Summary: Rated E - A Puzzle/Search Game My young teens enjoy playing it, but it is not their "go-to" game even though they both like puzzle games. They gave it 3-1/2 stars because of the game's pace and the game's inability to keep their attention. A Young Teen's Perspective: Mystery Case Files: The Malgrave Incident is designed for players who enjoy finding hidden items within a given puzzle/scene.
Summary: Let me preface my review by saying that my favorite kinds of video games are platformers like Mario and survival type horror like Bioshock and Dead Space. I'm also a huge fan of the GTA games. Therefore, this wasn't the game for me. The majority of it is pointing your remote and things and clicking it! Pretty darned boring for me....there's no build up of anticipation or excitement because you don't do anything but point and click.
Summary: I really enjoy hidden object games and point-and-click adventure games. I play both genres on the NDS and in PC versions. This was my first try at either genre on the Wii. I found it painfully slow--waiting for each new scene to load as I was clicking around the "island" setting. (Thank goodness you can access the island map to move from one general locale to another.
Conclusion: It took me 9hrs to complete this game, but if it wasnt for my daughter helping me through a website that guides you through games, theres no way anyone could complete this. Some of the puzzles would be impossible to do, but overall did enjoy it.
