5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT game! October 30, 2007
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've loved all of the Agatha Christie games. They're well thought out and a true mystery game. Of course, being based off of the books does help! One reason I really love these games is because you get to meet different characters and investigate, interrogate, etc. It's not full of puzzles you HAVE to complete in order to continue on with the game. It doesn't have action sequences where you're worrying about your character being killed and having to go back and try again. The main characteristics are learning the suspects, finding the clues and coming to the conclusion of the murder.

It also has 7 different Acts, so the game lasts a good amount of time. I highly recommend this game for any adventure game lover and murder mystery fan!

4.0 out of 5 stars The good continues, the evil begins... October 27, 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The 3rd episode, long awaited Evil Under the Sun is here.

Graphics? Good as you are used of TAC. Close-ups of the characters are not the best - but it is a minor flaw only.

Sound ? The best of the three games. I very much liked the door and ambient effects, and the fact that, almost on each act, the background music changes.

Dialogs? Very good. Emphasizing Poirot's humor. Poor Hastings can almost never put his own little gray cells to work! The voices are also loud and very clear.

Plot? Interesting. Everyone who has read the book will agree that the plot in the game does not resemble the book with accuracy. Although this might be considered a flaw, I am satisfied - because you will encounter things that were not in the book.

And a nice gift, a very innovative hint system with a moving finger (say, is the Moving Finger the next TAC Agatha Christie game ?).

Advantages:

- Nice gfx, sound, and control system (unlimited (as far as I could see) saves).
- Good plot, no flaws.
- Lots of humor.
- Includes text for the dialogs. (Very important for me).
- Nice and logic , inventory-based riddles. Oh yes, and 1 rather easy puzzle-type riddle found in Linda Marshall's room.
- Full install, play without CDs.

Disadvantages:

- A bit short
- A bit easy
- A bit non-evil ; Good as a game - but no match for the book as far as the atmosphere is considered.
- Some bugs in the graphics ; Not critical, but annoying. Save F2 and Load F3 will do a needed job.
- No book included - Why ? Previous 2 games included the book in the box :(
- No alternative ending. The murderer is the same as in the book - what differs is the method of their 'arrest'.

4.0 out of 5 stars A wild journey through criminal minds May 25, 2008
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Agatha Christie: Evil Under the Sun is AWE Game's third Agatha Christie adaptation for the PC, and as such, has made admirable improvements over its predecessors, with a few small glitches. Based on Dame Agatha's Evil under the Sun (Hercule Poirot Mysteries), it is the tale of seemingly unrelated guests vacationing on a nearly-deserted British island early in WWII. However, all is not quiet in this apparent paradise; Arlena Stuart-Marshall, a rich and beautiful actress, turns up dead on an isolated beach, and nearly everyone has some connection either to the murder or the strange goings-on on Seadrift Island.

The game opens with the unique premise that Poirot and Hastings are in Poirot's London apartment during an air raid, and in order to distract themselves, Poirot offers to retell the details of his latest case, which received scant publicity due to being upstaged by Hitler. Poirot offers the services of the Finger of Suspicion, a "magical" device that helps eliminate suspects if you get stuck. During the tale, Hastings will jump back and forth between Seadrift Island, 1940 and Poirot's London office as the two share details of the case.

Unlike the previous AWE game Agatha Christie : Murder on the Orient Express, where you played as Poirot (voiced by David Suchet, the BBC Poirot), in EUtS you play as Poirot's friend Captain Hastings as you retrace Poirot's footsteps leading up the the murder and its investigation. However, your physical appearance is that of Poirot, and your thoughts alternate between Hastings and Poirot as the two banter about clues and suspects. Sound confusing? It is at times.

4.0 out of 5 stars Christie fans will enjoy November 9, 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is the second AC game I've played in the series. I thought overall, it was more enjoyable than Murder on the Orient Express. What I liked about EUTS is that you don't seem to spend as much time doing silly things that don't relate to the story (although you still have to do some.) Another helpful feature is that you have a list of tasks to complete during the scene; i.e. "Read article about Miss Porter's School" and "Help Linda build a blind for birds." I felt like with MOTOE you could wander around helplessly lost for hours. As with the other AC games, you still collect items and use combinations of them to help you on your way--but what's great about EUTS is that you can tell if something is a combination by just hovering over the second tool, you don't have to click on each combo and hear the annoying "I don't think that's a good idea" speech 20 times.

The graphics are beautiful, and the voices aren't bad (although Christine Redfern is a bit annoying and I miss David Suchet as Poirot.) On the flip side, unless you save your current game frequently, you might have to repeat your moves because there are quite a few system crashes that you'll experience.

Overall, I think if you are a fan of AC and Poirot, you will enjoy the game despite the glitches. The games seem to be as addicting as the books are to read; I just hope we don't have to wait a year inbetween releases!
