Customer Reviews
Agatha Christie: The ABC Murders is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a brilliant game for Poirot fans Please please please do another one of these. The game was so well thought out and clever and like nothing I have played before. Loved that you could actually take part in the interrogations, reconstructions, grey cells puzzles and had to use your brains for the thinking games. Fab game you must do more!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The next best thing to a new Agatha Chrisite Alas, Dame Agatha is no longer with us. But we can reread her books, and watch this game. It follows the book closely, but you can make stupid mistakes in interrogating suspects, or miss things. The puzzles are a bit hard, but not impossible (one of them I made the mistake of trying to solve before having all the information). It has very much the Christie flavor, and you can test your detecting skills. Now make yourself a cup of tea, and curl up with this game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from a welcome change compared with the past games This game is so different to the rest of the games that it was such a pleasure to play it.....I chose the C profile, and I did enjoy to act like Monsieur Poirot. Do not miss the mirrors....you need them to check your awesome mustache and remember to have order and method. You will also receive different reactions to your answer depending what approaches you chose to use....... Please Big Fish, we need more games like this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A nice change from the same old Big Fish offerings Good story and acting, especially considering this is Agatha Christie and Poirot they had to recreate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A-MA-ZING! Loved this game! One of the best in its genre. The story is very interesting and uses the deduction abilities of the player as Mr. Hercule Poirot very well. A game where your actions somehow define some aspects of the story. Figuring out how it works is not complicated. I really recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not for everyone but certainly a WIN for Agatha Christie fans! I'm a huge fan of Agatha Christie games. I love the Hercule Poirot series and mysteries and was very excited when I saw this one on BFG. Having previously played 3 others, I know this is not an HOG and anyone that plays the Demo version will know that right away. I don't think that should earn it less stars. The game plays like other AC's in that you find areas and clues to solve murders as a brilliant detective. The ego points were just funny little icing on the cake. Game play isn't the easiest to get use to. If you double click in an area quickly enough he'll go a half step faster but you will sometimes want to bang your head on your desk at the slowness of his roll. Occasionally, the game glitches when you are on a character and trying to choose look vs. speak. I don't hole that against this game either. As a general rule I can speed through BFG's HOGs lightning fast. Within a few hours I'm left with nothing to do but replay or find another one to replay. I gave AC's ABC Murders 5 stars because even when I know bits and pieces of the storyline already, it took me several days of gameplay and concentration to finish. I love that! I want more of that. This game is totally worth the money if you love detective stories. Again, the controls can be annoying but well worth it in the end.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant! I love a third person adventure game. It is fun to be able to actually see the person you are playing. I also love a good mystery, so this game is my idea of total fun! Like reading a good book and actually being in the story. The graphics may not be the best, but the fun factor more then makes up for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow - Terrific game What a brilliant game this is. Having played other Agatha Christie PC games on disc from store purchases I found this to be excellent particularly the puzzle tasks which were almost on a par with the Nancy Drew games. There are 3 murders to be solved and various locations to visit to solve whodunit. The only negative aspect are the actual characters which at first I didn't like as they were too cartoonish for me and weren't as humanlike as the characters in other Agatha Christie games I played but I got used to them and thoroughly enjoyed the game and was sorry when it came to an end. Wouldn't class it as a Hidden Object game tho more an advantage murder mystery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Agatha Christie's Poirot to the rescue I purchased this one immediately as I am a big Agatha Christie fan and love the previous games. I think it followed the book very well and loved the portrayal of the characters. It is an adventure game not a HOG and has a hint system but you do need to think on this one. I am really enjoying playing it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magnifique! Review based on: full demo Overall rating: ✭✭✭✭✭ What my rating means: Quel bon jeu! SHORT & SWEET SUMMARY REVIEW …and now, for something completely different! This is a real murder mystery, where you examine the scenes for clues, question suspects, and put the clues together to answer pertinent questions. Along the way, you’ll encounter puzzles which you’re left completely alone to solve. It’s brilliant! More details on the specific elements of the game below the fold… ———————————————————— STORYLINE The great Hercule Poirot has received a letter from a wannabe serial killer informing him as to the date and place of the first murder. So, off we go to Andover with Hastings at our side to solve the murder of Alice Ascher, owner of a tobacco shop. Presumably, this will be followed by the murder of someone with the initials B.B. in a location beginning with B, and so on. But for now, let’s put our little grey cells to work! EXPLORATION Examine the murder scene and its surroundings for clues, which will be recorded in Poirot’s notebook. Question suspects and witnesses, which may go well or horribly awry, depending on your choices. Observe the suspects and witnesses to determine whether they’re telling the truth. Solve puzzles to gain access to cabinets, boxes, and the like. And connect the gathered clues to answer questions about the case. HIDDEN OBJECT SCENES None. This is not a Hidden Object game. PUZZLES I encountered three during the demo: • Unlock the cash register, then open the hidden cache by finding and using the code. • Unlock the box by finding and activating the hidden buttons. • Unlock the credenza by solving the maze, then correctly positioning the decorations. DESIGN Your mouse controls everything. Click in the scene where you wish Detective Poirot to move. When an area can be examined in close-up, the pointer will change to a spectacles icon. When you have a choice of actions, the pointer will change to a rounded down arrow; holding the mouse button down will show you available actions. (This occurs when you hover over a person, and the choices are usually “speak to” or “observe.”) A grasping hand means you can interact with an item. You can also click/drag items to rotate them for examination. PRODUCTION The graphics are bold comic book style, and done well. Animation is smooth, with cutscenes having an “action movie” style. Music is evocative of a murder mystery and accents the theme nicely. And the voiceovers are perfect! EXTRAS There are loads of performance achievements and some scenes you can watch over again. CONCLUSION I found this game to be unique in style and gameplay with an immersive storyline, and I recommend it! It’s rare to see a game like this that’s so different. Maintenant, excusez-moi, s’il vous plait…j’ai un mystère à résoudre.
