Murdered
I’m sure the big question that has been on the minds of gamers across the world is, what if John McClane was killed in Die Hard? That’s the premise of Murdered: Soul Suspect, except our lead hero, Ronan O’Connor, is stuck in Dusk, a limbo-like environment where demons roam and devour unsuspecting ghosts. It’s up to you to solve the greatest mystery of all: your own murder. It’s an interesting concept to say the least, and from we’ve seen, it’s shaping up to a unique experience. Most games go for gritty action packed combat while Murdered focuses on investigation techniques mixed together with stealth mechanics. Offering one of the most compelling adventures, there was nothing like Murdered: Soul Suspect on the show floor.
