For some, the gaudy and selectively-primitive aesthetic of Paradise Killer will be a huge selling point. For others, including myself, they’ll be met with raised eyebrows and a shrug. Despite that indifference, the narrative at the heart of the game was wholly engrossing from its foundation to its conclusion. The gameplay can only hope to limp along in support of that narrative, which is disappointing but never makes for a frustrating or outright boring experience.
There are very few murder mystery games that give you as much agency as Paradise Killer does. Although it takes a little while to get into the swing of things, when you’re deep in your investigation, coming across key pieces of evidence or catching your suspects out in a lie, you feel unstoppable. And having the power to make an accusation, right or wrong, is a very nice touch too.
Paradise Killer drips with endearing style and charm, but can't quite make its finale match up to its opening hours. Discovering intrigue and mystery is compelling at the start, but the good gets lost in its collectible busywork. Paradise Killer is a good option for virtual detective fanatics in need of new mysteries, but it lacks the staying power of other modern mystery giants.
