Just got this game yesterday and there has been plenty of playing time since then. I have a before and after school daycare and played this game last night to check out how to play. I have to say, it kept my interest long past just trying to get my bearings. The kids are playing now and they love it. You can play the game cooperatively so I have a brother and sister who disagree on everything working together to solve these mysteries. It’s stimulating and the mini games are great as well. For me my biggest challenge is finding activities that everyone wants to participate in. I feel like there is a wide range of ages this game appeals to, it is not gender specific and it makes them use their brains. Thumbs up!

Somehow this gem of a game seems to have drifted under the radar, which is a shame because it is one of the best games of the year.

The game plays out as roughly a videogame version of Clue. After you select your detective (which doesn’t change anything but the one liners thrown out during turns), you are settled with a mystery to solve. You can move your character through multiple rooms looking for clues which are shown with big question marks. Searching around the rooms can also find you bonus tokens which can be used to move through more rooms or investigate more items.

Each clue generally launches a minigame, some difficult and entertaining (such as picking locks and breaking combinations), some painfully easily (the bribing minigame is a waste). After you get the clue you try to determine whether it helps identify one of four characteristics of the villian, which can then make a sketch of as you go.

After each turn, suspects move from room to room and bad guys may make things more difficult by turning off lights or locking doors. Playing cards that you earn every turn can help get past such problems.

It can be competitive or cooperative, but the cooperative story mode, which features great and funny dialogue is my personal favorite.

I literally have trouble thinking of a person that wouldn’t enjoy this game for a short or long session with others (it could get a bit dry alone). A hearty recommend from me.

Bought this game a day after it came out, could not find any reviews. Played it with a 13 yr old and 5 yr old – GREAT GAME! Both kids love it. The only complaint we have is that it does not seem to save our place in the game. Which means each time we start the game again it makes us play the same scenes over – somewhat frustrating but otherwise a great family game.

I bought this yesterday – the day it came out ! I usually think Wii is good for the kids but I’m never that engaged and they are for a short time- this had the whole family enthralled for ages! It had us on the edge of our seats as we all worked together to try and identify the culprit! Wow what a game, I can’t wait till they’re home from school tomorrow so I can play again! Kids are 7 and up! Buy it you won’t be disappointed! FYI I never write reviews but this was so good I had to tell you!

I am a 20 year old college student and I thoroughly enjoy this game. It’s fun, just challenging enough to make you think, and has a cute storyline. I especially enjoy playing it with my friends on co-op mode. DEFINITELY a must buy for any family with a Wii, and anyone in search of a good party video game!
