  • Summary: In Women’s Murder Club: Games of Passion, players step into the investigative shoes of the Women’s Murder Club members, Lindsay, Claire and Cindy, where they investigate a string of seemingly unrelated murders as they unfold. Beautiful women go missing and turn up dead around every corner, and the clues point to the least likely of suspects. With engrossing, story-driven gameplay and thought-provoking mini-games, Women’s Murder Club: Games of Passion lets players immerse themselves in a classic Patterson mystery as they examine locations for clues, and interrogate witnesses and suspects alike. A distinct mix of hidden object and puzzle gameplay, Women’s Murder Club: Games of Passion lets players become a part of the Women’s Murder Club. Additionally, a unique DSi feature allows fans to create their own mystery by utilizing the DSi camera! [THQ] Expand

  1. A nice find-the-item game to go with a really good story that supports some DSi features. Some of the objects are very hard to find, so maybe beginners will be a little bit frustrated.
  2. Women’s Murder Club: Games of Passion is better than other games of this ilk, but considering the talent involved it should be much better.
  3. As a whole, Women's Murder Club: Games of Passion was a laid back and interesting game for the Nintendo DS.
  4. 60
    Women's Murder Club is notable for two things: Teaching people how to avoid being arrested for murder and its Mad Libs bonus mode. The rest is fairly forgettable, though I suppose fans of James Patterson might want to be part of the unique storyline.
  5. A pretty poor detective yarn with (literally) two-dimensional characters. [Winter 2009, p.67]
  6. Series fans may get a mild kick out of the latest case for Lindsay and the gang, but few others will find the point of exploring these Crimes of Passion, as there’s just not enough of significance to seek out here.
  7. So, unless you like condescendingly easy adventure games where the gameplay is only loosely tied to the story at best, you’re better off reading a mystery novel instead.
