If you're like this writer and enjoy even a decent police procedural game – especially in a medium where they're dishearteningly absent – Agatha Christie: The ABC Murders is a deserving title in your mystery fiction library. The video game adaptation may lack presentation value, but a strong plot, fun deductions, and a rewarding conclusion make up for it in the end.
Instead, players are given an enjoyable, yet awfully short trip through one of Poirot’s signature adventures. It’s a lot to ask $39.99 for such a short game, so price-conscious gamers might want to wait for a price drop. This won’t rival Frogwares’ best work, but it is a fun way to enjoy an afternoon if you enjoy detective games.
Overall, The ABC Murders is an enjoyable mystery for the little time that it lasts, but it does have its flaws. The voice acting can be below par at times, which can work against its attempt to take things seriously. Fans of Poirot will certainly take something away from the experience, but it's a shame that after completing it once there isn't much reason to play it a second time.
