Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not At All Like The Others In The Monumental Series! This fourth installment in the "Art of Murder" Series, a series which is almost a total masterpiece, is in no way like the other three. If you like hidden object games that are timed, with many objects almost completely hidden, or shrouded in darkness, then you'll like this very short game. Actually, the storyline is very good, and the game could have ended up in just as exciting a way as the other three, but City Interactive decided otherwise, and hence, we have a "lesser god" to work with. I sincerely hope that City Interactive continues the series with Nicole Bonnet actually talking, as there are no voice-overs in this game, and Nicole is only seen at the very end of the game. The rest of the time, just a small icon of her head can be seen as she interacts with the various characters of the story This installment had its good moments, some interesting puzzles, and some good graphics. Other than that, there is not much you can say for this game..

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth the time I started playing this because I have played the previous games and really enjoyed them. I am wondering if even the same company designed this game. It has such a cheap feel to it. Goes right into hidden objects. Which I am getting SOO tired of and is why I got this game. I really hope this wasn't the last one of such a great series!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not like the others ...at all. For anyone expecting this to be a great point and click adventure game like the first three Art of Murder, well, you over expected. Now a HOG, Secret Files has managed to lose all of the intrigue and finesse that made those first three so enjoyable. While I wouldn't call the story itself boring, it really was lacking. Maybe if I had started with this game I wouldn't be so disappointed... then again, maybe I would be.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from City Interactive Destroyed The Art Of Murder Series! This once intriguing and pure adventure series is no more. I loved Cards Of Destiny and Hunt For The Puppeteer they were true pure 3rd person adventure games! Not This One! I am SO glad BFG had a trial version for this or I'd be one upset customer! Based on the trial Version: I played with headphones on wow didn't need those! The other low reviews are absolutely correct I wish I read them before I even tested it! I quit with 28 minutes left! They took out all voice over's added one HOG after another. I HATE HOG's.. To top it off some are timed with nearly impossible to see objects that IF you don't find them all by the time the hour glass run's out.. You have to start over! I couldn't see anyway to actually move her yourself to locations like the other games I mentioned so they also removed 3rd person. The Story line: I just marked OK because I didn't get far enough to give a real opinion! The Soundtrack: It doesn't fit the scene's at all! Example: A senseless HOG in a scrap metal pile with what sounded like Oriental music? Nothing Oriental about the scene at all! Then as you try desperately to find the tiny invisible objects like a dead fish/pillow etc.. The soundtrack just goes to an irritating sustained musical note! Don't buy this if you played and loved the beginning of the series because this is nothing like them! This doesn't even seem like the same developer made it. What a disappointment! Pro's: The Title Cons: The rest.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Way to go, ruining a great series! This game is absolutely awful. The hidden object scenes are either too dark, too jumbled (NOW I understand my fellow HOG gamers who complain about junk pile hidden object scenes), the hidden object list is itself too obscured (yes, there are scenes where you cannot see a single thing in the hidden object list because they are completely shadowed! And you are constantly penalized for misclicks.), or you are given just ridiculously too little time to complete a hidden object scene. If you are a fan of the Art of Murder series, do not expect this game to be ANYTHING like the others in the series. Really, what were the developers thinking trying to slap the Art of Murder title on this fiasco? The fun factor was ZERO! By the time I reached the medical examiners' office - which is very early in the game - I was, frankly, furious with the poor quality of graphics, visual and sound, and level of challenge. If it were possible, I would have given this game NEGATIVE STARS!!! Oh, and as someone who spent 20 some years in the Protective Services, the utter incompetence of the characters would have seen them with a big boot to the rear out the door, don't even THINK of trying to obtain a pension, we can't see your backside soon enough, firing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Art of murder: secret files challenging fun game turns to pot and point and click hidden object with no challenge. Very boring and annoying.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Art of Murder the Secret Files This game is terrible. It is a very short game. If you get to the gears to get into the well and you get the gears in the wrong place, boy have fun trying to figure out how to fix it. Then you are almost finished. I cannot beleive that I paid for this STUPID game and it was that short. UGH> I do not recommend this for anyone.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I didn't even want to finish the free trial It's hard to believe this is the same developer. So lame.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Could've been good! Can't believe how short this game was. The graphics could have been better and I didn't know what some of the items i had to find were (this may have been a language barrier thing though) Music was ok, although seemed to lack tension. It's a shame, this could have been a good fun game
