The first cases of Agatha Christie’s detective Hercule Poirot.

The agatha christie – hercule poirot: the first cases xbox is an interactive game that allows players to investigate, er, the first cases of Hercule Poirot.

REVIEW – A fresh and unique Poirot tale has come, a few years after the game version of The ABC Murders, in which the detective is handed a fairly difficult case (when he is still young), despite the fact that it does not seem to be one at first. This time, Microids’ Francophone licensing rampage has gotten it right.

 

Thank you for the French translation! The game may be played entirely in English, with the characters speaking in either French or German. And, given that Poirot is Belgian, it’s no surprise that he speaks a little French now and again, isn’t it? (Now I’m doing it as well…)

Bracelet

 

The prologue, the first chapter of the ten-part game, serves as an introduction to the gameplay. This brief narrative and inquiry is connected to the major events, although it may also be read alone. While on patrol, a servant approaches Poirot and begs for assistance: a bracelet has gone missing from the prominent Van Den Bosch house. Even if she is not completely clean, the widowed lady of the house blames another young servant girl. I won’t give anything away about what occurs in Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot: The First Cases, but this gives you an idea of what to anticipate.

So we start with isometric gameplay, and we’re meant to explore the garden at first. Poirot points out what he can look at the screen, and his subtitled ideas are accompanied by a loud (mhm, aha, oh) response. Along with this, he must, of course, interrogate the characters on their knowledge. However, they may take a defensive posture at times, and you must shatter their “shield” by selecting the appropriate conversation choice. You may get a genuine or violent response from young Poirot, for example. (And if you get it incorrect, you don’t get the epilogue summing up the characters’ future when the detective has the image all put together; if you fail in the final chapter, I believe you don’t get the epilogue summing up the characters’ future when the detective has the picture all put together.)

It wouldn’t be a Poirot game if the detective’s mind wasn’t used to its full potential. Indeed, his tiny grey brain cells (as he refers to them; for style and tone, I believe he nailed David Suchet’s, which is excellent!) must be used. When the exclamation mark appears in the top right corner, there are new elements that can be connected, and if you need help, the game will highlight what is connected to what (e.g. one character saw the other two arguing; thus proving the alibi of all three), and the mind map will gradually come together. We also receive one or two new ones each chapter on average. When we discover fresh significance, we are compelled to examine a situation or speak with someone again, which advances our research. Don’t worry: as I previously said, there’s a little possibility of a game over, and the investigator never finds himself in a life-threatening scenario.

Murder

 

I’m going to include the soundtrack. I believe it captures the mood that we have come to anticipate from television adaptations.

 

 

 

If you mess up the mind mapping, or if you succeed (seriously, it’s like 22 kHz instead of 44…), Poirot’s voice quality in both English and French is relatively low (I switched to French because the cat’s English voice in Blacksad: Under The Skin, which is another Microids game, was weak, while the French was excellent…), if you mess up the mind mapping, or if you succeed (seriously, it’s like 22 The dubbing quality is adequate, in my opinion, although there are French words in the English dubbing, and there are some changes when switching to French, but this is just nitpicking on my part.

The ambiance is pleasant, but I believe Poirot moves slowly, which is annoying when moving between two levels on a regular basis. Oh, and then there’s the more famous case: this time (a few years later), Poirot is hired as a detective to look into the blackmail letters. Angeline, the Van Den Bosch family’s daughter, is ready to be married. Despite the fact that the meal is nice, a murder occurs, adding even another dimension to our inquiry. It turns out to be a very severe situation, which explains why you’ll be spending nine chapters in the castle.

In short: we have Angeline has become more serious; the deceased individual has/had a significant position with both VDBs; Madame Van Den Bosch (Cassandra) continues to reject us; Comtesse de Vos seems to be a completely good character at first, but she develops a sinister side over time. Archibald Sterling and Rehana (the butler and cook) are difficult to crack; Gedeon Demir (Cassandra’s son-in-law) and his brother Zakariya are two very different characters (the latter is not a drinker by accident); and Gedeon Demir (Cassandra’s son-in-law) and his brother Zakariya are two very different characters (the latter is not a drinker by accident). Jackie Conrad is a harsh figure (at the time, I’d call her a media mogul) who we first see when she argues with Hugo Beckers (the worker also plays a part in the background events); Ernesto da Silva doesn’t speak much, but he does so in vain; and last, there’s Inge (the servant girl of the castle). In the instance of the bracelet, I felt particularly sad for the suspected servant girl, who was undoubtedly innocent but who had lost her job and income.

Despite the fact that I believe the game is rather unattractive (and although the sketched characters convey emotions during conversation, I didn’t like for Poirot’s grimacing face…), it is not short in duration. It takes around 9-10 hours to complete, although there isn’t much in the way of location. It might have benefited from a bit more diversity.

 

 

 

Blackmail

 

During the credits, I was debating whether it should be a six or an eight out of 10. But after a day of deliberation, I decided on 8. The narrative is excellent and nicely written, however it doesn’t get a nine due of certain audiovisual flaws. For Poirot enthusiasts and those who desire a detective game, Agatha Christie – Hercule Poirot: The First Cases is recommended: the creators (Blazing Griffin) have borrowed certain features from their previous game (Murder Mystery Machine), but I don’t believe that’s an issue. Poirot never walks up or down the stairs, and we never see him open or shut the doors…

-V-

Pro:

+ Excellent style adaption + Complex plot; you wouldn’t guess the evil guy at first… + Three languages have been dubbed; this may enhance the atmosphere.

Against:

– I believe the game is a little unattractive – Poirot’s “inner voice quality” – Traversing feels a little sluggish.


Microids is the publisher.

Blazing Griffin is the creator of this game.

Isometric inquiry is a genre.

The film will be released on September 27, 2021.
