Customer Reviews
Art of Murder: Hunt for the Puppeteer is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 20.
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I hope they have more like this one!!! You play as Nicole Bonnet, an American FBI agent tracking down a criminal that the FBI believes has moved from the USA to Paris, France. This is not an easy game but that is why I like this game it is Challenging. But if you can't get through it there is an excellent walkthrough in the forum. I also like that it is not a hidden object game.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Adventure Game This is a third-person POV game. Not my favorite type as I prefer first-person POV, but a great game nonetheless. You play as Nicole Bonnet, an American FBI agent tracking down a criminal that the FBI believes has moved from the USA to Paris, France. The graphics are really good, and the voice acting is satisfactory. While the mouths move, they don't follow along with the actual words being said. Meaning, you'll still see their mouths move even when the character is done talking. This game is a bit dark, but IMO, it is the kind of game best played in the dark. You tend to see everything better that way. This is not an easy game for me, but thankfully there is an excellent walkthrough. While BFG does not provide one, there is a link to one in the forum. There are some humorous parts of dialog, but what I didn't like was the Inspector's blatant disregard for women in authority and Nicole calling him a Frog. Fortunately, that doesn't take away from the game; in fact, the Inspector's disrespect for Nicole does spur her on to do a good job. I do like the fact that the developers did include Sophie LeReux (from the Chronicles of Mysteries series) in a small scene to help out Nicole. Unlike the later AofM games, this one is NOT a hidden object game. It is a true point-and-click adventure game and you will do a lot of walking around. However, the great thing is that if you double click, you can make Nicole run. The game is a bit linear and Nicole won't let you move on to a new chapter (for lack of a better word) until everything is completed. Some may find the murder scenes a bit graphic and/or disturbing, but then again, murder is never pretty. And BFG does issue a warning for this. All-in-all, this is a challenging adventure game with an interesting and will take a while to complete.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun Hidden Object Game This really challenges the way you process thoughts and memories. Fantastic graphics, I truly loved this game. I wish there were more like this one. I love Bigfishgames. They really stepped up on protecting their customers if there is a problem. I truly appreciate the great games they refer to us. Please play this game, you will not be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Exciting Game I started to love these types of games after playing the Syberia series. The Art of Murder series is just as interesting to play as you become agent Nicole Bonnet and solve the murders. You get a unique opportunity to think like an agent and use FBI type crime lab equipment. The graphics were great and in each location you felt you were a part of it. Mystery/adventure games have their challenges to solve, but that is also what makes them great to play!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Old-time Adventure Game Leaves Something to Be Expected I love old-time adventure games like Syberia or Return to Mysterious Island. But this one falls short. I don't know if the original version was cut down or what, but there are several problems with it. First of all, the story line has holes in it. Characters like the detective appear and you don't know where they're coming from, or you don't know where Nicole will go next and why (notably to the south of France). Reading Nicole's journal helps with that, but paragraphs of her journal (and of the documents and so on) are missing. I'm thinking that information got lost while changing the format of the game. Next, the level of challenge is ridiculously high. Whereas I didn't need a walk-through for Return to Mysterious Island, and only from time to time for Syberia, I can't hardly complete any task in this game without a walk-through. There are no hints to what needs to be done and why. For example, I still don't understand what that contraption was for in the elevator in Havana, and the way the bell was rung in the south of France didn't make any sense (either you wouldn't have needed the buckets and the plank, or then they would have needed to be connected to the bell handle with a string). I realize that some things are difficult just because the game is very linear and clumsy. For example, I couldn't put the bricks into the elevator in Havana, because I hadn't realized you could zoom in closer. So I'm disappointed, because it seems to me that this must have been a great game once, but it lost quite some quality in the process of being updated for today's computer needs, and instead of having a great time playing it, I'm mostly getting frustrated...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as Cards of Destiny Some of the solutions in this game are real logic leaps. Kind of random and not as thought out as the other A of M games. And I couldn't believe they even had a shuffle board puzzle - like the kind you get in hidden object games! For shame! Just okay.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Most maddening game ever I wanted to like this game, but the game play is counter intuitive. I couldn't figure out how to do anything without accessing the walkthrough. Plus the introduction goes on forever, and I can't just click through it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hunt for the Puppeteer This game is a waste of time. I liked it in the beginning but on the puzzle to get through the passage there is no reset. Cannot get help with it as it is random. Can not finish the game! Cannot get past the puzzle. This gave is very aggravating.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dreadful game This is the worst game I've tried on Big fish. Although I had picked up all the clues I couldn't leave the darn house, no matter what I tried. Even hints couldn't help leave.
