    "Meh, steer clear from this game. The UI is terrible and the whole game just terribly reeks of incompetence. Please for the love of God do not get this game."

    "Who Is The Killer? Episode 1 has one of the greatest storylines I've ever played on a IPhone. I was not expecting to be so impressed by a mobile game, but this game made me change my mind. The story revolves around solving a murder case and it was so engaging. As more people were killed I was motivated more and more to find the killer and see how the story would end."

    "The rating for this app is designated as Teen, so if you're looking for a family friendly story type game, this one wouldn't be a good fit for you. There is some graphic content, and the story line is survival, thus you can loot and other things that are considered illegal in a non game world."

    "The choice of game is good but takes extra research to discover if it's actually an iphone game. The solution takes you to the Steam page which isn't for iPhone games at all, it's for PC games"
