Art of Murder: Hunt for the Puppeteer is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic story line and graphics This game was so interactive and not slam dunk easy! It kept my attention, made me think hard and provided great ability to save the game at crucial points in play. I would recommend this game to anyone seeking adventure, mystery, puzzle fun and time spent playing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nicole Bonnet FBI Agent Super Heroe! If you enjoy a challenging and pure adventure game, gamers will love this older City Interactive tale. Set in Paris, France as well as Spain and Cuba, gamers get to travel and match wits with the Puppeteer, a highly skilled and dangerous serial killer who started his spree in Louisiana, USA. Nicole Bonnet is a highly intelligent and resourceful FBI agent who has been sent on assignment to stop this elusive and vicious killer who stages his victims for the police to find. Days of playing and figuring out puzzles is what a pure adventure game is all about as well as reading all the dialogues and scouring the scenes. A journal allows gamers to go back and read all dialogues and other police records. Is a joy for Adventure game lovers to play and re-play! Enjoy! -Mama Mia-

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Point and Click Adventure Game If you are or were a fan of the Broken Sword PAC adventure games like I was (I still am), then you will really like this game. This game is 3D so it's closer to the newer BS games like Sleeping Dragon. It doesn't have as much humour as the BS games and the music isn't as inviting , but I still give this game 5 stars. Looking forward to playing the other 2 games by the same developers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Pleasant Surprise! I really didnt expect to like this game as much as I did. A nice long adventure game that had a great story line. She never stayed in one location for too long which kept it interesting. The only thing that I wish would have been different is, some of the scenes/points for prospective where kept at a distance. Other than that it was great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Different, Difficult, and Fun! 4.8 Stars Definitely play the trial version first because this game is really different. You can see your character, an FBI agent, and make her move through the scenes. Other reviewers called it a 'third person point of view' game. The game play felt a little cumbersome at first, but I got used to it and really enjoyed the game. One thing worth noting regarding the trial version is that you can accomplish all of the tasks in the scene in under the given hour, but you are not allowed to progress to the next scene in the game. No big deal, but I wish I'd known that when I played the trial version because I thought I'd missed something. You definitely get your money's worth with this game! I played it for about 2 weeks. It is VERY hard. Usually, I pride myself in not using strategy guides, but this game required super human MacGyver-type knowledge in order to make useful gadgets, from seemingly unrelated inventory items, to solve problems. And there are no hints. So I got the strategy guide from a link on the Big Fish forum and had to refer to it 4 or 5 times. If you enjoy the trial, I would definitely recommend buying the game because the game got better as it progressed and you get more familiar with the types of solutions the game requires. I also got better at recognizing when I was clueless on what sort of gadget was required for a task or how to make one from my inventory items. In one instance, after I used the strategy guide to make a gadget that solved the problem, I still had no idea why the thing worked. Knowing when to use the strategy guide in this game is a useful strategy. :-) Lastly, this game was fairly creepy because the murders were gruesome. However, the story, graphics, sound, cut scenes, atmosphere, were all excellent and the FBI agent was sassy and smart--really liked that. Great game! 2 FYIs: You can use your Escape button to skip the 2 introductions. Double-clicking your mouse makes the character run.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My First Large File Game - Very Thrilling/Engrossing- Review Of Completed Game You take on the role of Nicole Bonnet, an American FBI agent and must track down a dangerous serial killer known as the "Puppeteer" that the FBI believes has moved from the USA to Paris, France. This is definitely a true point/click adventure game but NO 360 degree movement (woo hoo as I don't like this). You won't find any HOS (Hidden Object Scenes) here. Lots of traveling back/forth and talking with people to get things accomplished. The hint system for me was a hit and miss. Sometimes I found it helpful and sometimes not as it just brings up question marks. You also have to combine items from the inventory to use them which I found to be done by trial and error. There's also a couple of parts in the game that are "timed" and you can't skip them along with one I would consider a puzzle. Other than that no puzzles. Also at times can't "pick up" items until they are actually needed. You also have to save the game as it's not done automatically. OVERALL IMPRESSION: WOW! What a rush! A totally thrilling