Murder, She Wrote 2: Return to Cabot Cove
First one is much better!
I was quite disappointed in this second MSW game, it was quite a let-down after playing (and re-playing) the first one. For those of you HO fans who enjoy jumping back and forth between scenes, you may find this one enjoyable as the graphics are clear, dialogue is kept to a minimum and there is a choice in difficulty. But if you were looking forward to a repeat of the first as I was, beware that there are inventory items to find and use, jumping between senes and some confusion at times as what you are supposed to be looking for. The only reason I won't be buying this one is only because, while I don't mind using inventory items in a scene, I do however dislike having to jump place to place to finish a task.

Worst game ever!
This is the worst game ever from Big Fish. Totally loved the first "Murder She Wrote" game. This new one is so disjointed. By the time you finish going through all the portals and clicking on everything, you completely forget what you are supposed to be going for! I dumped it almost immediately. What a waste of time and money!

Second in series, as good as the first!
Off to buy after playing the demo. I am loving this game - it is so loyal to the show. Gorgeous pix, great music and one of the few games where the plot/story actually has me intrigued. Three more Jessica Fletcher books/mysteries to unravel, with lengthy game play - and thoroughly enjoyable. Thank you! Rapt!

I bought the Mac version from Legacy's game site...
-because I couldn't wait to play it.
Sadly, I was disappointed. Perhaps it's a new producer.
What we get are three longer stories instead of five shorter ones as in the first "Murder She Wrote".
As expected with sequels, the graphics and animation qualities have improved.
However, the stories lacked the original creative punch the first had... that garden chapter in the first "Murder She Wrote" has yet to be topped story-wise.
With "Cabot Cove", you're going to be playing stories already told... just in a small neighborhood.
Again, suspense and challenge levels remain top notch, but don't spend money on this; use a free Big Fish reward coupon instead.

Not So Hidden Object this time around
I really enjoyed the first Murder, She Wrote game because there were loads of hidden object scenes. This game has beautiful visuals but in the hour trial I only found 4 HO scenes and was bombarded with mini puzzles in which I had to go back and forth from building to building looking for clues and solving puzzles. I expected more hidden object scenes but if mini games is what you want you will really enjoy this game. If you want hidden object scenes, I would save your money and purchase this one as a $2.99 deal.

It's just alright
first off, the 3 stars are for the 3 "chapters" we get vs. the 5 from the 1st game. i would have been fine with another 5 but to cut it to 3? that is not the makings of an enjoyable sequel. i did like the 3D world like in most HOGs.
secondly, this team up for this sequel was not a good one. they cut gameplay nearly in half without adding more to the 3 stories, made getting hints a chore, and the redundancy of the game itself was just painful. if one more person told me "show me proof," i was going to scream.
i think the 3rd chapter was just a big laugh in MSW fans face. if you remember micheal haggerdly (not sure if i got the last name right), he was a older man in the series. here, he is 27!!! 27!!! they just arbitrarily made him 27. why? the story could have worked with him being his age! then in the beginning, there is a list of names. two of the names are allen walker and edward elric. really people? were you so uninspired to make up names that you just picked two names from animes and thought no one would notice? well, i did and i am very disappointed in the companies for not only that but everything else and this painful game they made.
i'm so very glad i had a free coupon because this is not worth your good money.

Humph. I had trialled the first game andenjoyed it, but never got around to purchase it. I'll have to say that I liked that one a lot better than this sequel. There was no improvement regarding graphics, and I also think gameplay could have been much improved. I hate "pixel-hunting"! Also, much more focus is on the adventure aspect than the hidden object searches, and even though that's what I prefer, I didn't much care for this game's. So, even though I like the show as well as the first game, this will definitely be a No Buy for me. My advice is to stick to the first game!

GOOD FUN FOR HO BEGINERS
I FIND MYSELF A WEE BIT DISAPPOINTED WITH THIS GAME. IT IS A FUN GAME I THINK FOR NEWBIES, BUT THERE WAS TOO MUCH RUNNING ALL OVER THE TOWN. THE WHOLE GAME IS VERY CLEAR AND THE DIFFERENT CASES DO NOT INCREASE IN SKILL LEVEL, THIS CAN BE A BIT BORING.

Murder She Wrote 2 stinks
After doing Murder She Wrote I thought this one would be very similar and at least as much fun. Although I did find the first one to be short, good thing I got it on sale, at least it was fun. Mystery She Wrote 2 lacked the fun factor.
