Summary

Role-playing games originally began as text-only adventures over twenty years ago. But things have changed; the genre has become more diverse and almost divided in terms of gameplay possibilities. Final Fantasy springs to mind with most gamers, but mystery games can be equally involving. Cluedo: Murder at Blackwell Grange is one such game for PC.

After a murder takes place (typical) at Blackwell Range, you are called upon to solve the mysterious events at the mansion. You must determine who did the crime, where the crime took place and what was used as the murder weapon.

Your challenge as a detective will include some classic Cluedo gameplay incorporated into a highly atmospheric and interactive game. Your journey will have you searching for clues and examining any findings. Cluedo takes place mostly in the house where the murder was committed, creating a chilling atmosphere. Environments are beautifully rendered, featuring all characters from the original board game in full 3D. Colonel Mustard and the delectable Miss Scarlett are some of the game’s more memorable characters, but everyone is a suspect and you must remain faithful to your duties as a detective.

A multi-player option over LAN offers something new to Cluedo that only a video game can accomplish. Whether your playing head to head or co-operatively, the experience makes the game much more sociable and enjoyable. And it’s quite possible that this gameplay addition alone makes Cluedo: Murder at Blackwell Grange a thoroughly playable experience.
