Mystery Case Files: The Malgrave Incident (Wii)

 

Sometimes, you have to look closely to see what's right in front of you. That's certainly the case in the many hidden-object scenes you encounter in Mystery Case Files: The Malgrave Incident. And it's also true of the game itself. When it plays to its...

The game also features full voice work, which was quite encouraging to hear upon booting up the game. Thankfully, the performances are not too cheesy either and adds a level of mystique to the game. The music does a good job at, once again, drawing...

The (Hidden) Object of My Affection?

Great presentation; Intriguing mystery

Recycled hidden object scenes; Eyestrain from low-res graphics; No clues for puzzles

Mystery Case Files: The Malgrave Incident Review

 

The Malgrave Incident mixes old-school adventure game mechanics with a find-the-hidden-objects dynamic. Yes. It's about as fun as it sounds.

Mystery Case Files: The Malgrave Incident’s by-the-numbers mixture of archaic adventure mechanics and boring hidden object puzzles will not satisfy a vast majority of gamers, and its insanely low-resolution graphics and limited soundtrack won’t appeal...

For the many fans of the popular Mystery Case Files casual series, there's good news, bad news, and somewhere-in-between news. The good news is: there's a new Mystery Case Files! Entitled The Malgrave Incident, the bad news is that you need to own a...

Nice variety of locations to explore; includes multiplayer functionality; decent puzzles; lengthy play time

Poor visual quality; clunky Wii controls; tedious movement cinematics; repetitive music; lack of user-friendly casual game staples makes it strangely inaccessible

When the dust settles, the Wii-exclusive Malgrave Incident proves distinctly inferior to its PC predecessors apart from its multiplayer functionality.

Review: Mystery Case Files: The Malgrave Incident (Nintendo Wii)

 

I should close out this section by also pointing out that the game suffers from slowdown on occasion, which has to be a first for either an adventure game or hidden object scenes. Words can't express how disappointed I am with this thing.

Mystery Case Files: The Malgrave Incident isn’t a very good Wii game. It’s not a good adventure game. It’s not a good hidden object game. It’s not a good Mystery Case Files game. For thirty dollars you’re getting something that pales in comparison to...

Mystery Case Files: The Malgrave Incident Review

 

Mystery Case Files: The Malgrave Incident is a captivating mystery hidden in a sometimes frustrating point-and-click adventure.

A fascinating island setting to explore ; Hidden-object scenes are absorbing ; Tells a satisfying, old-fashioned tale of mystery

Point-and-click adventure aspect is frequently frustrating

The process of scouring an image to look for beards, bananas, and the letter "B" is engrossing because the environments are so full of fascinating details that you almost feel as if you've stumbled into an actress's cluttered dressing room or a...

Review: Mystery Case Files: The Malgrave Incident for Wii

 

The Mystery Case Files games have a rather impressive pedigree. It is a series of casual, hidden object games created by Big Fish Games, primarily for Windows and Macs. The first entry was Mystery Case Files: Huntsville, back in 2005. There have since...

Interesting story with adventure elements that require players to find objects to use in scenes and solve puzzles. The scenes look pretty. Simple controls. Can play competitive multiplayer games. Players can work together through the main campaign....

In some cases it seems like an HDTV is required to properly find objects. If you don’t have a good TV that’s properly adjusted, it can be difficult to read the text stating which objects you have to find. Some objects can be really hard to find since...

A sinister island of junk awaits you.

Nintendo had massive success publishing Big Fish Games' Mystery Case Files: MillionHeir on Nintendo DS a few years back. When interviewed by Cubed3, the development team mentioned that they did acknowledge the fact that the Wii was a viable platform...

Nintendo and Big Fish Games have got a massive success on their hands with Mystery Case Files: The Malgrave Incident. Piecing together a plentiful supply of expertly crafted hidden object scenes with lots of clever puzzles throughout, heaps of...
