  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.

    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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. As a whole, Women's Murder Club: Games of Passion was a laid back and interesting game for the Nintendo DS.
  7. The game is abrupt, lasting only a couple of hours, and trying to tap the right object is consistently niggling. [Dec 2009, p.94]
  8. A pretty poor detective yarn with (literally) two-dimensional characters. [Winter 2009, p.67]

    I wouldn't like it even if I'd got it for free. Without doubt the worst game i've ever played. Could have been great but instead was like a childs game.. match the word with the picture... complete and utter BULL. I could go on all day about just how bad it was. Full Review »
