The best hidden object game i've played so far..
on 6 August 2011
OK, I've played a few hidden object games on my DS, like Mystery case files, Amazing adventures, Mystery tales, Witches curse, CSI, Hardy boys and Cate West vanishing files, to name a few. But i found this game Murder in Venice the best by far, it has a good story line which doesn't drown you with lots of text and you jump straight into it from the start with a hidden object game. Some of the objects you find are kept in your inventory for you to use to get out of sticky situations, for example, a chair in your inventory can be propped against a door to stop people getting in. You also have to find objects to help you progress like an old door which could be used as a bridge but it may be blocked by other objects, this situation then becomes a mini game for you to get through and once you get to the door you may need to use some thing in your inventory to de-hinge it. All through this there are small remarks (hints) from your character guiding you through. You also have to take pictures of the scene, a small area of the scene is shown to you and you then have to find it in the big picture and snap away. Whilst doing all of this you must remember to find a chess piece in each scene to unlock a chess mini game. So.. all in all, i found it a good game, with variety and good clear graphics.. i would highly recommend it.. and if you don't like it you can always trade it :).. thanks for reading x
