The year is 2033. Your name is Tex Murphy, Private Investigator in San Francisco. You've been hired by the beautiful daughter of a university professor to uncover the facts about his death. As you begin your investigation you uncover the deaths of several prominent members of the scientific community. Are these deaths coincidental or is there something more sinister going on?
And which characters could have a motive? Could it be J. Saint Gideon, former head of British Intelligence? Could Frank Schimming, president of the largest surveillance company in the world be hiding something? Or what about Sylvia, the professor's daughter. Is she as innocent as she seems? And why is an infamous Detroit hit man in town?
You'll interact with more than 27 digitized animated characters who respond to questions, bribes, and threats.
You'll rummage through offices, warehouses and factories looking for clues. With out innovative "tree" system you can search without typing.
Use your Lotus Speeder to fly to major cities along the West Coast. This land/air vehicle is a full 3-D solid fill flight simulator.
By looking at the day of the original release, Tex Murphy: Mean Streets may be considered as a solid title especially when you look at the technical point of view. But there are some flaws that were also visible back then, that you cannot explain by game's age. Namely it's the plot that leaves a lot to be desired and frankly speaking that should have been the biggest game selling point. But still it's worth to try.
For a modern gamer this game is not much more than a lesson of video games history. For older gamers it may be a sweet nostalgia trip. But is this a good game? Yes, it is. Of course you need to see through the layer of completely oldschool graphics, dated audio, and some cheesiness, but if you can do it you will be able to enjoy a pretty good adventure / point-and-click game, an investigation story set in near future. I would not recommend it to younger gamers, maybe only as a curiosity, but older ones will surely enjoy this trip to the past.
