Special Enquiry Detail: The Hand That Feeds is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 17.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like a good crime novel or TV show. My review is based on the whole game. I have played it through first in Story mode and then in Find All mode. I really enjoyed this game, so much that I searched hard for a sequel - but no luck. Now they have just released a second installment, so I'm definatly getting that. The theme is classic. Two cops in a newly started department for sensitive cases. They (of course) have a very different approach to being a cop, and have to learn to work together. There is a lot of story to this game, which I love. Most of it is written, but some is done with voiceover. The cutscenes are drawn and fit really well with the atmosphere, The "theme music" is amazing, a woman singing mournfully, but it can become a bit monotonous over time. Luckily they change the soundtrack after a few minuttes, so you don't go nuts. It's on a loop. The HOS are really nice and very varied. From luxury apartments to darkest slum. I don't think I've ever seen such dirty places, but I guess they could exist i New York :-) People who find that there are too many HOS should remember that this IS a HOG, not adventure, and should have gotten another game. Yes, there are some hard to find objects, but if it gets too frustrating there is a hint that recharges. I personally like the challenge, but must admit I used some hints in this game. All in all a great game. Not in the topmost league, therefore only four stars in overall, but really great none the less.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Very Good "Whodunit" To Be Solved This review is for the whole game playing in story mode. The story: The newly formed Special Enquiry Detail, Brody LaMonte and Cathy Turino, are investigating the murder of Carmody, the daughter of wealthy philanthropists. * 2 modes of play: Story & Find All Objects * 12 Chapters * Voice Overs plus text on screen to read/click through. * Graphics realistic looking. * List of Task(s) that need to be completed. * Map * Hint/Skip refill pretty quick * Mini games/puzzles My overall impression of the game: I really liked this game. Definitely hope to see more like this one. If you have played and like the Women's Murder Club series then you should enjoy this as it's pretty similar to this. I sure felt like a real detective and part of the game here interrogating the suspects which this had some twist & turns. Just when I thought I knew who murdered this young girl... NOPE! Also gathering/collecting evidence. The graphics had a "realistic" look to them and I found to be very well done along with the voice overs however I wish the voice overs would of been throughout the whole game instead of parts of the game and then the rest you have to click through dialogue/text but not a whole lot of reading. There's also quite a few HO scenes to this and I must admit I had trouble finding some of them because they are so small and/or really blended into the scene. You also acquire some inventory items however pretty much used right away as there is no "wandering around" in this game. There is a map however only list 1 or sometimes 2 locations to go to. There's also mini games/puzzles which I found to be pretty easy and fun. Nothing frustrating here. As for game length: Obviously varies from player to player. Although this has 12 chapters however they are pretty short as I completed the game in about 5 hours but found it long enough and quite enjoyable. Overall I give this 4 stars. I knocked this down a star for the very small objects to find as some are very small. Also if the voice overs would of been used throughout the whole game this would of been a 5 star game for me. Thanks though Big Fish and developer for a pretty good game here. I sure hope to see more of the "whodunit" type games like this one brought to the site here.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good "Whodunnit" I found this game to be quite a good old detective story and who dunnit. The graphics were very good and clear and the dialogue a bit tedious but necessary to keep abreast of the case as it unfolds. The background music however is repetitive and monotonous. The plot is to find a young girl's killer and it becomes even more intriguing when they think they have the culprit only to have the evidence disproven and they find themselves back to square one. The puzzles are interesting and intriguing and require a bit of thought but they are not really hard. Some of the hidden objects are very small and blend in with the background and other objects which make them hard to find, others are ok. A good game - worth buying.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A REAL Mystery to Solve Granted, it wasn't all that difficult to figure out whodunit, but in this game, you actually got to solve a murder. The graphics were good, the HOS were well done for the most part--that is the biggest downfall in this game, in my opinion. The HOS were repetitive scenes/locations--the cop office, the lab, the study, the victim's bedroom, etc--but you were often asked to find different objects each time, so that made it bearable to me. The story begins with the murder of a wealthy, privileged teen-aged girl being murdered in her bed while her parents attend a charity function for Daddy's homeless shelter foundation. You play a team of detectives in a newly created department which handles sensitive cases. Since the mayor is buddies with the Daddy Warbucks character, the team is called in. For the most part, the scenes & graphics are middle-to well done. The cut scenes are junk--some sort of water colour or drawings of the characters which look as though the art budget was tapped out by the time the creators got to this part! Characters looked different than their CGI counterparts, strange looking with eyes too close together or the female having a manish look to her face but PLENTY of cleavage the rest of the time! As I said, strange, but other than the cut scenes, no real complaints. Gameplay was pretty standard--a map which lights the locations you can/must go to next, with very few choices allowed. There were puzzles in every chapter, many of which were old standards or variations on them, so nothing new or creative there...nor too difficult. All in all, a good few hours of sleuthing pleasure, where the creators did not lose sight of the storyline. Puzzles were average, not too difficult and after a minute or 2, you are able to Skip without penalty. In several situations, you do get to be the lab/crime scene tech & perform tests such as GSR or fingerprinting. Sometimes there was little or no instruction on HOW to perform them, just trial and error. There is no time kept nor points awarded in the game, either. A good way to spend a rainy evening or day. Try it--a bit of old school HOG with some crime solving--you might enjoy it enough to buy it, as I did, with no regrets.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like watching Law & Order HO game that lets your play detective. Fun minigames keep the theme going. Only negative is some of the hidden objects were really small and hard to see, but that's what the hint is for.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A classical criminal investigation This is essentially a HOG on a criminal investigation background not unlike Women's Murder Club yet not as good. I rather liked the visuals, clear, brightly colored, true to life, the minigames and puzzles most of which are directly related to the story, the storyline itself which does hold the road quite well, and questioning the witnesses and suspects. Unfortunately there are too many HO Scenes and too many irrelevant items to find for me to fully enjoy the game. Although the game is of medium difficulty in general, some puzzles present a fair challenge and so do the tasks you need to perform in order to progress. The Hand That Feeds offers long playtime with 12 chapters and enough entertainment to consider adding it to one's collection especially if it comes on the Daily Deal. Note: Review based on the demo
