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.

Murder She Wrote good 5 episodes Jessica speaking a good touch easy flow with some thought given to having some challenging objects, alround reasonable game. House however causes some problems and needs time to get use to the way it does things lacking in helpful help on occassions

Jessica was fun and a bit nostalgic. Thought the game of finding vowel keys to fill in the word clues was kinda cute. The HO's were pretty easy and it was fun to solve the case with Jessica. The artwork was pretty and it was good to hear her theme song again. If you liked "Murder, She Wrote" you'll probably like this. House was worthless! I loved the TV show, but was very disappointed by this game. It's boring, repetitous and disgusting, in that the script, as another reviewer noted, is beyond tolerable. It is also NOT a HO game. All you do is make circles to "work" equipment, pick out different colored and shaped "microbes," choose words for a diagnosis and follow arrows to insert needles or other diagnostic tools, along with a few other manipulation-type games. B-O-R-I-N-G!!! If it wasn't for the language and disgusting comments, I'd say this was more for a child. Bottom line, Jessica gets a happy and nostalgic thumb up; and House gets a solid and disappointed thumb down.

I thoroughly enjoyed playing Murder She Wrote. Graphics were like a child's illustrated book beautifully done, and the game played out just like the TV show. Voice overs were great, character drawings off a little bit. Fairly easy play. Now for House. There are no HO scenes at all, just repetitive medical procedures. No voice overs, just pages and pages of dialogue to read (some funny, some crass) just like the TV show. Found the game boring. If I had to rate the games individually -- Murder She Wrote: 4, House: 1

Too much work trying to spin the centrifuge and the valves. Wrist hurt trying to keep up the speed. Ten minutes in still hadn't seen a hidden object game.

Unistallation complete! "Murder, she wrote" was boring, but Dr. House wasn't even a game...was a waste of time.
