Video games: Solve a killing in 'Murdered: Soul Suspect'

  • Updated: July 31, 2014 - 10:23 PM

‘Murdered’ makes a killing

As “Murdered: Soul Suspect” ($60 for PS3 /4, Xbox 360 /One, PC; rated Mature) begins, detective Ronan O’Connor is thrown out of a window and shot to death in the street. Trapped in the foggy world of ghosts, he is unable to move on until he deals with the unfinished business of his murder. It’s a compelling setup, and the game is worth a look. The big problem is that the game has to shove you along the mystery’s path whether or not you’re good at sleuthing. Random guessing will get you to the end of the story easily enough. “Murdered: Soul Suspect” delivers a solid ghost story, but the one mystery that Ronan can’t solve is how to make a detective video game where you actually feel like a detective.
