    If you’re a fan of mysteries, Murdered: Soul Suspect would be a worthy purchase.
  2. 70
    Overall, Murdered: Soul Suspect is an enjoyable but simplistic mystery adventure which, although it features a well-detailed game world and well-written plot, is far too short for its own good. It's a game which I'd recommend to fans of this genre, but only at sale price.

    A solid premise let down by rote design. [Issue#250, p.64]

    By no means is Murdered: Souls Suspect one of the best titles of the year, but it's one of the most likeable ones.

    There’s a fun game to be had with the right mix of these elements — ghosts, crime-solving, a troubled cop and a serial killer — but Murdered: Soul Suspect just isn’t really it.

    A less than successful attempt at what could have been a novel concept. [Aug 2014, p.57]

    Lacking in meaningful challenge, Murdered: Soul Suspect fails to deliver on its promising premise at every step. [Sept. 2014, p.70]

    Dont know whats the problem with critics, seems like everyone trying to let this game down, and giving 10/10 for crack dogs.
    I am currently
    playing this game and looks quite good and well designed. At least they have tried something new. Expand

    After reading so many bad reviews, I started to think I had just pre-ordered a flop. But once I started playing, I got pulled into it's great story and fun game-play elements. It's not quite an open-world game, yet it's not linear either. It's kind of like L.A. Noire meets The Longest Journey: Dreamfall. The game isn't perfect, but it's the best game experience I've had this year and that's all I care about. Expand

    super game times a game by going to 90% of a story, it plays like a small book, or a slightly longer movie is made ​​great by itself, the atmosphere .. just the auto memory points are a bit goofy set .. a Metascore of only 60 I can not understand despite cod mw3 and get there 85? my personal score ... 86 and only because it is not something for everyone ... you could say it is an advanced point and click game it makes me definitely a bunch of fun.
    sry for bad eng ;)

    The game is OK overall, but GOTY? No chance. These 10 reviews rating 10 are clearly mostly employer reviews as you can see they have only signed up to rate this game. Expand

    Don't bother getting this game if you play left-handed on PC. There's no key customisation at all and you're forced to play with the WASD set-up. It seems very boring with its QTEs as well. The game was severely over-hyped. Expand
