In case you don't read the entire review, let me say up front that House is NOT an appropriate game FOR CHILDREN. I'll explain why in just a moment. Murder She Wrote is a nostalgic visit to the TV show (if you are old enough to remember it.) The scenery artwork is good, but the faces of the TV characters did not do them justice. The hidden object games were satisfying, but not taxing. And it was fun to play along with Jessica as she solved the mysteries. Voice overs added a lot to the game. This game gets 5 stars. Go download it by itself. House, the game, is ridiculous. Loved the show, and the graphics of the TV characters are excellent, except that everything has a jagged outline that occurs when you enlarge something too much. People know this show well, and the dialogue reads like junior high students wrote it. A professional writer should have been hired. Also, the game really suffers from having no voice overs and having to read everything like a comic book. But the REAL ISSUE to my mind, is the absurd, immature, and CHILD-INAPPROPRIATE comments made by House. I tried to quote several of them here, but the GH filter for reviews wouldn't let some of the words through! Examples: Has [he] been around silicone a lot? And are your bre*sts real? "It's my medical opinion that you need more of a b*tt." (posterior) "You look like you're on an all-heroin diet." An ear-wax exam leads to the following: "When was the last time you had any se*ual contact? And no, using a public toilet doesn't count." "How often do you go to the bathroom? And since you're a girly-girl, do you p**p rainbows?" (excrete) That was the last straw for me. This game is NOT CHILD FRIENDLY. Heck, I'm an adult, and I don't feel friendly towards it. I give it 0 stars.
