Not really. I mean, the detective is in black and white and wearing a fedora, so there's that.

This is the weakest element of the game. Instead of going out and finding clues and join in together in a meaningful way, you just spam the use button around the world until you got right ones and get the right set through trial and error.

The main story is excellent with a lot of mystery to it. The little side stories you get for finding objects are pretty good, too.

The setting is sort of a stylized Salem, Mass. at night. Has a busy, tourist town feel to it.

I don't know how to judge this. It uses some old detective tropes, for sure, but a lot of the side stories are pretty interesting.

How sneaky can you be in Murdered: Soul Suspect?

The demon sequences require stealth. You can move from hiding place to hiding place while watching the behavior of the demons as you prepare for "takedowns". Sneaking completely by them is not really an option.

How open is Murdered: Soul Suspect to explore?

After the first couple of scenes, you have the freedom to explore the town as you move to the next designated area. The town is not that large, however. If you require a huge open world type of thing, this isn't it.

How hard are the puzzles in Murdered: Soul Suspect?

They remind me of adventure and hidden object type puzzles. They aren't hard at all, but require careful looking. You do have to be able to think through the clues and put them together properly, but even in these sequences the difficulty level is low.

Considering it goes on sale pretty frequently for almost nothing, wait for a sale.
