Overall, the game is a great translation of the old Clue with a new and modern twist. It will keep you entertained with great graphics and wonderful sound and gameplay -- good clean fun for the entire family.
Clue: Murder at Boddy Mansion does justice to its board game heritage, and that says a lot. New and experienced gamers alike who enjoy playing detective will find more than enough value in this game.

The game occasionally stops working when in multiplayer mode and the murder scenes may startle very young children but otherwise this is a faithfully reproduced and creatively enhanced version of a family favourite.

Overall, this is one of the best translations to the PC that Hasbro has ever done. Beyond the simple fault of some extra features that weren't implemented to their best effect, there aren't really many faults with the game. There is one bug that locks the game when a large number of characters are played by the computer, but this happened rarely. Basically, if you love the board game, you're going to want this version. And if you haven't played the board game, buy this instead.

Sechs Leute laufen durch ein englisches Herrenhaus und verdächtigen sich gegenseitig des Mordes. Aus der isometrischen Ansicht oder der Vogelperspektive steuern Sie eine der hübsch animierten Figuren durch die Räume und suchen nach Hinweisen. Wer das gleichnamige Brettspiel kennt, wird hier Spannung und Spaß erwarten. Tatsächlich bietet Hasbros originalgetreue PC-Umsetzung eine gelungene Atmosphäre. Leider gibt es hier aber zu wenig Abwechslung, um dauerhaft zu begeistern.
The sights and sounds of this CLUE are irresistible, and that may be enough to make you want to see and hear it. But it’s not enough to make you want to play it.
