A Really Great Game

I just finished playing the PC version of Agatha Christie's Murder On The Orient Express and I totally loved it. It's an awesome game. But if you think you know the story, think again. This version has a surprise ending you won't be prepared for. It will not only shock you, bust just might make you cry.

You play from the viewpoint of a totally new character named Antoinette Marceau. You're character works for the train company and due to circumstances has to investigate a murder aboard the train after Hercule Poirot is injured. You must become the world famous detective's eyes and ears. And, the passengers are not the only suspects. Everyone, barring yourself and Poirot could be the killer...or killers.

You get to walk around and view not only the spectacular luxury locomotive, but several train stations and the snowy landscape. David Suchet, who long played the role of Hercule Poirot in England, lends his voice to the character of Poirot for the game. And he's absolutely wonderful and funny in the part. His conversations with your character will leave you in stitches.

This game is well worth getting. I absolutely loved it and will play it again many times. I give this game 5 Stars!
