A few weeks ago I reviewed the hidden object game, Twin Moons from G5 Entertainment. In my mind, hidden object games fall into two categories. Free roaming, in which you move around freely and must discover your next steps and Guided, where the game takes you to a scene and you must find the list of items.
The latter has a tendency to be a little boring to me because I usually can’t get into the story line. But today I’m looking at Righteous Kill 2 from G5. Righteous Kill 2 is a guided hidden object game which shows you scenes and gives you a list of items to find. What makes Righteous Kill better than other guided hidden object games is the story line. You play the role of a NYPD Investigator Erica Dean who is trying to solve a series of murders by the mysterious “Poet Killer”.
Righteous Kill 2 gives you the chance to play some mini games which gives you a little variety. One of the games lets you dust for fingerprints on several items in order to find evidence. As you find items, you are led to different locations and more crime scenes. Eventually you must revisit certain scenes in order to unlock more clues.
Righteous Kill 2 Features:
- 21 crime scene locations
- 16 original mini-games
- Police files for 11 victims
- Heart-pounding twists and turns
- Richly detailed, changing environments
So far the graphics have been excellent and the difficulty level is just right. There have been a few items that I had to use the hint on. One negative, some of the scenes are a little too dark and make it difficult to make out small items. But for the most part, the scenes are great and the game play is entertaining. I haven’t solved Righteous Kill yet but I am actually pretty involved in the story line and am looking forward to solving the mystery of the “Poet Killer” .
