    One of the most surprisingly good games I’ve played in a long time. It manages to sell its bizarre premise and builds a solid, moving story out of it, and the plot-propelling investigations add immensely to the detective feel. Walking around as a ghost is clever and entertaining, and it even manages to inject variety into some of gaming’s most overused elements.

    It’s too bad that the production isn’t more refined but for what it is, it’s a minor achievement.

    If you're looking for a relaxing way to spend a rainy afternoon, Murdered fits the bill, but that's about it.

    Murdered: Soul Suspect, though it was diverting like a bit of light reading, never really hooked me. And that's its biggest problem.

    The few moments where Murderd: Soul Suspect actually makes good on its supernatural potential aren’t worth slogging through the rest of the game for. It’s trying to be a gripping murder mystery, but never really knows how to get there. This is one you should probably just leave for dead.

    Mediocre story, boring characters and dumb logic makes this a pretty big let down.

    The premise of a ghostly investigator attempting to save himself and his town from demonic forces shouldn’t be this tedious. Unfortunately though making the fantastical seem mundane is one of the game’s few real achievements.

You have to play this game if you like investigating-murder games. Also check the gameplays are available on youtube, don't let yourself fooled by the critics. Definitely a 10/10 game. Expand

What I liked about Murdered: Soul Suspect is the story, what I didn't like about the game was how short it was and the demons are really annoying. You can beat this game in 1 day or 2 days. It took me about 5 hours and 30 minutes to beat.

    I would give this game a chance. Go out and rent it or buy the game cheap.

    What Kind of Adventure?

    Graphic-Adventure

    Was it fun?

    The gameplay wasn’t a lot of fun but the story was great and kept me on edge of my seat.

    Are there any similar games?

    Its a point and click, murder mystery. I’m sure there are a lot of games out there like it but I’ve never played one.

    Favorite Character?

    I don’t really have one, the game didn’t do a great job developing its secondary characters.

    Would you play it again?

    No, this game is all about the story and trying to solve who the murderer is and knowing the answer would make the game far less enjoyable.

    Any Complaints?

    Too short, I would have loved more development in the story. Also, you could interact with almost every person in the game but 99% didn’t add to the game experience at all. This game felt a bit rushed but the company went out of business two weeks after the game was released so this game was a last ditch effort by the team.

Unfortunately there's no sort of problem solving at all inI bought this game after seeing the mediocre scores since I like detective games. Unfortunately there's no sort of problem solving at all in this game. There's barely any gameplay at all really. 90% of the game is running around and finding collectibles which unless you want a platinum trophy is very much not worth the effort. In the end the story was reasonably interesting, saving the game from a worse score. Expand
