Tex Murphy was the lead character in games such as Under A Killing Moon and The Pandora Directive. Now he returns in a story of events that occurred before either of these two Access adventures.
This five-disk interactive movie game starring Michael York and Rebecca Broussard puts you in the character of Tex Murphy, a private investigator in San Francisco some time in the middle of the 21st century.
This adventure is Tex' very first case. It opens with the arrival of a drop-dead gorgeous female client who is convinced that her father was murdered, even though his death was officially deemed a suicide. It's up to you to solve the case by tackling numerous riddles and puzzles and interviewing several shady characters.
The game is full of fully 3D-rendered locations and cinematic video clips, as well as hours of dialogue. There are two levels of play: the "Entertainment" mode which is full of hints for first time players and the "Gamer" mode which awards extra points to players who delve deeper into the case. ~ Nick Smith, All Game Guide
