  • Summary: Mystery Case Files: MillionHeir uses the unique Nintendo DS interface to expand upon the seek-and-solve game play of the popular series from Big Fish Games.

Players progress through an interactive detective story investigating a cast of characters and uncovering new evidence to find the rightful heir to a million-dollar fortune. This new portable installment is available only for Nintendo DS.

    Difficulty notwithstanding, Mystery Case Files: MillionHeir is a delightful game.
  2. If you are looking for a simple (maybe too simple), fun and "light" hide-and-seek game, MillionHeir is probably the right choice.
  3. It's not a new idea but it's done well on DS, with enough variety to hook you. A good budget addition to a puzzle fan's library. [Dec 2008, p.66]
  4. Mystery Case Files: MilionHeir isn't going to take the place of the latest platformer or RPG in your DS library, but for what it is--a visual puzzle that tests of your power of perception--it fills the niche well. [Nov 2008, p.101]
  5. Those with a sharp pair of eyes who like a decent visual challenge will find Mystery Case Files to be a worthy commute companion. It's not as challenging as most puzzle games and constantly uncovering hidden objects grows tiresome, so we only recommend it for the terminally bored.
  6. This is an “I Spy” game. If you like such things, you might like this, and if not, you can safely ignore it.
  7. It's not a terrible effort, but there are dozens of missed opportunities over the course of the game that could enhance the entire experience, and the fact that practically none of them were taken left me scratching my head.

    The game had the most basic story that only served the purpose of getting you from one scene to the next. You had a certain number of items to find over a certain number of scenes, with a set given number of hints. You'd go like this from case to case until you solve the bland story. What helps make up for it is the story is comedic, and doesn't take itself seriously (the main person related to the storyline is a wealthy man named "Phil T. Rich," if that gives you a clue). Other than that, the sounds and music were nice as well as the scenes. The actual item finding was decent fun too. Overall, it was an enjoyable game for what it is. Expand
