Taggart, The Equalizer, Poirot, Angela Lansbury – what do they all have in common? They were great murder mystery heroes who tackled the murky world of crime to apprehend murderers and assassins. Nowadays, many of them have been taken off the airwaves but fear not, you can recreate your own murder mysteries with these excellent games. From Cluedo style to all-out gun thuggery, there’s something here to suit all tastes.
- MDK (Murder Death Kill) – The name says it all
- Hero Online – Based on a Chinese novel
- Agatha Christie: Death on the Nile – Classic adventure
- Call of Juarez – Be Clint Eastwood in this western style murder mystery
- Dead Reefs – Catch the loony that’s running around killing people on a desert island
Now all we need is for someone to turn The Equalizer into a game. The title sequence alone would be worth every penny.
