Murder, She Wrote Review

Jim Rosenquist Avatar

Review by Sara

Murder, She Wrote is an adaption of the television classic starring Angela Lansbury that takes strides to mimic the show. Lansbury's character, Jessica Fletcher, is a murder/mystery novelist who stumbles upon crime in her daily life and experiences success as an amateur criminologist.

Solve 5 Murders

This game features five murders that must be solved by locating hidden objects within a crime scene to discover the culprit. The typewriter hint feature and familiar characters offer a good tie in with the show. One interesting feature of the game is the object list is initially missing vowels that are hidden in each location in the form of typewriter keys that must be found to complete the list. The keys are generally simple to locate however, which detracts from this unique game aspect.


Not Much of a Challenge

Items themselves are usually very vibrant and easy to spot, which can be a detriment to the player who seeks a challenge. Video of dialogue between characters is time consuming and can easily become boring but can be skipped.

Conclusion - Fans of the TV Show May Enjoy It

To a fan of the TV show, the consistencies it shares with the original will be amusing and perhaps enjoyable. However, while some unique features do add diversity, easily located objects and dull dialogue will likely turn off many players from this game
