Bonnet is after a wily serial killer (a questionable and perhaps apposite translation refers to him as a "series killer"), who leaves playing cards on the body of his victims.

  • Conclusion: In evaluating this game overall, I’m reminded of another adventure I reviewed many years ago, Post Mortem--another dark and serious murder mystery game that hit all the right atmospheric notes but completely fell apart in every element of character interaction. Similarly, Art of Murder: Cards of Destiny shows a lot of promise and intelligence in the areas of storytelling, art direction, and plot development—especially impressive considering the budget price--and if only...

  • Excerpt: Since 2008, Polish developer City Interactive has been hard at work building up its Art of Murder adventure series. The games in the series blend a somewhat CSI-ish approach with the traditional point-and-click adventure and follow the investigations of sexy FBI agent, Nicole Bonnet.

  • Excerpt: By Louis Bedigian It seems that The Joker, the famed Batman villain who loved to kill with a smile, was ahead of his time. In the latest edition to the Art of Murder series, Federal Agent Nicole Bonnet must track down a serial killer who, like The Joker, appreciates a good tease. He plants clues, selectively and cleverly, that’ll bring the feds – particularly Ms. Bonnet – to the scene just before the crime unfolds.

  • Excerpt: There used to be a time when adventure games ruled the PC gaming industry. Growing up I gorged myself on Infocom text adventures, and later almost every Sierra or LucasArts adventure game I could get my hands on. With the advent of high-powered graphics cards, adventure games fell out of fashion.

  • Conclusion: Все мы знаем, что в самом начале рецензии автор должен изрыгнуть какую-нибудь глубокомысленную истину по поводу игровой индустрии. Хотя чего там мелочиться — можно и в адрес человечества в целом. Не отклоняясь от линии партии, изрекаем: главное для разработчиков — найти свою нишу на рынке интерактивных развлечений. Вот, например, смиренные трудяги из компании пришли к своему предназначению далеко не сразу.
  • Pros: динамичный сюжет; достойная графика; наполненная атмосфера; креативное музыкальное оформление; приятный ритм.
  • Cons: некоторая нелогичность геймплея; длинные диалоги.

Die Kunst des Mordens: Karten des Schicksals - Review

Gamezapp
5 April 2010
  • Summary: Die Karten liegen auf dem Tisch: Auch der dritte Teil kommt nicht über die Mittelmaßhürde hinaus und leistet sich darüber hinaus einige fiese Patzer: von total abstrusen Rätseln, die die Ernsthaftigkeit der Geschichte in den Hintergrund drängen, bis hin zu völlig wirren und dämlichen Dialogen. Der einzige Abschnitt, der wirklich überzeugt, spielt sich gleich zu Anfang im Kino ab.
  • Pros: im Ansatz spannende Geschichte, hilfreiche Hotspot-Funktion, interessante Schauplätze
  • Cons: Sound und Sprachausgabe mit Schwächen, aufdringliche Musikuntermalung, dämliche Dialoge, teilweise sehr nervige Rätsel
