Murder, She Wrote
Good theme, play becomes repetitive
I agree with other reviewers that the "Murder She Wrote" theme is a nice change from the darker games. I enjoy games that have a lot of hidden objects, and that part of was good for the first two stories. By the third story, the format became repetitive. By the fourth story, the game developers must have become bored, too, because they started doing a lot of scenes that involved finding 20 of this or 30 of that. That's okay when thrown in occasionally, but that type of scene dominated the last two stories. The main reason I would recommend this game is because even if someone plays only the first three stories, I think it's a good game for people who prefer strictly hidden object games to hidden object adventures.

Didn't like this series of HOGs as I thought I would seemed to drag on, dialog was a little slow but was ok game to play.

Lots of Problems that ruined the fun
I could have liked this game...except it kept freezing or losing my place. I played three times and each time I got stuck. Seriously. I finished finding everything in a scene and a search item (that I already found) remained on the list. Nothing would make it go away. Hints didn't work. This happened three times in three places. Beyond that, often when I saved my progress, meaning to return later, I would end up in a different place. Often I had to repeat scenes I had already done.
The game was fun till this started happening. There were no hints available online anywhere - but there were a few people in various game sites who appeared to be having the same problem. I refuse to buy a walkthrough cause this game is pretty simple.
Wiping it out of my computer. Seven bucks wasted.

3 of the 5 cases are the same
Not a wide variety of story telling.
I heard there is a 2nd to this series; hopefully the gaming company has grown in experience from this first one.

Thee dumbest game that I have ever purchased.
This is nothing like "Return To Cabot Cove". You have 5 books to do challenges in. All that there is is a story line that you listen to between characters then right to the HO's. Some of those are a little hard to find but it is still very easy. If you skip all the monolog talk and just keep jumping to the HO's, I finished all with in 25 minutes, finding all the hidden tape reels, using no hints and finding all of the vowels. If you are a beginner then this game is for you. Otherwise not worth buying. UGH.

Murder she wrote
Oh my hat....no....after playing so many HO games this was the worst. Graphics pathetic and Jessicas voice irritated me so much I just had to turn off the sound. Just couldnt handle the way the characters moved on the screen...total waste of money. Must just add i also bought Return to Cavot Cove and it was measurably better...
