Stick to the basics - this is too complicated!, 19 May 2007

I purchased this game expecting to get a classic board game brought into the twenty-first century through the additional DVD included. I was sorely disappointed.
Firstly the game is no longer a murder mystery... it is now a mystery to solve who has stolen an item. What was wrong with the original plot?
Another disappointment was how complicated the game is. I was expecting the basic format of the traditional cluedo with an added bonus of the DVD disc, however more often than not the DVD just interupts when you are trying to progress through the board game. The DVD really slows the game down as players have to go close to the TV to look for clues through a secret magnifying glass.
Better off sticking to the original game... I wish I had!
