    Difficulty notwithstanding, Mystery Case Files: MillionHeir is a delightful game.
  2. A fine level of polish was heaped on MillionHeir, yet the framework of the adventure falls short of providing a cohesive gameplay experience. The object hunting puzzles are excellent, but they don't always feel connected to the story or the characters.

    Mystery Case Files might be lacking in personality (sorry, bad puns don't equal personality), but it is an engaging diversion.
  4. If you are looking for a simple (maybe too simple), fun and "light" hide-and-seek game, MillionHeir is probably the right choice.
  5. Mystery Case Files is a fun, albeit slightly repetitive, experience.

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. Full Review »
