Mystery Case Files might be lacking in personality (sorry, bad puns don't equal personality), but it is an engaging diversion. If all it offered was a seek-and-find game it would have gotten old fast, but the many variations and additional mini-games keep the player engaged as it moves along briskly. There are several entries in the series available online, so hopefully we'll get a few more here on the DS.

Mystery Case Files: MillionHeir werkt verrassend goed en biedt voldoende afwisseling om je een tijdje zoet te houden. Toch wordt het op den duur wat saai om steeds maar weer dobbelstenen en lepels te zoeken in vijvers of diamanten en vlaggen in een mijn. Het achtergrondverhaal dat de locaties en de puzzels bij elkaar moet houden is niet sterk genoeg om de aandacht vast te houden. Maar voor een casual spel is dat ook helemaal niet zo belangrijk, wil je gewoon even een paar minuten bezig zijn met puzzelen dan is dit een prima spel.

Mystery Case Files is a fine game but that mostly thanks to a lower price. Also you can best first check to see if this is your thing by for instance trying out the demo first

A good effort on Nintendo's DS - especially with the inclusion of wireless multiplayer and quick puzzles. If a virtual game of finding objects in a 2D scene floats your boat, then Mystery Case Files: MillionHeir is by far the most suitable game for you, but if you're looking for something a little bit more exciting then perhaps look elsewhere.

Mystery Case Files: MillonHeir is een gelikte game die prima met de mogelijkheden van het genre en de DS weet om te gaan. Niet ieder onderdeel is even sterk uitgewerkt maar het totaalplaatje ziet er simpelweg goed uit. Als je je echter niet direct in de huidige doelgroep van Nintendo bevindt is de kans echter klein dat je ook maar enigszins warm loopt voor deze game.

There isn't much to the game, but with plenty of paintings to scour, it makes for an enjoyable eye exercise.

Mystery Case Files: MillionHeir does what exactly what it sets out to do. It's a perfect installment for the Touch Generation series. Our mothers, girlfriends, grandparents, and other non-gaming family members will find themselves loving this title. It captures the PC look and feel, and can really pull you in for the whole Story Mode. Sadly, it's over far too quickly. I can easily recommend this title for casual and non-gamers. As for the rest of us, it's worth checking out, but don't expect the next big DS release out of it.

If a game in which you simply spend your time searching for objects inside 2D images doesn't sound like a complete turn-off to you, Mystery Case Files: MillionHeir is definitely worth a look. It might appear to be little more than a series of cleverly constructed paintings accompanied by ambient sound effects, but the amusing Story mode will likely take you several hours to get through, and the randomized item lists add a good amount of replay value to boot.

The game is just too limited for me to recommend it, especially when there are other Touch Generations games that are so much more entertaining. Tetris DS, CrossworDS, heck, even Professor Layton. Now, it’s true that none of them involve looking for tiny objects amid a sea of kitsch, but trust me when I say that such a task quickly become monotonous, and the plotline only distracts from one’s enjoyment of the title.

At the end of the day, MillionHeir doesn’t do a very good of taking a well-established PC franchise and bringing it to a hand-held system. With so many flaws, it’s pretty hard to actually recommend MillionHeir to anyone. Unless you’re a fan of the genre, gamers should stay away from this game. That is, unless you want to show your support to Nintendo’s casual products.

Does that mean MillionHeir fails at finding fun? Not entirely. Like I said, the initial joy of locating a baseball bat in a crowd of crap's certainly enjoyable. Whether or not you'll enjoy finding that same baseball bat several times over, though, is up to you. And, yes, minigames do interrupt the tireless searching (usually either a standard put-the-puzzle-pieces-together puzzle or a Rube Goldberg-style brain teaser), so the game does offer a few other things to do. You can even challenge a friend to see who's faster at finding hidden stuff. If that doesn't sound exciting, you obviously don't know what it's like to be a true detective

We can see what Big Fish Games was trying to do here but in the end, all you've got is a weak hide-and-seek game that's as laborious as it is devoid of fun.
