This Week’s Detective Game
Murdered: Soul Suspect (Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3 & PS4, June 3rd)
Square-Enix’s Murdered: Soul Suspect has been flying pretty low under the radar, which usually isn’t a great sign for a big budget game like this, but the game’s premise remains intriguing. You play a ghost detective who has to solve his own murder by reading minds and influencing the still-living people around you. That’s a cool idea, and from the sounds of it, Souls Suspect is pretty much a pure adventure game (as opposed to an action game with bits of adventure stuff here and there), which is a pretty rare thing in the triple-A sphere. I’m willing to at least give this one a chance.
