I purchased this one after 10 minutes. I'm a "Fletcher" fan & was not disappointed by this 2nd one. 3 cases to solve, good graphics, entertaining, but not frustrating mini-games, same "HINT" design--find appropriate typewriter keys in HOS to obtain additional hints. Overall, I was very satisfied with my purchase...clear graphics, intriguing cases, HOS not too cluttered & objects not too tiny for us, Seniors. I play with sound muted. Kid-friendly, as there aren't any truly horrific crime scenes & the characters/scenes are animated rather than photographed.
Maybe because I am a Jessica Fletcher/Murder She Wrote fan, I loved this game. The graphics are great. The HO scenes were just right. The voices were wonderful. In my opinion the game was long enough, especially if you consider it as a whole. If you don't like MSW or that kind of sweet, calm, murder mystery, then might not be your cup of tea, but I really enjoyed it just as much as the first one. Great Job. :o)

I'll be the first to admit that this game is not on a par with games like Empress of the Deep or Golden Trails. But it holds its own as a nice pleasing HOG that doesn't strain your brain. And if you're a Jessica Fletcher fan, well all the better. I enjoyed this group of mysteries as much as the first batch, but there are differences. I did miss not having to look for typewriter ribbons for extra clues. But I liked the fact that you had to get yourself from place to place rather than having the game just take you there. This did cause a bit of back-and-forth, and by the third game I got lazy and used the hint button to tell me where to go next rather than retracing my steps everywhere until I found the correct location. But the stories were good. The HO scenes were mostly easy, and so were the puzzes, if you could figure out what to do. A little better explanation would not have gone amiss. Nonetheless I still enjoed playing the game and will probably replay once just cause I think they are fun.
Remember to pick up the all the vowel typewriter keys to get additional hints. Stories are pretty lame. It is sometimes confusing where to go next, especially when it comes to the hidden object sites as they are activated by your completing tasks. So you may have gone over an area without getting a prompt, but later you will. There are better games out there with more involved plots.

I enjoyed this game, but not as much as the first series. The drawings of Jessica and her friends are not as well done, and the games are a bit more complicated. In the first series you were drawn along from one scene to the next. That is not the case here. You have to figure out where you need to go next and what you need to do. It's not always obvious, and if you miss something required to further the game it can be a bit frustrating. The hint button is great inside an HO scene, but not so helpful otherwise. Still, I enjoyed the games--just not as much as the first set.
Murder She Wrote was one of my favorite TV shows and the game held true to the TV format. This game had 3 separate murders to solve. I skipped a lot of the dialogue as it got a little tedious for me. The third murder was in the dead of winter with snow and ice everywhere. With the gray skies it made looking at the screen very hard (lots of glare) and it gave me a headache. There is no map so I used my hint button to navigate. I found the mini games to be difficult to understand and I skipped a lot of them.
The sequel is slightly disappointing in that it has only three "books" to work through. Legacy kept the great things from the original game; finding the letter keys, character identification, and murder mayhem. However, there is not a typewritter ribbon to find for an extra hint. In this sequel you must walk the town of Cabot Cove (think "traditional" HOG) whereas in the first one, the game took you to each new place. In some ways this adds, and detracts, from the game. There is a sense of seeing Cabot Cove, but there is a lot of unnecessary back tracking during each book. The HOS are not so cluttered that it's incredibly difficult to find objects but they aren't incredibly easy either; it's a nice balance. I didn't use the hint button often - only for a mini-game or two - due to lack of patience on my part. When I first downloaded the game and saw that there were only three books, my first thought was that the first book would be fairly long and the second two relatively short; I wasn't wrong with that thought. The storylines are very good, but it seems like the game designers were trying to rush through the second and third game. All in all, I really liked this game. The storylines were interesting, the character graphics very good, and it was a nice way to spend my free time. I recommend this for first time HOG. This game will ease you into other, more challenging, HOGs. It's enjoyable for the HOG "expert" too.
I really enjoyed playing the original "Murder She Wrote" game, and was looking forward to playing "MSW 2" . Unfortunately, maybe it was me, I found the clues to be confusing or not helpful, which led to running back & forth not knowing what to do next. I finally got through the first crime (there's 3 to solve) and decided to call it quits. Very disappointing ,this time around, for me !!

Good storyline...fun to be a part of the investigation. HO scenes were good - you had to find typewriter keys to get hints in the HO scenes...I haven't played the one before this one but I think I'll go check it out.

I chose this game as I used to watch the show and like Angela Landsbury. True to the show format, murder abounds where Jessica resides and travels to. None of the puzzles were difficult, but I thought all of it was fun. Cabot Cove and beyond are nicely portrayed and the twist of locating the typewriter keys to fill in the blanks for the HO's was different and fun. Only needed a few hints throughout but fans of the show should enjoy the familiar voices and melody of the game. As stated, nice little diversion, and very relaxing.
This game wasn't to bad, something to pass the time by. there are 3 different chapters to play with all seperate story lines. Playing the role as detective kept the game interesting. Loved how it made you feel like you were thrown back in time in the tv show, they did a fabulous job with that. Game wasn't super hard, but alot of jumping around and looking for clues etc......Not to to bad, but i personally wasn't super impressed maybe cause i got bored during the 2nd chapter story, and pushed myself to finish all 3 , so i could justify buying it!
I have done the first case, and I enjoyed it! The storyline is interesting, and there's lots to do and find. The one thing I do not like so far, is that every HO scene has lots of random moving bugs in it!! Ants, roaches, lizards (I know, not a bug, but you get the point!), you name it!! Creepy.
