Customer Reviews
New York Mysteries: The Outbreak is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another enjoyable NY Mystery I have just completed The Outbreak (CE) and even though I haven't been in the least disappointed I found it a bit inferior to "High Voltage" and "Secrets of the Mafia". Yet, it is good enough to warrant a solid 4 star rating. So what's my beef ? First, everything is under lock and key. That means.... a lot of keys. Second, the development of the story is predictable, thus eliminating the element of suspense that keeps you on your toes and adds to the quality of the plot. It also based on the old theme of a disease that has to be stopped; not exactly a novelty. Third, even though you do find more logic in the New York series than in most other games, there still come a couple of moments when you stop and ask yourself "does that really add up ?" But we all know we live in an imperfect world... Other than that, the rest is fine. No stupid junk pile as HOGs (thank you devs); they are interactive, and pleasant to tackle even for someone like me who doesn't like HOGs. My priority is to always focus on puzzles. The Outbreak has a lot of clever ones, that do require some thinking without ever driving you to such despair that you decide to throw in the towel. They range from easy to moderate. Tasks are clear, hopping from scene to scene is fairly straightforward and you shouldn't get lost nor will you scratch you head trying to figure out what to do next. Hints are there to help anyway. The artwork is great, nicely on the retro side, very clear, well drafted. The pleasant animations and cutscenes reinforce the story very nicely with a satisfactory dose of realism. I am not much into morphing thinggies or collectibles; I bought the CE for the bonus chapter (highly enjoyable) and to replay some of the puzzles. All in all, a very nice game to add to your collection; getting the CE is not a waste of money, but if you're on a budget, the SE will be a good alternative, as the game is not tough enough to justify continuously having to refer to the Strategy Guide, save maybe in the unlikely event one of the puzzles stumps you. And of course.... do play the demo.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Deja Vu all over again I saw this title and was positively giddy at the prospect of a new game with a positive rating. The synopsis left me with some deja vu, so I went and looked up my purchase history and realized that had I purchased the CE in 2019 and it was great! I always check now to see if a game is something I've already purchased, a mistake I have unfortunately made on more than one occasion. All that to encourage that if you havent played this one, wholeheartedly do, it's really fun..

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Try before you buy This one was not the quality of the other ones in this series. It had potential and an interesting beginning but felt as if time was running out and it was thrown together before the deadline. The ending was so abrupt it left me feeling cheated. I miss the 1950s era backdrop, why jump ahead and change the way the characters look? Even the graphics seemed thrown together at the last minute, the visual richness was missing. If you are looking for this one to be as good as the others, you will be sadly disappointed. I know, I was. I would have waited another year for better quality.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sorry to be the lone dissenter, but... First of all, right at the first location in the demo, the game locked up my computer, and I had to do a hard reboot. Secondly, between so much backing and forthing, and so much dropping tools from inventory only to need another similar tool in the very next location, and puzzles disguised as HOS and HOS disguised as puzzles, plus needing hint after hint, my brain was thoroughly frizzled by the end of the demo. The graphics were as good as any of the previous New York Mysteries games. The plot was probably also as good as any. Sadly, the execution of gameplay in my opinion just didn't live up to the promise of all the good reviews. In the end, after completing the many hidden object/ puzzles required to open the doors of the cathedral and then finding I would have to get the secret confessional booth open, I gave it up. As always, give this game a try out before you buy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Would love to have played it, but... it did not work on my computer. This is the 5th game that does not work despite having the right specs for Mac.
