Murder, She Wrote 2: Return to Cabot Cove
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.

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.

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.

One of the worse games I've played. Very boring. Big Fish has many other challenging games. Do not waste your money or credits.

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.

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!

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.
