Women_s_Murder_Club__A_Darker_Shade_of_GreyWomen's Murder Club: A Darker Shade of Grey -

 

Women's Murder Club: A Darker Shade of Grey is a new release of a hit hidden object game to please all of the fans of the genre. Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you to the new piece of art from Floodlight Games and I-play.

 

 

This second installment in the Women's Murder Club series deals with the death of a young student at a military academy.

 

Women_s_Murder_Club__A_Darker_Shade_of_GreyAt first, his fall from a cliff seems like little more than a tragic jogging accident, and the school's headmaster is eager to have the case closed – a little too eager for Detective Lindsay Boxer's liking.

 

With a little help from medical examiner Claire Washburn and reporter Cindy Thomas, Lindsay begins digging deeper into the so-called accident.

 

During the course of the investigation, you'll play as all three characters, though the bulk of your time will be spent helping  Lindsay uncover clues and gather evidence.

 

Gameplay alternates between puzzle solving segments and hidden object levels, though they're not quite the kind of hidden object scenarios you're used to. Instead of scanning an attic for three swords, a top hat, a baseball and a boot, you search an office for the remnants of a shredded fax or a desk for boxes of microfiche.

A Darker Shade of Grey is sharp, intelligent, and inventive, but it does disappoint in two minor ways. First, the levels in which you play as medical examiner Claire are pointless and annoying. 

 

Secondly, the cutscenes that advance the story between chapters go by at a snail's pace, and there's no way to speed them up. 

 

These are minor annoyances only, though, in what is otherwise a smart, inventive and thoroughly entertaining game.
