Murder, She Wrote 2: Return to Cabot Cove
Love MSW2 but...
I love this type of game (without the vampires, ghosts, etc.) and bought it immediately without the trial. It has the same type of scenes as in the first MSW (hints from typewriter keys) and is well worth playing. It could use more HO scenes and a map to traverse the areas faster. The biggest down side: worst mini-games I've ever played. Regardless, I'd buy the next one without hesitation.

Excellent Game Series
Of course, 5 stars. I'd give it 10 if I could. I selected this because it looked like a relaxing rather than tough game to play when I'm not feeling so good, or to tired for a hard challenge. Well, I found that I had 3 games in one, and such a different format than the usual HOG. This has become one of my favorites, which brings a bit of a problem for me. I have been searching to find other Murder She Wrote games, and I haven't found any. Please, give us more? Whoever makes this particular series, I will buy all of them, and recommend them to friends and family.

Angela Lansbury's back!
The artwork and voice-overs are better than the first Murder She wrote. Although the sheriff's accent could be worked on, the Jessica Fletcher in this version is very convincing.
I've only completed the first murder so far, but all the red herrings that were in the TV series are present. I did have a little difficulty with some of the puzzles, but the HOS scenes with the missing typewriter keys gives an added element.

I loved this game as much as the one before. I think the first had 5 "stories" and this was 3, but it was great. Not spooky/gory (well except when you first find the body, but the graphics are not gory). The only problem I had was the story lines would go by too quick for me to read. I'd suggest being able to click "next" when you are done. Otherwise, I really liked it and hope there are more.

WAITING FOR MORE MSW MYSTERIES!!!
The storylines in each novel were very good indeed. My only complaint is I would have preferred more animation and vos. The text appearing at the top of the screen could have been spoken and the characters were a little wooden.
HOS - Fairly clear but some very tiny items. Must collect typewriter keys. Repeated scenes.
Inventory - Objects used fairly quickly in other locations.
Hint - Moderate recharge and acts as guide.
Journal - Lists objectives and clues.
Misclick Penalty - None
Puzzles/Mini-Games - Usual fare but there were a few I've never played before.
Jessica Fletcher at her best!!

I loved the story, the way of finding the clues, the pictures and so on.
