Players interested in a good detective plot/mystery will find this game worthy of far more than the 2.5-3 stars some popular review sites give it. Gameplay is like an interactive cinematic: every task, search (this is not a typical hog), interrogation & mini-game or puzzle actively advances the plot. * You investigate 4 cases total, 2 are inter-related. Everything makes sense, plot is mature & like on TV. * Graphics are nice but occasionally a bit fuzzy. * Many mini-tasks related to detecting & forensic work are integrated seamlessly. * Most of the puzzles are on the easy side; the item finds can be tricky, though, as for about 1/2 them, no list is provided -- thereby allowing you to determine for yourself what evidence or further info each case needs; "thinking" players will find making correct selections very rewarding -- you can always resort to clicking or using hints if you prefer -- no penalties & hints recharge quickly. * There's a lot of dialogue, so if you dislike reading or don't care about the story, this will detract, although it's skippable. * You do a lot of suspect interrogation, but its sole purpose is to discover more bits about each case, i.e. what you ask does not affect the outcome in any way -- this, while relaxing, may disappoint some. It is useful for eliminating suspects & figuring out where the plot will go next! Overall, if you enjoy an immersive experience, like being a TV show detective, you should greatly appreciate this game. It's a good length & runs perfectly under Win7 U 64-bit too.
very interesting stories-one was kinda creepy. the way they related one crime to another-you did not solve the 1st crime b/f moving on to the 2nd, and then the 3rd seemed to relate to the 1st. very interesting-seeing the crime scenes/finding and gathering evidence/interogating suspects. cool. some of the mini games were very very simple and easy, but it was...interesting...yep...interesting...

This was a fun and original game - very different from other HOG games.

If this game is not rated easy, it's because it's often not clear what the task is. I get the impression more effort was spent on writing the banter than on setting up the gameplay.

I prefer Hidden Object games, and those could come in Easy, Medium, and Hard levels also. I thought I'd try this one because the price was reasonable. We DON'T need dialog or a "storyline"! Most of us are probably adults.

When I first heard about the release of this game I was really excited. However, I was disappointed at how short the game was. It was ok to play, but when it was over -- ???? A better value for your money would be Special Enquiry Detail - The Hand That Feeds.

This game was good overall. Gameplay was very in depth and loved solving the crimes! The only complaint I have is that the game wasn't long enough! But I got it for free so cant really complain too much :) It made for a fun night of play!

Sorry but I didn't like it at all It indicated what the next steps were to be in all cases No surprises or the "unexpected" Maybe I am too old and jaded I primarily only buy Hidden Object Games and bought this because it was $2.99 and it may have been OK

This game was fun and kept my interest. My biggest complaint is the lenght; it was such a short game. I was expecting a little more length considering the interweaving storylines. As for the mechanics, I found the mouse pointer accuracy to be a little off. I unintentionally found items by clicking in the general area on a few occasions. The one thing that may be frustrating for some is the searching component. Rather than a list of items, you are provided with a generic objective with minimal clues. You end up clicking on many items in certain scenes before hitting the right items. Unlike traditional puzzle/HOG hybrids, this game doesn't have a "notebook" or "journal" for you to refer for clues. You just keep on clicking until you hit it.
The dialog was really annoying. The game was not challenging at all.

This game really makes you search for the hidden objects.

I would not have been disappointed if I had paid for the game but to get it free was great. I am enjoying it but the only thing that is bad is that the hint button doesn't really give you much help. I am now at a point when I am going to the forums. The game is relaxing and fun.

This game is very challenging to the mind, it really made me have to use my mind and to focus and to remember the clues. It also makes you to try and figure out who the killer is.

It was fun. It is similar to the other detective games but I like them.

I enjoyed this game, it really gets you in the action as to what had happened and you really go from one case to another. I also enjoyed helping people to get a clue from what they know. To me, this game was almost like the game clue but a twist that'll keep you guessing.

I really enjoyed this game. Loved how the scenes all intertwined together, but the game was over before I knew it.

I enjoyed this Detective Mystery hidden object game. I found it to be challenging and enjoyed having to find clues that were not on a list. For this HOG you had to think as a Detective per se to investigate the 4 cases that were assigned. I recommend this game to make ya think, good graphics, some items are a little small but ya can use hints with no penalties.

I enjoyed the way the 5 "cases" interacted. While most of the clue finding made sense, at times I had no clue (no pun intended) as to what to find. Overall great graphics and dialogue. Made it fun to follow through.

I love hidden object games; this one did not live up to my expectations. Graphics are a bit old fashioned. Overall, it just wasn't much fun.
