Sharpe Investigations: Death on the Seine reviews and comments

Recommended-but only for real Hidden Object Game fans. Sure, as a German User and Player, you should make sure that the Game is completely in English and only the game. Thus, some Hidden Object scenes may experience unclear terms when searching for Objects. However, there should be no major Problems in this regard, because after all, even in the medium Difficulty Level, you can grab one or the other Tip. Apart From that, I can't really say much about the Story, because I play these Games mainly because of the Puzzling and finding the Objects-just by the way. The Lyrics generally click very quickly in such Games. The Puzzles are all kept quite simple so far, also here and there in the Hidden Object scenes Combinations according to the Motto-connect Object A with B To obtain C. By and large, however, the Puzzles are a little too easy for my Taste, real Cracking Nuts are not present in this Game (so far). There are also no cross-scene Objects. In Other words, if you have "got the Main Object" of a Hidden Object Scene, you use it again in the next Picture and do not carry it with you forever for possible later Uses. As an Example, If you have received a Key, you can find a Door in the next Screen for which you can use the Key directly. Thus, a certain Linearity plays into the Game ... Although I can recommend the Game exclusively for Hidden Object fans, as I said, I would wait up to a "Steam sale" to get it involved ...

American journalist Taryn Sharpe has been bored with the drafting of the city Chronicle since she has to devote herself to writing articles on gastronomy while she has a history of war reporter. His boss brought him to Paris to cover the inauguration of a new restaurant, but as soon as she arrived, she learned that the Cook was found dead in the cold room of the establishment. She immediately doubted that it was not an accident and began an investigation in the company of photographer George Haske. The developers of Icarus Games offers us here a hidden object game in the form of an investigation that is even less successful than their "runaway express mystery". First of all, it is very linear: there is very little to do in each place and we move from one to another in an imposed order. So we never go back and forth to explore and find out what to do. Then, as a result, the game is extremely short (less than 2H). Even in level of difficulty Max, the game gives too many clues and even has me several times indicated the interactive areas in the scenery or objects in the scenes of hidden objects. These are also very frequent and take up a lot of space compared to the rest of the adventure. The few mini-games are of too much ease. Finally, the story is not very captivating and there is no time to be interested in the characters since the game ends so quickly. In short, a game to be tested if you bought the bundle but it is not worth more than 1 or 2 CHF anyway and if you like to conduct detective investigations, you may as well turn to real point & click.
