I am not a fan of this series, as the map is almost useless, and response time is sluggish. Overall, the storyline is awkward and trite. I may not finish as it is almost a chore to continue.

We're Off To A University To Study: Murder 101!


My favorite type of genre is one that does not involve chasing after supernatural entities and instead presents a real-life murder mystery in which I become completely immersed within the plot as it unfolds.

This is why "Dead Reckoning" is one of my favorite series. Each successive sequel continues to capture my attention with engaging twists and suspenseful story lines, set within true-to-life locations. In this sequel, I am thrilled to return to university life, vicariously re-living those days when I was a student, except this time I get to solve a murder mystery. One particular aspect I admire in this series is that the characters' personalities are usually fleshed out, thanks to the investigative nature of the plot. I love how this developer puts a refreshing spin on gameplay, implementing state-of-the-art technology utilized by hi-tech institutions. For example, you utilize a tablet — equipped with various Apps — which functions as an all-in-one guide to help you get around.

The interrogative techniques are revamped with a contemporary flair; however, I won't disclose those details to avoid ruining your surprise. One remark about the teleport map is that you need to directly click on the light blue color beneath the indicators to transport to locations; otherwise, you might find yourself clicking endlessly, while remaining stationary.

The sometimes-challenging HOSs incorporate unique interactions and implement technological elements. In one particular scene, I loved the creativity in finding the differences between split-paneled depictions in a newspaper. I am surprised that a few scenes are revisited, although the formats are altered. Some of the puzzles are technologically oriented, thus complementing the theme of the storyline. The pinball-machine game was fun and offered a nice degree of difficulty. Be sure to tap everywhere because there are a lot of amusing achievements to fulfill relating to student life, such as waking up a sleeping student.

One trivial gripe is that the graphics are still fuzzy. However, the reason I deducted a star is because teleporting from the map is like being stuck on a deserted island — you just can't get off it. Other than that, this is a solid game, and hence the 4 stars.


HOG nut!

It's simple, but fun. Play this series with my nieces and nephews.
