At only $30 this is a great game if you enjoy the traditional PC based hidden object games. The hand crafted environments are beautiful. The Malgrave adventure has a great story and other clever puzzle games which are seamlessly bound together with Myst style point and click exploration.
Even though it was a simple concept and quite repetitive, there were still some puzzles needed for progression and the images were beautifully done as well.
Nice mysterious tone too.
This is a joyful 7.
It's a title that anyone should be able to pick up and have a fun time with, whether alone or with friends or family, though the main mode's focus on repeating old seek-and-find segments as well as some bland puzzles along the way make the things feel, at times, unfortunately dull.
The Mystery Case Files series on PC is pretty cool and a really good choice for hidden object fans, but the genre's debut on home consoles somewhat disappoints: not enough mini games, a lacking atmosphere and the Wii's control possibilities largely untapped.

The Malgrave Incident looks and sounds great. The puzzles are repetitive but decent enough. Basically this is a really amazing example of a substandard genre. Worth a rent if you like puzzles or mysteries.
