    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.

Finally decided to play it last night and I do NOT regret the buy. It was a very great game. The story line was great, your ghost abilities were really cool, and I loved the main characters. I do wish it had been longer but only cause I hate it ended. I got hooked and couldn't stop playing. Highly recommend this game. Expand

The narative is little slower (someone may call it boring). And due to lack of action and only few stealth scenes, the gameplay is kind of simple and not challenging. On the other hand the story is interesting, the investigation elements are kind of new (similar to L.A. Noire, but that is just only one competition so the novelty did not wore of yet). The small open world with many side areas to exprose was a surprise for me (I expected linear tunel) For me the most important part is that once I started the game I did not leave it until I finished it. I was not able to stop playing and exploring the world and story. And I finished satisfied. This is something that I dont find in many games these days. So if you can get over the lack of action. If you like the games like Heavy Rain, Beyond, last Telltale Games or you like the L.A. Noire investigation parts, then give this game a change. You may be very plesantly surprised. Expand

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
