And Then There Were None Reviews
Several web sites have reviewed the new adventure game based on the Agatha Christie novel:
- GamingExcellence gave it a "mediocre" score of 6.8, saying, "Unfortunately adventure games made in the mid 90ís with full motion video look better than this game and it's [sic] 3D marionettes."
- USA Today gave it a similar numeric score of 3.5 stars out of 5, but was kinder in the actual review. The reviewer concluded, "And Then There Were None is a challenging game that should appeal to both murder mystery fans and adventure gamers who prefer a slower-paced head-scratcher than a mindless shoot-em-up."