and engrossing game. The story line right along with the graphics, voice overs and characters especially Nicole just excellent for me. As my title says this is my first large file game I've played all the way through as the ones I've tried in the past were the 360 degree movement and well I can't play those and while I've played a lot of games here on Big Fish mostly HOG's and HOPA 's (Hidden Object Puzzle Adventure) I find this to be a bit different. My reason for putting myself as a "beginner." I was so happy to see this game isn't that along with a group play at the Big Fish and an excellent walk through in case needed which I've rarely consulted one for games but I did have to for this game about 4 times. As for the game length this game was quite long for me. It took me about 12 hours to complete this. Most of it in one setting but not all of it. While I ran into a few frustrating parts (the couple of "timed" parts along with the one puzzle) in this game well I can't help but rate this 5 stars as I found this to be way more fun than frustrating but it was definitely challenging and not an easy game for me. Thanks Big Fish and developer. I sure look forward to seeing more games like this and especially the Art of Murder series here but from what I've read this developer seems to be taking this to the HOG/HOPA level. I sure hope they decide to go back to 'adventure" for this series. As always, give it a whirl and decide for yourself.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Chilling Game was excellent. The first scene was a little slow having to go back and forth to the hotel, but after that the game got more intriguing as you got closer to the murderer. There is a murderer on the lose who kills his victims and then arranges the body as a puppet. The ending scene did seem lame, but the rest if the game was great. Puzzles were challenging, but not completly impossible. There was one puzzle in the mansion that was impossible for me to where I had to get a save file from someone else who completed that puzzle (if you look up slider puzzle in the forums, you will see a lot of people who had a lot oftrouble with this puzzle). Graphics were very good too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nicole Bonnet and City Interactive Create another Success! My thanks to Robert Ozog, the Leader and Story Director, and City Interactive, for coming up with yet another thriller a la "The Art of Murder: Cards of Destiny." The story once again has Nicole jumping all over the map, from Paris to Marseilles, and from Spain to Cuba, and back again to Marseilles. She is on the trail of another brutal serial killer, but is impeded by a French police inspector and a variety of thugs. She goes through constant life-threatening situations and runs several "death gauntlets." These are timed sequences, featuring climbing dangerous walls, outrunning attack dogs, and climbing out on high ledges. The slider puzzle, which needs to be solved to get into a secret room was a real agony to solve, and it took me about an hour to crack it! If you loved "Cards of Destiny," then you'll LUV "Hunt for the Puppeteer!" Again, THANKS, BIG FISH GAMES!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BRILLIANT GAME!!!!! I loved this game. As good as all the other Art of Murder games. It has everything. Brilliant movie like graphics, great storyline, brilliant sound effects. Loved all of it. Quite challenging at times so had to look at walkthrough now and again. Some puzzles took a while to crack but enjoyed doing them.. You feel like you are in on the action with these games and its total immersion. FANTASTIC!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish there were more games like this This was my first point and click adventure game. Instead of starting with something simple, I dove into this one couple years ago and it took me almost 3 months to finish. Had to resort to a walkthrough a couple times but I mostly could figure out what to do on my own. Before finding this game, I was an avid hidden object game player but I felt as if that genre was going downhill not just with the story lines but game play as well. I started to seek out something with more adventure and less hidden object. I cannot say enough good things about this game. Everything was spot on and it was HARD and I LOVED it. From here I bought almost every game BFG had large file including syberia 1&2 which I highly recommend. I also played all the other Art of Murder titles and am very sad that the developers went to a hidden object genre after having tremendously good adventure games. This is one of the only games Ive played where I was actually nervous and scared by the plot line and everything going on. I began to see myself as Nicole and when she was in danger, I was in danger and Id panic. This game had me at the edge of my chair and I recommend it to anyone who is sick of the same old hidden object games and wants a real challenge. You have to use your brain but its logical things to figure out not the same junk you see in the hidden object games. This game really got me thinking and I was deeply saddened when it was over. Its NOT 360, its a point and click adventure and I've been a member of bfg since 2007 and this hands down is the best game Ive ever purchased.
