Summary: If you are a fan of Agatha Christie and PC type games, you will not be disappointed. This game moves like a PC game would but the story/ mystery is so captivating. you can't go wrong with agatha christie.
Could not get into this game (experienced PC mystery player)

Summary: Could not take how slow this game plays... we play Nancy Drew on the computer as a family (my husband, me, our teen, 9 year old and 6 year old) and really love it. After seeing bad reviews for Nancy on Wii, and good reviews for this game, we decided to try it. If we can have the same amount of fun but sit on the couch and relax while playing together, it would have been perfect. But none of us could take Poirot. He drove us all crazy.
Summary: I am a HUGE Agatha Christie fan, and have read numerous of her novels. EVIL UNDER THE SUN is not one of them. I thought it might be fun to play the game instead, so, when I recieved it as a Christmas gift, I was eager to pop it into the Wii and give it a shot. EVIL UNDER THE SUN is not your average Wii game. In fact, it is more like a PC game on a Wii console. You do not use Wii motion sensors for hardly anything (okay, maybe one brief thing).
Summary: I am an Agatha Christie mystery fan, and they did a good job with this game. There are parts that are a little annoying at first, like the time it takes to walk all over, but when you figure out where everything is, and you can figure out what is going on so you know where you need to go, then that part isn't a problem anymore. It is a point and click game, but it is a mystery game- not a action game- so it works well. I have other games for action.
Better than the Wii version of Agatha Christie's" And Then There Were None"

Summary: I will say first, if you are planning to play both Agatha Christie (Evil Under the Sun or And Then There Were None) games for the Wii, this is the better of the two! Not saying the "And Then There were none game wasn't good, it was just easy to beat. I just got done playing"A.T.T.W.N" and it only took me a week and that is only playing it an hour here and there. Evil Under the Sun is a good book, T.V. Episode(Agatha Cristie's Poirot) and video game.
Summary: This is the second game I have bought for the Wii. This game is awesome!!! It is pretty realistic and you have many choices of how to proceed, just like the PC game "And Then There Were None", and nothing like Murder on the Nile(lame). You use the controller to turn and twist things. I was very impressed. I can't wait for the next Agatha Christie mystery to be made!!!!
