Murder, She Wrote 2: Return to Cabot Cove
I Won't Be Returning Any Time Soon!
I wasn't a fan of the original MSW, and this is no different.
(based on 30 mins free trial)
Able to walk around a little this time.
HOS were good, great challenge, but I didn't get the typewriter keys.
Case storylines are worse than last time, a little boring.
Some puzzles were good, but others were bad
Hint takes a little too long to recharge,
Only 3 cases, compared to 5 last time.
Skip takes WAY too long to recharge
Have to find typewriter keys to fill in the missing letters of objects you need to find.
Hard to figure out what to do next.
Well, MSW 2: Return to Cabot Cove cerainly has me wanting to leave. I don't recommend,

Original much better. Very Disappointed.
Adventure Lite game. Missed the hidden objecty goodness of the original which was also much more in depth. Can't honestly recommend this one, although the third and final case was much better than the first two.

Not worth buying
This game was "OK" but that is it. Not very challenging and way too short. The graphics were very mundane. Just wasted my money.

The First Murder She Wrote Was Far Superior
I enjoyed and bought the 1st Murder She Wrote game but after playing about 30 minutes of this one, I called it quits then I deleted the game from my computer.
I got to where I have to click on objects then move them to find out what's underneath but nothing would move when I clicked on them. For me this was discouraging, and I don't have the time or patience for this kind of trash.
You have to find the vowels A, E, I, O, and U for Jessica's typewriter in the 1st scene. I wasn't able to find the letter O so I took off my glasses and held my face up to the monitor. I never found the letter "O'. For me, this was the first of my discouraging moments in this game.
I love hidden object games but this one is not for me. Although I still play the first Murder She Wrote game over & over, this one is for me an extreme disappointment.
I will NOT purchase this game and I do NOT recommend this game for anyone of any age.

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!

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.

Hated It - Great Disappointment
I just could not believe how extremely disappointed I was in this game from the beginning. The first "Murder She Wrote" was remarkable and so very fun. This one? First, I was disappointed that it was one story instead of several like I was expecting. But most of all, with this one it was back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. And for what? I still don't know! So disjointed and disappointing. Wish I could get my money back. I just deleted it and put in the trash.

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.

Wow, what a disappointment! I was excited to find this game, as I had enjoyed the first one very much - but it seems that the developers took pieces left over from the first game and cobbled them together, so they could make money from the sequel. Some of the graphics didn't work at all ("grabbing" objects to reveal the clue hidden underneath), and the challenge was non-existent. I wish I could get my money back.

What a disappointment!
I purchased game one and loved it. Bought this without trying the sample based on game one and what a disappointment, The second is nothing like the first and lacks the enjoyment that I anticipated would be similar to the first. Save your money and buy something else.
