4.0 out of 5 stars Not Perfect, but VERY Engaging... January 7, 2010
By Atticus
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I am a HUGE Agatha Christie fan, and have read numerous of her novels. EVIL UNDER THE SUN is not one of them. I thought it might be fun to play the game instead, so, when I recieved it as a Christmas gift, I was eager to pop it into the Wii and give it a shot.

EVIL UNDER THE SUN is not your average Wii game. In fact, it is more like a PC game on a Wii console. You do not use Wii motion sensors for hardly anything (okay, maybe one brief thing). There is no aiming, or shooting, or swinging, or anything like that. This is an entirely point-and-click game. So, anyone looking for a Wii physical game won't be satisfied with this one.

If you're still with me, I'll tell you what it's like to play the game. It is not an action-packed game. There aren't any gunfights or weapons or fighting. It is a mystery game, in which nothing is given to you. You really must use your "little grey cells" to navigate through the game. There are several tricky spots that might require some online aid. However, I find it a completely riveting game. Some might find it slow, but I think it's fun. If you like to solve puzzles and you don't mind thinking while you play a video game, I think you'll enjoy it too.

Another review has mentioned that it gets slow watching Poirot walk everywhere. Indeed, you don't have unlimited access to the entire island where the game takes place. You must walk everywhere. However, once you figure out where everything on the island is, it gets less frustrating. I also found that if you press the "A" or "B" button while Poirot is walking, it automatically brings him to his destination.

What are the graphics like? Good enough to tell the story, but not better. The music is beautiful, but is rarely heard.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you like mysteries, this is a well-done game July 10, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I am an Agatha Christie mystery fan, and they did a good job with this game. There are parts that are a little annoying at first, like the time it takes to walk all over, but when you figure out where everything is, and you can figure out what is going on so you know where you need to go, then that part isn't a problem anymore. It is a point and click game, but it is a mystery game- not a action game- so it works well. I have other games for action. The characters and voices are done very well, very consistent with the books. If you like Agatha Christie, you will like this game. I'm hope they make more A.C. books into Wii games. I can't compare this game with similar titles, as I haven't played 'And then they were none', or the nancy drew game because of poor reviews, but if they don't come out with another one of these soon, I might have to try those out too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable and goes for a while June 4, 2010

I just finished this game. It has enough variety of directions to be interesting. The culprit is not so obvious, which is good for keeping your attention. Good response of the guiding elements. Confess I used a walkthrough after getting stuck a couple of times.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK Game For Poirot & AC Fans December 28, 2009
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Keep in mind that, aside from a few maneuvers with the remote that simulate utilizing tools (screw driver, file, brush, wrench, etc.) and playing darts (yes, playing darts), this game is completely point and click. Graphics are kind of choppy though there are some nice ones to be seen throughout the game (hotel lobby, guests' rooms). Game play is intuitive for the most part (You find a clue at one point and will eventually figure out where it can be used at another), however there were several items that just didn't make much sense initially. There is a sense of logic to the game ( For example, I HAD NOT found the secret keyhole before i found the key, but based on where I found the key (the character who had it hidden) and what else I had found along with the key, I had a hunch on where it might be used. Upon further investigation, my hunch was correct and found where it belonged.
I did have to find an internet source to decipher zodiac signs (thought the lending library in the game would have helped me on that) and had to repeat,from a previously saved point, the "bath salts test" (there should have been a way around this if you got the order wrong, but instead the game just sat at standstill until I reloaded it: So DO SAVE THE GAME OFTEN). Other than that, I was able to finish it in a few days without the aid of a walk through.
Personally, I did enjoy it though it was short. You will enjoy the game if: A. You're an AC & Poirot fan B. You don't mind some watered down graphics C. You have some patience (Instead of resorting to an internet walkthrough, think about things awhile and apply some common logic, it will often pan out for you (Isn't it better to gain through your own little gray cells than just grabbing it from a walk through?)
Once you finish the game- And you will- Check out BOTH the Ustinov and Suchet film versions of Evil Under the Sun or better yet, read the book: You'll find the developers of the game borrowed from all three!

If you are a fan of Agatha Christie and PC type games, you will not be disappointed. This game moves like a PC game would but the story/ mystery is so captivating. you can't go wrong with agatha christie.
