Review of complete demo:

I would really like to know if the game gets better. I was a fan of this series and also love HOGS and thought this would be a gamers dream for me. However, teeny tiny objects (and those of you who may have read my reviews before know this is never an issue for me) and a timer on some puzzles dragged me into frustration. The test tube scene was very trying for me. Finding a bullet and cigarette **** was a joke.

On the other hand, the graphics are crisp and clear and some minis are fun..

Wish I had more play to judge the game. It would be a shame to miss a good game that had a bad start.

Same here. . .
Quite disappointed that City Interactive went this route when instead they could have put the resources toward developing a 4th game for the (real) Art of Murder adventure (not H-O) series.

I have bought this game. Why is it telling me to purchase it again? And I detest wide screen.

I love the Art of Murder LFG games and would probably have liked this one. BUT they had to put timed thingies in and ruined them. The last two are HOGS
which I usually like but most do not have timed or give you a choice. Come on City, take out the timed parts or go back to the large file games. I have all three of the first games but won't buy either of these.

Nope and I sure am disappointed! Art of Murder FBI Confidential was a GREAT game and more like what I was looking for lately in a game! (ie Nancy Drew, Syberia) I looked after reading these reviews and love love love the game NO HOGs at all in it! I really hope Dev's aren't caving in !to the HOG lovers and are going to be ignoring us LFG-ers! Am downloading will edit later but if it is a HOG and not a LFG Adventure I am going to be sorely disappointed!

EDIT:
OK 37 minutes of play 3 got HOG's I am PIZZED at those Dev's for ruining such a great game! I will say this in their defense though FBI Confidential had ALOT of reading to do also and not much voice over so there really isn't much change in that part of the game but the HOG's YUCK really ruined the game!

Firstly, I am running on Win7 and an extra large screen...so for me the graphics were clear and frankly amazing...

While do think that there are fishies out there that will enjoy the game, it wasn't my cup of tea The games were hard which was AWESOME...you have to use your noodle! But the slow mouse and heavy dialogue was boring.

I love and have played all the Art Of Murder games. I bought this was on disc..big expense for such a boring game. I would not play it again nor would I have bought it if BF had it and I played the demo back then. Not For ME

Big thumbs down!! I loved the AOM games and seeing them beeing trashed up as Hidden Object BS is just painful.

No Buy and the end of a great series. Did I say there are enough silly HOGs?

Large file or Hog? Make up my mind. I can't access the left side of the screen, so pretty much unplayable anyway.

VERY angry that they turned this awesome game into a HOG. Why? Obviously they had a huge following before they changed formats. If it they don't change it back I will never play it again. So bummed!

I was so excited last night to see a new AOM large file game, downloaded it and went to bed looking forward to playing it today...only to find it's YET ANOTHER HOG!! Disappointed to say the least.

I spent all of seven minutes on this one....I was stuck on the picture.....I could not get the beards to appear to make a selection, so I tried the hats, the beards came up.....then the witness said the mustache was wrong. so I tried to get the mustaches to appear, instead I got glasses......This is not my cup of tea.....or my mug of beer......so this one is now being sent to the trash can.......happy gaming my fellow gamers.....Brenna
