4.0 out of 5 stars A unique game which at least deserves a chance., 6 Jun. 2014
This review is from: Murdered: Soul Suspect Limited Edition (PS4) (Video Game)
I received this game two days ahead of release and have just finished it taking between 8-10 hours.

The game is a bit like LA Noire mixed with heavy rain but is still it's own unique game which alone gives the game a reason worth playing.

The story is simple, Ronan, a criminal turned cop, gets killed by a serial killer and is now hunting him down from the afterlife so that he will complete his final goal and get sent to heaven, or someplace to spend eternity with his dead wife ( he probably didn't think that one through).

When it comes to gameplay it breaks down to three things; walking to the next area, finding clues and then working out what happened and finally dealing with demons which I absolutely despised.

When you get to investigation areas you have to look around the room for clues, some obvious, others you may spend a while finding though not all the clues are necessary to find, when you find the clues or at the least the necessary ones you can attempt to give the answer(s) to a question such as "what was the killer doing here" when it comes to these questions they are pretty easy to solve, I had trouble sometimes but came down to misunderstanding what it was asking. Although the game sometimes treats you like an idiot sometimes, I did feel like a detective which is a big plus.

Now onto the demons. I hate them, their annoying and did not need to be in this game. It turns into a very bad stealth/action game. The way it works is you either try to get around them or you can try to execute them by simply getting behind one, pressing R2 and then moving in a direction and pressing one of the buttons. But if they spot you they will suck out your soul (I think) and you will... die? Or you can try to get away by hiding in these ghost shadow things that are in there plenty when needed, but the demons will look for you in there and what always seems to happen is that I kept having to jump from one to another constantly until it gave up, if it spots you in it, do it all over again.

Other things to note is that there are a lot of collectibles, I picked up over 175 different items and there are still a lot more. They range from notes about the killer, the towns past and also notes from Ronan's dead wife all of which are short and because of that, readable. There are also stories you get through collecting specific objects in each area

I've only played a few ps4 games but when it comes to the graphics there nothing special but doesn't ruin the he game in anyway, it's not trying to look pretty.

Aside from the demons there was something else that was in a way a negative and that was the ending. This game needed a great ending but unfortunately it didn't do it for me. I won't spoil it but It didn't make me go Whaaaaaat! or anything, in fact I actually got it correct, partially. I also felt it cheated me a bit, I won't say what because it may ruin it.

Overall I did enjoy this game and would give it 31/2 stars. It's unique and interesting but the ending for me let it down.
