The Hardy Boys: The Perfect Crime would be a good idea as a Flash game that you can spend a few minutes playing at the office when the boss isn’t looking. But as a full-scale adventure game, it’s a boring failure that left me with a throbbing headache and a sore neck from craning closer to the screen to find the one object I needed to move along. As more of these hidden-object games are released, the stories attached to them need to become more involving and the visual presentation more sophisticated, or they’ll suck the fun right out of a genre that has hung on by its fingernails for years.
While many might think this deserves 0 or 1 star, it earns a 1.5 because it's not as terrible as The Broken Clues, plus it has a couple of OK mini-games and a story with a little sense of humor. Although the game's English has its moments, many other games take the cake.
The developer that does the Nancy Drew series has nothing to do with the Hardy Boys: The Perfect Crime. A better name for the game would be The Hardy Boys: The Perfect Example of a Poorly Produced Hidden Object Game. That's the job of a game reviewer – to save you time and money on the bad ones. Well, consider your time saved and wallet intact!
