Murdered: Soul Suspect
A fun game but is it worth the $60.00?
With this game you get the GOOD and the BAD. Let's start with the bad.(1) The game is just way to short for the cost of the game if you run thru it you can beat it in 6 hour if you want to get 100% completion maybe 8-10 hours. (2) The demon encounters were just terrible I wish they never made it into the game they're way to easy but happen enough to be annoying. (3) The Town just doesn't look up to par with current gen graphics. The Good. (1) The story keeps you wanting more. The character collectibles also give you more info on this world. (2) solving a mystery is fun when your collecting clues but they seem a Little to easy to solve.(3) you can possess a Cat. Looking back at this game I feel like there next attempt will blow people's minds but this just seems like a rough draft I would recommend you rent this game.
I really don't know why this game gets such a bad rap. It really is a great game. Yes, it is on the short side, and there isn't a lot of replay value, unless you missed some items and just want to collect everything. I like to explore, so I collected as I went along, and it took me a good while to complete the game. I have read about people saying they beat it in 4-6 hours, and I guess if you just do the main objectives, yes, you probably could. But why would anyone want to? There is so much more story to be told. The graphics are pretty good, and the voice acting is great. The gameplay is pretty good, but really, there just isn't much as far as mechanics; this is a story game, not a fighting game (there is some, just very little). I felt it was worth full price. At the very least, it's worth a sale or pre-owned price. If you like story in your games, I am confident you will like this one!
Awesome Game! Give it a shot!
The game delivered in both the fun and horror aspects. While it might not be scary to some (not your traditional scary game: e.g. Dead Space), the gruesome story it paints and a glimpse at Salem's history definitely gave me the chills as I progressed. If you've read the various reviews, you're either going to love it or hate it. The only "bad" thing about the game is that it's a tad bit short to justify the cost. I 100% (all achievements) it and thought I was taking my time being very meticulous when searching for the collectibles, and yet I still managed to complete it in about ~5 hours. Overall I was very pleased and would definitely recommend the game. If you like spooky-story-driven games then give this a shot and you will not be disappointed.
This is a Great underrated game don't believe the bad reviews this games story is amazing!!! Shame more people won't get this game because unreliable reviews
Don't let the rating turn you away. This an awesome game I loved the atmosphere and gameplay! Give it a try!!! Very underrated !!
Murdered: Soul Suspect..... SUCKED. Glitches everywhere, poor graphics, lots of frame drop, screen tearing and lagging (even on X1), tons of continuity errors, "combat" was beyond pathetic and sparse, absolutely NO replay value, side "collectibles" always seemed repeated, all NPCs had recycled outfits faces and voices, no in game map system, in some cases it asked for "what made this sound" and the objects available DO NOT make sound - for instance "stain" - which was the correct option! The game took a mere 10 hours to complete to 100% and I had it figured out in 20 minutes who the killer was, I played it through hoping there would be a plot twist or something but no. Returning ASAP not worth the money - it's better off being a 4.99 "games with gold".
So much potential lost in a sea of wtfs
So I rented this game and I start it up I was starting to like it but then I realized this game sucks, first off it's really boring there's not much action the story is a pretty good idea but it failed to execute properly no action. It doesn't make me want to play more it makes me bored, so the story is you die then you need to find your killer sounds good right now add lots of walking, talking to characters that don't even matter, and fighting annoying demons the really Annoy me.There's no combat when you engage a demon you have to go behind it press RT then a quick time event that's different every time. If they see you they take your soul. Don't buy this game it's not worth it.
A RENTAL FOR SURE!!!!
1) only approx 6 hrs long
2) no new game plus..even for the side quests
3)below par graphics even for unreal engine.
4)could use more villains
5) could use more abilities
7) creative idea in my opinion
I wasn't RUNNING OUT to buy this game day of release, but figured it would be something decent to play. WRONG! Some people MIGHT enjoy this game, but was just a big disappointment to me. The demon encounters was the first red flag for me, terrible. Very short game, no suspense, zero replay value. Almost glad it was short game, because I barely wanted to even finish it.
The Mystery is the Game Itself
I watched the trailers, I took the bait. I purchased it on release day. it has about 10 hours of blind game play. You are supposed to solve your own murder, but there is little investigation effort put into the game and it is a linear progression game. There isn't much challenge associated with the "demons" either. Overall. The game has a good story line, just a poor execution of it. This game could have been a lot better. I wouldn't recommend this game to anyone who likes replay value or is expecting anything great from it.
