  1. With a compelling narrative, intriguing setting, stellar acting, gorgeous graphics and character animations, Evil Under the Sun is one of the two finest detective/adventure games I've ever played—the other being Sherlock Holmes: The Awakened.. This isn't a game to be "beaten;" rather, it's a journey to be savored, reflected upon, remembered.
  2. Agatha Christie: Evil Under had me from the very beginning.
  3. Also, the production values for the game are excellent. All of the voice actors do a terrific job with their lines, which is a good thing considering how much dialogue there is, and the visuals, while not spectacular, get the job done.
  4. This would be a very good game, but it suffers from a fatal syndrome: it will inevitably be compared to the original source material.
  5. This one is a leisurely and enjoyable journey, one to take if you just want to relax and don't want to tax your own little grey cells too severely. It's particularly good for new adventurers.

    I liked it, but some of the puzzles were weird.
