    All I can say for sure is that the game evokes a strong one more match before I quit mentality. The gameplay and the rules work like an oiled machine keeping a steam engine rolling. Of course, the play can get a bit repetitive and there could be more variety, but then again, it wouldn’t be the same game anymore.

    Conceptually interesting hide-and-seek that rewards cleverness, but lacks variety.

    From its amusing setting to its solid gameplay mechanics, Murderous Pursuits has a lot going for it. When you boil it down, it’s a fun game to play, especially with a few friends to share in the antics.

    Murderous Pursuits is an entertaining, inventive, and accessible online multiplayer experience hobbled by its technical issues, stingy amount of content, and lack of polish. The game’s developers are promising to brush up and expand the game over the coming months, but will it ever reach its full potential? Only time will tell. There’s fun to be had at this murder party, but you’re probably best showing up fashionably late.

    The great potential of the game on hunters and victims has not been used. Murderous Pursuits would need more content, technical care and, ultimately, players to escape the stereotype.

    A solid multiplayer experience with some interesting ideas, but with a severe lack of content at the moment.

    There is potential for amusing cat-and-mouse exchanges, but a lobby full of humans is hard to find.

    Take the premise of Assassin's Creed multiplayer and that is pretty much this game. The art style is great along with the pleasant vinylTake the premise of Assassin's Creed multiplayer and that is pretty much this game. The art style is great along with the pleasant vinyl soundtrack gives it that old Victorian Britain style. It has a steampunk feel to the game. Albeit the graphics aren't all that great. The game, after about an hour, gets very repetitive and find yourself asking why are you still playing with very little to gain from the game. For what the game is all about, and it's a simple idea, it's very pricey. The matchmaking is very poor and sometimes just can't enter a match. It is good if you find yourself without a game and want to kill an hour or so. The idea is good but could have had a lot more added to the game. Expand

    Graphically the game is OK, with an interesting art style. But unfortunately the game is repetitive and even boring after a few hours. And in addition to that I try the game in different hours and it is not always easy to find other players online to play it.

    Unfortunately my playing experience was poor and the game was weak and could not hold my interest.
    Due to that I do not recommend it.
