About Murdered: Soul Suspect

Murdered: Soul Suspect is a dark detective thriller with a supernatural twist: the mystery you are solving is your own murder from the afterlife. Play as Ronan O’Connor, a Salem police detective with a checkered past, whose life is brought to an untimely end by a brutal killer. Trapped in a limbo world called Dusk, he is unable to find peace until he can bring his killer to justice. Using his new-found supernatural abilities, Ronan is free to explore the town of Salem, Massachusetts, from his shadowy afterlife. Unable to communicate with the detectives on his case, Ronan must read the minds of the living, influencing their thoughts and actions. As part of his investigation, he must interrogate the ghosts of Salem’s past citizens to piece together the puzzle, while battling demonic spirits to save his soul and uncover the shocking truth about who is responsible for his death.

Summary

Murdered: Soul Suspect is a title with many great ideas, but not great execution. Its intriguing story had me hooked from beginning to end and the town of Salam brought much history to its troubled past.The idea of being a ghost was presented well, it’s execution was hindered by too much hand holding and no penalties to the choices and deductions the player makes.

We like

  • Solving cases is great fun
  • Plethora of collectables that expand on backstory of both the town and characters
  • Good story

We dislike

  • Extensive hand holding throughout case solving
  • Most powers are limited to key events
  • Incorrect case deductions have no real penalty
