The title of the game already got me into it before I even played it and kept me there as the story kept going.
Depending on where you live, the game could be a lot of money, so you might want to wait for a sale to purchase this game.
Murdered: Soul Suspect revolves around Ronon O'Connor who gets murdered in the beginning of the game and must figure out who killed him to be able to get to his wife, Julia, who was murdered 3 years ago.
After the death you turn into a ghost, who can teleport, walk through walls (but not all of them), possess humans, influence humans and you stay undetected as no human can see you except for Mediums. While being a ghost you are supposed to find out who your murderer is and and find out why he killed you, and gaining some allies along the way.
The game was very well story-driven, exploring all of Salem, interacting with certain items and ghosts, and mind reading humans. You're also finding and combining clues to progress the story so you know more and more about your killer every time. In every investigation, you can find special artifacts to unlock a separate story so you understand a little more about the location you are investigating, and keep you busy if you like to search for them.
The graphics for this game were good, considering my computer isn't the best, and I really enjoyed the overall atmosphere of the setting, I would have enjoyed a little more change to the buildings, cutscenes, and investigation sites, though.
The more I got into the story and the game, the more I got hooked and kept wanting to play more, that told me it was a good game, and the collectibles made me want to go back and play a second time.
The game sounds amazing, however, it has some downfalls.
My #1 would have to be the Demons. Yes, they add some excitement to the game, something to execute or get by, however, if you leave the area and return, you have to execute or pass by the demons all over again, giving it no purpose to execute them in the first place. They sometimes give you frustration if you're trying to execute one and the demon screams and chases you, I know it frustrated me alright.
It also seems that the version of DirectX you have affects the fps and graphics. My laptop has DX9 while my PC has DX10, and my PC played a lot better and smoother than my laptop, even though it still played alright. I would not recommend to someone with DX8 or lower, even though you shouldn't even have that.
The entire game itself was easy to understand, redirecting you to a new location, creating cutscenes on who to follow and where to go, and reminding you where your target(s) is.
Besides those two downfalls that I found, this game is a great game overall and I would recommend it to someone who likes simple story-driven adventure games that have a twist to them.
