  1. The story develops nicely as your investigation proceeds and the puzzles provide the right amount of challenge to keep you actively engaged without blocking your progress for too long.
  2. I did enjoy playing MM. Beautiful graphics and music, pretty good puzzles, along with one of the best puzzles ever created, interaction with almost everything and a good story with unexpected twists make up for the poor dialogs and the bad voiceovers.
  3. We wanted 'The X-Files' and instead we got 'Columbo'.
  4. 52
    Annoyances with the graphics and sound almost drive any interest in seeing the conclusion of the game away. The gameplay is extremely generic. The puzzles are easy to figure out, but there aren't very many in the game and some challenge would have been nice.
  5. Rooted in archaic gameplay sensibilities and devoid of engaging characters or plot, Crime Stories won't even appeal to the most vehement of adventure game fans.
  6. A $20 ride of immense frustration. It’s true that proceedings become more interesting as you progress, but this feeling of general improvement might be down to the fact that you’re aware the end is ever closer.
  7. Crime Stories is merely tragic, a paranormal murder mystery whose downfall is its over-enthusiam. [Oct. 2006, p.72]
