Cause of Death is one of those games that you have to treasure. It has something great for you whether you love action, suspense, mystery, or romance. It is AMAZINGLY written and has all the details needed to get addicted. You get extremely attached to characters and they are incredibly thought out and different. The plot is VERY well-developed and keeps you hanging. Team Jacob and Edward? OUT! Team Gale and Peeta? In, but that's not my point. Maltara deserves to be the new thing. It's just as good as anything else, probably better. Mal and's different with them. There's no sparkling vampires or love-sick teenagers having to choose between two guys. (And don't get me wrong, I ADORE both those series). With Mal and Natara, there's just this strong, deep emotion. There's a guy who loves this woman more than life and there's that woman who feels the same way about him but tries to deny it. EA, you have excellent writers and don't listen to people complain about ads. CoD is worth so much more and ads are no reason to delete such a great game. My suggestion? Make Maltara come more often. People go crazy for that and you guys are amazing at it. And don't make the Maltara moment where they actually confess like Twilight. Make it like what you did with Gil. Make it perfect. I have no complaints whatsoever. The game is fantastic. -Katie


This app is A•M•A•Z•I•N•G... To be honest, I like this so much better than the similar app Surviving High School. I'm on volume 5. I love how on EA's interactive games have different endings and everything. Not to mention how funny it is to do everything wrong on purpose, lol. :3 When I first started and did Volume 1, I was instantly hooked but took about 2 hours to complete.
I can't believe Eric was the mask maker. When there was flashbacks of Eric, his sister and mother I sorta felt bad. I didn't understand why he only killed redheads until I saw his sister. I also didn't get the “Show your true face.” part, but now I get it.
Rebecca was a redhead and was really rude to Eric, called him a freak, monster, ect. And the mother always agreed with Rebecca. One day Eric is sent away because his mother and sister don't like him. That day Eric kills Rebecca.
From then on, he thought redheads were evil and there true faces need to be shown. Eric thought Rebecca was perfect, beautiful, amazing, but inside she was a hideous. He was crushed inside, and grew a hatred toward anyone with red hair. He wanted to demolish the red hair population.
It was very shocking, but Eric is just as evil as his sister...


God, I can't express how much I worship this game. I give my shoutouts to Winchester and Rasputin, and suggest you look on the Cause of Death Facebook page to understand that instead of calling me crazy! My motto is "Think Like a Profiler" and I covered my chalkboard from sayings from this game! Everything that I think about or do reminds me of this game. I do Cause of Death trivia with my friends every day, and half of my jewelry is CoD related! And I see on some of these reviews that the Now Airing episode isn't loading or you don't know if the game has ended or not. I have a word if advice- always check the Facebook page! It has all of the Episode on Demand and Now Airing episode announcements, they ask you cool and fun questions, and you know immediately if there is the new episode up or there is a Now Airing issue or what crazy questions that will ask us next… they asked us what our favorite part of Volume 11 was. And to all of you people who played at least the seventh chapter if Volume 11, you know how the answers to that question were. That is proof that there is no filter in Facebook. I have no complaints about this game and hope it goes on for much, much longer!!❤
Oh, and MALTARA!
