Agatha Christie: 4:50 from Paddington
An untimed Agatha Christie
I love Agatha Christie and HOGs. But I only do them for fun and unfortunatly most Agatha mysteries are timed at Big Fish. This one isn't and it also happen to be one of my favourite novels, so I really enjoyed it. The story is good, it's a HOS only but you get to do it in interaction with the dialoge which is great and inventive. The only thing I miss is the lack of voices. Some nice English voiceovers would have been great!

This is a good one. It follows the novel quite well. The graphics are excellent, so even the tricky items can be seen. It uses British English: a wrench is a spanner; a football is a soccer ball, etc.

As English as...Russian Tea
There is lots to like about this game - plenty of hidden objects, some new ideas for challenges and even a chance to use clues to actually solve the murder. However if you have read the book or seen the TV play you will know who did it.
As usual a host of visual inaccuracies that will grate on a UK audience. The worst by far is the rolling stock at Paddington, defiantly not British. The pleasant seaside town of Eastbourne has been moved 50 miles inland. Amongst the others are a snooker ball masquerading as a billiard ball and "greasepaint" which seems to be a set of coloured bottles. If you can put up with these lazy mistakes you might like it.

Did not complete this game. Was slow, boring and the characters were wooden. HO scenes too small and close together making it difficult to see. Too many characters making it harder to keep track of who dunnit which I never did find out.

Way too easy
The game was way too easy even for this beginner.
I Liked the Mystery case files until I bought "Return to Ravenhurst", which is very hard an frustrating
