Find hidden and missing items in creepy crime scenes.

Common Sense Media
20 July 2009
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this game has a slightly eerie tone that could frighten younger children. The environments - static images with objects hidden in them - are sometimes creepy crime scenes. The game also discusses murder, arson, and assault in dialogue scenes, though none of these crimes are graphically shown. Overall, this fun hidden object game is as appropriate as most mystery fiction aimed at the target age.

  • Excerpt: Cate West: The Vanishing Files maybe plodding, but there's little waggle and quite a bit of day spa music, which is a nice change for Wii gaming.

  • Excerpt: Mit einem Puzzle-Spiel rund um die übersinnlich begabte Krimiautorin Cate West möchte Entwickler Gamenauts für Spaß und Spannung auf Nintendos DS und Wii sorgen. Richtig Freude dürften mit "Cate West: The Vanishing Files" aber im Endeffekt nur geduldige Naturen mit Adleraugen haben.
