Crime Stories 2: In the Shadows is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from a great M3 i really like the M3 games that tell a story and this one does. you are two people playing to find a killer. they each have their reasons. after every chapter there is an interaction between them and then others join in. the game gives you hints if ou are idle too long, if there is a hint to be had. i had to restart 6 or 7 levels in order to finish them. you have a HO game at the beginning of each chapter. you earn stars to get upgrades as you play. i played on the relaxed level.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Crime Stories 2: In the Shadows I enjoy playing games through this developer and it makes a change to play a matching game with a hidden object segment

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This came out of the shadows I'm not a big fan of match 3 games but, for some reason, this one gabbed my attention. The graphics are above average, gameplay is challenging and fun. Love the background music. There is a story line but it doesn't deter from the play. You can buy upgrades but I haven't yet. Need to explore more. Overall a great little match 3 that I know you will like.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good game ---but I like this type of game and play quite often. I like this franchise and enjoy the game. However, I would like it better if offered the choice of the way it is or to have it timed or limited moves. More challenging for myself.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I bought this game for the story.. Wow.. its been so long after the first one in 2017. I love the storyline, dark detective atmosphere, and relaxing jazzy tunes in the whole game. But im not impressed with gameplay mechanic, not much changed from the first one. Except the hidden object scenes. Overall a good game, still bought it for the story.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's acceptable This match-3 games has a bold story unlike other match-3 games. It also provides the jazzy background music that blends well with the art and theme of the game. Please add new feature for the game so it won't be too monotonous.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Game doesn't work right I tried the game out and bought it right away because I liked the M3 boards. But there is NO WAY to avoid the numerous storyboards at the beginning. I hate that. Then after I got into the game, on the hidden object boards the list of hidden objects can't be seen. they are hidden under the black stripe at the bottom of the screen. I tried this with both the full screen and the widow screen version. I wish I had saved my money!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's not great, but its an okay way to spend some time After playing the demo, I have to say I am probably going to buy this game. No, its not the most original or exciting, but I like all the available powerups, and after I figured out (with no help from the game) what the flashing images meant, I had fun. Sometimes, you just need a new game, and for me, I think this one will be it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from SLOW GAME I haven't played the other Crime Story, but have played games by this developer. This one seems very slow. When you are trying to match it seems to wait until the icons drop before you can complete your match. Always try for yourself.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very Disappointed The game-board layout is NOT the same as the first "Crime Stories: Days of Vengeance." It loads differently (falling icons) and the graphic quality is not nearly as good. To me, it has a childish quality to it. When I saw it listed, I was really excited as I love-love-love the original Crime Stories (working on my third repeat). Very challenging. But this one? A huge disappointment. Thank goodness for the trial option because it's definitely a no-buy for me. P.S. Developers need to realize that ADULTS play their games as much as the kids and design them accordingly.
