I've played the other "Women's Murder Club" games and must admit that this was the best version since the first was was published. But like all of the games, it gets very repetitive very quickly. After awhile, I was just hoping it would end soon. The story line is pretty interesting, the mini-games are thought-provoking and the graphics and sound is top notch. But I finished the game in less than a day. If you're a fan of the "Women's Murder Club" games, you'll enjoy this one. I was impressed.
I could not stop playing this until it was done. Very good graphics and terrific story line. Want more like this.

This game was great. It had you at the edge of your seat the entire time. You cannot stop until you figure out the ending. It's good cause their are hints you can use when you are having touble with a puzzle, and a walkthrough if you are stuck. Most of the time though you won't need either. I recommend def getting this game.

It might seem a bit superfluous to give this game yet another rave review, but it really deserves praise. I haven't played the other Women's Murder Club games, but intend to now. If the others in the series come anywhere close to this one, then I'm in for a treat. There is really nothing negative to say about this game, the graphics were superb, especially the character artwork which is some of the best I've seen. The storyline is excellent, the game play nice and smooth; the mini games very inventive and enjoyable. I will say that you do need to concentrate on the areas that are highlighted with the magnifying glass and make sure that you don't miss any clues there, as some of them are quite subtle. I got stuck a few times, until I realised that I'd miss clues around the place and needed to find them in order to move onto the next investigation. What I particularly liked is that you actually had to test forensic samples and were made to really feel that you were part of the story. It's not a really easy game to play and I did have to look at the strategy guide a couple of times, but it's very easy to access, and the hint system is actually helpful for once. This really is a must play game.
I did enjoy playing this game but for me it was a little too easy and a bit too short to complete. The story line however was good and did keep you playing to discover 'whodunnit' and you need to not skip this aspect to get the most out of the game. If you did skip the story telling though it wouldn't stop you completing the game Loved the character interactions when playing as different people. but i found most of the puzzles, with the exception of a couple, fairly easily solved. The HO aspects were more of a challenge, but not enough to be frustrating and much more of what I'd expect from this game format. In summary I'd say you would be disappointed in the game lifespan if you bought it but if your on game-pass I'd happily recommend you to download and give it a whirl
I was really enjoying this game - It is not just a "find and click" HO and I like having to think my way thru each chapter. However, when I got to the lighthouse I had to use the strategy guide (again) but was unable to do what the instructions told me to.... (don't want to spoil it for anyone else by being too specific about the problem...) I have gone back and made sure I followed all the sequences but still the game won't work. I have deleted the game and re-downloaded. Maybe that will help? Sure hope so....
I love this game!!! I could not stop playing...I had to solve the case.

I liked this game and would recommend it to others. The hidden objects are well hidden and the hints refill quickly. The story line holds together and it's a good mystery. The graphics are good; it's fun playing as more than one person. I'll look for more like this.

This game was far superior to others in the series. They always have a good story, but the puzzles and hidden objects are a bit tedious and frustrating. This, however, was definitely something different. There were a few trying moments when I just wondered around aimelessly, but, hey, sometimes that's half the fun. Really, good value.

I absolutely LOVED this game! It really holds your interest and makes you want to keep playing to get more clues and evidence! Wonderful! :)

So you are to search for the killer of your friend. Lots of HO's searches with mini games. Graphics/art is well done. The garbage dumpster was so real it made my sick. But, it did not take long to find things needed.

I found this game to be challenging and difficult to pick a "stop for night" point. As the clues unfolded, I wanted to know what would come next. I do have to say that the dialog did not quite work to my liking. It was interesting, but I sometimes clicked when I should have waited. Whatever I missed in dialog wasn't a huge deal. I played all features and enjoyed it all. I would recommend this even to a first time mystery, puzzles, hidden object gamer. I would also suggest to not skip the Epilogue...just be sure to play it LAST! I did not mark "Kid Friendly" and wouldn't let my pre-teen play...no matter the argument!
I thought the puzzles were rather difficult. The graphics were great. I wish it had been a little longer though.

I really enjoyed this game. It was a challanging and fun at the same time. It makes you think.

In my opinion this is the best of the stories to date. The mechanics of the game are very good, the story line captivating, the graphics are great and this story will keep you interest through all stages. Unlike many other games, I did not figure out the solution to either crime based on clues available. I was in fact surprised by the ending. I recommend this game for all level of games. Have Fun!!!!!!!!

Great story arc in a HO game. Would have never figured out how to progress without the guide, which took some fun out of the game, just to follow instructions page by page. The HOs were pretty easy to solve, but some of the other puzzles I had to have the game solve for me. Some of the story dialog went very slow, while other times it went so fast I couldn't read it, and didn't get the benefit of information needed to solve the mystery. However, I enjoyed the story so much I played to the end within 2 days.
ok this game is like AWESOME.... storyline is so involved that you find yourself part of the story dont skip the story it makes the whole game. Hidden object scences are a little challanging exspecially the dumpster one hard to find things. but hint button doesnt take tooo long to load. Like the way you put the stragey guide in the game pretty neat. You have to play this game first time I have played one on theese series and so glad I did i played it straight through and well worth the hours upon hours i put into it. Was not disappointed in the ending and when the murder is solved you can go and be the person that commited it and it has one last couple of scenes worth playing. Didnt leave any loose ends in the story and it was very believe able only thing negitive to say about the story is even though you hear them talking kinda got on my nerves that the mouths didnt move. You wont waste your money with this game. Dont want to say to much about it cause i didnt know anything and that made it so much better i think. NOT A KID FRIENDLY GAME. you are solving a murder crime atleast one with out any spoilers just not for young vieweers preteen maybe I woulnt teenagers yes but depends on the child . you WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.
