Interesting, but below what I was expecting.

When I first heard of this game, I was euphoric. Because the theme of the game was very interesting and it was also different of what I was accustomed. I mean, being a ghost and find the way to ascend to heaven. Very tempting, right? And, the fact that it's going to be published by Square Enix made me happy, because every game published by them, have beautiful graphics. (Take, for example, Tomb Raider or Just Cause 2, among others) Let me give you an introduction: You're brutally murdered by a serial killer and you have to find clues to know what happened and gain, let's just say, inner peace. Promising, right? It is really good, don't get me wrong. The investigation is rather fun indeed and the story is interesting, even if it's pretty short. But, in my opinion, I found the gameplay somewhat boring. Like if it's a paranormal tacky L.A. Noire. Find clues, help people (Ghosts, actually), solve cases and that kind of stuff. But, maybe, what most disappointed me was the graphics. I was expecting so much more from Square Enix. I'm NOT saying that you shouldn't buy the game. You SHOULD and you probably will have tons of fun. But, if you can find it on sale, it would be better than paying the full price.

Big letdown

One of my very few pre-orders. And the reason i should not preorder things. Good base idea killed with mediocre story, some cliche characters and mostly very dumb and lazy gameplay mechanics (half of the collectibles, reused NPCs, etc.). If you think Beyond wasn't good, because that is just an interactive movie, stay the heck away, since it is just as little gameplay (except the badly executed "big train action sequence" noone asked for), without good characters/actors and story. But you can posess a cat and even meow! That is some plus.

Doesn't Disappoint

I loved this game, it has a story that grips you and it's full of interesting characters that you can explore as much or as little as you want.

The only slight problem here is the length of the game. I was actively going out of my way to find collectibles and after getting most of them I still managed to finish the game in 8 hours. If you weren't somebody who bothers with collectibles you could finish it in about 6-7 hours. I'm not sure about replay value because it is largely story driven, I think I'll be going through to get the collectibles I missed though.

Having said that, I really don't know why professional reviewers bashed this game so much, I think it's well worth the money.

Overall, if you play for story, get it! If you play for mechanics, wait until it's on sale.

I expected more

I expected more form this game, but it's definitely not bad. When I first saw Murdered Soul Suspect I was pretty excited, I though this was an paranormal detective game. Eventhough this is a detective game it's not really paranormal game it's definitely a detective game and a pretty good one. The graphics are better then I though and the gameplay is pretty fun. Only downside is the paranormal part, I was pretty hyped about it but it isn't really ''paranormal''. But it's definitely a good game.
