Synopsis


Detective Ronan O'Connor knows what it takes to investigate a murder. He's interrogated witnesses, inspected crime scenes, the whole gamut. But there's one murder that he never thought he'd be in the position to investigate — his own. Pick up his badge and step into his shoes after he has been brutally killed. But as a detective with a checkered past and a strong-willed personality that has left hardened criminals cowering in the corners of interrogation rooms, death won't stand in the way of you solving this crime. In fact, your soul won't rest until you've brought justice to those responsible. You won't find peace until you've unraveled the mystery of your own murder.

Dive into an engrossing storyline that puts a twist on the typical murder mystery by making you both the victim and the detective in Murdered: Soul Suspect. Unable to move on from the limbo world of Dusk, you must roam Salem, Massachusetts from the shadowy afterlife and attempt to uncover the truth. Unable to communicate with the detectives on your case, you must rely on your newfound supernatural abilities to get things moving in the case. You must also battle demonic spirits, bent on devouring your soul in an attempt to reclaim their own. Full of shocking twists, hair-raising turns and the ultimate homicide investigation, Murdered: Soul Suspect takes you on an unusual journey to find the killer responsible for taking your life — will you uncover the truth?

    Great, Interactive Ghost Story

    I was worried when I first picked up this game because of awful reviews given on gaming websites. However, I'm a fan of ghost stories AND detective games, so I had to give it a shot when I was able to pick it up for around $30. The first thing that struck me was the atmosphere. The art style is very well designed and portrays two separate worlds, the real world and the ghost world, very well on one screen at the same time. The voice acting for the main characters is incredibly well done, although some of the random characters walking around are average. The sound in this game is surprisingly important, as often times you'll hear enemies shriek long before you ever realize they're there. The collectables are a lot of fun to hunt down and find, with many of them providing extra Ghost stories that are narrated over a still picture. They are wonderfully done, and add a lot to the world of the game. The investigations are fun, if not terribly deep, and you never really fail an investigation so you don't have to worry about starting over. The "combat" is... a little wonky, and really is best viewed if you try it more as a puzzle than an action game. It's designed to try and sneak up on your enemies, since there's no way to directly confront them. The story is everything I hoped I'd get from a good ghost story, and is why I have enjoyed playing this game so much. The main character is #surprisingly# incredibly likable, finding information about the killer is intriguing, and the side ghost stories can be especially fun. However, a fair warning: If you're considering buying this for your young teen or child, please consider that this game is rated M for Mature for a good reason. There are acts that are described in the game or shown in cutscenes that, while not gory, can be downright disturbing, and sometimes involve children. The game isn't perfect though, and suffers from a few technical faults. The game hiccups at weird, random locations sometimes, and can make it feel a little sluggish. Other times, you'll get spotted when you think you're clearly behind a wall, only to find out you had a tiny spot of you sticking through but didn't notice because of the camera angle. Minor details for a story game, but makes it seem not as polished as it could of been. Overall, if you like games for the story, or you like a good ghost story. If you're unsure, I would highly recommend this game once it drops in price a little bit or goes on sale. Definitely have enjoyed ever minute of the game. I paid 30 and don't regret it at all.

    Over promised, under delivered.

    The trailers for this game looked fantastic. The sales pitch of open world game play from beyond the grave, investigating your own murder, and seeing some spooky sites in Salem, MA. Well, here it is. The game has decent graphics, but not what you would expect from the nexgen consoles. The world is extremely small and you are blocked at nearly every turn from getting outside of the main paths. The game plays more like a story rather than an actual game. Run here, run there, press this button sequence and then watch the cut scenes. Even the "combat" left much to be desired. No action, sneak up on a demon and press a button sequence and voila! There is absolutely no replay value to this game because it will be the same every time you play it. Same story, same sequence of events, same roaming patterns of demons, and the same lackluster finale.

    Game is redundant and gets boring

    I was really hoping to find a good XBOX one game. I have both next gen counsels so I picked up this game for Xbox one. Graphics are old gen if you are looking for stellar graphics not here. The game gets boring after awhile you walk down a street look for items, talk to a ghost help solve why they died and the missions. The missions started off okay but after a while same stuff you have to look for clues to solve your murder with a girl to help when needed. The demons are out to get you so you either kill them or hide and run by when they are turned other direction. I got bored after an hour. I’m not a huge fan of Thief either so if you like that game you may like this one. Just redundant over and over same stuff. Traded it in after a week I didn’t even care to finish it I got bored of it. Overall boring and not a next Gen game worth owning.

    This is a game that needs to be approached with the right mindset in order to be fully and properly understood. Murdered is an interactive movie with a story straight out of the best 90's b-reel supernatural horror flicks that dominated the video store of an era long bygone. The challenge level is extremely low but the mood and nighttime atmosphere the game evokes are hard to deny. Destined for Steam Sale must-buy status, Murdered is a game that will engage you and take you back to a simpler time, even as it celebrates its b-movie heritage and paper-thin actual gameplay.

    Awesome Creepy Game

    I really enjoyed this game. The plot is very dark and twisted. A cool ghost mystery unravels as you search for clues to solve you're own murder. There are cool abilities that you unlock throughout the game, like walking through walls, and poltergiesting objects, which really adds to the ghostly atmosphere throughout. There's a lot of extra content and collectibles which all seem to add to the story and enhance the creepy vibe. There are many side quests which feel rewarding to complete as you help others solve their unsolved murders. All in all, this is a great game, especially for under $20.

    I got the game thinking that it would have all of the things that I would like in a game like this, but it didn't. Although I did play it for sometime, I began to become very bored by the game; it felt as if the story wasn't going anywhere honestly. So I wanted to return it but I couldn't because of federal laws (load of bull) and then I tried to trade it into GameStop, but they were only going to give me a dollar for it when I just paid $19, so I just said forget it and it's been collecting dust in my cabinet ever since.

    Good Game for early ONE adopters

    Fairly good story and length to the game. However, the story is very linear and does not allow for much player choice. If the player doesn't do exactly what the game wants or follow the determined path, then the game becomes frustrating. The collectibles are a good addition, but some of them are in some pretty obscure places and there is no way to return to an area without replaying the entire chapter. The game is one of the view that was out early for Xbox ONE and so for that reason, I would recommend it for early ONE adopters, but it will suffer in comparison later.

    Before you pickup this game I would say do a bit of research on the gameplay this game is not for the action lover but more for the person who loves an interesting story and solving puzzles. The combat in this game and action is nearly non existent but does that mean it is a bad game nope. I found this game to be more of a modern take on the classic point and click adventures. If you are a fan of heavy rain and detective game I say this is a game for you. If you are a fan of high octane 3rd person action games then you may want to pass on this one.
