Add my review
As the game begins, you are given a briefing of your mission. Gather up all state-of-the-art spy tools (night vision goggles, a digital camera, PDA, lock picks, evidence kit, a standard issue revolver, handcuffs and badge) and then head out to follow their trail. As you explore the various locations, take photographs, pick up pieces of evidence and talk with people. Use your Newton PDA to access the navigational map, to make notes and send/receive e-mail. Trace telephone numbers, run background checks and license plate ids and even post an All Points Bulletin on missing persons using the computer network at your home or office. By using photo viewer software, download field photographs to the computer where they can be enlarged and studied more closely for clues.
Features include emotion icons for interjecting different tones during conversations (mean, humorous or technical) which effect the answer given. An in-game hint system, Artificial Intelligence, can be set on or off. In addition, there are multiple endings as a direct result of actions you take.
A real episode and an outstanding investigation
By Jack Anderson on August 8, 2018
This game is quite something! First, it feels like a real episode of The X-Files.
Many bad episodes from the series had no investigation whatsoever. This is definitely not the case here, as the game is based on a terrific real investigation. Playing the game really feels like being an FBI agent and doing formal analysis. We try to solve murders, investigations, just terrific.
As you all know, movies are about locations, locations, locations. Well, this game has really great locations. It's always dark, even in the middle of the day, in a typical X-Files-like atmosphere.
While the game can feel very old today, it was definitely interesting. You could really feel leading an FBI case and that was kind of cool.
A fascinating game at the time, who has not aged very well. I still give it 7 out of 10. Excellent.
