"Back From The Dead"
Murdered: Soul Suspect immediately draws you in with an interesting premise - you're dead. Yes, the main character is a ghost and you, the player, have to guide them through a series of puzzles and challenges in order to solve your own murder and move on. In addition to the main story, there are several other lost souls you can assist along the way.
The setting for this game is Salem, Massachusetts, and it's the perfect place for this story. The city is modern, but at the same time creepy, and there's a lot of information scattered around about Salem's dark past. Although the city is not a true open world, there are plenty of areas to explore. Collectibles scattered around the town add another dimension to the gameplay. Many of the collectibles found in various areas provide the player with a rich and unique scary story.
Unfortunately, the gameplay is the most frustrating aspect of Murdered: Soul Suspect. The controls are a little clunky, and sometimes this is frustrating when you are trying to take care of demons or walk through walls. Combat is not really found in this game; as you play, you'll only need to find clues and solve puzzles to get closer to the truth. Sometimes it can be really frustrating to find a hidden clue - especially since some of the areas seem to still have bugs. The side quests found in the city are unique and fun, although they are all very easy.
Murdered: Soul Suspect does the story right, so if you are interested in mysteries or horror games, this should be on your wishlist. Just be aware that when it comes to gameplay, the controls aren't as smooth as some other third-person games, and you won't find battles or combat here. Murdered: Soul Suspect is available on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.
