"A detective hot on the trail of a serial killer is nothing new but it can be something that, if done properly, will create an interesting enough story to pull in consumers. Now make that detective someone who has recently been killed and must try to find the truth about his killer and you have a great sounding concept. As such when Murdered: Soul Suspect was first announced, it garnered quite a bit of attention. However now that the game has been released, does Murdered: Soul Suspect stand any chance of being memorable?"
