The biggest setback is that the repetitiveness of the gameplay breaks the flow of the story. As you learn more details about the murder, your interest is naturally intensified. But because the majority of objects you have to seek are irrelevant to the story, it takes your mind away from the grand scheme of things.
Seasons of Mystery: The Cherry Blossom Murders is definitely worth a try for those craving a no-nonsense, attractively packaged hidden object game with a mystery story to unravel.
