Critic Reviews for Agatha Christie: The ABC Murders

Agatha Christie: The ABC Murders is a very enjoyable point and click adventure game featuring a varied gameplay experience, a good plot, charming characters and great atmosphere. The game's short length and low challenge level, however, prevent it from being anywhere near a masterpiece. Agatha Christie: The ABC Murders is not a game that will blow your mind, but if you're looking to spend a few hours with an enjoyable adventure title then it's definitely the game for you.

At just 6-7 hours for a single playthrough and with little replayability outside of the achievements, I'm not entirely sure that it does justify that high a price, especially when there are other similar titles that offer more for a lower price point.

That's just one of the many things that make The ABC Murders feel unpolished and a bit rough around the edges.

If you're like this writer and enjoy even a decent police procedural game – especially in a medium where they're dishearteningly absent – Agatha Christie: The ABC Murders is a deserving title in your mystery fiction library. The video game adaptation may lack presentation value, but a strong plot, fun deductions, and a rewarding conclusion make up for it in the end.

Agatha Christie – The ABC Murders will likely please fans of the prolific author's work with its accessibility and faithfulness to its source material. Just don't expect too much of a challenge in the gameplay department.

A wonderful, but short, plot that will have you believing you own real life detective skills.

I enjoyed myself, though. The ABC Murders makes for lighthearted detective fare, clean and colorful like a Saturday morning cartoon. And make no mistake—when I say it cribs from Frogware's Sherlock Holmes games, I don't say it with any malice. I'd love to see more classic mysteries turned into adventure games, and Frogware just happens to be the current studio to beat.
