My first Try-It Tuesday game for October is the ghostly MURDERED: SOUL SUSPECT developed by Airtight Games and published in 2014 by Square Enix.
Ronon O’Connor is a detective who must solve his own murder from beyond the grave in Salem, Massachusetts. This is a third-person mystery story game that mixes a bit of Ghost Whisperer with The Crow and Dick Tracy.
It felt a lot like a Choose-Your-Own-Adventure story without any actual choices. I’m not much of a fan of “games” that are more movie than game. I would have enjoyed MURDERED: SOUL SUSPECT more as an open-world action-adventure game with fewer quicktime events and cutscenes. Supernatural powers, like poltergeist and possession, were cool concepts but underused.
Rated M for “mature,” with blood, intense violence, strong language, and alcohol use.
