Agatha Christie: Evil Under the Sun

 

How can it be so dreary with all this sun?

Cracking story ; Fresh setting ; Plenty of evil characters

Ugly to look at ; Uninspired puzzles ; Inconsistent voice acting

All this could be redeemed if there were a few decent puzzles – or if you had a more active role in the story – but there aren’t and you don’t. Poirot spends far too much time stretching plausibility by running pointless errands and combining boring...

Agatha Christie: Evil Under The Sun Review

 

Adventure, old-school style

Fun story, the atmosphere of a good 1940s detective yarn, humorous dialogue, Hercule Poirot is the man

Terrible animation, very unforgiving game design

The bottom line is that it's impossible to recommend this title to anyone who isn?t a fairly hardcore adventure buff. The price is right ($30), and the story is solid, but this is an old-school game with old-school problems. If you can deal with that,...

As a kid who grew up playing plenty of computer games, point-and-click puzzles were always a favorite (with an Incredible Hulk game I played on my old Tandy standing out clear as day, mainly because I was stuck at one point I'll never ever get past....

I'm the last person to disparage point and click games, but the pace of this game and the breadth of its challenges do not add up to a fun time for someone who cut their teeth on games like Maniac Mansion. You know who might like this? People who...

Hercule Poirot, Agatha Christie's diminutive detective returns to solve another mystery in Agatha Christie: Evil Under the Sun. Gamers guide the mustachioed Belgian sleuth around a lush tropical island as he searches for clues that will identify the kille

Agatha Christie: Evil Under The Sun

 

There's a bit of a conundrum when it comes to Evil Under The Sun and Agatha Christie game adaptations in general, because who's likely to play them? If you're a Christie fan then you'll have already read her novels and know who the murderer is,...

Solve the case by controlling Poirot ; Ask Finger of Suspicion for hints ; Kevin Delaney voices Poirot well

Bland graphics and character motions ; Lack of pop-up information on screen ; Dull inventory ; Tiny magnifying glass pointer ; Poirot's slow walk (though this can be skipped) ; Presented in 4:3 ratio

Despite its stuffy flaws, if you enjoy murder mysteries then you'll soon be drawn in regardless and want to see it through to the end. Some story elements have been changed specifically for this game - mainly some fringe characters to help you on your...

Consumer review by:

A brilliant Game (Even for the thirty somethings)

 

If you like Agatha Christie's stories, solving puzzles or just like snooping around people's hotel rooms then this is the game for you.

Consumer review by:

too slow and actually pretty boring

 

apart from the allure of playing as poirot i honestly don't see why anyone would like this game. do yourself a favour and rent/buy 'broken sword - shadow of the templars'

Consumer review by:

Slow and Steady

 

The game was solid enough with plenty of gameplay hours willed away exploring various locations and talking to the cast of one-dimensional characters. The story itself was intricate with a number of sub-plots and the resolution contains a twist, which...
