Παραδέχομαι ότι θα ήθελα να είναι λίγο πιο ζόρικο το “The ABC Murders”, να μη μας παίρνει τόσο απ’ το χεράκι, να μη δίνει τόση σημασία στο ξεκλείδωμα trophies και achievements, αλλά να επικεντρώνεται περισσότερο στην ουσία ενός adventure game. Οι εποχές όμως έχουν αλλάξει και πολλοί τίτλοι μοιραία επιλέγουν κι επιδιώκουν ν’ αρέσουν σε όσο το δυνατόν περισσότερους, προκειμένου να μεγιστοποιήσουν τις πωλήσεις τους. Είναι κάτι που πρέπει να σεβαστούμε, καθώς σε τελική ανάλυση εξασφαλίζει την ύπαρξη και βιωσιμότητα ενός gaming studio. Σε κάθε περίπτωση, ο ερχομός του “The ABC Murders”, σε συνδυασμό και με την πρόσφατη εμφάνιση του “Subject13”, φανερώνει ότι μπορούμε να έχουμε βάσιμες ελπίδες ότι η Microids αργά ή γρήγορα ενδέχεται να ξανακάνει ένα “μπαμ” στον χώρο. Το αν αυτό θα γίνει με το “Syberia 3” ή με κάποιον άλλο τίτλο, μένει να φανεί.

Agatha Christie’s The ABC Murders è un gioco profondo a cui manca qualcosa per essere ancora più bello. Forse il ritmo, o forse la suspense, chissà: la sensazione di trovarsi seriamente in pericolo non c’è mai e, per quanto gli enigmi di tipo logico e l’uso delle “cellule grigie” siano assolutamente consoni all’occasione, la loro ripetitività e la loro implementazione mi hanno impedito di scendere emotivamente nei panni del protagonista, dal quale ho mantenuto un certo distacco per tutto il tempo. Non si tratta di un elemento cruciale per la buona riuscita di un gioco, ma secondo me calarsi facilmente nell’eroe aiuta parecchio ad apprezzarne le imprese. Per questo motivo il mio voto avrà una giustificazione prevalentemente “tecnica”, mentre dal punto di vista emotivo non mi ha lasciato molto di più di un cruciverba della Settimana Enigmistica. E chi darebbe mai un brutto voto alla Settimana Enigmistica?

Agatha Christie: The ABC Murders is a gentle game, constantly giving players information via observation, conversation or reasoning, without ever pressuring them to solve the puzzles and to move forward with the story. The oversized personality of Hercule Poirot is always at the center of the action, and his methodical approach makes for a very good fit with the mechanics of the adventure and mystery genre, although the pacing is too slow at times. Agatha Christie has created a very interesting narrative in The ABC Murders, but it's a shame that the video game stays as close to the book and the television adaptation as it does and fails to surprise gamers in any major way. The Microids title has the potential to spawn a long term Hercule Poirot mystery franchise, and I am eager to see what the company can deliver if it has access to more resources and is willing to innovate a little when it comes to the mechanics.

Agatha Christie - The ABC Murders is a satisfying point-and-click whodunit adventure with plenty of puzzles.

Agatha Christie: The ABC Murders è indubbiamente un buon titolo nonostante le problematiche che lo affliggono. La storia proposta è di grandissima qualità, ma il suo essere fedele al romanzo potrebbe rovinare parzialmente l'esperienza ai lettori di quest'ultimo. Sebbene generalmente semplice, il gioco riesce a divertire tramite un numero relativamente ampio di attività, le quali vengono minate in parte da un sistema di controllo più adatto all'accoppiata mouse e tastiera piuttosto che al controller. Se amate i gialli vi consigliamo di tenere d'occhio il titolo dei Microids, approfittando magari di qualche offerta per mettervi le mani sopra.

Agatha Christie – The ABC Murders will likely please fans of the prolific author's work with its accessibility and faithfulness to its source material. Just don't expect too much of a challenge in the gameplay department.

The ABC Murders es una aventura interesante, pero bastante sencilla en su concepción, que no toma riesgos y que más allá de sus rompecabezas más puros no supondrá ningún problema a cualquier jugador que se enfrente a ella. Destaca su estilo gráfico, aunque podría haber trabajado mejor sus animaciones, y una historia que sigue paso por paso los hechos narrados en la novela de Agatha Christie.

The ABC Murders wirkt wie eine Light-Version des Sherlock-Holmes-Prinzips, denn nahezu alles ist eine ganze Ecke kürzer, schlichter und weniger komplex: Von der Untersuchung des Tatorts über die etwas karge Comic-Grafik bis hin zur einsteigerfreundlichen Umsetzung der Schlussfolgerungen. Die klassische Kriminalgeschichte wirkt bei weitem nicht so ausführlich, abwechslungs- und wendungsreich wie bei der modernen Konkurrenz. Es gibt zwar erfreulich viele Dialogrätsel, das Fingerspitzengefühl beim Verhör wirkt sich aber leider kaum auf den Spielverlauf aus. Wer eine Art Krimi zum Mitspielen sucht, wird aber trotzdem befriedigend unterhalten, denn die gemütliche Stimmung der Romanvorlage rund um den charmanten Hercule Poirot wird gut eingefangen.

Studio Microids ma jednak gotową bazę, bardzo dobrego bohatera i udaną oprawę graficzną. Być może w kolejnej grze warto byłoby wyjść poza opowieści Christie - już bez tylu pudełek do otworzenia.

Rozkošný anglický venkov, slavný abecední vrah a ještě slavnější detektiv. Z této kombinace vzešlo velmi atmosférické dobrodružství Hercula Poirota, které ovšem kazí přílišná herní linearita.

The A.B.C. Murders will hardly tax the little grey cells, but a pleasing visual style and charismatic lead protagonist make this Agatha Christie adaptation more than merely child’s play. Just keep the sound volume low.

I truly believe that this game would make for a good mobile game - the observation sections and box puzzles that require you to push, pull levers and buttons all share strengths that would work perfectly on a touch screen. But as a PC game ABC Murders unfortunately falls short in terms of meaningful interaction, and instead you’re left with repetitive point-and-click game that has poor voice acting and staggers enjoyment with heaps of filler puzzles.

Game Watcher (Feb 15, 2016)
I can’t really recommend Agatha Christie’s The ABC Murders to anyone. Fans of the book will appreciate the alternate ending but be disappointed in the cartoony style, the lack of pace or urgency to the investigation, and the atrociously comical voice acting. Adventure game fans on the other hand may like the 3D object puzzles but otherwise be disappointed that it’s all so easy and filled with numerous time wasting moments and parts where they’re not trusted to come to a conclusion themselves. I didn’t hate The ABC Murders, in fact it was quite a relaxing game, but there are hundreds of better detective adventure games out there and most of them will have far less flaws.
